It's a platformer. The only unique thing really is that the snowman can throw his head at enemies to stun them or to collect things scattered through the level (which is something he did in the movie too).

I got a code for a free download of the game through a contest. Quite obvious it was a kids game, but hey - free! I was actually pleasantly surprised - a lot of levels, and everything felt very polished. Environments were very vivid.

I do think this would have been better as a $1.99 app for a smartphone. It actually sort of feels like they copied it directly from a phone.

How is this any different than the Video Chat in Pokémon Black and White...? This is less...interactive.

Seems completely idiotic to remove the online feature... I'll miss conversing with my Japanese friends from Animal Crossing through it... =(

BTW - Gotta love the moderating of the comments. GG TBD.

@SCAR392 The guy who made Gunman Clive got a start with Wii Homebrew before making Gunman Clive. Colors! 3D was originally Colors! for DS homebrew. Just most amature developers dont have money to get an official devkit and publish their game through the eShop.

@Dyl_73 They can be used in a bad way (pirating, which is illegal and to me, immoral), or in a way that isn't pirating (homebrew, video watching, etc). Going after the sellers is more like going after a blank CD/DVD/SD Card creator for what people were using the products for.

While it was a pretty lame flashcard, the Max Media Player/Games 'n' Music card by Datel (maker of Action Replay) made one that only supported homebrew. I wish there was a 3ds compatible flashcard like that - then it wouldn't be possible to use it for DS/3DS retail games.
