If you enjoyed those delightful video game times in those late 90’s then you surely must have come across this game. A rage it was and one of the most popular 2 player games during the time.
Nostalgia can be a tricky thing. Sometimes you’ll find something from long ago that gives you all kinds of warm and fuzzy feelings, while other times you’ll kick yourself for buying that Transformers animated movie because your 10-year-old brain told you it was awesome.
In Snow Bros you play as one of the Snow Bros, although since there’s no multi-player, there’s really just a single Snow Bro. The Snow Bros are snowmen in overalls who must fight to get their princess back. Each of the game’s 50 levels is a single screen full of platforms on which the Bro has to fight against waves of different types of enemy creatures.
You can now customize the controls in a variety of ways; the size, position and opacity of all of the buttons can all be changed to how you like them. The controls also seem to be much more responsive. You can also now lock the screen orientation so you don’t have to keep changing it every time you start up the game.
You fight the monsters by throwing snow at them, thus turning them into giant snowballs, and then kicking the snowball down to the bottom of the stage, knocking out any other monsters who might get in the way. You keep doing this until you’ve defeated all the monsters in the level, and at the end of every 10 levels there’s a boss monster you must kill before you can move on to the next world. Once you’ve finished the game, you can play through it again in hard mode, which might be fun or boring as you have to see the same levels again.
Defeated enemies drop power-ups, the most important ones being- a red bottle enabling you to run fast, a yellow bottle enabling you to throw larger chunks of snow and green bottle enabling you to throw snow to a farther distance. Getting these power ups makes the gameplay quite interesting and more fun to play as you can more effectively kill the bad guys.
The buttons for jumping and attacking are provided in the bottom with an on-screen D-Pad beside it. There are currently 50 stages to the game and 20 different monsters block your way. Don’t take too much time or another monster enters and bothers you a lot.
Anyone who was familiar with the older gaming systems would pick it right up. But for others it might seem as a game of the past not adrenaline pumping enough as compared to the new generation heavy weights of gaming.
