The Snow Runs Red is a multidirectional shooter by Mockery, JackSmack and poxpower.

This is my second guide, so again, please bare with me if the formatting is strange.

**************************************
**************************************
OVERVIEW
**************************************
**************************************

-I've found 8 medals, so this guide will cover those 8 medals. The total points combine equals 400.
-This game gets repetitive, fast. The map is always the same, and the only visible change with upgrades happens to the Christmas tree at the center.
-You can only shoot in eight directions meaning it's not a point and click so you can't hide out and shoot from a corner.
-Guns are shot out from the Christmas tree in the form of presents, each have limited ammo. When you pick up a new present, your current weapon is replaced.

STRATEGIES
**************************************
**************************************

Your strategy will depend on vary from weapon to weapon, and your own playing style, but here are some useful tips.

[*]Weapons
-The best weapon, hands down, is the machine gun. You might think the rocket launcher with it's one hit kill is better, but trust me it's not. If you get your hands on this weapon, stand directly in the middle(in front of the tree and hold the firing butting while spinning Mr.s Claus around. Her aiming is limited, but if you do this, your tree will be safe and you'll pretty much kill any spawning enemy for a good 30-40 seconds I think.

-The second most useful weapon for me was the shotgun. Now generally you can't shoot from a corner because you're limited, but since the shotgun spreads out, you'll have a good angle from a corner.

-Third best weapon is the disk launcher. It's a multikill weapon. Its only downside is the small amount of ammo.

-Fourth best would be a tie between the mines and the rocket launcher, and from then on it's your own personal choice.

[*]Upgrading
In the beginning, upgrading will be annoying since you'll have very little income, but I suggest you upgrade your ammo and the gift drop rate and your ammo capacity. You might be tempted to upgrade the tree and Mrs. Claus, but don't unless you need to. You see, the thing is that the health drops are random. Most of the time the enemies will drop health items when you least need them, and that's annoying. If you find that your health is running low after the end of a round, upgrade your health and the next round you'll be up to full health. As you can see, there are only 6 health upgrades so this is the only number of times you'll have a guaranteed HP refill. You'll have to be even more careful with your trees Upgrades, seeing as there are no health drops for the tree.

[*]Enemies
There is no set way to deal with them, you'll just have to do your best to avoid and shoot if you don't have a gift weapon. I do, however, recommend killing the fat kids as soon as they appear. If you don't kill them first, they'll explode and there's a good chance you'll get hit by one of the flying projectiles.
