For our final game of 2023, we are playing Santa’s Little Helper. In this game, players take control of an elf who is putting together toys for Santa. Using the arrow keys, the elf moves through the workshop picking up the necessary parts for the toy using the spacebar before placing them in the present box ready for shipping.
For our Guided Hack, we added our very own Naughty Code Zone Elf to make the game a bit trickier. With some randomisation code paired with some movement scripts, our Hackers were able to create a naughty elf which would come and steal the present box when the good elves weren’t looking - so be careful with those gifts!
There’s still time to join in with the Christmas Game Jam on your dashboard and our mentors are on hand up until the eve of the 22nd to help you out with any of your code and ideas. With that, have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
