Snowdown is a 1 or 2-player Christmas themed action shooter for the Commodore 64, released in 2020.  Snowdown is an Xmas version of our newly released game Showdown.  This game was included in the C64 Xmas Bundle 2020.

The game is inspired by a host of older titles with the same theme, going all the way back to Gun Fight from 1975.

You play a Santa out to win a fierce gun duel. The first one to outwit and knock down the opponent 5 times is the winner of the duel.

Giddy-up and get ready to fight!


Each canon can carry 5 snowballs. You reload by manually replacing the snowballs with a click of the joystick button, or you can pick up snowball packs from the ground. But beware! If your opponent catches you out of the safety of the snowmen, then you might get knocked down!

Explosive crates appear around the play area. They explode when shot, so better stay away from them if you value you life, cowboy!

The game is best when played with a frenemy. It is a lot of fun to taunt a friend as they hit the ground and you win the Snowdown!

F7 can be used to exit the current game and go back to the title screen. Just in case you choose a 2-player game and you friend doesn't show up for the snowball duel!


Joystick in port 2 for 1-player games.

Download now, for the minimum price of $1, and get ready to fight!

Works on: Actual C64 hardware, PAL and NTSC, TheC64 Mini and Maxi, C64 emulators for many modern platforms.
