Winter is coming (as every year actually...), time for some skiing!
Enjoy going down the slope, trying to beat your previous track record or freeriding skills!
Grab coins for some extra time bonus - watch out for off track hazards!
Your polar jacket can sustain a couple of direct hits, avoid trees anyway...
Note: there is no end racing line - you will loose :] question is how much time will you last?
- Left/Right: control direction
- c: jump (hold to charge)
- x: restart (if stuck)
- follow GPS pointer if lost
- blue: easy
- red: moderate, with side tracks. Practice your tricks.
- black: heavy slope, with side tracks. Tricks or time out :)
About the PICO-8 Advent Calendar
This winter another group of PICO-8 elves has worked hard to release a shiny new toy every day in December. Check out the Pico-8 Advent Calendar 2019 each day for a new surprise!
There's even more festive fun waiting on last year's calendar! https://www.lexaloffle.com/bbs/?tid=32388
With the theme being set to winter, I had this prototype ready to test the idea:
The gameplay evolved from some endless runner to something more akin a time attack game.
Thanks to feedback from early testers, and several gameplay changes, I think I have something that is fun to play and challenging enough!
Source code (+unminified version): https://github.com/freds72/midwinter
- updated: high level gameplay :]
- know bug: minor visual artifacts on black track (due to the way I cull terrain)
Superb game but MAN I am just no good at these action games let alone making it 3D. You might increase the skier's vocabulary though as I'm pretty sure in the infinite spinng and crashing I would've said some OTHER things along the lines of.
"Jane, stop this crazy thing !"
"Look at that, another tree."
"Turn off the spin cycle, I'm dry already !"
You still get my STAR though for outstanding work.
