The two kinds of snowballs from Snow Tale
|Attack:||Ramming into the player (red snowballs) or throwing projectiles (blue snowballs)|
|Introduced in:||Level 1 (red snowballs), Level 5 (blue snowballs), Level 7 (Drop Wizard browser version)|
|Game(s):||Snow Tale, Drop Wizard|
Snowballs have a circular body which is separated into two halves by colour. The top half is white and displays the snowball's facial features: a pair of slit black eyes with a bit of red at the top, and long ovular pink cheeks. The snowball's circular orange hands are attached to this portion. Blue snowballs in Snow Tale will be seen holding a light blue snowball, unless they have thrown it.
The bottom half of the snowball is coloured either red or blue, depending on its type. Two round orange feet can be seen under this half, at the bottom.
In Snow Tale, snowballs are enemies to the penguin. Red snowballs make the first appearance in level 1, and blue snowballs are first encountered in level 5. Any direct contact causes the penguin to lose a heart. A snowball is killed when it is bumped into after being frozen or getting in the way of another enemy that has already been bumped into by the player. Dead snowballs leave behind some form of ice cream.
Red snowballs walk on the platforms they are placed on. If they reach the edge of a platform that has visible ground below it, they sometimes fall to the ground, depending on the level. In other instances, red snowballs will turn when they reach the end of a platform, even if there is visible ground they can fall onto. They are not affected by hazards and may sometimes appear on platforms with spikes on them.
Blue snowballs are larger than red snowballs and carry a snowball in one hand. Upon seeing the penguin, they toss their snowball, causing it to dash wildly around for a brief moment. This snowball can freeze enemies as well as the blue snowballs themselves. Once their snowball has been launched, it does not respawn unless the penguin dies.
A red and blue snowball accompany Teo as he seeks Kardius in Drop Wizard. They mostly make their appearance in the end cutscenes of an act. The two snowballs are often seen caught up in situations such as getting stuck in webs. They also sometimes make suggestions or call out where Teo is to go next. Red and blue snowballs make up the cheering audience seen at the end of a level and when a large combo is attained.
Only red snowballs appear in the browser version of Drop Wizard and are first found on level 7. Red snowballs will walk back and forth once on a platform before falling off the side onto the platform below. They may occasionally break into a sprint whether on sight of the player or not and, like all enemies in Drop Wizard, leave a pickup upon death.
Super Cat Tales series Edit
Super Cat Tales Edit
A red snowball appears in every village as a helper seller in Super Cat Tales. The shopkeeper snowball wears a red cap and sits in a stall with a red-white roof.
A blue snowball appears at the Windy Harbor as a fisherman and the gray snowball appears there near the fish drying rack.
Super Cat Tales 2 Edit
The shopkeeper snowball from Super Cat Tales also appears in this game, where this time, he sells items to the cats to aid them on their quest to defeat the Tin Army. Unlike in Super Cat Tales 1, his shop can be accessed at any time in the items menu when a desired item has not been unlocked yet.
- A red snowball makes a cameo in Roar Rampage where it is on a building next to a sign that says Tomo Toys.
