Snowball Is A Winter Pinball Game With A Twist

January 11, 2017 - Written By Kristijan Lucic

Many of you have probably heard of Noodlecake Studios Inc, a mobile game developing company. This company had released quite a few interesting games for Android thus far, and a number of their titles are extremely popular. If you’re into mobile gaming, chances are you’ve heard of Alto’s Adventure, Mmm Fingers, Happy Jump, Pull My Tongue, Punch Quest and Super Stickman Golf. These are only some examples of games that were released by this company, as they have too many of them to list here. Well, the company has released yet another game quite recently, and it seems like it was developed in collaboration with Pixeljam, a company behind ‘Dino Run’. The game in question is called ‘Snowball’, let’s see what it has to offer.

Snowball is an arcade game, and a quite compelling one actually. All in all, this is a pinball game of sorts, but not like regular pinball games you’re used to. Now, in this game, you’ll need to do the same thing you do in regular pinball games, but the playground is quite a bit bigger, and instead of a regular ball to hit, you’ll need to hit a number of snowballs. Now, you’ll be sending huge snow spheres through a kid-constructed bobsled maze, which consists out of railcars, igloos, tesla coils, etc. Because of all this, the game doesn’t really look like a pinball game, until you see the paddles using which you’ll be hitting snowballs. Maps in this game are quite big compared to regular pinball games, and that’s actually part of the fun here. The graphics in Snowball are, well, nice, this is definitely not the latest and greatest graphics, nor is this is a 3D game, but everything fits, and the gameplay doesn’t suffer because of it, quite on the contrary.

Do keep in mind that this is not a free game, as it costs $2, but it seems like those people who paid for it are more than happy with the game, as it currently holds a 4.6-star rating in the Google Play Store. This game was published quite recently, which is probably why it has only 12 reviews thus far, and it has been downloaded between 500 and 1,000 times up to this point.
