Another maddeningly addictive coffee break arcade fun from Blackeye Software, Snowbrawl is a great game that pits you in a furious snowball fight in one- or two-player mode. You are Brian, a kid who nobody likes, facing off against all the other kids on one snowy day. To offset seemingly impossible odds, you can build things like snow catapults, snow blocks, snowmen, and more. As you progress through the game, your opponents increase in both number and speed.

As is the case with other games from Blackeye, Snowbrawl boasts excellent cartoon-style graphics, sound effects, and addictive gameplay. The game even includes some strategic elements: similar to The Horde, you have about eight seconds to build snow structures at the beginning of each level. When the action phase begins, you will be quickly overwhelmed with hordes of vicious enemies who throw meaner snowballs than their age may suggest. The action is fast, fun, and quite addictive. Blackeye has recently bundled the game with the two-player cooperative version, which adds more levels, a snowplow, a final boss, and a true ending.

Overall, Snowbrawl is excellent for whiling away those 10-15 minutes coffee breaks. Make no mistake, though, the game does get very challenging and involved in later levels. With an easy-to-learn interface, funny animations, and overall polish, Snowbrawl scores another hit for underrated developer Blackeye Software. Two thumbs up, way up!
