### Instructions

After the game finishes loading click the "Play" button to get started.
This screen allows you to choose one or more fact families you'd like to focus on during this game. Choose all the multiplication fact families you'd like to focus on, and then when you're ready, click the "DONE" button.
This screen lets you know that you need to avoid the fireballs and ice puddles. Also it lets you know that this game is controlled by the left arrow and right arrows on the keyboard. Your character will move back with the left arrow and forward with the right arrow. The space bar is used to jump onto each platform. So click the "Play" button to get going.
Now the fun begins. Use your arrow keys on the keyboard to help maneuver Snowy through the levels.  You'll want to jump onto platforms. And you'll notice there are snowballs floating in the air. When snowy runs into a snowball, you will be shown a multiplication equation to solve.
Use the number keys on your keyboard to enter the correct answer. Then hit the enter key to answer the question.
After you have correctly answered the multiplication equations, there is a screen that tells you there are no more snowballs on this level. Time to open your present.
Now some of the nice neighborhood kids offer you a piece of clothing to put on your new snowman friend. Click the OK button to continue.
You will then go to the next level. Each level is similar in that you jump from platform to platform answering multiplication equations.
And once again at the end of each level, a nice neighborhood kid will offer you a piece to go on your new snowman friend.
be careful not to touch the fireballs or fall into the ice puddles. Both will cause you to lose a life. You can jump directly on top of a fireball in order to smother it. But be careful. You only have so many lives before you're done.
If you run out of lives, you'll see this screen. It says "Oh no! You did not get to finish snowy's friend." if you'd like to try again press the "Play Again" button.
After you successfully complete every level, you will see the new friend that was made from all of the pieces that were given to you throughout your journey.
