Snowcraft: If you are currently snowed in and don't feel like going outside you can always have a virtual snowball fight. [warning: Flash fun]

It's a great link... I even posted it just this week to the Central Park snowball fight thread.

It's good enough to relink.

Now if I can just build out my tech tree so I get Hot Cocoa before they develop Mulled Cider...

Hm.

Too bad that game isn't multiplayer.

An all-out mefi free-for-all would be awesome...

If you hadn't re-posted, I would never have found it. So THANK YOU, anathema!

Die, little green snowscum...

Works for me in safari. If by works I mean the game loads, but I suck so much I can't get past the first level. Maybe you are right; I'll blame it on safari not working.

Works fine in Safari for me.

And when you get sick of Snowcraft you can check out their other services. Sheesh.

The resident child demonstrated a level by-pass: Instead of clicking "play again", type in a number.

Holy crap! Level nine is demoralizing.

This has to be posted every December, it's a Law Of Metafilter.

I only can find your front page post from three years ago.

[It's not Flash... it's Shockwave.]

Actually, it is. Shockwave and Flash are the same element, it's sort of the difference between a Compact Disc versus MiniDisc.

Originally known as Director (as a multimedia authoring tool), Shockwave was developed to translate Director to be used on the web. After some time it was improved for better performance and quicker download and became known straight ahead as Flash.

Their plug-in requirements all differed of course, but just as the Compact Disc and MiniDisc both reveal digital sound, they require different players to do so.

Shockwave is still used in rare cases, but in comparison to Flash, it's bulky, slow, and cumbersome for processors to deal with. Why spin the vinyl when you can load the disc.

Um...is there a level-bypass number for "Bonus Round"...?

(It's really time for bed, isn't it...)

I did it! I did it! I diiiiiid it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Did it! Wewp.

Holy moley! Three years I've been playing this damned thing, and I finally got through it! My eternal thanks to Feisty's resident child for the tip on the level bypass numbers.
posted by mkhall at 7:13 AM on December 7, 2003


Got through it too, but had to go through each level over and over (so there). Where do you type in the level number??

Friday Flash, Saturday Shockwave?

As an aside, thanks for the double post!

There are other hotkeys... looks like Z gives you unlimited lives...

This looks like the same version I played about 4 years ago. I think the best strategy is to immediately drag your guys down into the bottom left corner, and then pick off the opposing players one by one, starting at the bottom and working your way up. Worked pretty well back then.
