When it comes to gaming on any portable electronic device, my preferences are a bit odd and I find it rather difficult to find games that meet what I am looking for. I would much rather a game that I could pick up and put down at any point in time without having to worry about hitting a save point, or being in the middle of a mission that I won't finish anytime soon. SnowBomber for the BlackBerry PlayBook allows me to do just this, and while the concept is very simple, and you could wonder just how much fun can be had throwing snowballs at snowmen -- the answer is a lot.
Once you launch the game you are presented with a pretty simple landing page, you can start the game play, view high scores or jump into the story mode. From here you can also toggle the sounds and you have the option to share with Twitter and Facebook as well. After jumping into the game play you have your controls on the left hand side to pause the game or to duck behind the wall, in the center is the sling to shoot the snowballs at the opponents, and on the right hand side is a table which builds up with various extras and perks to help beat the snowmen.
The snowmen pop up from the ground and the idea is to throw your snowball at them and knock them down, but the tricky part is they also throw them back at you. Luckily you can slice their snowballs and gain a few points for doing so, but be careful because careless swipes will also knock out your own snowballs. There are a few different size snowmen, each of them requiring a different amount of snowballs to knock them out, and as they grow bigger they also throw more snowballs at you each time.
Whether you have a few minutes or a few hours to pass by you won't want to miss out on trying this free game. Hit the link below for some additional information and to download SnowBomber for your PlayBook.
