App Review: Crazy Snowboard by ezone.com
Crazy Snowboard by ezone.com is one of the first great snowboarding games out there. The goal of this game is to complete several different missions and perform a variety of awesome tricks. There are three modes of game play.
The first is free play. In this mode, you get to roll down an endless slope and improve your skills flying off jumps and evading trees. Tilt your device left and right to steer using the accelerometer. Tap and hold to crouch, and release to jump. Once you are airborne, touch one of the four corners to do a great stunt. Hold tricks longer for multipliers and do multiple tricks in each jump to maximize your multiplier.
The next mode is missions. There are thirty levels with individual tasks that need to be completed. They can range anywhere from gaining a certain amount of style points to jumping through rings to knocking down snowmen. On each level you need to gain a certain number of points to earn a gold medal for that level.
The last mode is bonus items. In this mode you exchange points earned in missions for boards, riders, and extra stunts. To use each of these items just select “Use This.” Only four stunts can be used at a time. The options menu gives you the ability to turn off game music and sound effects. One unique feature that I really like is the grab camera. This causes the camera to circle around the boarder while you are doing a stunt. It is fun to see what you are doing from all angles.
Crazy Snowboard is an awesome game with great controls and graphics. Who says you can’t have fun in the snow when it’s warm outside?
Crazy Snowboard is available in the iTunes App Store for $0.99
