== SDL2 Santa ==
SDL2 Santa is a small game that was built as part of the SDL2 tutorial series from Parallel Realities.
For more information see the tutorial series at: https://www.parallelrealities.co.uk/tutorials
In the game, you play as Santa Claus on Christmas Eve, as he attempts to deliver gifts and coal to children on the Naughty and Nice list.
Things have gone slightly wrong this year, as all of Santa's reindeer have caught a stomach bug, so are laid up in bed. Santa therefore needs to cover the night all by himself. Unfortunately, he has departed the North Pole before his sleigh was fully stocked, and so he's low on gifts and coal. Thankfully, the elves have offered to use their magic to teleport gift and coal sacks to him, to help him out. Unfortunately, their magic has gone slightly wrong, and has also enchanted a bunch of nearby snowmen, who are now intent on ruining the night for everyone!
Score as many points as you can, to get on the highscore table!
== How to play ==
WASD - steer Santa's sleigh
J - Drop a gift
L - Drop a piece of coal
Guide Santa's sleigh over chimneys and drop gifts and coal down them to score points. Gifts must be dropped down chimneys of houses with all the lights off. Coal should be dropped down chimneys of houses with the upstairs light on (the children are naughty, and haven't gone to bed). 100 points are earned for the first collect delivery. Every subsequent correct drop adds an additional 25 points. Dropping the wrong object down a chimney results in 100 points being lost.
Failing to deliver a gift to a house on the Nice List will result in the loss of Xmas Spirit. The game ends if the player runs out of Xmas Spirit.
Gifts and drop are limited. Current supply levels can be seen on the HUD at the top of the screen. More gifts and coal can be collected as magical sacks that appear in the air. Red sacks contain gifts. Black sacks contain coal.
Avoid crashing into houses, snowballs thrown by enchanted snowmen, snowmen heads, and carrots! A single hit will result in a game over.
