Nice game. Thanks for posting it. So what's the story about this game? Was this your idea?

Pretty simple concept, it's like the old elctronic game Simon

You repeat the moves of the characters and the sequences get longer and longer

So if the Snowman moves you push the stick down

The it might go Snowman, Reindeer so it's Down, Up

Then Snowman, Reindeer, Santa

Down, Up. Right

Etc.

Simon type games are well known but the inspiration to make a xmas style game of it came from a little flash game called Xmas Simon ([url="http://www.flashangel.de/xmassimon/"]http://www.flashangel.de/xmassimon/[/url])
I found it mid-November and because I thought it is a nice (and simple) idea I stared coding Santa Simon the same evening I found Xmas Simon.
Most of the code was done within two days and since I am not a great artist I looked around the Internet for some graphics I can use.
The graphics you can see in the game are based on free gif's I found while looking for some xmas gfx.
A big thanks to the unknown authors!
When I was sure that I could finish the game before Chrismas I asked Albert if he likes the idea to release a xmas type game for the 7800.
He agreed and gave me very helpful feedback about the work in progress.
I am very glad that he wanna make a cartridge out of it even if the timeline was very short and when I saw the bunch of stuff in the store for chrismas sale I thought he definitely have enough work with it even without Santa Simon.
Albert was also the one who managed that Atariboy made a great label for the game (I really love it).
In other words the Santa Simon Cart wouldn't be without him, thanks man.

Thanks for posting. Great digitized sound and cool AtariAge intro! Any instructions anywhere?

Unfortunately there isn’t but thankfully godzillajoe made a good summary of what it is about :)

WOW! Never played Simon? A friend had that and my folks got confused I think and got me Merlin. Anyone remember that? :lol: :lol:

I bet if you put a Merlin in front of me right now I'd still remember how to beat that game where you had to light up all 9 squares. It's like when I played Dodge'em after 15 years, I still remembered the patterns I used. Can't remember what I did yesterday but stupid stuff like Atari and Merlin, I'm all set. :D

Short timelines, great games...we've got a true programmer in our midst!
I'm going to give this one a go...long as it fits my RAM cart. If it doesn't, I'll play it when the actual cart comes in the mail.
