Wonderfully full of action and adventure, @ohhcurtains !

The first snowball shooter I've ever seen and boy is it written great ! Gold star all the way.

So good! I don't usually like fast-paced action games but it is really enjoyable and the AI works very well 👌
@ohhcurtains I remember you posting in the discord the first progress and it seemed to me just a few days ago, you really finished it quickly and the final product doesn't look rushed at all.

Amazingly put together, and really fun to play!
Wrote about it in more detail in my latest PicoShorts #6 I hope you don't mind!

Loving the absolute chaos that can ensue during the fights!

This is amazing! Great gameplay and a 🔥 soundtrack as usual! Thanks so much for sharing!

Oh wow, yeah, this game was great, and the AI teammate was super satisfying!

Managed to get a perfect run ending with ultraviolence, +snowball speed, and bigger snowballs.
Absolutely amazing game!

I love this!
Little problem though, got it after losing the 3rd and 4th fights.

edit: Got the exact same thing again later, but with a different scenario leading up.

Ohps, running into a few more bugs (sorry!)
The counter for rounds doesn't seem to be working properly, I play twice and the season ends, saying that I got 2:3 wins:losses.
Or, I play the first match, and going into the next one (the striped screen) it says match 4/5 up top.

Oh goodness - thanks for finding these. I'll get around to fixing them soon.

Sorry to clutter the comments, but I had another problem. Sometimes, my teammate's ai would be broken (they just sat where they started), and they wouldn't move until they got KO-ed, and I helped them up.

I think that if the bugs are cleared, this cart can get featured!

P#125540 2023-02-08 19:05

You're kind and helpful for taking the time to point out these bugs - thank you!

Super cool game! My guy did an amazing job at making snowball fighting into an 8-bit game!

After playing this for so long, idea: ENDLESS MODE. Enemies get progressively harder, and the game stops when you lose, with a max of 10 upgrades.
