From X2 Games, the makers of X2 Football comes X2 Snowboarding.

X2 Snowboarding is a fast-paced extreme sports simulation, combining console quality graphics & physics with arcade style game play. Players compete in a series of freestyle, race & trick-race events across an international stage.

Fluid motion and touch controls
Optimal graphics & unique visual style
Bluetooth & local WiFi multiplayer
Full motion-captured player animations
In-game rewind: re-wind and re-play during your run to retry missed opportunities
Adrenaline: slow down time and enhance your handling and trick performance capabilities
Replay save system
Tru Thoughts Recordings licensed soundtrack: featuring Quantic, Bonobo & Mr Scruff
Official Salomon in-game boards unlocked as you progress


After learning the basics and earning your boarding pass from the Boarding School, take the character of your choice to the varied international slopes. Choose from 6 colourful boarders; Adler (Germany), Yukiko (Japan), Edward (UK), Katie (Canada), Aaron (America) & Terhi (Finland), each with individual strengths and weaknesses suiting particular playing styles and event types. Your boarder will be taken from the commercial slopes of USA, to going off the beaten track under the setting sun of Japan, to taking illicit advantage of the ski-only slopes in Switzerland, the perilous back country traverse of Chile, the night-life of a snow-village resort in Canada and the final treacherous cliff edge teeter in New Zealand.

The boarding is performed with an intuitive combination of iPhone accelerometer tilt & on-screen touch/gesture control- with 2 varying tweaked control mechanisms to choose from.
Once youve got the hang of the controls, youll soon realise that X2 Snowboarding is no ordinary snowboarding game! Successfully performing and chaining spins, flips, grabs, grind manoeuvres & buttering bestows your boarder with time-warping abilities to rewind & replay sections of the course in real-time, release adrenaline to slow down time to perfect tricky manoeuvres or boost to leave your opponents standing. Using these special abilities wisely will give your boarder the edge in competition.

For a different challenge, take on your friends in multiplayer events over a Bluetooth or Wi-fi connection.

The controls look a little complicated for casual gamers.. Any feedback from those who've played the game?
