Drunk Santa

Sober Santa. Too much politics today, not enough Christmas fun. Here's a drunk Santa game from b3ta. Pretty tough once you get going.

Go Stan! I just broke 300! This is just the thing we needed today. Politics? Humbug! Give me a drunken Santa and I'll make a comment with four exclamation points!

This is almost as good as a game sent me a few years back - the player is an elf trying to put toys together fast enough to avoid getting whipped to death by a manically grinning Santa.

Broke 1500, but I think I'll call it a day, I can't supress the urge to crush the arrow keys once Santa is really drunk, as if my keyboard was some pressure-sensitive device like when you jam a slow elevator button. I very nearly cracked the circuit board beneath the left arrow key. Ah well.

I got up to 680 and thought I was doing pretty damn good... I don't know how the rest of ya do it.

Sighhh just reminds me of every Christmas... ending up drunk on a roof somewhere.

'Tis the season. Very cool.

Thanks, Stan. Bring on the onslaught of child-dream-smashing games at the expense of tradition!

Everybody sing!

Christmas, Christmas
Every day is Christmas
When you drink the Santa Liqueur
Christmas, Christmas
Very Merry Christmas
Just grab a bottle and pour!

Sorry, couldn't resist, but I'll stop unless someone can beat my 2070.

BOO-YAH!

1570

And I almost got caught by my boss from the sound of me laughing, pounding the keyboard and cursing.

530!

I can't remember when I laughed so much at a game [on my own, just as well...]

Tremendous link!

Hasn't affected the fun ratio yet... but then I'm not swilling champagne by the caskful!

One of the later missions in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City has the player driving a compatriot (who is dying from having blown his own arm off -- for a sense of urgency) while drunk, through city streets. The simulation includes a view that's like a rolling gait (even though you're driving), blurriness of vision, and slow reaction time (about a half a second after you use the controller, the game reacts to your adjustments).
I couldn't help thinking of that mission while playing this game.

I loved that game, too!
