Friday Fun: Snow Crusher

It has probably been a long week whether you have already returned to work or are finishing up the last of your vacation time. If you are in need of some stress relief, then we have we the perfect game for you. This week you get to be totally fiendish and use a monster size snowball to destroy as many cars as possible at the local snow lodge.

Snow Crusher

The object of the game is simple…create as large of a monster snowball as you can and then send it down over the side of the mountain to destroy the cars at the snow lodge.

You can choose from three different sizes of monster snowballs to create. We chose the “Snowflake Size” for our reign of destruction.

Once you have chosen a monster snowball size, all that is left to do is select the control method that works best for you.

As soon as you select the control method, your monster snowball creation will automatically begin. Keep in mind that the faster your snowball goes the harder it can become to steer if you make sudden movements…

At the top you can watch your progress towards the drop-off point and the green boxes highlighted at the bottom indicate how large of an item (such as trees or boulders) your snowball can roll over and add to the total mass. Snowball speed is shown in the lower right corner. Time to roll!

As soon as the first green box is lit up you can start adding small trees to your snowball’s mass. You will want to avoid larger items as you go because they will penalize your score, slow you down, and reduce the size of your snowball!

Halfway to the drop-off point and our snowball is now able to grab up larger trees. If you have not hit any large items along the way, your snowball will definitely be moving along at a good rate by now.

When you reach the end of the mass building area, your snowball will pop out into the open and get ready to drop off over the side of the mountain.

Go snowball go!

Yes! Thirteen cars crushed and ready for the scrap yard… If the “Snowflake Size” snowball can do this, just think what the “Avalanche Size” can do with three minutes of time to build up mass! Have fun with those monster snowballs!

    It wants me to install a plug-in.

    @Jim – This particular game needs Adobe Shockwave in order to work, so I imagine that is what it is wanting you to install on your system.
