Latest Games Reviewed: Ski or Die

Author: Adam - Published: 13 January 2023, 9:02 am

Ski or Die is a classic computer game created by Electronic Arts and released for Commodore 64, MS-DOS, and Amiga in 1990. The game features a variety of extreme winter sports and challenges players to compete against the clock and other opponents to earn medals and unlock new levels. The events include Downhill Blitz: a skiing event with jumps and stunts; Innertube Trash, a race inside a tube; Acro Aerials: acrobatic jumps on the ski; Snowball Blast: a snowball fight played in first person; and Snowboard Half-Pipe.

The graphics of the Amiga version seems to have been ported directly from the PC; they could have done better. Anyway, the game's pixel art is well-detailed and captures the spirit of winter sports nostalgically and engagingly. The game's soundtrack is also noteworthy, with catchy, upbeat tracks that add to the overall fun and excitement of the game.
