Bad Ice Cream 2 - Ending.png

Hazards

  • Volcanoes - New hazards introduced in Bad Ice Cream 2. They fire out fire balls.
  • Crusher ice blocks - New hazards that can crush ice blocks and move in set patterns.
  • Snow machines - New hazards that can fire ice blocks into the air.
  • Campfires - A hazard which can be temporarily put out by ice blocks, but will start up again in a few seconds.

Enemies

  • Eggs (Bad Ice-Cream) - Hop back and forth in a straight line trajectory. If two eggs collide, they hatch into alligators and chase the ice cream characters.
  • Buckets - Shoot snowballs when the ice cream character crosses their path.
  • Ice eaters - Swallows ice blocks and shoots them at the player
  • Narwhals - When one spots the ice cream character, it will charge at it. They can also break ice blocks
  • Mosquitoes - Can swallow the ice cream character and fly. It will sometimes fall to the ground
  • Warthogs - Able to create and destroy ice like the player.

Fruit

Main article: Fruit (Bad Ice-Cream)

As in the previous game, the player has to collect all the fruit in a level in order to progress to the next. Bad Ice Cream 2 introduces new fruit: coconuts, peppers, and blueberries.

Nitrome Touchy version

Bad Ice-Cream 2 was made Nitrome Touchy compatible on January 8, 2012. Touchy support allows up to four players to play simultaneously on one screen.

The screen displays a D-pad with the skin decorated to match the player's chosen character. Players move their ice cream scoop around the arena using the four directional keys. The right-hand buttons can be pressed to break and create ice.

D-pad skins

Glitches

Highscores glitch

If a name like "nobodynsis" is selected as the player name, when they submit their score, the player's name will be blanked out.Nitrome later fixed this glitch on the third of January.

Level 34 glitch

When the player collects all the apples, and when all the peppers spawn, eventually the game will freeze. Unusually, the game's screen only freezes - the player can reset the level via clicking the gear at the top-right corner of the screen.

This glitch may be due to the amount of objects on the screen - an enormous amount of peppers melting ice blocks, the player, and the eight enemies in the level may have been too much for the game to handle, so the game has to slow down to handle everything.

Nitrome eventually revealed that the glitch was caused by an unstable lolipop in the level. Due to it being unstable, enemies and fruit could escape out of the level and slow down the game. Nitrome later fixed this glitch on the third of January.

Dying glitch

The dying glitch in action

Sometimes, when an ice cream character dies, its melted remains may be under the ground partly.
