The creepy plot
Following the story from Ice Scream Episode 1, Ice Scream 2 brings the scary ice-cream van around the protagonist’s neighbor and kidnap the chubby kids. This time, the ice-cream seller continues to catch the protagonist’s best friend.
As usual, he comes for the kids that love ice cream, and he uses ice-cream as an attraction to capture his targets. On one gloomy day, the protagonist’s best friend comes to the devil ice-cream van to get herself a treat.
Not so long after the poor girl tasted her ice cream, the ice-cream seller froze her using some sort of superpower. As said above, all the chubby kids in the town are in danger, and only the protagonist can save them by defeating the evil.
The enhanced gameplay

The game offers the players to move to different scenarios, in and out of the creepy van to discover the deep and dark secrets hidden behind the ice-cream seller.
Furthermore, the players must solve all the puzzles in the game to rescue his best friends, and the game tutorials will help them to guarantee every one of his actions. The creepy ice-cream seller can listen to all of the player’s movements, so it would be hard for the player if he cannot hide and unhide himself at the exact right time.

At any part of the game, the players can feel how brave the protagonist is, especially when he is willing to jump out of his safe orbit and try to rescue his friend at all costs.
Last but not least, Ice Scream 2 blends its game world with the appearance of Rob – the creepy ice-cream seller. The game does not reveal where this devil comes from, and what kind of supernatural power he uses to kidnap all of his targets, but many signs in Ice Scream Episode 2 shows that Rob is not a type of human being. The appearance of Rob in Ice Scream Episode 2 is the key that leads to all mysterious cases that have the players investigating throughout the game.
