Description Single player battle game against increasing numbers of school yard buddies in this winter season. (Please forgive the photos... I dont have homebrew / other for creating good screen captures. The graphics are nicer than the blur from my phone.) Grab a hot cocoa thermos when you find one to replenish some warmth... Download the project and load & run the "SNOW" file. Instructions Move (left/right) with D-pad Pack snowball by pulling down on D-pad... repeat for larger snowball Change direction with [Y] button Normal throw [A] Lob [X] Hold down either [A] or [X] to charge power of your throw. Pick up a thermos of hot cocoa when you can to restore your "warmth" A few notes on the "physics" in the game: - larger snowballs will cause more "cold damage" to your opponents... but they also will not have as much velocity relative to your power charge - when you throw a ball - it will account for your player's x-velocity at the time of release... so running towards your opponent will give you more speed on the throw. Conversely, back-pedaling will leave you often with an anemic throw - as you dig in the same location -the elevation will decrease. You and your opponents can use this to an advantage to get behind a snow-wall for protection (be careful of the LOBs) - there is no Angry-Birds-like angle control (in order to keep the game play simple.) Rather a lob releases at a high angle and a regular throw releases at a low angle. Adjust your snowball size, distance to opponent, and power of throw to get a better result. Thanks for playing Notes Game offers simple terraforming in the snow with creative snowball packing.

Great work cujo! cujo1992 cujo1992 Thanks ChaseCZ! The game IS deceptively difficult. One of my play testers insisted on adding the cocoa to give a fighting chance to stay in the game!

I love The Legend Of Zelda! Express Yourself You mean like there will be a small chance for a cocoa to spawn and you'll get an extra life if you collect it? Sure, why not! cujo1992 cujo1992 Exactly. At first there was no cocoa to be found. And when cocoa poured from the sky life was a happier place.

Programming Strength First Year My account is over 1 year old Website Yeah but i love how they despawn so fast and I've been wondering, is it possible for enemys to get the cocoa? cujo1992 cujo1992 I decided to not have enemies drink the cocoa. They must be lactose intolerant! Seriously my goal was to give just enough help to the player alone and see how balanced the game felt. In general the enemies could/should be much smarter but I ran out of time to tweak the AI. Pass the cocoa please....

Shelly Shelly Here's a "better" photo of the title screen, if you want it: cujo1992 cujo1992 Hey - thanks for the assist PetNet! How do you do screen captures? Shelly Shelly I use the built in screenshot feature with Luma. The only downside is that it causes distortion in some scenes, which is why I can only take screenshots of certain things. If you want I can take more, and if thy turn out good I can post them in the comment section. Autz64 Autz64 Touhou Project Is Awesome! I love Touhou Project!

I like that detail when the enemies ran away when defeated. Also, yes: Cocoa Volcano temperature. cujo1992 cujo1992 Ah! Very clear... Thanks! Indeed you deserve Volcano hot cocoa. -24 Fahrenheit this morning. Shelly Shelly I haven't downloaded it yet, but is it 3d? Raycaster? cujo1992 cujo1992 Hi Petnet. The game is 2D... So as to avoid any compatibility issues with the Old 3DS. Now if I can just figure out how to tag the submittal for the contest. Shelly Shelly Oh yeah, I figured that out after I downloaded it.
