Elf Run

Press ‘1’ to start/reset the game and spacebar to jump.

Bloody hell it’s that time of year again isn’t it? That means it’s time for… another slightly dodgy Christmas give away!

For the unending crapfest that was 2020, I thought it would be nice to make you all a brand new Megadrive/Genesis game!

Based heavily on Andrej ‘Oh Sat’ Preradovic’s comprehensive and thoroughly comprehensible tutorial, Elf Run is an Endless Runner that sees a lone elf tasked with recovering some of the 21st century’s most popular gifts.

The game can be downloaded for free as a .bin file for use in an emulator or flash cart or played right here in the browser. For $1 you get the option of downloading the soundtrack (a fetching remix of ‘When Santa Got Stuck Up the Chimney’) along with my terribly hacked-together source code.
