Love it, concept, execution, graphics, you name it. Keep those games coming.

You went for a misspelled title with local characters I see:D I was thinking to call mine "Spæismånster", which is a horrible misspelling in any language, but forgot to generate æ and in my font texture, was lazy, and went for the rather boring Speismonster.

A fun puzzle game with a novel idea! I did get super stuck on level 4 though...

Nice puzzle game! Switching between levels and the level reset could be a little bit faster though. Credits came suprisingly soon, would have liked some more (and harder) levels!

To be honest, I completely loved this game. The graphics weren't great but the animation was pretty cool. I really liked the music; it had a certain charm to it. I liked how you implemented the snowman joke in there with the snowman icons around the edge. It followed the theme and did it nicely. I found it pretty innovative. Overall, it's a great game!

Graphics are cool! It seems made for another theme tho.

Dec 9, 2014 @ 7:57pm

Really liked the game!
Some of the later levels are a bit tricky, but I did manage to finish them all. I would have really enjoyed more levels too :).
Overall a very fun game with solid game mechanics.

+1 for the snowman, which is the real theme of this LD :D

Innovative idea, inteligent gameplay and overall great game!

Snowmääään! Hauska peli.

This was great entry. I like how you used the floor for the theme and the graphics and sounds were really nicely done. The puzzles were also really creative. Nice work. Only thing that comes to my mind is that maybe the transitions, retrying, etc could have gone little faster.

Wow nice job! Great puzzle game. I found the transitions to be somewhat annoyingly slow, and the fact that the snow ball starts moving.

I like how the levels transitioned to keep everything on the same screen. The puzzles, music and voice was good also.

The only thing I didn't like was the fact that the snowglobe starts off rolling. I died a couple times because I thought that the level was still being set up and didn't realize that I was supposed to be playing. Small complaint on a great product.

Nice one, I loved the voices :D I literally burst out laughing at the "congratulations, you've created another snowman" part XD I gave up before the end, 'cause I'm tired, but I'll look back tomorrow :P

Great puzzle game! Well-designed puzzles, interesting mechanics, and just the right level of difficulty. I love the robot voice.

I really enjoyed the game. The sound and music made it for me, the graphics I have no problem with and found to be nice.

The puzzles are quite challenging, of course I want more of them.

Those were some really hard puzzles. I loved it! It would help if the change in snow globe size were more clear. Additionally, I felt like figuring out how to get through wire grates was rather based off of luck or memorization.

That voiceover though. Really good concept and well designed puzzles (I still can't solve level 4 XD).

Dec 19, 2014 @ 6:07am

Wow! This is a deceptively difficult little puzzle game, lol! :D I really enjoyed this. The only thing I actually had issue with was trying to initially figure out what all the tiles did. You had a really great start to a tutorial going on at the beginning, but I felt it was unfinished. I really wish that it extended to being told what different tiles did, and what they were. I figured out most of them due to trial and error, though I did feel frustrated not being told how they functioned and ending up dying multiple times, as they are fairly simple graphics and don't give a really straightforward idea as to what each tile does. :(

Other than that, this was really solid! I liked the gameplay, and the music was good, too! I loved the robotic snowman voice, and I really enjoyed making tiny snowmen! :D

I like this game. It's a nice puzzler. The audio is great. I thought at first I would be annoyed with the robot voice, but it never got on my nerves. It keeps the mood in check. I couldn't finish the game, but that's just me being bad at it.

gana0 says ...

Everything about this game was excellent. It did a good job of teaching me what the different tiles did by forcing me to use them to solve the puzzle. Good level design, and good concept. The music and sound was excellent. I really liked the background music; it was very pleasant and didn't get on my nerves. The credits music was awesome. I wanna make a snoooowmaaaaaan ♫

Dec 28, 2014 @ 7:21pm

Cute graphics, love the concept, well done. I Included it in part 21 of my Ludum Dare 31 compilation video series, if you would like to check it out :) http://youtu.be/onSxxkN9CmE
