Skiing - Cartridge

DescriptionSubmit Description
Skiing is one of the few games that replicate this familiar winter sport on the Atari 2600, and does it very well at that. You can either take on a slalom run, with time penalties assessed for any missed gates, or go for a downhill run, where the objective is to ski the given distance as quickly as possible. The first four game variations for each game type are preset, whereas the fifth one generates a random course every time, providing for a new challenge each time you play. Players who could beat a time of 28.2 seconds on game three could earn an Activision Ski Team patch. (Contributed by Larcen Tyler)
