The prince saves the princess from the hands of evil. We have all heard this before so many times. So lets hear it one more time but this this time make everything in the form of twins. Meet the gang of Snow Bros game, an action packed game with snow throwing and bubble popping mayhem. Released back in 1993, this game drew massive attention towards itself especially among the other games with similar graphics and circus sounding music that were released with it.
Meet the Gang of Personified Coolness
Snow bros deals with the story of two princes, Nick and Tom of Whiteland who are these stereotypical awesome protagonists of the game. Their arch nemesis is King Scorch, who wants to take over the world. So one day, he decides to go to the top of the Crystal mountains and using all the magical powers that he has, he summons the winter winds which transform the Princes into snowmen.
Now without the princes there to protect it, Kind Scorch takes over their kingdom and traps the two snowmen in a freezer. Now Scorch, with his new found powers goes on to the neighboring kingdom and kidnaps the twin sisters Princesses Tina and Teri.
When the two princes hear about this, they are filled with rage and decide to set out on a quest to rescue these princes. Help them deal with icky monsters and goblins and other fantasy creatures that are the minions of King Scorch himself and battle your way to the dungeons where the Princesses are trapped.
The Very Exciting Gameplay
The Snow Bros game has a very unique and clutter free playing screen. The different levels are called floors so one need not ask “what level are you at” and this is something interesting that sets this game apart. The controls are simple. Two dedicated keys to throw small snowballs and one more key to jump. The objective is to clear the floor of small monsters and move on to the next floor. One can keep throwing snowballs on a particular monster to make it into a giant ball which can be used like to bowling ball to pin the other monsters into oblivion.
The best part is that one can change the difficulty and make the game as difficult as one likes but with the disadvantage of only one life in the game. But there is the added advantage of it being a two player game. Also, if one does not clear a floor on time, a weird pumpkin head ghost follows you around till you speed up and clear out the monsters sooner.
Graphics, Sound and Playability
The graphics are like any other 8 bit arcade video game and the sounds is something like a mix between a circus show and electronic trance music but is soothing on the ear. It is not something that will get stuck in ones head. With 8 difficulty levels to choose from, this game cannot get any better to play again and again.
