    A Good Snowman is Hard to Build feels like a game jam that has been polished beyond its initial remit.

    This easy to learn puzzle game puts smart little puzzles in a peaceful and cute visual style. It is a pity the game is short and neither the gameplay nor surroundings evolve, which is why this game feels more like a mobile title than one for PC.

It's a puzzle game with a simplistic premise-build snowman. Each level requires 1-3 snowmen to be built in it. Each snowman consists of three snowballs (large, medium, and small) and there is snow on the ground in certain areas that increase the size of your snowballs as you roll through them. The challenge comes from how to position your snowballs so they don't become too big. It's a simplistic premise that is challenging in execution. Mechanically you can rewind a step or restart the level in an instant which you will need as there is a lot of trial and error as you figure out the proper order of the steps you need to take.

    The visuals are much the same as the gameplay-simplistic yet beautiful. The atmosphere is a wonderful blend of melancholy and joy. The snowmen you build have names and distinct appearances and your main character is a silent monster that really just looks like a black jujube with arms and legs. It's a great puzzle game with a great world that warms your heart as you trudge through cyber snow. I would highly recommend this game to anybody who likes puzzles.
