Controls & How to Play
The game is played with an 8-way joystick, a Shot & Kick button, and a Jump button.
The Jump button can be used to climb the terrain.
Also, if you move the joystick downward while pressing the Jump button, you can descend as well.
The characters' shots feature two different types: a trapping attack, and an inhaling attack.
The trapping attack traps enemies in a ball, which you can then kick to attack other enemies.
You can also ride on top of the ball and jump off of it.
The inhaling attack inhales enemies and then spits them out to attack other enemies.
You clear stages by defeating all of the enemies in the stage.
You will lose a life if you are hit by an enemy attack, collide with an enemy, or are trapped by certain obstacles in the stage's terrain.
When you restart after losing a life, all of your power-ups will be reset.
The game is over if you lose all of your lives.
There are a total of six worlds, and the game ends when you clear all of them.
You can select from four different characters.

The number of main characters was increased to four, and they definitely feel cuter and more comical than before, but it also seemed that the cool yet hot setting changed somehow... However, the gameplay remained exhilarating despite its simplicity, meaning that the title still felt like Snow Brothers! The characters and storyline are also excellent additions to the Snow Bros 2 lore. This was the final arcade game made by Toaplan, but not too many people were able to play the title due to its limited release. It'd be nice to see it again in some form, even if on a different platform!
