Description

Snowy, bored with serving customers at the restaurant he runs with Browny, one day decides that he needs to get back to his first passion: Treasure Hunting. Hearing of a mysterious castle with "count"-less treasures Snowy once again picks up his pick-axe and heads to the mountains that are home to this strange castle. Filled with ghosts, vampires, walking suits of armor and other creatures this castle will either be the end of Snowy or will make him rich beyond his dreams.

This third part in the Snowy Treasure Hunter series picks up after the events of Snowy Lunch Rush. Going back to the platform style of the Treasure Hunter series the player will control Snowy and will try to collect various treasures while avoiding monsters within the levels. The monsters can either be avoided by climbing ladders or simply running away but using the pick-axe the player can also dig a ditch to get Snowy's foes. The pick-axe, however, like most other tools of the game is more useful in digging ditches and openings to gather treasures out of reach. There is also a bomb and a jack-hammer which work in similar manner. One other weapon in Snowy's arsenal is the trap which obviously is a trap which catches the enemies chasing him. Other obstacles in Snowy's way besides the enemies are pitfalls, and teleports which can aid but sometimes foil Snowy. The player must also be careful of trapping themselves as the holes the pick-axe digs will soon re-fill themselves. There are three episodes in total for the entire game moving snowy further and further into the depths of the castle.
