Default El Grincho vs The Snowman (Universal) +25 promo codes

Hello. I am Rob from we have released the last originally designed game of the year by us. "El Grincho vs The Snowman".

Copying some elements from our previous classic emulations (like Astro Wars, Galaxy Invader and Frogger), this is more in the style of the old "Game & Watch" games from the 80's but brightened up with festive colours. People are liking the simplicity of this game. It is nice and simple. It has Game Center Scores so i look forward to seeing how well you do. The last game we made "Invaders From The Dead" was well received so hopefully you will enjoy this too. A Christmas gift awaits 25 lucky people. Promo codes follow after you read this:
Here are the details.

For all retro game lovers here is another new game in the style of the old classic handheld and tabletop games of the 80s. From the same developer that brought you back Astro Wars, Galaxy Invader and more is El Grincho vs The Snowman, a very simple and addictive new game to pass the time away between opening presents or eating turkey and Christmas pudding. Retro style LED graphics and original retro style synthesizer sound effects.

El Grincho doesn't like Christmas and he doesn't want anyone else to enjoy it either. He has gone on a rampage and stolen all the presents. It is the night before Christmas and you must catch and save as many presents as you can. Use the chimneys to return the presents back to the sleigh. Be careful though! The sleigh has been left on autopilot but it is not working very well so try not to miss the sleigh. That is not all you need to look out for - El Grincho has booby-trapped some presents with bombs. Avoid these or they will explode and melt you away to digital heaven and you only have three lives.
You can carry and return up to 5 presents at once but be careful not to lose these from a booby-trapped present or miss the sleigh. Be warned its harder than you might think! A great Christmas app!
In the style of the classic Nintendo game and watches of the 80s and other classic tabletop/handheld games by Tomy, Grandstand, Coleco, Entex to name but a few.

To play move power to "ON"
Use Snowman's hands to move The Snowman lefty and right to catch the presents or dodge the bombs
Place presents on either of the chimneys that is under the sleigh and let the heat float the presents back.
If a bomb hits you you melt away to digital heaven and lose a life.
It is game over when you lose all your snowman lives

Supports Game Center to save your high scores and challenge your friends.

Took the first code. Really did not expect it to work. It's a beauty. Proper old skool Grandstand gaming. Move the snowman left and right to catch the good presents and avoid the bad, sending the good ones to the chimney where the sleigh is over. Downloaded on my iPhone but if this works with iCade it'll be promoted tonight for me and my kids to play. Great, niche stuff. Has Game Center too.

I'll give this a go

I took

Nice LCD style game, I've got a feeling this is going to be one of those that are better on a smaller screen as most of the LCD games are, at least that's the way I feel because I'm used to them being small screens and not a huge iPad screen.
