Friday Fun: Snow Storm

Whether you are enjoying an extended weekend or are stuck at work, we have a new game for you to help make your Friday more fun. This week a fresh snow storm has hit and your job is to clear up the parking lots assigned to you.

Snow Storm

The object of the game is to remove and pile the snow from a preset percentage of each parking lot as you work your way through the set assigned to you. The further along in the game you get, the more you will need to think and plan out the clearing process.

The instructions for playing are simple. Use the arrow buttons to move the snow plow around and monitor your progress on each parking lot using the meter in the upper right corner.

Here is the first level. In the upper left corner you will see the level number and the percentage of the parking lot that you need to clear. You can monitor the progress towards your goal in the upper right corner and start the level over if desired/needed by clicking on the question mark button.

Note: A one space wide strip will remain along the fence regardless of attempts to clear those areas (based on our experiences while playing the game).

Working, working, working. Once you reach or exceed your goal for a particular parking lot a coffee cup icon will appear in the upper right corner. Break time!! You can choose to clear as much of the parking lot as possible or move onto the next parking lot by clicking on the coffee cup icon.

Looking good with 80% of the first parking lot clear!

Once you move to the second parking lot you will notice a new percentage score appear in the upper left corner. This is a cumulative percentage score for all of the successfully cleared parking lots prior to the one you are working on. Doing that extra bit of work each time will definitely improve your overall total score. You will also start to encounter new extra items such as these safety cones…they will act as a block towards moving snow into those spaces.

Goal reached, but why not boost that score some more?

You can still make efficient use of the areas containing safety cones…just work on piling snow up high on each end of them. There may also be times when you have to leave piles of snow in parts of the parking lot.

Note: You can combine small snow piles on the sidewalk into larger ones to make room for more snow.
