Bad Ice Cream 2 is an action winter Nitrome game released on December 21st 2012, being Nitrome's second winter game in 2012. It was due to the rush Nitrome had to make to release Bad Ice-Cream 2 that it (at the time) was not Touchy compatible until January 8th 2012 (for both Android and iPhone). Bad Ice-Cream 2 supports up to four player simultaneously, but only through Nitrome Touchy.
As in the previous game, the player probably has to collect all the fruit in a level in order to progress to the next. Bad Ice Cream 2 introduces new fruit, these being coconuts, peppers, and blueberries.
Due to the rush Nitrome had to make to release the game, Bad Ice-Cream 2 had a few glitches.
If a name like "nobodynsis" is selected as the player name, when they submit their score, the player's name will be blanked out. It is possible this is a a blacklisting measure Nitrome has taken to censor offensive words. Nitrome later fixed this glitch on the third of January.
Level 34 glitch
Located in level 34 in a nasty 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.
Sometimes, when an ice cream character dies, its melted remains may be under the ground partly.
