Solipskier is a fast paced skiing game where you draw the slopes to pick up speed and do jumps. Paint your own cliffs, do tricks and slalom through gates to get huge scores!
Supports iOS4 Retina Display and iPad resolutions.
What's New in Version 1.2
First of all, we've added an option in the settings of your iDevice to turn on (defaults to off) "Sticky Headphones." Which will allow you to continue listening to music no matter how fast you go.
Also in the settings menu, you can throttle the Sound and Music volume to whatever you like to facilitate listening to your own music while you ski.
We've fixed some bugs having to do with different situations in iOS4. Some of you were experiencing freezing after exiting the app via double-tap and so on, and we've managed to fix those cases.
Finally, we've added Facebook/Twitter support (via OpenFeint)in the end-game menu screen.
Good, but very buggy
I truly love this game. I hope that more web games are made for iPhone/iPod/iPad. But there is a bug that can take away a lot of fun from this game. You know those red laser walls that kill you when you touch them? Yeah, most of the time the game acts like those are the green gates you have to pass through, even though they still kill you. So I'm just skiing along, with a 100 multiplier or so, when it suddenly drops down dramatically, making me something like this: :(
Anyway, I hope that you will read these comments and fix this issue. The game could sell so much more. If you don't read this, then someone could email the guys who made this and tell them. I'm too lazy to do it.
By the way, the song in the game is called Speed Metal Messiah, by Joe Stump. And you can listen to your own music by opening the game with music playing, dying immediately, and hitting mute.
I didn't like this game when I first starting playing but after hearing so many positive things I didn't want to give up, so I kept playing. It took me a couple of days to fully grasp the controls and all the mechanics but I'm very glad that I did because now, I can't stop playing. It is a truly wonderful game.
There are two things I would like added however, first, as much as I like metal riffs I would love to listen to my own library of songs while playing. Secondly, I would love to see an additional time attack mode, I wouldn't change anything about the gameplay except limiting the run to 2 minutes, I would love to see what the leader boards would look like with this time constraint.
The greatest app in the store
I'm going to preface this by saying that this is one of my favorite apps. To see my original review (which was 5 stars) scroll to the bottom.
So recently on this iPod 5, I've been having a game breaking bug that absolutely destroys this game. It doesn't register my touch. Also there's the ever pressing issue of the black bars on either side because this game was never updated to work with the larger screen (I wouldn't mind, but since your hands are usually near the edge it can kill you once or twice)
In short, just update this game to work.. This is one of my favorite games on the iPod, I play it all of the time even five years after its release. Sure, a few new features would be nice but honestly, I just want to play this game again. I know that the devs aren't really around anymore but still..
V V V V V V V
There are very few games that I play as much as this game. Agreed, in needs a few more features, a pause button, and changeable music. But a game that has this much fun should not be put down. I bought it when it was 2.99 and I still thought it was worth it.
In short, if you don't like the game, give it a chance. You go faster at higher multipliers. And you can set the headphones to stick to your head in the settings.
