Frostbite - Box

DescriptionSubmit Description
Another great Activision game by Steve Cartwright, who also wrote Barnstorming, Megamania, Seaquest, and Plaque Attack. In Frostbite, the player controls "Frostbite Bailey" who hops back and forth across across an Arctic river, changing the color of the ice blocks from white to blue. Each time he does so, a block is added to his igloo. While the gameplay borrows somewhat from both Frogger and Q*bert, it still has its own flavor and is a tremendous amount of fun. Players who scored above 40,000 could send away for the Arctic Architects patch. (Contributed by sdamon)
