“There’s something wonderfully freeing yet restricting about this ages-old [chess bishop movement] mechanic, which has been adapted into a diabolically hard iOS game called Snow Roll” - The Verge

"Here's the deliciously evil bit of gameplay: Snow Roll actually punishes you for playing it, turning your own broken snowballs from previous plays into temporary obstacles. So why can't we stop playing?!" - Popular Mechanics

“The 8-bit graphics and the limited storyline make it a good way to pass the time” - TIME

Guide little penguin on his roll through snowy woods, tap to change direction and avoid obstacles, collect coins to unlock new balls and roll as far as you can.

Kill you 15 ,


This game is great Ive just got a suggestion. 1. Add some more snow balls and maybe lower the price to 200 instead of 300 for a win a prize. Also make it where in the win a prize the coins should be 100 and 50. Last but not least and my favorite every few times in the win a prize rotate it so that you can buy a new penguin also so you can mix and match you snowball and penguin. Other than that great game definitely download. P. S. This game is very hard but my high score is 25 it lasts longer than 10 seconds you guys aren't patient

Really awesome

I got snow roll on my last phone about 4 months ago and had to get it's really fun and addicting. I'm inspired by the creativity in it: easy controls, apt sfx, fitting music, cute artwork- overall it is really well done and is a piece of art in itself by how well all of its elements come together. Craftsmanship!
I don't see how a game can be bad...something so much time was probably put into. Maybe you don't like it, but that doesn't mean it's bad...

Mediocre game destroyed by fishy Ads

I like hard games. I like games like Contra, MegaMan, Hotline Miami, even f2p titles like Flappy Bird or Crossy Road. You know why I keep going back the former 3 titles? Because their gameplay mechanics inspire variety and clever solutions. Although the latter doesn't offer much complexity, the gameplay keeps the rage and frustration at a fun and positive level, inspiring addiction.

But when you have somebody going through a point of frustration, and suddenly switch the "play" button with a gigantic Ad that takes you out of the game, into Safari, then instantly out of Safari and into the App Store for a game you don't even want, you lose a player and gain an enemy.
