Cosmia was quite a nice planet to live on once. That was before the Kreezers were forced to share their lands with a group of ghoulish monsters. They've taken over the caverns deep inside the planet and have captured your friends. Your skills are tested to the full as you attempt to rescue your fellow Kreezers in Frost Byte!

So, what's a Kreezer? Well, it's a sort of slinky spring thing that turns over and over on itself as you move along. This thingy can jump and fire and it's powers increased by collecting special diamond-shaped sweets. As well as collecting sweets to increase jump power, spring platforms help you reach dizzy heights and mattresses offer a safe landing back on the ground.

Frost Byte may be years old but it can still give the newer games a run for their money. There's plenty of colour and animation in the game and each screen has something new to be zapped and more platforms to be reached. Lots of arcade action and a totally original main character!

You're the Kreezer and the Kreezer is that yellow thingy on the left-hand side.
