A challenging, pick up and play, minimalist skiing game powered by physics.
-Support for iPhone X
-More forgiving landings to makes things slightly(very slightly) easier.
-New playable tutorial mode to help show how the game is played.
-Music now plays continuously instead of annoyingly starting over every time the game is reset.
-Minor tweaks and bug-fixes.
Ratings and Reviews
Overall, it’s a fun game. I wish there was a way to extend the tutorial a bit and give yourself control over the speed of the game. Also multiplayer support would be awesome. Maybe some split screen action because it gets boring playing by yourself... but I haven’t been playing that long yet. But it’s worth the $2
Also... the checkpoint system would be great. It’s cool to see that you actually care about your feedback and you’re willing to make the game better.. but I’m sick of the same terrain.
Game mechanics need improvement
Overall, this is an incredible game for what it is. There are a few game mechanics that stand in the way of enjoying it too it's fullest however. The guys skis are too long which means tipping over on flat ground and very narrow landing surface. Second, it would be good to see you lead the flexibility of skis in the real world to give slightly more leeway in terms of being able to land and not bounce and flip over even if landed correctly.

Hey Art0091. Thanks for the feedback. I tried shorter ski's, but that tended to be more difficult. I like the idea of bending skis, will keep it in mind for future games. -Jeff
Please help us non-skiers
This is a well put together game. It may be tough to master. i can accept that, but can you give some hints for those of us who are not familiar with the mechanics involved in skiing? I can start, jump and/or flip Tiny Wings style, but I have no clue as to how to right myself after the jump. I don’t even understand what’s spinning! Thanks.

First, here is short video I put together that shows the basics: http://bit.ly/HowToPlayJustSki
The biggest thing to remember with Just Ski is that it's physics based so when you are in the air the only way to control your spin is by crouching to spin faster and extending to spin slower. This is similar to how thing work in real life. It seems almost impossible at first, but it's something you can learn and get a feel for. Keep at it and trust me you will get better.
Thanks for playing...
