In videogames, there are many levels that are icy – I won’t name them because there are so many – and one recurring character is the Snowman. If you are looking for some gaming holiday cheer, here are my top 3 Snowmen in games!
In Mario 64, there are a number of Snowmen, as they appear in different varieties – there are jumping Snowmen, Snowmen that attack you with snowballs, a giant friendly Snowman whom you must rebuild for a star and finally, a giant Snowman that tries to blow Mario’s cap off his head. Major points go to Mario 64 for having just so many!
In the winter seasons, you can roll up snow into balls to make Snowmen – although some accuracy is required, as making them slightly misshapen usually ends up in an unhappy snowman. Once built, the snowman is more than happy to talk to you, even to give you a title for making them so splendidly!
The clear winner by a mile for Christmas in games. In the level Freezeezy Peak, there are presents that need delivering, a tree that needs decorating, and what I must be the BIGGEST snowman in games, as he is the centre-piece of the entire level – adorned with a red and yellow striped scarf, broom, top hat and pipe, he is also the best dressed.
Do you have a favourite snowman in games that I haven’t listed? Maybe just a Christmas moment that you think deserves a mention? Let me know, comment below!
