Description: Ready for your best day on the mountain? You’ll get it when you hit The Slopes. Experience skiing like never before! No clunky boots, no chairlift lines and no harsh cold! Just you and the mountain–and any number of obstacles. Trees, fences, logs, rocks and poles might slow you down and ruin your chances on the leaderboard but at least you won’t need ski patrol! Tilt your head to steer and use your ski poles for speed. And remember, just because you won’t get a concussion doesn’t mean the bumps don’t hurt!
Review: We have been crying out for a serious skiing game for our VR headsets for a long time! But the bad news is ‘The Slopes’ is not it. The Slopes is a small and VERY short indie game in which you go from point (A) to point (B) and collect as many coins as you can while avoiding the various obstacles for fun as they seemingly don’t do anything if you hit them anyway,=. It’s basic, it’s a little bit of fun and that is about it! This really should be free, but if you do fancy giving it a go I would wait for a really good sale.
