4/10

Jump out of a helicopter for a thrilling ride through the untouched snow.

Funny. You start on the mountain, not falling out of a helicopter. False advertising.

So, anyway, you control a snowboarder and must snowboard down an infinite mountain, doing flips and collecting very low stars for time and points. Points are awarded for doing flips and collecting stars, but that’s it. If he could actually do a stunt, I would have actually liked it more. So, you’re given a time of 30 seconds. You get time from checkpoints and brown stars, but lose some from crashing aswell as receiving tyre damage. Actually, I thought the crashing was bad. No flailing ragdoll at all.

“Repetitive” is what I’ll sum this game up as. However, the creator tried to have change by adding logs and pigs that knock you off your board, but this feature did not reduce repetitivity. Out of everything to have in this game, a pause button wasn’t added. Pause features are needed.

People have called this game “fast paced”. Our snowboarder dude is in no rush to get down the mountain, however. Speaking of mountain, it’s very basically designed. No rocks, trees or abominable snowmen. The controls are also basic. Up to slightly accelerate, left and right to tilt. Simple, but sometimes simplicity isn’t good. The music was also simple. I was reminded of several midi’s playing at the same time. Dunno why.

No stars will increase these scores.


5/10. Basically detailed, needs moar flailing ragdoll.


4/10. Straight line repetitivity that may change by 1 or 2 degrees, but still stays the same. Hardly any fun after a minute or two. Where’s the heli?


4/10. Music failed to impress me. Same with sounds.


4/10. Teagames did this better, in my opinion.


5/10. Simple arrow keys, but needs moar pause!

Overall, 4/10. Teagames made better games like this. Same concept, but better gameplay. You could say this game went downhill from the very start.
