Net Yaroze Month: Snowball Fight

In Net Yaroze Month, we are playing every Net Yaroze game featured on the UK Official Playstation Magazine, and ranking them all in the order we liked them. You may have other opinions as to the ranking, which is awesome.

To learn more about Net Yaroze, read our introductory article here.

Snowball Fight is best described as a cross between Combat on the Atari 2600 and what a top-down, real-time version of Worms would be like, but with Penguins instead of Worms.

So, there are two Penguins. A red one called Percy and a black one called Paddy. The seems to really hate each other, so what better way to deal with this issue than a SNOWBALL FIGHT TO THE DEATH.

You collect snow using the X button. The more you collect, the bigger your snowball and the more damage you will cause when you fire it at your opponent. Fire the snowball using the Square button, and choose your angle using the L1 and R1 buttons.

Hit your penguin-nemesis into the water to also drain their life-force.

It’s good fun, but the music is annoyingly repetitive.
