Question & Answers
Snowmen & Nutcrackers
What's up with the nutcrackers and snowmen? Do they mean something? They basically do the exact same thing.
Answer from: coelacan
That question is more complicated than it would seem. Functionally they are the same thing, an obstacle. The way they are used in the game is the difference. Snowmen and nutcrackers offer tips on how to finish each level. For example: snowmen are always a resting spot for (good) presents to avoid explosions. Snowmen are always an obstruction to bad presents. Conversely, nutcrackers are always a resting point for bad presents and an obstruction to good presents. Nutcrackers are also blown-up constantly, snowmen very rarely. Basically you have the snowmen standing in for good and the nutcrackers bad. Christmas trees and walls also have the same function, but reading there location won't help you finish the level. They are more neutral bystanders. Hope this helps.
