A Puzzling Present

A Puzzling Present


Santa's stuck in a pile of magical presents! Can you learn how to use his special powers and help him escape in time for Christmas?

A Puzzling Present is a fun and friendly platforming game designed for players of all ages. Play through thirty puzzling levels, running and jumping through the snow to get Santa safely to the exit. Each world gives Santa a new special power to use - from turning gravity upside down, to jumping super high!

30 LEVELS TO PLAY!
Guide Santa through three worlds, each with their own special power, and unlock new levels as you go. Run, jump and watch out for that holly!

Bored? Stuck? You can quickly skip levels or unlock everything from the options menu!

HELP WITH SCIENTIFIC RESEARCH!
This game was partly designed by ANGELINA, an artificial intelligence research project from Imperial College, London. If you'd like to help us make ANGELINA better at designing games, you can rate levels as you play them and send feedback to us!

If the surveys are annoying you, though, you can easily switch them off - just check the options screen from the main menu.

MORE SURPRISES ON THEIR WAY!
We're sure you've all been good this year, so we're planning for some special new content to be released for free around Christmas time.

Version 1.1
+ Fixed a bug where the special power (B) button stopped working.
+ Added an on-screen indicator of the special power status (thanks to Mike Treanor)
+ Tweaked some input to make it friendly (thanks to Alan Hazelden)
+ Made some adjustments that will reduce crashes and improve performance.

I'm working really hard on improving the gamepad, and fixing those nasty crashes. Thanks for your patience and comments!

The future of game development While the game itself isn't hugely compelling due to a lack of story or real flow, Puzzling Present is still a fun and playable title that illustrates how AI and Indies can work together to make creative games.

Interesting concept I heard it was designed by an AI so of course had to try. However its not challenging or complex, and some of the levels start you in a position where you die instantly. Hope to see more from ANGELINA though.

Short and not that great, but fun for what it is It will take you all of about 10 minutes to play thru this whole game, but I thought it was 10 minutes well spent since it contributes to experimental game development. It's sort of fun, but it doesn't compare to "real" games.
