Sorry, unlike last year I was unable to finish this game on Christmas Eve, however I decided to use Snow Flakes to celebrate New Years Instead.
For Fans of the Original Snow Flakes (2017)  you'll be happy to know this version of the game is vastly superior in every way.
  1. The background isn't as empty and includes an Igloo
  2. The Paddle from before is now replaced with a Sled
  3. The Paddle controller is now supported (and recommended)
  4. Up to Two snow flakes at a time
  5. 5 Phases with each one becoming more difficult
  6. From Day to Night. The sky becomes darker the more phases you conquer
  7. Highscore is Saved

Here's how to Play:

  • Fire Button to Start
  • Reset to go back to Menu
  • Color Switch to Change Controls (Color = Joystick and B/W = Paddle)
  • Left Difficulty Switch to change the size of your Sled
  • Right Difficulty Switch to change how many flakes appear at a time
  • Pro Tip: Phases change depending on time, not how many snow flakes you catch. 1st Phase is 30 seconds, and then the next one increases by another 30 seconds, so Phase 2 is 60 seconds, and the 3rd is 90 etc...

Hope you enjoy, and of course have a great New Year  :-D







Edit: I tried to upload this before 2019, however I was in such a rush I forgot to add the .bin file  :P

Won't you add a little feature that the ground rises a line after every flake and makes the game really harder? :D

@Karl G: Never thought of it like that. Wow  :-o


@MemberAtarian There's always next year, and plenty to improve. However it's time for me to work on serious projects now  ;)
