App description: Beat the heat with this addictive 3d puzzle game.

Large, medium, and small snowballs appear - stack them by tapping in the right order to create magical, animated snowmen. You can rotate the phone left and right to change your view of the playfield.

As you progress through the game's levels, the temperature rises, challenging you to build all of the snowmen before the snowballs melt. Each level features beautiful seasonal 3d scenery and sound. Snowman Scramble can be easy enough for small kids to enjoy at the easiest setting and also provide a challenge to seasoned puzzle gamers at the highest.

You can see a video demonstrating gameplay here:

Gameplay -

Start a new game by choosing a difficulty level. Higher difficulty levels will place more snowballs to stack in each scene.

Tap snowballs in order to stack them. Tap a middle, then a bottom to create a body. Then tap a head and the body in sequence to bring a new snowman to life. You can also stack a head on a middle, then place that partial snowman on a bottom snowball. Rotating the phone left or right will move your view around the playfield in 3d, giving you a better view of snowballs further from you.

The temperature rises gradually as you progress through levels, melting the snowballs at a faster and faster pace. If there are no more possible snowballs to stack, your game ends. You'll need to clear three waves of snowballs to complete a level. Each snowman you create adds to your score, and each level has a speed bonus you can earn by building snowmen as quickly as possible.

You're always given the option to resume at the last played level and wave, and previously completed levels are unlocked for new games.
