This is an absolutely perfect implementation of the theme! I never thought about a platformer where touching the floor is something you don't want to do, but it was fascinating to play. I'd really love to see this concept expanded upon a little, and see some levels where you actually do need to be larger for some reason, and perhaps a way to lose some snow to go along with that. It could make for a very interesting puzzle game!

I love it.  The sound design is lovely, the gameplay is unique and fun, and it fits the theme perfectly and thematically.

Thank you!

The theme implementation is perfect! And the music fits just right! That level with the two icicles though lmao

The music is by Purple Planet. Also about that level, the key is to jump into the ceiling space between the two icicles. Thanks for the feedback!

I could always get to the jump up part and would come within an inch or two of making it to the top but could never quite make it haha but your game is great! Keep it up!

I really like the idea and enjoyed the simplicity of it, rather challenging. Implemented the theme really well. Great job!

Thanks!

Yeah it's beatable; I beat it on both desktop and WebGL to make sure. If you're struggling with a level, just make sure you're in the air whenever possible (even in the space between two icicles) to minimize the snowball's rolling (and therefore growing) time. Also please pardon the crappy Unity physics, it can barely handle a circle.

the physics are a bit bothersome but the idea is irresistably charming. i've never been this attached to a snowball.
