The game is set in some sort of theme park in the sky with magnificent rollercoasters and merry-go-rounds apparently supported by nothing more than the clouds which float by them. You control an impossibly cute penguin riding a snowball in what is obviously a warm climate and guide him through midair-suspended tracks to the goal.
In Snowball Run tracks are made up of things like gigantic ice wafers, layer cake with sprinkles in the icing, peppermint sticks and gumdrop obstacles. Despite all the surrounding high-calorie riches, all the penguin himself gets to eat are fish.
Brightly-colored cartoony fish with big eyes, but still just fish; at least collecting enough of them will give the penguin extra lives. When the snowball is rolled off of the track, the pengiun will give a squeal of impending doom before parachuting to safety.
