A Good Snowman Is Hard To Build Review
Posted: 8 weeks ago, last updated 7 weeks ago.
Author: Andy Robertson.
You need to use considerable forward thinking and logic to build each snowman as the snow changes the size of the snowballs. It's a challenge of special reasoning and movement. Once you finish your snowman, it is names (and turns out to sometimes be a snowwoman). As you progress through the game things get steadily harder and you explore a snowy garden.
Once you finish the game there are bonus levels that take place in your dreams, once you exit the garden after all the puzzles are finished.
