HOW TO PLAY:
Champions On Ice contains five levels. Each level is split into two sections.
The first section requires you to skate around the ice rink collecting 'markers', 'way points' and 'specials' against the clock. You will notice that your speed on the ice is very slow starting out. As you complete levels you will receive points of which then you can spend to improve your speed.
To pass the first stage of skating around the ice you must collect at least 60% or more of the 'markers' within the time available, and you are also required to collect the 'markers' in order. By collecting the 'waypoints' on your way around the ice will produce an ice skating move at random which will improve your score for this section. And finally collecting the 'special' icons on the floor and then selecting an ice skating move from the pop out menu which will appear on the right will increase the number of moves you get to attempt in the second section (discussed below), thus the chance to receive a much higher overall score for the current level.
In the second section of the level you are required to complete gestures on screen as the arrow sequence scrolls into view. For example, if the first arrow is facing in the up direction, simply slide your thumb in an upwards motion on the screen. Complete this in sequence for each arrow before they disappear, and you will successfully complete the ice skating move for that sequence. Each sequence you get correct will add another five arrows and the time you have available to complete the sequence will decrease. There is also pinch graphics that will be generated in the arrow sequence. Here you are required to pinch in, or pinch out with 2 fingers (preferably your two thumbs for ease of use) on the screen. Each time you complete an arrow gesture correctly, you will hear a 'ping' sound for feedback, if you do not hear a sound, keep trying until you complete the current arrow gesture correctly.

I've been looking for an ice skating game like this. It's a great concept, but I can't figure out how to work the joystick. I figured out to get to the tutorial/instructions. But I still can't steer so well. I think it might have flowed better if it were a tilt game. And then I could tap the trick pic to perform a trick or something. Nice idea, stiff button.
I mean seriously after I finish the first level it won't even let me play anymore it just freezes up and also the graphics are Horrible you even tell what your person looks like there's no way i'll be playing this again I deleted as soon as i could DONT GET IT
For an ice skating app I want to be able to glide and spin, but this app ferls more like I'm controlling one of those toy claws with a joystick. The accelerometer would be an obvious choice... with some sparkle and swish! This app feels clunky and confusing.
