DescriptionSingle 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.InstructionsMove (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]
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 NotesGame offers simple terraforming in the snow with creative snowball packing.
