Pro Skiing has three different difficulty levels for you to master. There are amateur, pro, and Olympic, and all you have to do is tap to play. Tap to turn left or right, go through the gates, and avoid obstacles. That’s it, but as with any game, the obstacles increase, the gates get narrower and more numerous, and the challenge increases as you play longer.
The game is not level-based but rather distance-based. Each time you play, you have to get further to get a higher score. It’ll tell you is how far you got in meters and the chart shows your current score, best score, and how many gates you missed. I like that it includes how many gates you missed because that is similar to an actual competition. Your score would be reflected by the gates hit, missed, and successfully passed.
Pro Skiing has a beautiful feel and great graphics. It is intuitive in that all you have to do is tap left to go left, right to go right, and I appreciate the ease of picking it up and just playing. The graphics are smooth and nice to look at and the gameplay is addictive. I’ve rediscovered this style of game lately, and I’m very much enjoying them! I also like that it tracks my best score on each device so if I’m playing on my phone I know that my best is 50 meters, but if I let the kids play on my iPad, then they can see their best score. It’s been a fun game to play as a family too.
If you like to play with your friends, you can compare your best scores on Game Center. I don’t use Game Center a lot simply because I’m not that great at games, but I’m starting to get the hang of finding people to play a game with on there. This is a comparative game so it’s one player checking how their friends are doing. My son liked this aspect as he could easily ski past me.
While easy to control, the game itself remains challenging
Pro Skiing is a fun game for the iPhone and iPad that requires you to go around objects and through the gates. You have to pay attention, but the game itself is easy to control if you get your thumbs on the screen at the right time. It was fun to play with the kids and we had a good time seeing who could ski the furthest. With three different difficulty levels it provided a challenge for each of us and I’d recommend it to anyone looking for a new beat-the-distance style game.
