Vikersund Ski Flying Review for iPhone and iPad
Are you a fan of the Winter Olympic Games or enjoy watching ski jumping competitions? Have you always wanted to do such a long jump from a slope off your skiis, but didn’t want to hurt yourself in the process? IF the answer is yes to any of these questions, check out Vikersund Ski Flying for iPhone and iPad. The game is a universal app and available on the App Store for only $.99.
The game was recently released to coincide with the upcoming Vikersund Ski FLying World Championship. The competition is happening in Norway right now and should be a blast for fans of the sport. The game replicates the spirit of this competition in the sense it gives you an inside view of what participating in such a sport can be like. There aren’t many, if any, other skii jumping games on the App Store or even other gaming systems to my knowledge.
Vikersund Ski Flying lets you pick a nation to represent, and you will have to guide your skiier down the ramp until it is time for him to jump. You will also be guiding his landing for a high score. The aim in the game, and this sport in general, is to jump as far as possible from the ramp. The game allows you to tap for jump as well as tap for the landing and you can tap on directional arrows to guide your skiier’s motion and lean while in mid flight. There are left and right arrows that govern the way he puts his weight in mid-jump.
The sound effects are well implemented. You will be able to hear the sound of the snow as your skiier slides down the slope as well as the bell signaling the coming-up jump. There is also background music in the title playing in the selection screen as well as the loading screen. The visual department is very polygon based, but nice to look at. The backgrounds consist of trees, buildings and other near-by slopes.
Overall, the game may bore some of you, due to its repetitive nature, but that is the sport for you. To any of you who are skiers, or watch ski jumping, you should find it a blast or at least a nice distraction while you watch the competition on TV.
Vikersund Ski FLying is a safe alternative to the adrenaline-fueled sport of ski jumping. It is recommended to anyone intereste din the sport or fans of ski jumping in general.
