King Achici of Hotta Race has had a "burning" desire to take over Whiteland and Snowland fa years. Finally, with the help of his personal evil wizard he turns Prince Nick and Price Tom into snowmen. Now they're the Snow Brothers. As one of the Snow Brothers, you navigate through 50 levels of harsh wintery landscapes where you must destroy Achid's snow-melting henchmen. An abundance of snowballs are available for ammunition. The more enemies you bombard and destroy, the stronger and healthier you become. It's a cold, cold world out there in Whiteland.

If you're a fan of the frosty stars of the NES cart,the Snow Brothers, here's a Game Boy cart that should send a chill down your spine. Yup, they're back...er....well, he's back. Snow Brother Jr. stars in Capcom's latest adventure to go.
Bro Jr. is trapped in snowdrifts. A mishmash of little ice creatures, such as fire-breathing dragons and the flying Punkin Head, are out to put him on ice for good.
The gameplay in this one-player cart is similar to such classics as Bubble Bobble and the original Snow Brothers. Your playing fields are individual screens. Sno Bro must clear each screen of all the pesky ice enemies by tossing snowballs at them. When he buries them in mounds of snow, they become giant snowballs that he can jump on, or he can throw and roll them into other snow monsters.
The frigid foes are troublesome, but you can handle 'em, no sweat. Sometimes when they melt down, Bro Jr. is rewarded with special items, such as tasty treats (worth points) and special sauces, which give him abilities such as super speed.
Altogether our hero must fight his way through 60 rounds, with a boss round every 10th level. If you make it to Round 50, there's a surprise in store for you. (Hint: How about a family reunion!)
Doesn't that Just Frost You
If you liked Snow Brothers for the NES, you'll enjoy this very similar Game Boy version. You might want to turn off the tunes, but you'll dig the oh-so-cute graphics, the fun, and the not-too-tough gaming. Sit back and put this one on ice!
- Defeat this first big, bad boss by standing on the top ledge, freezing the little critters that he tosses at you, and rolling them right back at him.
- Put all of your opponents on Ice with a single snowball, and earn a special bonus surprise.
- Don't forget that you can toss snowballs up to nail pesky foes on the ledge above you.
- Since your snowballs fire in an arc, you can stand on a ledge and freeze opponents on the ledge below you.
