This is a game inspired by the original 'Frosty The Snowman' game, distributed with Your Commodore magazine in 1990. The original was only credited to Rick & Steve (possibly Steve Barrett?) so the original concept is theirs.

Frosty the Snowman 2 is a split screen race/platform game for two players. The aim is to run to the right, through the screens which increase in difficulty as you go, until you get to the finishing line. It's a very tricky game to beat without cheating. You have to jump over ditches and avoid various festive themed enemies. It's good fun, but it's very frustrating: two or three of the screens will have you tearing your hair out! There are a couple of Christmas themed tunes to whistle along to as you guide your insane little snowmen through the screens. The graphics are very basic and the animation is poor with dodgy sprite detection, but I can't complain too much about this though as it's a free game...

YAY! Father Christmas :)

The End.

HOW WAS IT COMPLETED?: I played it through while saving my progress screen by screen on an emulator.

SO WHAT HAPPENS?: If you can stand playing long enough to reach the finish line you are treated to an end sequence. The snowman shouts 'Woo hoo!' and turns to wave at you as he stands on the finish line. A short victory tune plays before it kicks into 'We wish you a merry Christmas'. The final sequence shows the snowman whizz across the screen on a sleigh with a large message below him and snow falling in the background. The message reads: "THE SNOWMEN HAVE MADE IT TO SANTA'S SLEIGH AND CAN DELIVER THE PRESENTS TO ALL THE GOOD BOYS AND GIRL AROUND THE WORLD. MEANWHILE, SANTA WILL DRINK ANOTHER PINT OF NEAT SCOTCH AND TAKE A HEADER THROUGH THE GLASS COFFEE TABLE. MERRY CHRISTMAS!"


  • Neil: Some animation, jolly music, a nice message and some good humour. That's pretty good for free! My compliments to the programmers!

  • Vinny: Okay - so it's not a fantastic ending, but I have slowly started to realise that it's all about the amount of effort that is put into producing a 'good' ending. This game ending is flooding with effort and so it deserves a high mark. I'm with Neil on this one: 6/10 from me too!

  • Andy Vaisey: Any ending involving alcohol (and a *pint* of scotch?!?!) is fine by me!

  • Andrew Fisher: That's a fun little ending, and it was nice to see the "sequel"

  • Gaz Spencer: The ending made me chuckle - Santa defo needs to sort out his drinking habit!

  • Brendan Phoenix: Not too bad at all - a waving snowman - come on - what more do you want!

FINAL SAY: Pretty good! Nice ending to a humorous, free game.

G.E. RATING: 6 / 10
