Set in a fridge you have to de-ice its six compartments. Each compartment has a de-icing box in the top right hand corner but also lots of platforms and hazards in between you and the box.

The six compartments are joined horizontally and can be de-iced in any order. To get to the box you have to climb ladders and jump holes in the floor while avoiding flying frozen food, ice cubes, robots (!) and deadly lasers.

After de-icing you have to get back to the bottom of the screen to get to another compartment. This can be as hazardous as getting up and both journeys call for a mixture of precision and fast action.

Good News

1. Taxing action and route finding.

Bad News

1. Slow main character movement. 2. Not enough screens to keep you going.
