Build A Snowman
I have to admit, the original idea was all based around the fact that the ‘uni-code snowman’ may have won, but the theme still allowed me to build this.
I have compiled it in Windows (Windows 8.1) and have put a .exe and a .zip in the links.(Use mouse for grabbing)
I also compiled it out into an .apk and if you know how to get this to an android phone, this is great, if you don’t, I’m not explaining, Google is your friend, but you might want to think.. “should I be doing that”… there are no funky permissions on it when you install it. (Use your finger to grab falling parts, yeah, I know, I’m sorry, it’s difficult on a small screen, but it was initially build for windows only, the Android and HTML were just an after thought)
I also compiled into HTML5 and I’ve tested it on the following browsers. * Please note, original was indended for Windows users, HTML5 and Android are for users who don’t use Windows, so there are a few more bugs.
SeaMonkey 2.31 – Works if you actually click on the ‘Hit S to Start’ with your mouse
Firefox 34.0 – I couldn’t get it to work (it may be my configuration, try your FF)
Palemoon Version: 25.1.0 (x64) – Works
Wyzo v184.108.40.206 – Doesn’t work
Internet Explorer V11.0.9600.17416 – Works
Google Chrome Version 39.0.2171.71 m – Works
Opera Version 26.0.1656.32 – Doesn’t work
and Yeah, I do have that many browsers on my system.
Please try you version of any browser you have, it may be my configuration and that is why it doesn’t work for me on some of them.
There is a tune in the game, but it’s turned off by default, to give people the choice of listening or not.
Basic rules of the game.
There are 8 boxes at the bottom of the screen, and falling from the left and right you have parts of a snowman, two snowballs, hat, coal and a carrot. The idea being you catch it, and drag it down to the box, as you do, a piece appears in the box, get all the pieces the snowman starts to dance, click it, you’ll get points.
You don’t have to literally drag the next piece needed to build it, just click and drag anyone (would have been too hard the other way)
You’ll see a Furnace Fahrenheit value, temperature and snow/ice don’t mix, keep this value low by dumping a caught snowball in the chute to the right. Keeping it low means you’ll get a bigger score when you click on the snowman.
Should this temperature reach 30F it’s game over.
Hope you like it, feedback would be appreciated (I know there are a few little bugs, but I didn’t have the time to fully iron them out, the game itself is playable, and I hope you like the background, it’s actually my backgarden).
