Snowman Escape

by vladimirdlc - Jam Entry

Snowman is trapped in an snowy prison. Santa left him a gift, is it him teasing Snowman, or is the gift of freedom? He must solve these puzzles by himself, using his icy fist (Mouse) while he is trying to escape from the prison

Puzzle Platformer. Mouse & Arrow Keys (or W,A,S,D)

You got it working :) Nice concept. Graphics and sound are ok. One thing I would change is the accuracy of the rope throwing. I click to get it one place, and it goes a bit off of where I clicked. But great fun game and I figured out how to play with out reading, which is a bonus for me. And yes I managed to escape :)

One glitch to do with jQuery, so I coudn't play the web version of the game. Didn't bother with other versions.

Cool puzzle platformer, I freed the snowman, muahahahaah! The grapple is a lot of fun, the trail effect on the player is a nice touch. Good game :D

Cute graphics and nice music. Rope controls are a little random, but I managed to get this poor snowman out of his jail, so it's good. ;)

I wanted this to be lemmings but with snowmen and a grappling snowman - that would have been awesome. Still good game guys, well done!

The snowman is free now :D. Interesting controllers, I don't like that kind of gravity so much but it's a matter of taste I think. Well done!

TEAMS: Teams entering the Jam should pick a single representative to submit your game, or create a team specific account you can share. We currently do not support Team Voting, but sharing an account and together playing and rating games is acceptable.

NOT LOGGED IN?: If you get a message about not being logged in, even though you are, it’s because your web browser cached the non-logged in page. You can fix this by either refreshing your cache or clearing your cache. CTRL+F5 in many browsers. Chrome is a bit more work. Press F12 to enable Developer Mode, then you can right click on the refresh button and select “Empty Cache and Hard Reload”. This option is unavailable if you are not in Developer Mode.

PORTS: Ports to other platforms can be done after the deadline. That said, the sooner you finish your port, the sooner people can play your game, improving your chances of placing in the final results. For best results, provide a Web version of your game, or a Windows version with no dependencies. Also be sure to rate about 20 games to improve your visibility.

MY GAME DOESN’T SHOW UP: If you can’t find your game, it’s usually because the URL to your downloads are missing ‘http://‘. Fix your URLs ( and you will show up. Alternatively, if you just posted it, wait a minute. The cache may not have refreshed yet.

MY GAME CRASHES, IS UNBEATABLE, OR I MADE A TYPO: We allow you to fix crash or win condition bugs after the deadline (in a sense, like “porting” to support more players). We also allow “typo” bugs. I.e. A true that should have been a false, a word that should have been a different word, very tiny changes that you would have caught if you had more sleep. We leave this open to interpretation, but generally speaking your game should be identical to the game you submitted. No new features, just things you messed up last minute. Typos.
