This will be the last Snow Flakes game to be made with batari basic. You could think of this as a trilogy coming to an end or something. While it may not be as big of a jump as 2017 to 2018. There are five new additions that really make this one stand out. 1. Proper Night Transition (The playfield and sprites kept the same brightness, no matter how far you got. Also Phase 4 no longer has an ugly gray/grey background.) 2. Faster Speed for Joystick Players (Phases 4 and 5 became impossible for Joystick players, since there was no way to reach the other side of the screen in time. Now simply hold "down" on the joystick, and you'll go twice as fast.) 3. Sound Effects (There's no way James would let me get away with that three times in a row.) 4. Custom Settings (Change the color of your Sled with the Select Switch, and choose whether you want the Igloo present during gameplay with the Reset Switch.) 5. New Challenge Mode (Replacing the broken two snowflake difficulty mode, now your catching snowflakes, while also avoiding... falling ice sheets?) If you've never played a Snow Flakes game before, it's pretty similar too paddle games like Kaboom. In fact, even though this version has improved Joystick play, I stick highly recommend trying this out with a paddle. Here's a list of how to play: Fire Button to Start Color Switch to Change Controls (Color = Joystick and B/W = Paddle) Left Difficulty Switch to change the size of your Sled Right Difficulty Switch will add dangerous Ice Sheets to Avoid 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... Also Ice Sheets will give you points when they hit the snowy ground below. 3 changes for the updated version: Sound frequency slightly increases with each catch. New Sound for successfully dodging an Ice Sheet Fixed the timing issue where both objects would have the same height, now they are perfectly spaced out. While it won't shock your mind or anything like that, this simple game even surprised me when I discovered how much fun it was too play. Thanks for at least checking it out, and have a great New Years! Snow_Flakes_2019.bas.bin Snow_Flakes_2019_old.bas.bin
