I was going to write a literary masterpiece, but then I got distracted playing Ski Safari on my iPad. I was going to write something for the good of mankind; instead I have spent 5+ hours this week riding penguins and doing back-flips.
As this is my first iPad game review, I did not receive it for free*. Was this game worth my hard-earned $0.99? Yes.
The first thought I had when playing Ski Safari was that it was similar to Jetpack Joyride, and not just because of the same price point. They are both 2D scrollers where the main objective is lasting as long as possible.
While other review sites are siding with Jetpack, I find I keep coming pack to the powdery white safari. As I am reviewing Ski Safari, I will now stop talking about other games.
Ski Safari is a relatively simple game to play; only one finger is needed to control it. In addition, the game is quite pretty and has always run buttery-smooth.
On the other hand, the catchy music could definitely use the help of an additional track, if only to help me from whistling the song whenever I’m not playing.
In conclusion, Ski Safari is a great little game. It is more forgiving than the competition, and is thus a great choice for casual casual gamers.
*If any developer would like to send me a download code for their game, I will guarantee a review on my blog. Whether I like your game will be determined in as much of an impartial experience as possible.
