Lumiappaday #127: Snowball Assault demoed on the Nokia Lumia 800

| March 21, 2012 | Reply

In Snowball assault, you are a Walrus trying to kill and defend against some penguins. Well, I say kill, just hit them with snowballs which some how causes them to disappear.

Use touch controls to aim the snowball as well as adjust power. In that way you could liken it to angry birds. However, the penguins also attack YOU. You have to bring up your shield to prevent being hit. Sometimes even a single hit can rebound back to you so keep an eye out. You can’t just hold up the shield forever as it is timed. You also may not have an unlimited snow ball supply so watch out how to hit the penguins. Oh, you don’t necessarily have to have a direct hit, the snow balls can even roll and just touch them.

There are many levels, I think mostly user generated, and you can create your own.
