Do you want to kill a snowman?

by iMer - Compo Entry

(Knocking: Knock, knock, knock, knock, knock, knock)
Do you wanna kill a snowman?
Come on lets go to war
I never see you murdering anymore
Come out the door
It's like you've gone away-
We used to be best buddies
And now we're not
I wish you would tell me why!-
Do you wanna kill a snowman?
It doesn't have to be a snowman.

It could be a snow dick too.

Go away, Anna

Okay, bye...

Once upon the time, there was a tale about a kingdom far, far away. Behind mountains, a sea and a few other remarkable landmarks I cannot come up with.. I mean, recall at this moment.
The tale was about two sisters, princesses at that, who lived in a wonderful castle until..
Until the terrible accident happened.
From the moment their parents were killed by snowmen.. things were never the same.

!!! OUT NOW !!!

What else is to say?
It's a game about killing snowmen, it's short and yeaah. Thats about it.
I really would've liked to have added more projectiles, levels and more obstacles like breakable walls and such.
Did not have the time for that though.
The final screen is also a bit messy since that got finished in the last minute, buut it works! (i think)

The physics and graphics are nice. Beating levels seems strange, you have to use all shots to continue, also not a super unique idea, but still good!

@Zabuza: It's either kill off every snowman-part (hat, head and middle/bottom ball) or use up all your ammo to end a level

Short, but fun! Could possibly use some more levels and/or types of weapons? Also art/physics is amazing

Very fun game! The physics is very fun, and the pixel art is pretty good too. For the sound, you should use SFXR or something similar, since it's a very easy tool where you just select the type of sound, click "randomize," and boom! You have a sound effect!

Great fun. Audio would make it really really fun but it's still a solid game.

Addicting game! I've always dreamed of blowing up snowmen with canons. My childhood wish had now come true.

I got 940. Not sure if that's good or bad, but I'll try to beat my record.

Good game!

That was quite a fun game. Nothing like killing a bunch of snowmen.

Why would you want to kill a snowman? You monster.

I liked how you could continue even if you didn't kill everything. I did have trouble with the last level where the explosions along the bottom didn't kill the snowmen in the house and afterwards I had no way to hit them again.

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.
