Frozen Free Fall is a mobile app free-to-play game based on the Disney film, Frozen (2013). It is a puzzle board game based on Bejeweled and Candy Crush Saga, where you explore many levels with varying objectives, such as reaching a target score, getting special items to the bottom of the board, and clearing the board with limited moves.

The game was originally released on the iOS, Android and Windows Phone platforms, and later for Windows, MacOS computers, and consoles; in the latter versions the graphics are remastered in HD and multiplayer support has been added.

Frozen Free Fall: Icy Shot is a follow up, based on Peggle.

You can play for free from iTunes and Google Play. And Snowball Fight is free on Steam.

The Frozen Free Fall games in general contain examples of:

  • Alliterative Title: Frozen Free Fall
  • Anti-Frustration Features: The game gives you 5 lives by default and if you lose them all, instead of purchasing new lives, you can take a break from the game and your lives will be restocked.
  • Anti Poop-Socking: When you lose a life, the game gives you the option of buying more lives or waiting 30 minutes to restock. This forces players to take a break from playing to prevent addiction.
  • Bribing Your Way to Victory: You can buy all the power-ups you like to get past even the hardest levels... which are designed for this purpose.
  • The Computer Is a Cheating Bastard: The wolves know what they are doing and will usually spawn outside the play area and in spaces where tile matches aren't even possible.
  • Denser and Wackier: These games play things for laughs and slapstick more often than the original movie.
  • Elaborate Equals Effective: The power-ups go from a 4-match (crystal with a horizontal/vertical line), L-match (crystal with a snowflake), and 5-match (clear crystal star with 5 sides).
  • Fake Difficulty: A lot of times, you might fail due to the odds being against you and crystals being unfairly placed on the board.
  • Licensed Game: Based on Disney's Frozen series.
  • Luck-Based Mission: Since the crystals are randomly spawned every time you play, this can happen many times where you can easily complete a level with fortunate luck or completely fail due to dumb luck.
  • Match-Three Game: Based on Bejeweled and Candy Crush Saga, you can make tile matches up to 5 and you earn special tiles from certain matches. Another twist is that you can choose a character who has unique abilities that can help clear the board.
  • Microtransactions: You can purchase items and lives but they are completely optional to the game. You can also purchase level packs or try to beat the entire game (which is over 200 levels) in order to unlock the bonus levels for free.
  • No Fourth Wall: The characters are your "companions" and they will sometimes glance over at the game board and look and wave directly at you.
  • Nintendo Hard: It's possible to go throughout the game without buying items through microtransactions, however it makes the game very hard and even almost impossible when you reach the wolf levels.
  • Savage Wolves: Unlike the film, the wolves are relentless tiles that spawn anywhere on the board and switch randomly on the board every turn where the only way to get rid of them is to make a match near them. Oh, and there's a set amount you have to destroy with only a few spawning at once, and you have limited moves.
  • Timed Mission: The "Beat the Clock" levels where you must reach a certain score with limited time.
  • Trial-and-Error Gameplay: As you play, you can find out new strategies on how to win. But, whether you will or not depends purely on luck.

Frozen Free Fall: Snowball Fight contains examples of:

  • David Versus Goliath: In this game, Olaf and young Anna, Elsa, and Kristoff can face off against the big and mighty Marshmallow.
  • Denser and Wackier: Even more than the mobile Frozen Free Fall games, Snowball Fight takes it a step further with the multiplayer mode where the characters are playfully throwing snowballs at each other.
  • Mirror Match: You can face off two of the same characters in multiplayer mode.
  • My Future Self and Me: Both the young and adult versions of Anna, Elsa, and Kristoff are available in Snowball Fight. You can face off the young and adult versions.
  • Slapstick: No one is immune to getting pelted with snowballs or even getting a pile of snow dumped on them when they lose.
  • Updated Re-release: Frozen Free Fall: Snowball Fight is an HD remix of the first game, with multiplayer added.

Frozen Free Fall: Icy Shot contains examples of:

  • Fanfare: Icy Shot uses the chorus of "Let It Go" when you win a level, as an instrumental with triumphant brass horns.
  • Slapstick: No one is immune to getting pelted with snowballs or even getting a pile of snow dumped on them when they lose.
