The Snowball Effect Releases On iOS And Android

Good friend of the site Aaron McLeod let me know that he's released a new game on iOS and Android, The Snowball Effect. The free-to-play game has players moving a snowball downhill, while completing objectives. This copy of the game is also version 2, and had music done by Jake Butineau.

The objective of the game is to get as far as you can, completing challenges to unlock new abilities. As you collect coins, you can also buy items to increase your chances of survival. The game is out for both iOS & Android at the free tier. It contains in app purchases of a cosmetic nature.
Snowball Effect v2 update is a complete overhaul of the existing game. To address a number of design issues I started revitilizing the overall feel of the game. Instead of being very level & objective based game, Snowball Effect is now an infinite runner, with the feel of old racing games from the NES era. You need to move to dodge obstacles, and to collide into objects that give you resources.

Depending on your mobile of choice, you can download the iOS version here, or the Android version here.
