by Breakdance McFunkypants - Game Jam Entry

Snowboggan! is a 3d flash game. I've always wanted to write a toboggan simulator, where you can speed down a snowy hill on a sled, dodging trees and smashing into snowmen. This weekend's game jams finally gave me the chance. Check it out! I would love to read your comments and warmly encourage you to let me know what you think.

Use the arrow keys to go left and right, and try to take out as many snowmen as you can!

In this game, you are immortal. It was created for fun, and no matter what happens you can always climb back to the top of the hill and start again. There is a hint of danger, however: if you smash into a tree or hit the thin ice signs, you might get flipped over! If you do get flipped over, simply hit the [Click to restart] button on the top left.

The objective of the game is to "discover" gravity, prove that snowmen are not at all "immortal", and avoid the "thin ice" while gravity is constantly "drawing" you to the bottom of the hill. These words have quotes around them because those were the secret theme words for the game jams I participated in.

This game was programmed using FlashDevelop for a pure as3 project, compiled using Flex, and the engines are away3d for graphics, jiglib for physics and Flint for particle effects. All sounds were created by me using a microphone. The guitar and snow sounds were done with my hands and mouth, and the sliding snow sound was the microphone rubbing up against my winter jacket. It was an absolute blast to program and I learned a lot. Thanks for playing. Enjoy!
