Default Fun snowball fight game (WT1999, but still as fun as always) - link and video inside

OK, this is one of the few Flash games I've actually kept since I first saw it in 1999: http://fatsammy.dreamhosters.com/OT_stuff/snowcraft.exe (fyi: 2MB .exe download; I already virus checked it). It's utterly addictive.

Also, as an added bonus, here's a grainy video I shot with my digicam of me beating the hardest level in 49 seconds. You'll first see it as level 5, where they all come at you at once and form a nice little killing line. After that, it and the other difficult bonus rounds will keep repeating.

Once you learn the trick to beating the game, you should be able to play indefinitely. Enjoy.

You'll make it, cutie, not to worry. You're at least as OCDtastic as I am.

You're no longer my hero.

Click and drag the men to move them. Click and hold them to shoot (vary click and hold length for shorter or longer throws).

That's about it. The green dudes need three hits to go down; you, alas, only need two to go down.

EDIT: oh and Doug, when you get to be a rockstar like me you should only need one man per level to beat it.

I figured that out.....but thought I was missing something since I was only using one man while the others got pegged off.

Ahh, and there's the secret. So how do you keep the other two as backups without getting them killed?

The secret to keeping your extras alive is to put them in the lower left corner of the screen and attack using one at a time.

I love this game it is truely addictive!!!! I often wake at night and can hear the little kids laughing at me as I die. . . .

It won't let me run the program. I get a warning box that says that it needs at least 3MB of Virtual Memory to run. I have plenty

Beats the hell out of me, guys; sorry to hear that. It's a four year old flash game that's worked just fine for me across three different pc's and two OS's. Odd. (EDIT: make that three different OS's...98, 2000 and XP.)

Well, you can always live vicariously through me by watching the video.

I've got Win 2k and 1 Gig memory...maybe that's just a bad combination.

Well it's that time of year... This game always puts me in the mood for the holidays.

For those of us with not enough memory (ie too much) to play the version saved to our computers, here's a link to play in your browser.

I was curious to see when I first played this game. I actually saved the email with the *.exe file. It was sent to me on 11/24/1999.

I can't believe I first played this game 9 years ago.
