Mission in Snowdriftland:
Indie Games Edition
Mark your calendars and set your bookmarks, Mission in Snowdriftland is back to entertain us once again with its joy-inducing classic-style platforming gameplay set against the backdrop of a cheerful holiday advent calendar. Beginning today and continuing right up through Christmas Eve, a new level will be unlocked to play each day as we march closer to that most joyous of holidays filled with presents, friends and family gatherings.
The levels themselves have not changed, but that's not really a bad thing as they will all present quite a challenge for you to earn that bonus present waiting at the end. Use the [arrow] keys for control, avoid enemies or bounce on them, and collect all the snowflakes. You've gotta catch'em all. The game is well-designed with high production values, and the experience is well worth reliving again (and again).
You might remember us covering Mission in Snowdriftland way back in 2006. Back then, Nintendo had commissioned extra toxic, a German game development company, to create this amazing and joyful experience as a means to showcase unlockable goodies from familiar Nintendo games. But then the contract ended and it was taken down and disappeared from the Web only to resurface just in time for the holidays once more!
This time the company, under the label of tons of bits, has teamed up with a dozen different indie game studios to showcase unlockables from each of their respective titles. Complete each level to find a new surprise bonus waiting for you from these great indie games. It's a great way to share the talent offspring of so many wonderful indie developers, and we thank Tons of Bits for bringing back this great advent calendar platformer and sharing it with the world once again!
