Hi Fishies,

I just wanted to add to the OP: This thread has been reserved for reviews only.

If you have any questions about someone else’s review (even if you feel that their review contains incorrect details about this game) please contact that user directly via PM instead of replying to or quoting their post as this can develop into a discussion that is not suitable to the review thread.

While the reviews in this thread are first and foremost helpful to other players, they also tell us and all who were involved in making this game, what you liked/disliked most, what you’d like to see more/less of in future games, etc. This can only help us in continuing to provide better games, which is what we all want!

We want to ensure that everyone who visits this thread can easily find the reviews that they’re looking for, so the Moderation Team will be proactively removing any off-topic posts (i.e. non-reviews) that pop up in this thread.

For any non-review related posts, please feel free to create a "Comments" thread in this Game Forum if there isn't one already. You can always create a new thread for any game questions or tips.

Thank you!

bfgBaikal

The game works fine, and I would have enjoyed it but for two things:

1) The music, which is a) annoying and b) nothing to do with Christmas - and if you switch it off, you lose sound effects too.

2) You only get one life, and if you touch (bump into) any of the baddies, that's it, game over.

It's a no-buy for me, which is a shame because I really liked the look of it.

the game is not for us, you only get one life and one time to do what needs to be done. NO buy.---------------doug & lisa

You only get one life per level but if you die, you just restart the level. You don't have to get all the items to complete the level, just get to the end of the street. It's a very simplistic game. I'm surprised games like this are still being made.

Are you kidding me? Santa's sleigh gets hit by a missile? Is Santa filing for bankruptcy? Worst storyline EVER!

 

Thanks for all your comments

Hi and thanks to all the posters for your comments on Santa vs Banker.

We're just a small group of animators and programmers based in Ireland and this is our first release. We're very excited to have our game available for download on Big Fish Games.

We're keeping an eye on your feedback and are taking your comments on board.

In fact, we intend on bringing a lot of new features into the next release like the 3-lives concept and separating our the backing track from the sound effects. All great suggestions so thanks once again for your ideas/comments.

Although I don't usually play platforms, I might have made an exception for this one. Unfortunately, the levels are timed. This added to the one life, the lack of ways to kill enemies, and the other mentioned problems makes this not a game for me.

Please accept my advice . Pull out the game from the Big Fish Games store and rewrite it from the scratch or release it as a free online flash game .

- no real option menu ( you can only enable / disable the "music " )
- no real fullscreen mode ( i can only set up a big windowed mode on my widescreen monitor )
- poor graphics
- poor gameplay
- only 8 levels
