The game is set to the pole and centers Frostbite Bailey. A good portion of the screen is covered by water of an arctic river with floating ice blocks. Arranged on 4 lines moving horizontally. The player can move itself and jump over them, trying to avoid snow geese, killing clams and Alaskan king crab. In doing so the player accumulates the ice blocks for the construction of the igloo, they serve 15, inside which rifugirasi before the temperature reaches zero degrees fahrenheit.
In the higher levels takes a polar bear Grizzly walking on the shore and that must be avoided. The levels alternate with large and small blocks of ice. Small pieces allow Frostbite to pass on that side without falling in the water.
Whenever Bailey jumps on ice blocks, they change color from white to blue, receiving an igloo piece that starts to come together at the top right of the screen. When all the ice blocks have become blue back white and accumulation of pieces can start again. If you press the joystick button, the ice blocks change direction.
Once completed the igloo, Bailey can get into it and so go to the next level with a greater degree of difficulty.
