A Good Snowman (Is Hard To Build) is puzzle game about being a monster and making snowmen. On each level you must roll your snowballs to be the right size and then position them on each other to make a snowman.

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 named (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.
