This is my submission for the Yoyo Games Winter Competition. I made it in just about three days. It's a comical arcade minigame, with lots of humor splashed in. Hope you like it!

Story:
Sherman the snow monster has a problem: the annoying creatures of winter are trying to get into his cave! Help Sherman punch, kick, and headbutt them away!

Gameplay:
In order to defeat a creature, you must press the key shown above it just as it approaches Sherman. If you wait too long or press the wrong button, the creature will slip past Sherman, and get into his cave. When 10 creatures are in Sherman's cave, the game will end. Game speed increases every time you defeat 50 creatures.

Controls:
Each creature is designated a single key.
Up Arrow Key: Jump Punch (Use on Flying Reindeer)
Down Arrow Key: Kick (Use on Small Penguin)
Left Arrow Key: Punch (Use on Large Penguin)
Right Arrow Key: Headbutt (Use on Snowman)
Spacebar: Pause the game

Credits:
Graphics, music, sound effects, programming, and design by TechnoSuperguy.

Absolutely great game Techno, love the sounds all together !

"Oh just hit start"


That made me laugh really hard !

9/10 - The reason you lost a point, well, my reaction time sucks, so you get the blame.

:D

Great game

Hey TechnoSuperguy! Awesome game! I must admit, It was better than I expected! The Graphics are smooth, I couldn't see any frame bluriness or time lack. My Highscore was 107! I wasn't bothered counting all the other scores. I got Too occupied in the gaming experience ... Also I liked all the voice acting, especially at the start! "Shermans Shnowy Show - Shermans Shnowy - Sher- Ah just start the game!" I luaghed at that!

Gameplay:

I don't know about you guys, but I thoroughly enjoyed that! Headbutting a Snowman, sky uppercutting wierd birds, punching penguins and kicking baby penguins. It was suprisingly addicting, although I don't know why. 8/10!

Engine:

Okay, lets get this all done. I was expecting some movement, but after ahwhile, I was glad that you couldn't run around XP. It was nice with the action commands, especially since you've implemented arrows on the enemies head to we now which arrow key to punch in. Sherman also moves smoothly into the air when hitting the up arrow key. 9/10!

Graphics:

They were quite nice. I didn't see much shading though. Maybe I didn't look hard enough. The PA on the title screen as far as I can see was awesome. The animations for Headbutting, punching, kicking and jumping were spectacularly made! Even without the shading, the Animations were still awesome! 8/10!

Bugs:

None as of seen! 10/10!

Total Score Rally:

35/40! A nicely-rounded game! Awesome work! Hopefully the Review was long enough =P.

It was a nice game, but it got a little repetitious after a while, and i think you should add combo's, and maybe other features too.
Nice game though, 7/10.

Thanks, edmunn. I made the game in only about three days so I didn't have enough time to add combos, but I did squeeze in one funny cheat: if you hold the right mouse button while left-clicking "Start Game" on the Title Screen, the game will run at twice its normal speed. :P

Sorry about that, DarkFlame. I had to use YoyoGames as my only host during the Winter Competition, but now that it's over, I've added a mirror for 64Digits. Here you go:

Thanks Edmunn. Yes, I'm working on two games right now; my main project is an RPG platformer about an old superhero character I made, but I haven't made much progress on it yet. My second project is a fully 3D Transformers G1 game, which is coming along quite smoothly. I should have a demo for it ready soon, so keep an eye out for it in the WIP forum! :)

Sorry about the error! As I recall, I never bothered to make the game Vista-compatible, so that is probably the cause for the error. I'll upload a compatible version of the game as soon as I get the chance, but in the meantime, perhaps you can use the official GM Vista Converter to get the game up and running?
