Challenge 52 Week 2 by CaptainVigilante Challenge 52 Week 2 by CaptainVigilante
A little late submitting this one, but I wanted to make sure it was in color before I did.

Anyways, This week is dedicated to a game I absolutely loved as a kid called Snow Bros. (Nick and Tom)

When I was a kid this game kicked total ass, it was kinda like Bubble Bobble but with snow men. The idea of the game was just like any other game - there once was two completely Identical looking brothers minus the color scheme, and they had two identical looking girlfriends with different color schemes. Then one day, this guy who looks like an 80s bishounen gone awkward decides "Hey I'm going to kidnap these bitches and turn you guys into snow men because I'm King Scorch beotch!"

So yeah, then you have this massive quest fighting goofball looking demons, oscar the grouches, some ugly ass money thing...and a sumo guy.

But what makes the game awesome is actually in the sega genesis version, level 50 you rescue the girls, and then the freakin Snow Bros get captured. Well, not very fond of King Scorches newly found sexual identity and lust for frozen treats you play as the princesses getting them back, they actually defeat King Scorch and free their beloved.

But thanks for my awesome levels of Observation, first it has to be pretty sad to be named King Scorch and be defeated by guys you personally turned into Snow Men so they wouldn't stand a chance.

Second, they don't turn back to human in the end - yeah, they are still snow men now. Which of course inspires this drawing because now the two fateful couples have gone through hell and outerspace to find eachother again - they are still Snowmen...

I can't really imagine they'd all be thrilled at that in the end.

Btw - Nick is saying "Hey... check out those freaks with the mustaches, what kind of curse do they got?"

and Tom is telling the Princesses "At least we're not something useless like bubble dragons!"

EDIT, other notes:

-Snow Bros 2 is creepy, lets pretend it never existed.

-A few people I've showed this to IRL agreed that for some reason, you could almost have Adam Corolla and Jimmy Kimmel as the voices of Nick and Tom according to this pic- I blame the eyebrows.

Thanks, it does look a little Disney now that you mention it.

I hope someday, a competent company buy their rights and remake their games for steam or a console.

Playing as the princesses in the Genesis version was awesome. I wasn't expecting it either at the time. Sure had Super Princess Peach beat by a few years.

It was quite awesome, I could only imagine the Princesses saying when the Brothers got captured "OH HEEEELLLLLLL NO"

I think the reversed roles was a new concept for the time, it actually had me impressed. Teri and Tina are just about the only damsels from that time period I can recall that had the tables turn like that.

It was a great addition to the game, one of the best moves for it...instead of that abomination of a sequel where they just...wtf.

Gameplay-wise, the sequel was fun and made some nice additions as well as good additional characters, but the whole thing was just... A mess, put politely. The music was nowhere near as good, some parts were plain unfair, Teri looked weird in it, and those faces at the Character Select screen... Jesus Christ, they haunted my dreams.

Also that Rabbit boss was one of the worst things I've ever been through. I played through the game with a friend of mine and even with both of us attacking it all we could, it took us close to ten minutes, fifteen continues and lots of blood, sweat and tears before he decided to die.Seriously, to hell with that boss.

I aways asked myself if this game is a original creation from Capcom or just a convertion. If this game is original from the team, they could use one of these characters for Marvel vs Capcom 3. I mean, they out lot's of no sense character in MvsC2. Why not Nick or Tom, at least they're funny. X)

Heheh yeah, though the original developer for the game was infact Toaplan - same guys that brought you... Zero Wing.

Yes, you are right. Capcom made a convertion for NES console, this game I used to play, and very much.

Good stuff too. When I was a lil kid I used to make paper cut outs of the Snow Bros and have my own lil adventures on a level I drew...

Though, the video game was easier to play with, haha.

Yes, but if I remember correctly in Arcades the characters had some powers that Capcom didn't used to NES version. Oh well, now I have to find a nice emulator and try to play the arcade version. =P

That's another awesome picture. And yeah, I've seen screenshots of Snow Bros. 2 as well, REALLY creepy disturbing looking baby faces. I think I speak for everyone when I say... WTF!?

Indeed. Too bad it wasn't animated, voiced and made for the CD-I though, otherwise it would've made good Youtube Pooping material XD.

It's the only thing that made those shitty ass Zelda games on CD-I somewhat tolerable, the fact that years later they're now comedic gold.

Could you believe there are games out there with WORSE voice acting? I speak of course of Megaman 8, with it's drunken Dr. Light who can't make a coherent sentence, and Magician Lord which not only has some of the worst Engrish known to man, but actually has some guy speaking those lines in a hilariously bad voice.
