Description: Uphill Skiing is a historical recreation of a typical Finnish trip to school circa when your dad was young. Experience gently upwards rolling hills and nearly vertical mountains that Finland is famous for. Dodge wildlife such as squirrels, bears and alcoholic uncles. Eat delectable Finnish cuisine for a boost of Sisu and cardiovascular diseases.
Review: Uphill Skiing is pretty much what it sounds like. It is an Uphill Skiing racing game. It’s pretty much an endless runner, but there is indeed an end provided you don’t collapse from exhaustion before reaching it. You need to move your arms as if you are skiing up the hill and that can get quite trying very quickly, especially if you go for gold. As long as you treat this game like a laugh and use it to do a cheap workout you might find yourself enjoying it, but as a game, it is far too shallow to justify the £3.99 asking price. But if you grab it in a sale and you will find yourself having a laugh with it and then never playing it again.
