It's ok. They hide OF pretty damn well, I just would like that they didn't have it at all.

Don't like? Don't use. Personally, I would like every game to have OF.

Playing this game makes me really, really glad I didn't spend the 2.99 on Canabalt or Robot Unicorn Attack. Neither can hold a candle to the mighty Solipskier

Any useful tactics gleaned from watching the video in the first post?

I didn't watch it actually mate, maybe that's where I was going wrong!

Gaining speed seems to be a problem my good man. But I just got a score of 5,696,829

Is that good?

lol... compared to the leaderboards? No, it sucks! But don't worry - I'm down there with you! I'm beginning to get a hang of it... the whole trick is getting up speed which I'm finding can be done a few ways.

- get yourself near the top of the screen, and then start drawing a slight downwards slope (very slight) and then you'll see the skier begin to speed up... then, draw slight hills and this get the little fella up and scoring... (eg... down, then up, down, then up... wash, rinse and repeat) repeating this a few times should build up both score and speed.

- get airborne when passing through the green flags... will increase your score multiplier.

- tunnels... get through these and as soon as you exit, draw a steep jump and get some serious airtime. Don't forget to watch your descent.

- get through gates... this seems to give a boost?

...anyone else with some tips?

...oh yeah... keep an eye out for 1) jumps (which I still suck at)... and 2) blocked parts as they come along... both = game over.

But damn... despite being really tricky, I'm loving this more than words! Wish they'd introduce challenges and multiplier via bluetooth/local Wi-Fi... or even more? Hoping, wishing, dreaming...
