Looks nice... I was tempted to grab a code but lately I've been too lazy to keep switching accounts :/ Great artwork though.

Thanks MidianGTX - I know what you mean about the codes. I really wish they'd allow them for every store.

But I really appreciate your comment on the art

To everyone that's tried this so far, thank you!

Unfortunately, there seems to be an occasional bug if Santa doesn't clear the jump between the first and second house that causes the game to stick with just the houses scrolling by. It took a while to track it down, but I have and an update has been submitted. I've asked for priority review, but with the time of year, it may be a while for the update to come out.

The temporary fix, for people who have noticed the crash, is to safely make the jump Once that first jump has been made, subsequent games in that difficulty mode will be fine.

As an apology for the inconvenience, here are some more promo codes It would be great if I could get some more feedback on what you like, don't like or would like to see in an update.

I noticed the bug, it happened a few times while I was playing and I had to exit and restart the game.

Anyway I wrote some impressions...

Not a bad game, simplistic, pickup and play gamers who like online leaderboards should check this one out. Santa's sleigh broke down so he has to find another way to deliver the presents...by running and jumping from rooftop to rooftop. Your character(Santa) automatically runs and you tap the jump button to hop from rooftop to rooftop, each rooftop requires you to drop off either a lump of coal or a present. There is a coal button and a present button located on the bottom corner of the screen(as you reach each rooftop Santa will show you either a picture of coal or a present to tell you which one to leave) If you accidentally leave the wrong gift/item it will be counted as a mistake. You're only allowed 3 mistakes and then the game will end. Also, if you fall from a rooftop or from not jumping right the game will end. Scoring is based on how quickly you can drop off a gift once you reach each rooftop and how many total rooftops you can successfully deliver to. Leaderboards are done through Openfeint. Not a lot of depth to the game as expected for this type of game, there are 3 difficulty settings to choose from but just one mode of gameplay. The higher difficulty levels increase the movement speed making you react quicker.* Rooftop Run is an addicting game with the leaderboards and its priced fairly. Recommended to pickup and play fans or for anyone looking for another Christmas themed game.
