What it is

pacSanta is a kid-safe game a little like Pac-Man.

The goal is to find as many presents and get them to the exit tree before the various kids find them.

To do this, you need to solve the simple maze, and be able to hold down an arrow key.

Techie Details

This application is about 700 lines of Tcl/Tk code using the snack library for sound effects and background music.
There are about 200 lines of Tcl/Tk in a maze generating library, and 1300 in the HTML rendering code used for the introducion screen. (I don't use most of that library for this it's actually pretty small.)

The application is packed with StarPack.
