Snow Bros. (USA) NES

Snow Bros. (スノーブラザーズ Sunō Burazāzu?) is a 1990 platform arcade game released in 1990 by Toaplan.

 

The gameplay of Snow Bros. is similar to Bubble Bobble, released in 1986. The game supports up to two players, with each player taking the part of one of two snowmen, Nick and Tom. Each player can throw snow at the enemies. The player must throw snow at each enemy until it is completely covered, when it turns into a snowball. An enemy partially covered in snow cannot move until it shakes it off.  Once an enemy has been turned into a snowball, the player can roll it. The snowball will rebound off walls, until eventually shattering against a wall. Any enemies the snowball rolls into are eliminated and other stationary snowballs start rolling when the rolling snowball touches them. If the player manages to take out all of the enemies with kicking one snowball (this one snowball may be used to make others bounce around as well and increase the chances to pull this trick off), bonus money will fall from the sky.  Every tenth level there is a boss. Each boss can sustain being hit a number of times. In Sega Mega Drive port, after the 50th level, you play as one of the snow castle princesses.  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 acquire:

 

Snowing the enemy is a Real Ball!

Wheeee! Get ready for an avalanche of action! The madcap Snow Brothers are slippin’, slidin’ and slingin’ snowballs, turning a mountain of ice foes into ice pops!

Evil King Scorch has kidnapped the shimmering Frost Princesses, and is about to take over Snow Land. He’s trapped the Snow Brothers, Nick and Tom, in an ice-house full of freezing baddies. The two cool crusaders sling a slug of snow at their captors to chill them out. But to escape, they’ve got to ice the Abominable Snow Boss!
