Christmas Town Live Wallpaper

See More Apps

Just a Quaint little Christmas Village.

When we decided to do this live wallpaper, we wanted something visually interesting that really felt like Christmas.  For us, that meant decorated houses and trees, getting the day off of school because of snow, snowmen, and of course Santa.

From a technical standpoint, it gave us a chance to polish the frame animation engine we've been writing, and experiment with parallax backgrounds, which has the different layers move at different speeds like Mario.

We hope you like it, and Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to everyone.
