Gift Catcher is a single button game for the Atari LYNX handheld console.

Can you help Santa catch all the gifts without touching snowflakes?

The game is played in vertical mode, using only the A/B buttons. At first, Santa will move on top of the screen. Press the button, and he'll dive down to catch a gift. Now you can press and hold the button again to make him climb back up to the top of the screen. Catch all the gifts, but avoid touching the moving snowflakes!

If are looking for a challenge, my current highscore is 24 points!

How to play

Download the game ROM files in .LNX (emulator) and .LYX (flashcart) formats. The fully commented source code is also provided as a separate download if you want to make new games for the Atari LYNX too!
