Many might remember taking to the slopes on your iOS device a couple of years ago, and having one hell of a good time trying to out run the avalanches and of course trying to hitch rides on the backs of penguins, yetis, eagles, and of course snow mobiles. Well it turns out there is a sequel, and one that I think you'll be very interested in.
Now this is the type of game where the slopes are going to be randomized so you're not going to be able to master the course if you play over and over again, but in my opinion that is one fo the best features about the game. There are definitely going to be times where you're just not feeling the way that you're skiing the the course and end up dying really early, have no fear you're not going to have to ski that exact way ever again.
So this time Ski Safari 2 centers around three different locations, a snowy location, a prehistoric location, and a western themed location. In each one you will find a version of the penguin, the yeti, the eagle, and the snow mobile, however you're going to find that each location has their own special rides that you will get to interact with as well so there's definitely a further diversity of fun to be had.
In each of these locations there's going to be 30 goals to accomplish and accomplishing said goals can give you bonuses and more. Some of the bonuses, as was the case in the first game is how you start the game. When you first play the game you're going to be sliding down the hills in your bed, but play enough then you'll start with skiing on a penguin, and as you might have figured out the animals/vehicles that you can ride start to open up as you accomplish more of the goals.
Now the way you unlock each of these locations is through coins, you can collect them through in-game play as well as completing those goals. So to be honest there's not a WHOLE lot of grind to open up new areas, but you're not going to be able to play all of them right off the bat.
One of the features that I really like about this version of the game versus the original is that you can perform tricks while in the the air, be it on your skis or riding on the back of something. There's also these photo opportunities that make for some fun trick attempts to see what kind of pictures you can come up with.
Overall this game is solid, this is a very polished game that I think anyone who is looking for a game to put a little bit of time into at a time, but ends up playing a couple more times than first anticipated will enjoy. There's enough subtle variety in the locales and sure most of the goals are the same from location to location, but to achieve them each time definitely brought a smile to my face. Seriously this is game that you should add to your collection on your iOS device. This game gets a 9.3 out of 10.
