Ice Guys is a cute platform jump'n'run by Protovision for 1 or 2 players simultaneously. What's more, the game features nice multicolor graphics and superb digisynth music.

What is Ice Guys all about? The story so far: During the last, snow-rich winter, from some unknown location lots of little, mean monsters came and decided to kidnap some snowmen! And so, lots of these beloved creatures disappeared over night from gardens, sidewalks and parks, leaving big holes in the beautiful winter landscape. Two former Antarctic researchers, which are now retired and have opened an ice café, can't accept this impertinence by any means. They work out a plan and decide to fight against the nasty little monsters, to let the snowmen return to freedom.

Ice Guys features a unique game concept, Bubble Bobble could be a named as a far relative. The objective is to throw snowballs at the little unfriendly beasts, so that these get stuck in an avalanche. You then can push this avalanche, it will roll down and hit further monsters - but be careful, as you probably don't want to hit your team mate or even become a victim of your own avalanche! In the beginning the enemies can be defeated quite easily, so you can make yourself familiar with the game. But soon it will become harder and fighting the monsters won't be that smooth!

A beautiful game 😎✌️

I have a question about the release date. On this site in the information it says that the game was released in 2016 while on CSDB or GAMEBASE64 1997. So which year is assigned for the release of ICE GUYS?


Ice Guys is from 1997. In 2016, it was also released on itch.io!

This is great all around! Love it!

Can't get it to load on the Mini, any ideas?


Hmm. It should work, but the loading is VERY slow. Please contact  us via email if the problem persists, we might find a solution (contactATprotovisionDOTgames).

Yeah it won't load. Not a big deal, I don't expect everything to work perfectly on it.

Have you tried it with accurate disk drive enabled...here's a link to a cjm editor where you can set it.
