    The Christmas Sleigh - [out now!]

    Hello Clickers,

    a couple months ago I had a Christmas-themed game idea (and I see I was not the only ),
    I thought it would have been super-nice if I could be able to pull it out this little idea in just a month, right for Christmas.
    Well... I couldn't
    so I took it quietly and completed it with calm and peace of mind.

    And here's the game on Google Play:
    https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...hristmassleigh

    This is a small project but passionately made,
    it fits among the crowded and perhaps not very interesting "endless runners" genre,
    but comes with some quite different mechanics that I hope will make it interesting and pleasing,
    among these:
    - you must manage "momentum" to get the best range out of your sleigh, by cleverly using your boost power
    - the quicker you go, the quicker your boost (magic power) will recharge, and the slower the clock will turn
    (latter ideas coming from electrical vehicles and relativity )

    There are three main play modes,
    and four characters you can choose from, each with different skills.

    2-minutes video trailer:



    The real thing looks better though!

    For you (we) Fusion-lovers I think it includes some nice features,
    at least for an Android game:

    - multiplayer mode up to 4 players (thanks to google play game services)
    - smooth auto-zooming up to 10x
    - endless random (seeded and partly "driven") level generation
    - move backwards (yeah, not really sounds as a mindblowing feature, but I'd say that's not entirely common in endless runners!)
    - the juicy custom sleigh movement you will be pleased to try out
    - colorful night-day cycles and lighting through RGB coefficients manipulation

    It's meant to be a relaxing anti-stress with seasonal look and music,
    very easy, simple and intuitive to play, but with potential challenge for game-demanding tastes,
    including four leaderboards, eighteen achievements, and of course the joy of beating your friends in head-to-head matches

    Comes free to play with a top banner and few (optional) interstitial ads.
    Unlockable banner-free version, or "purchasable" for a small fee
    ("optional" interstitials will persist, but you can choose to "use" them or not).

    Hope it will run fine on most devices,
    it did on the few (decent, but not top-of-the-market phones) I've been able to test it on.

    It's a 1.0 so I expect something, somewhere, to go wrong
    feel free to report here, will make for potential future updates.
    Don't report the occasional crash,
    I consider it a tribute to google services, whose own app boldly crashes...

    Thanks for reading so far, and for giving the game a try if it suits your taste!

    This was a lot of fun Schrodinger! I love your graphics, and it's cute when the character raises it's hands while going down a hill! The snow is awesome, how did you do that! It has a nice glow-ish effect to it. I found the challenge mode to be a lot of fun, and the adventure mode was really relaxing. I didn't feel stressed out like a lot of endless runners make you feel. Great job overall!

    thank you all!
    I'm glad you had good impression of the game,
    appreciate all your kind comments

    @ beejers: thank you very much for trying it out and giving feedback!
    All visuals are vector graphics exported at decent resolutions and alpha channel,
    snow has little lower resolution (because it's bigger "chunks" of graphics and would have hurted performance)
    so I painted trasparent area in white,
    this gives that "glowish" effect upon scaling, when the alpha is not perfectly matched and shows some faded white
    Then there are "full white" blocks at the bottom of snow chunks that get resized to fill the screen area
    on larger zoom pans this gives the "full snow" result.
    Oh and very glad to hear it was relaxing - that was my aim,
    no disrupting chasms to jump, just sit and flow on the snow

    @ SHINBAXTER: eheh yeah I fast-forwarded the trailer a bit there to show the night cycle progression more clearly
    If you have some spare time I've tested it most of the time on pc with an android emulator,
    I mostly used Leapdroid, it's the one who gave better results,
    it's discontinued now (they've been acquired by google..) but it's stil the best free option available imo,
    if you can find some of the free Leapdroid downloads still around you could try The Christmas Sleigh with decent results on a pc
    (eheh I know you guys are making a super nice multiplayer game, wish you the best luck )

    Thanks zip2kx!
    Yeah, I wish it was too, should've been more fitting publishing during the holidays,
    ...and of course one wishes it should be always Christmas,
    I still have the Christmas tree right behind my monitor here
    (not sure if it's more lazyness or love for Xmas though )

    Online play thanks to Fernando's awesome GPG suite of objects,
    I always liked the idea of online multiplayer,
    but so far renting a decent server was out of my plans,
    instead, with these APIs implemented you can take advantage of Google reliable service
    (which -afaik- actually "tunnels" among devices, once the match is setup, not passing through an intermediate server)
    and be sure your game will be covered at least as long as Google is around.

    I've now updated the game on Google Play to version 1.1,
    (not sure it's already available online, if not should be soon)
    some improvements and minor bugfixes,
    many thanks to elvisish for his much valuable reporting!
