This looks awesome. All I say is it needs a d-pad control method like true NES.

Good Points!

Thanks.

I find the "virtual joystick" to have way more control unless the touch d-pad is frickin' huge! At least on the iphone anyways. iPad is another story.
I'll see what we can do though because I do agree you guys 100%.

The feedback here is always great!

I do love me some d-pad!!
I still have my original NES my grandparents bought me in '86 right in between the wii and ps3.... and it works!!! (on it's 3rd cartridge reader, but working none the less)

Quick update.

Looks like d-pad will make it in.

I'll post a new screen shot soon.

Is there any possibility for a name change? I really can't think of a better one myself, but Super 8-Bit Santa is a bit long.

Ok, now you're just being fussy :P
It's not like it's called
"Super Santa's Magical Quest: Sword of the North Pole"

I mean i can understand if someone just thought it outright sucked...
But length? Really? lol

We're not a huge corporation by any means and as you can see by the modified controls we take suggestions serious so.
If you (anyone) has something better....

We tossed around a few names.
"Old school Santa"
or just "8-bit Santa"
or even "16-bit Santa" since it has plenty from the 16bit era as well.
