Bear Winter is probably not the best kind of winter. Just a hunch I have.

I'll tell you why: it involves trekking up the Russian mountains where you'll be repeatedly attacked by "ice bears." That is not my idea of a merry old time.

Unless, that is, it's an upcoming iOS match-3 puzzler called Bear Winter. In which case, bring it on.

Yep, Nevercenter's Bear Winter has matching fire to stay warm, and acorns to refill your health, while arrows are used for defence.

Defence against what? Ice bears - I already told you. Your task is to survive as many brutal bear attacks as possible by utilizing your match-3 skills.

If you're up for it, Bear Winter will be ready to download on December 16th. Check out its website for more details.
