Sega Mega Drive / Genesis game, 1990
Snow Brothers is a platform arcade game that quickly became a fan favorite for its engaging gameplay and charming presentation. Originally developed by Toaplan and later adapted for the MegaDrive/Genesis, Snow Brothers draws inspiration from the classic arcade style of the era and is often compared to titles like Bubble Bobble due to its similar gameplay mechanics.
The game's storyline revolves around a classic rescue mission where the brothers must save two princesses from an evil villain. To accomplish this, they navigate through a series of levels, each filled with various enemies and obstacles. The gameplay in Snow Brothers is straightforward yet addictive. The primary mechanism involves throwing snow at enemies to turn them into snowballs. Once an enemy is encased in a snowball, the player can roll it to collide with other enemies, which is a primary method for clearing the levels. This snowball mechanic adds a fun and unique twist to the traditional platformer formula.
Each level is a single screen with platforms and enemies. The goal is to clear all the enemies before advancing to the next stage. As players progress through the game, the levels become increasingly challenging, introducing more complex layouts and tougher enemies. Players can collect various power-ups that enhance their abilities, such as increasing the range or speed of the snow thrown, granting invulnerability, or providing extra points. These power-ups add an extra layer of strategy and excitement to the gameplay.
Upon its release, Snow Brothers was praised for its engaging and addictive gameplay, charming graphics, and overall fun factor. It was particularly lauded for being a great cooperative game, as it offered a two-player mode where friends could team up as Nick and Tom to take on the levels together.
