I've never been a big fan of the winter and the cold weather normally induces the outbreak of a giant frown across my forehead.

The freezy season seems to have had the same effect on the colored faces featured in Snow Lines too. Luckily though, you can turn their frowns upside down simply by joining them up in lines with other faces of the same color, to make them smile. I say 'simply' but in actual fact this game turns out to be a lot trickier than it sounds.

You can connect matching colored faces together in lines that run horizontally, vertically or diagonally, so there are plenty of options. Unfortunately for you, what starts off as a grid with just a few faces on quickly becomes a frenzy of freezing frowns as more and more of the little critters pop up in squares at random across the game board. What's more, you can only move a face if it isn't blocked by other faces, which quickly becomes the case, especially in the later levels.

Although it represents a serious challenge of your vision and dexterity, I'm happy to say that Snow Lines is great fun to play. There are several different game modes (Arcade Game, Progress Game, Timed, etc.) and loads of levels to get through.

The colorful graphics are cute and lively and the sound is simply excellent. Normally I become annoyed with the repetitive ditties that loop in the background of these kind of puzzle games, but the dreamy tunes in Snow Lines made me want to keep the sound turned on. The SFX too are pretty funny, and the cries of joy that leap out of the creatures when you join them up make you all warm and fuzzy inside.

The only thing I felt Snow Lines lacked is a little more variety. It would've been nice to have some different power-ups to collect or more diversity in terms of the game backgrounds.

Nevertheless, if you want cheering up on a glum day, Snow Lines provides a great remedy.

Can you imagine anything worse than a dull winter evening on your own? How much better would it be to spend your time in a crowded party with cheerful friends, where there are lot of jokes and amusement? But have you ever tried to organize a feast yourself? If you have, you know how complicated it can be. Snow Lines is not necessarily easier, but it’s a much more fascinating! In this logical arcade game you should, with all your sharpness, gather together all who are having a terrible time alone, into merry company.

Snow Lines is arguably the best 'Lines' game yet. You are able to play against the clock or to set up dizzying records; achieve high scores; or try to overcome dozens of original levels. Several game modes give the opportunity to get as much amusement as possible out of Snow Lines, and flexible rules help you to find something new in this game every single time you play.

Just load it up and you’ll be inveigled into a vortex of smiles, excitement and riddles which get evermore complicated as you play!
