Snow Bros Trivia
The Sound Track Music was composed by Osamu Ohta.
The entire PCB is only about 8 x 6 inches in size, the smallest ever made!
Snow Bros was licensed to Manchester's Ocean Software for conversion to both the Atari ST and the Commodore Amiga home computers but Ocean decided that the game wouldn't perform well at retail and the game was cancelled. It's not known how far into production Snow Bros was before cancellation, although several work-in-progress screenshots were published in the games magazines of the time.
This game was released only as conversion kit. So any generic machine could be converted into a Snow Bros machine.
Snow Bros marquee
In the Snow Bros marquee you can see both Nick and Tom in the foreground wearing blue and red respectively. In the background two monster chase them, one anonymous and one of the two bosses from floor 40, that is, one of the tougher.
This title is JAMMA compatible.
A bootleg of this game is known as "The Winter Bobble".
Pony Canyon / Scitron released a limited-edition soundtrack album for this game (Out Zone, Snow Bros. - PCCB-00044) on 21/10/1990.
Snow Bros actually is the first part of a trilogy:
- Snow Bros - Nick & Tom (1990)
- Snow Bros 2 - With New Elves (1994)
- Snow Brothers 3 - Magical Adventure (2002)
Sometimes slowdowns occur in the last floor (50). It happens even in the original arcade machine (not emulated).
After you complete the 50 floors, any remaining extra lives disappear. There is not a score conversion.
Snow Bros was due for release on the Amiga back in mid-1991, but was for some reason abandoned. The game was rediscovered and released for free by Amiga Games That Weren't in 2006.
