Yep, it’s Day 2 of the Obligatory Ice Level celebration! Today we’re visiting a whole world. It’s Planet Freon, from Ristar!
Freon is the 5th level of the game, and it’s a rather pretty stage. The slippery ice floors common to these kinds of levels are rampant, but there’s a slight twist; instead of skidding around as you walk, Ristar slides directly across the floor and occasionally flies up ramps and hills. Additionally, you had to make your way through chilly lakes, avoiding enemies all the while. It wasn’t all bad though; if you left Ristar alone for a bit, he’d pile up some of the surrounding snow and make a cute little snowman! Throughout this stage, a little creature would follow you around and challenge you to snowball fights, but he proved to be a good guy. You see, the boss of this world is Itamor, a giant cat/snowman thing that hates spicy food. The battle would have been impossible had the creature not shown up with some food to toss into his mouth.
Hooray! Here’s some Planet Freon wallpaper! Download the full-sized one here.
