What if you celebrated Christmas in a 16-bit ice cavern? That’s the mood this episode wants to create for you. In this end-of-year installment, I’m trying to get together the best of the less holly-jolly music from ice levels. Think crystal blue. Think sparkly. Think about there being nary a jingle bell in sight. And don’t worry about sliding off a ledge and plummeting to your doom.
