It would seem that both the web and source links link to the source code. Might want to rectify that quickly!

I love the art style. I enjoyed the music a bit less, even though it brought back memories from the old days :)

The gameplay was a bit repetitive but I ended up playing a full game through. Nice entry.

Simple, reminds me of the good old dos and basic games. The goal is to clear the snow, but then what?

A bit too easy. Maybe I just didn't play long enough, but you seem to have way too much time to clear out the snow. I REALLY like the art style though. Reminds me of some of the Christmas picture books from my childhood.

Cool art bro!

Very smooth and relaxing :) You can port it to mobiles. Looks like perfect fit for one finger controls :)

I really like graphics and mechanics are simple and clear. But it's too repetitive, it would have been way better if the 3 others seasons had been already added.

Nice art, music was kind of droning. Might be cool to have varying snowfall (heavy then light etc.) to keep the player on their toes and cause panic when it shifts. You could have gusts of wind etc. too when things ramp up.

Visually this has a nice, retro-style with matching sound effects. It would have been nice if it branched off into surrealism as the game progressed.

My wife did a "Mum plays..." of this game: http://youtu.be/TGKTenX_oxU

Well executed and very hypnotic, that's enough for me :D Thumbs up !

Whack-A-Mole style game but easy enough for a 1 year old to play or some one who is mentally handicapped could play this game. Nice effort.

Love the art style, well suited to harken back to those days of early Windows and DOS based games. Kudos!

A bit too easy but it looks nice :)

I think the game starts off too easy and doesn't ramp up in difficulty fast enough to keep my attention.

It was alright but could be better

Dec 8, 2014 @ 9:06pm

I love the retro vibe! Gameplay was a bit too simple, but it was relaxing and enjoyable.

With just a bit more depth, this would do really well on mobile.

The snow on the surrounding buildings threw me at first, but it was fine after that. You might want to look into ways to have the difficulty scale up over time, other than making more snow faster.

A little faster next time. xD

Loved the graphics. The gameplay can get repetitive very fast.

Music was a bit low so I couldn't really hear it that well without turning the volume way up. Still, nice and simple, and nice pixel art! Nice job!

I enjoyed the soothing nature. It would be cool if there was some soothing music as well.

It would be good on something like IOS and the art was stunning. A little more depth such as an increase in difficulty would go a long way.

Simple gameplay, but nice looking game.

Pretty cool. Would make a great screensaver. :) Gameplay-wise, well, it seems really easy and not too engaging, but it's still very nice and moody.

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 (http://mysite.com/mygame.zip) 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.
