Retro Gaming Advent Calendar – 14th December

December 14th. Psycho Santa ? Amiga 

This is another Amiga cover disk game, this time from Amiga One magazine. It really was a golden time for free Christmas related games. In this game you start by trying to throw presents in the house whilst dodging all sorts of weird enemies whilst even throwing snowballs at the ghost of Christmas past, if you succeed you are given a bonus level of trying to grab presents off a tree whilst bouncing on a pogo stick (What was the designer smoking??)
This sequence just repeats and gets harder, ranked high as I love the pogo stick!

    This one is mostly interesting to me because it's from the coder who won his job at Bullfrog through entering an Amiga Power design a game compo. Mike Diskett went on to work on Syndicate and Theme Park.

    Didn't really learn anything, was already a bit more advanced. Didn't stay in touch no, but now I know some ex-bullfrog guys.
