Snowman Strategy

by wilpel1234 - Compo Entry

This is Snowman Strategy! this is a game where you have to protect the core (xmas tree) buy killing (throw snowballs at) the enemys. You can place towers and "shooters" that helps you kill the enemys.

How to: (I didnt have time to implement this in the game)

WASD to move
left click where you want to throw the snowballs
Use 1,2,3 buttons to choose a attack
Move your mouse all the way to the right to open the market

Known issues:
Some graphical bugs
If you use the 3rd attack it will make the game much harder <------------------ READ THIS

Hope you guys enjoy this game!
Post what you like and dislike :).

The game looks cool, but like the others said, your download link is private. You should make it public in your drive! ;)

Fun small game. I liked the progression with the turrets and enemy speeds. The magic didn't work for me for some reason. Also, when you place a turret on a surface where you can't put it, it does remove the money. Could have used some music for in the background.

Fun game indeed. Pretty tough. Really like the mana mechanics in addition to the building mechanics and think there's a lot of potential there. Upgrades felt a little ineffective. "Spells", too. Nice tower defense without the predetermined attack paths.

Like the game. I don't know what the enemies are, but they won't get the presents! :) tower range is a bit small at the beginning

Nice game. I'd like a more satisfyng sound when you defeat an enemy, but it's fine overall. Oh, and some music would have been great.

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.
