Snowman is an entry I originally made in just one week for the "Homebrew platforming competition" two years ago.
Now I participate again for the "Alive and Kicking Coding Competition" with new enemies, new levels, improved engine and c4a support!
It is an 2D jump and run with 3D graphics totally rendered with the cpu.
In Snowman you are a snowman with the task to kill a given number of enemies per level to unlock the next level. If you collect snow you grow, but nearly every action you do let's you loose snow again like jumping (1 snow), shooting (2 snow) or getting hit by an enemy (3 snow). So you have to economize your snow.
Try to solve levels as fast as possible to get a better score in c4a!
Change for version 184.108.40.206: Fixed a little bug, that my crashed the whole game at level change. Maybe the bug CCF mentioned? However, thanks to Foxblock for his great reproducible bugreport!
Change for version 220.127.116.11: Higher timeout (15s instead of 10s) as people have problems commiting the c4a scores. I hope this helps.
Change for version 18.104.22.168: Cooler music change + no music break at loading c4a scores.
Change for version 22.214.171.124: Fixed an error in the map for hard mode. Furthermore add a "Try again" entry if the c4a submit fails.
Change for version 126.96.36.199: Fixed an error since version 188.8.131.52, which broke the hard mode.
Change for version 184.108.40.206: Fixed another sound bug. Snowman is now officially bug free. :P
Change for version 220.127.116.11: Downloading the two scores now parallel
Change for version 18.104.22.168: Hopefully last version with some little improvements like acceleration when moving, maximized falling speed and level reset via select,
Change for version 22.214.171.124: Fixed a bug, that you can't cancel exiting the game
Change for version 126.96.36.199: Let's use NEON they said... it will be fast they said...
Change for version 188.8.131.52: I can count to potato!
