An Icy Night In Snowman's Land

by Jacic - Compo Entry

Help the snowman escape from the frozen lake in this puzzle game!

Use the arrow keys or WASD to move, and press R to restart if you get stuck.

I used Haxe and HaxePunk to make this.

I'm a sucker for slide-mazes so I'm happy to see someone doing one, but your mazes need work. If I don't do things correct at the start I can't fix it and I need to start over. You should have a way to assist the player in getting back to the starting point or someplace along the trajectory they need to go.

I couldn't get past level 4 (the one with lots of holes but only one snowball) — it looked impossible, so I wondered if I missed a mechanic (like picking up snowballs).

I really liked the music.

This is one of my favourites so far. The background music didn't get old trying to figure out the puzzles.

Great little puzzle game. I liked how you introduced new concepts gradually. Well Done!

Thank you all for the feedback! I'm glad you're enjoying the game. :)

In response to rjhunter, there's no need to pick up snowballs; that level is possible.

This is cool! HA.. get it...

Seriously though, I like it, simple, but puzzles are well made. Reminds me of Ice caves in pokemon.

Managed to complete all the levels. This was very fun to play and the puzzles were well designed.

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.
