Default Santa's Slippery Slope (physics based skiing game)

Hey guys, i'm 19 years old, self taught, and this is my second entirely self developed game! Dropping on Dec 20th. Let me know what you think

App Store Description:

**Universal App**

Twas the night before Christmas Eve and Santa was testing his new sleigh! One wrong move sent presents flying, what an awful day! Help Santa find all the presents and save Christmas before it's too late!

Join Santa in this exciting physics-based journey on the slopes to get back all of the lost presents in the quickest time possible!

Features:

Realistic physics give you precise control over skiing Santa.

Awesome ragdoll bails!

Intuitive controls allow anyone to pick up and play, but require dedication to master!

30 exciting and unique levels, with challenging hills, jumps, and physics based obstacles!

Every 5th level is a special high jump or long jump challenge!

Turn off the audio or music separately to play in silence or rock out to your own tunes!

Adjustable controls for left or right handed players.

More levels coming soon!

Geez a 15 year old with save goop and then you !!! hehe just kidding. I'm amazed and inspired that someone so young can make some awesome games

Do you have a dev blog? I'm very interested on how you made your game, what challenges you faced, etc.

Goodluck with the game !

Unfortunately i dont have a dev blog, i keep thinking about setting one up, but im not sure the amount of people who would read it would make it worth the time taken away from working on my games. So i never got around to it haha. Thanks for the comment!

Yes, there was a thread maybe a week or so back with his save goop. I understand about not having the time to make a blog as you're focused on your game ^_^

If you don't mind can I send you a pm then (not right now but maybe in the future questions regarding game development.).

I added a direct link to the youtube video in the original post, the embedded video seams to be broken currently (probably still processing on youtube). Sorry about that.

I'm not entirely sure actually, I hope it's after the 20th. However if it is before then I can bump up the relase date, shouldn't be a problem

EDIT: fixed the embedded youtube link. Accidentally put the entire url rather than just the video id, my bad.

Looks good I love the sound effects and the dopey looking Santa. I would've like to see it named "Drunk Santa's Slippery Slope" cause he looks wasted.
