Snow Bros. (whose full title would be Snow Brothers) is a platform arcade video game developed by Toaplan in 1990 and distributed in the same year for NES da Romstar for the North American market.
The protagonists of the game are Nick and Tom, two cute little men able to trap enemies inside deadly snowballs. Snow Bros. remembers a lot Bubble Bobble, world famous arcade videogame from which the title is inspired. Nick and Tom aim to reunite with their respective girlfriends, held hostage by two stone heads capable of spitting bubbles.
The levels are in total 50 (exactly half that in Bubble Bobble, where instead they are 100), divided into 5 stages of 10 levels each. At the end, each stage sees the presence of a boss, some of which are particularly difficult to defeat. Snow Bros. is not exactly an easy game, so we leave you some tips that could make the task easier. Good fun!
