Any feedback from those that have picked up Ski Patrol for Free today ? Initial iTunes reviews are 5 stars

Picked it up and played a couple of quick games. I have to say you did a nice job. The controls are pretty responsive. But when there are a bunch of skiers on the screen it is hard to control the skier you want as they are very close together and large fingers on the iPhone make it a little difficult. That is just my initial thought. I will play some more a little later and check out the other modes. Does seem like a decent quick play game.

Hi thanks for the feedback. We tried to make the controls as flexible as possible so any touch will select the nearest skier.

The slalom mode is pretty fun too

Looking to make Ski Patrol universal in next update, so maybe the iPad version will make it a bit easier. Gets pretty crazy though

I played the slalom mode and it is very good. Kept playing thru level 4. The controls work much better as you only control the one skier. This is a good game that is fun to pick up and play. The small file size is a plus. I have not tried local multi player yet although it seems like that would be the best way to play. Gamecenter support with over the net multi play would really make this game stand out.

Not sure if we can get netplay working. Might put some time into it. Bluetooth local two-player vs is a lot of fun though

Hopefully will post some iPad shots from the universal update later this week
