It's Bad But It Could Be Fixed
I didn't think it would be hard for a person to recreate a simple port of SkiFree, but as usual the creators for this app simply doesn't care if its good. Here are the main problems with this app.
The jump button is very picky and 50% of the time you hit the button, it wont even work. As for the controls for moving your character its just as screwy as the jump button, they're super picky.
The best control you can have for this game is the tilt control, even then moving your character is quite the headache. Besides that its way too much work trying to get your character down the slopes without wanting to snap you're apple device in half.
all these problems can be fixed with a simple update for the app, but seeing how the creators haven't done this yet makes this app look like its abandoned.
We can only hope that this app gets an update.
Last time i played this windows 3.1 was the current windows, i'm amazed i even remember this game.
Back then i couldn't pass the yeti, at least i can do that now. 😋😅
Just like original. Perfect!
I'm really glad someone recreated this app! It's a lot of fun and very nostalgic. Feel like I'm sitting in front of the old PackardBell again!!! Thanks!
