  • Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.

"Awesome."

A Spin-Off game to Daniel Remar's Garden Gnome Carnage. You play as Princess Pitch, a side character from GGC, who is very fond of explosions and bears a big grudge against Mecha Santa. Supported by your trusty ally, Catstrike, and your mother, the Goddess of Explosions, you blast into Santa's factory and Shoot Everything That Moves (mainly robotic Christmas Elves, turrets and combat-suitable toys) with explosive bricks, rainbow beams and ice rays, intending to confront Mecha Santa himself in the end.

In terms of gameplay and design, it's a cute, tongue-in-cheek remake of the obscure, rather dark DOS arena shooter Operation Carnage. You have a limited amount of lives, explore Santa's base room by room and defeat hordes of enemies Zerg Rushing you. The game is rather short (only containing four normal stages) and you cannot save, but it has a high replay value due to multiple Difficulty Levels, many paths to take and tons of secrets. It's fast-paced, has smooth controls, and focuses on dodging and destroying enemies about equally.

The free Windows version of Hyper Princess Pitch was released on December 1st, 2011. Which you can download here and you can check out the excellent game trailer here.


This game provides examples of the following tropes:

  • Mooks: Standard robot elves.
  • Mythology Gag:
    • The key combo for Counter/Piledriver is identical to that of Expel in Hero Core.
    • There's a secret level filled with incarnations of Spacenörd, the protagonist of an old game by Daniel Remar.
    • Pitch's father, the Bear Miner, is the protagonist of a No More Sweden game by Daniel Remar, which was also a Spiritual Sequel to Garden Gnome Carnage.
    • When catching a jumping enemy from the air to smash them into the ground, Pitch says "Not a chance." in a way very similar to Ansaksie from Iji.
      • The first picture in the ending is identical to the first picture of the ending in Iji, only with Pitch instead of Iji and Mecha Santa instead of Tor.
    • One Stage 3 Mini Boss uses the fire pattern of The Eliminator from Hero Core.
  • Ninja Pirate Zombie Robot: Robotic christmas elves and a legless airstrike cat.
  • No Fair Cheating
  • No Indoor Voice

 Goddess of Explosions: THIS IS MY INDOOR VOICE!

 Goddess of Explosions: Welcome, princess! I am THE GODDESS OF EXPLOSIONS!

Princess Pitch: I know, mom. Sheesh.

  • World of Ham: Mecha Santa and the goddess of explosions kind of out-ham Pitch, but she has her moments, so yes, this applies.
  • Zerg Rush: As this is a Garden Gnome Carnage Spin-Off, this way to be expected. It becomes ridiculous in the bonus level.
