    Two snowmen, Nick and Tom, battle cute Japanese critters over 50 platform based screens.

When a screen is cleared of monsters you move on to the next level.

    Shoot snow at monsters to turn them into snowballs. Press the fire button next to a snowball to kick it around the screen. Any monsters hit by a snowball are killed. If another snowball is hit, it too bounces around the screen. Collect potions for power ups.

      Was a big fan of this as a kid, one of the best bubble bobble rip offs imo, actually adding to the game play with snowballing and bosses.

          I just finished building my name cab with this game in mind. My all time fav. Last I checked I had the second bottom score on TG but it wasn't submitted.

          I'll try it again

            I was just playing this a few weeks ago so I'm already in the groove, I've never cracked the million though yet...

              Fun game. I got hooked on Snow Bros back when I worked at Timezone in the 90's. Got to the point where I could finish it most times and get between 1.8M and 2.1M.

              The TG score was from a MAME decathlon in 2007. Honestly I don't think I've played the game since then. Need to remember a few things. Can't see another 2.5M score from me just at the moment.

              Cheers

              Rob

                And after hearing this, a huge sigh of relief is heard to come from the MGL crowd

                Didn't think my 42K score was going to cut the mustard


                This is about the 2nd last game I ever saw at the local fish&chip shop (arcade game in a public place that wasn't an arcade) from memory. Was probably about $1 or 3 for $2 game - too rich for my blood considering how quickly I die playing it.

                    Had two quick games. Not too bad considering I haven't played this for five years but there's a lot I don't remember.

                    Made it to floor 35. Trust me the floor 40 bosses and the last 10 screens can be a real pain in the arse.

                    Cheers

                      Love this game, my board has started to have graphical faults though

                      wait, am I even allowed to enter with a PCB score ?

                          Wow! A lot of scores for the first night of a game, this game must have made some decent cash BITD.

                          Some massive scores already - how about Rob or dave_wellington setting up a live stream at some stage and schooling in how to play this one

                          Interesting to hear that this game has an end point which Rob has made and he is 2Mil off the pace. Must be some stages where you can really cash in on this one.

                            Yeah each level you can cash in massively if you know how to do it.

                              The game ends at floor 50. The MARP high is over 6 million and no I haven't watched it and don't plan on doing so. My 2.5M is up on MARP as well under RJM. There's no huge bonus for completing the game but as DisQo said if you play each floor the right way there's big points to be had. I just can't remember what I used to know. Some of it's still lurking in the old grey matter though. Just hope the rest comes back to me.

                              Cheers
