This is looking like a really great release :)

Does the manual fit the standard plastic O2/Vpac boxes?
Ne tirez pas sur le administrator!

Yes, in fact,  it does. I just tried it.

Each day,  I am going to the post office so all the good girls and all the good boys get their Odyssey2 / Videopac game in time for the Christmas holiday.  Take a look at the picture below. Here are 5 that I just assembled. Have you been a good boy? good girl? Santa is watching...  You better not shout, you better not cry, you better watch out, I'm telling you why... Santa Claus is coming to town... and he's delivering the new videogame MEAN SANTA... for the Odyssey2 / Videopac game system! if you are a good boy / girl, that is!

The Videogame Criric has reviewed MEAN SANTA:

Also he has reviewed the Atari 2600 version too:

I know a lot of people do not like his review style... but I do.
Interesting ...he gave both versions the same grade.    C-

Hello and Seasons Greetings to my fellow Videopac and Odyssey2 fans!

I am also making a post / update to this message.

Now that the 2021 Christmas season is upon us, it is always fun to play Christmas-themed games.

I would like to let you know that I am still offering MEAN SANTA! on cartridge. You can still own one of the 100 serial-numbered cartridges!

This game was programmed by Rafael Cardoso and he also designed and created the artwork for the box, manual, and cartridge label.

For a limited time, I am including a nice black plastic durable storage box with a color printed insert to place the game in for safe storage.

You can get more information and order on my web site:

thank you and Happy Holidays and here's to a Happy New Year 2022!

I have attached the demo ROM that Rafael created.



It only features 3 houses of the game and then it stops. The released game has 15 houses and 1 final house with the ROASTED TURKEY DINNER which is being be protected by 4 guard dogs.


Some notes:


- This is a timed game. Best time wins.


- Fly your sleigh through the night sky. Avoid the rogue snowflakes. Get hit and your sleigh will be bumped and 10 seconds get added to your time.


- Navigate your sleigh and carefully land onto a roof to enter a house.


- Steal , I mean collect, the presents in the house. Do not bump into the walls.

If you do, the lights will come on and you will have to be still for a few seconds... this adds more seconds to your time.


- Press the action button to make Mean Santa move faster while in the houses.



ENJOY!


Tim
