Snow Bros Gameplay
Snow Bros is similar to Bubble Bobble. The game is one or two players, with each player taking the part of one of two snow brothers, Nick and Tom. Each player can throw snow at the enemies. The player must throw snow at each enemy until it is completely covered and then turns into a snowball. An enemy partially covered in snow cannot move again until it shakes it all off.
Once an enemy has been turned into a snowball, the player can roll it. The snowball will rebound off of walls until eventually shattering. Any enemies the snowball rolls into are eliminated and other stationary snowballs start rolling when the rolling snowball makes contact with them. If the player manages to take out all of the enemies with kicking one snowball, bonus money will fall from the sky above. Every tenth level there is an enemy boss.
If the player takes too much time to complete a level an evil pumpkin head will come and try to kill the player. It is invincible but can be stunned and sent to appear somewhere else in the level with snowballs or snow shots. After a short time, the evil pumpkin will spawn ghosts that can travel freely through the level and seek the player character. These ghosts can't be killed or stunned, so the player's only hope is to avoid them while killing the rest of the enemies to move on to the next screen.
When a player bowls an enemy over, it may drop a potion bottle. The color of the potion lets the player know what special power-up he or she will get:
Red increases walking speed.
Blue increases the amount of snow thrown.
Yellow increases the distance that snow can be thrown.
Green causes your character to inflate like a balloon while having the ability to fly around the screen and knock out enemies for a limited period.
The effects of the red, blue, and yellow potion wear off after the player dies. Also, both the Blue and Yellow Potions increase the power of the snow thrown from either Nick or Tom.
