Snow Levels

Post by Fabong » Mon Jun 15, 2015 3:05 pm

Icy levels are usually among my favourites in a game they're much better than desert or jungle levels. Sometimes slippery ice can be annoying but usually they get the balance right and it's a pleasing aesthetic so post your favourite snow levels in video games so I can play more of them.

Image

Personally I'm a big fan of the frosty Mario Kart tracks.

Snow levels are annoying. They look pretty but they're normally filled with dum slippery ice which hates you, Mario or annoying deep snow that takes forever to walk through, Pokémon.

I've always liked it when you're playing an ordinary gameworld, only for the snow to arrive later on...

Frozen Altars fro Spyro: Year of the Dragon is not only my favourite ice level, but my favourite level of all time from anything.

Image

It has a fantastic gimmick, great ice physics, and an amazing soundtrack to boot:

Snowhead Temple in Twilight Princess is pretty enjoyable. Also got to agree with a few others here and say the snowy/winter tracks in Mario Kart are good fun too.

Twilight Princess's Snowpeak has to be my favourite area in the game. I don't know how they managed to combine such a serene, deadly and beautiful environment with effing snowboarding yetis and make it work so well.

Snow and ice in platformers are the worst, as they basically ruin the physics that you've been conditioned to up to that point. With that said, I think winter is Animal Crossing really is something very special.

I get what you mean as things like ice blocks in platformers can be horrid. In the rpg's when snow and ice is introduced, it doesn't usually have a majorly detrimental effect on your control of the character... so for me I love to see a snowy place somewhere within the massive rpg's.

Seconding both Phendrana Drifts and Valak Mountain, as mentioned earlier in the thread. Both have lovely music, too!

Any who've played Ratchet and Clank 2 will know how much of a bloody pain this snow level was:

Those bloody yetis. :x

Seconding (thirding?) Phendrana and Valak. Not seconding the snowy routes out of Pokémon DP - slow movement, and the music drifted from ethereal to terrible.

No mention of this chap yet?

I hadn't forgotten Northrend just spent lots and lots of time as an ickle gnome in Iron Forge.

Northrend and that whole expansion was quite a time sink as well:
