The Snowdevils look like abominable snowmen. When destroyed, they fall dead with some blood (but disappear completely in 2 seconds). Skip this scenario if you do not want your kids to shoot at animals or if you do not want them to see blood (even for just two seconds).
This game requires patience and good observation skills. You may wish to avoid it if it appears to be too hard. However, since there is nothing shooting at you at any time during the game, you do have all the time you need to hunt out those Snowdevils.
Notes to help kids:
Options for Kids:
1) As you scout out the map looking for Snowdevils, bomb any Sheevat buildings or Bulldozers that you pass by
2) This game benefits from excellent observation of the minimap. The snow devils are shown on the minimap as light blue (cyan) dots which are hard to distinguish from the blues and whites on the map itself! You will need to look closely at the minimap and click on any light blue spot that you think might be a Snowdevil. Just under the minimap is a button labeled 2X. If you click it, things in the minimap are doubled in size. This might help. There are several radar stations scattered about the map so you can see the Snowdevils where ever they go ... but it is fun just trying to find them (and looking on the mini-map doesn't help much since the animals show as a light cyan blue color dot which is hard to see ... so remember that they often are moving ... so watch for moving blue dots).
3) It takes a lot of patience to search the map looking for those Snowdevils. They are mostly white and so is the map! You need good eyes to spot them! This is a good game to play FIND THE SNOWDEVILS, because they are so hard to find!
General Custom Scenario Info:
To use these custom scenarios you must first UNZIP them and place the .MPS files in your MAX2 directory!
Once the files are in your MAX2 directory, to play them do this:
PostcardWare - If you like this scenario send a picture postcard of your city to: Captain Comal, 5501 Groveland Terrace, Madison, WI 53716 USA. If you play multiplayer, include your nickname and favorite clan and mode of play. Check the address on other scenarios you like, they may be different and the other author would love to get a picture postcard too!
Kids test the scenarios to be sure they are FUN.
A certified Elementary School teacher reviews them for content.
A parent approves them as appropriate before they are released. Warnings are included for parents if thought necessary.
By Kids. For Kids. scenarios are designed by real live kids using the Scenario Editor that comes with MAX2.
Just For Kids©1998 scenarios are designed to allow little kids to play MAX2 too! They see their big brothers and sisters (or parents) playing and want to play too! You can't trick them with some other computer game --- they are wise to that trick. They want the real thing ... the tanks, the robotic walkers, the planes, THE EXPLOSIONS! However, at 6 years old (for example) they are not ready for the full strategy of MAX2. Thus special scenarios are being created to allow KIDS the chance to play the same game as the BIG BOYS AND GIRLS play!
