Hi everyone,

I am the developer of Slope Rider, a 3D snowboarding game which I have just finished porting to iPhone/iPod Touch. I submitted the app to the App Store over the weekend and am now awaiting approval.

The game features:
- 13 complete courses.
- Two game modes – Alpine (timed race against the computer) and Freestyle (perform tricks for points).
- Hundreds of possible trick combinations with grabs, turns, flips and rail slides.
- Two playable characters with unique abilities.
- Fast and smooth full 3D graphics.
- Finely tuned accelerometer controls for movement with intuitive touch controls for acceleration and grab tricks.
- Price: USD$2.99.

More screenshots and info can been found on the Slope Rider page.

Comments are very welcome!

Wow that looks great! Great sense of speed, sway and tricks. The ambient noise is well done, although there's no music and the "Alrights" might get annoying.

Player characters look blocky in the video but animate well, while the environment is nice. And those two players, is that multiplayer?

Crazy Snowboard might have a competitor! Looking forward to this.

Hi arta, thanks for the feedback!

I am planning on doing future updates so music will probably appear later.
The second player is computer controlled in Alpine (race) mode. There is no multiplayer at this stage but it could happen in an update if demand is high enough.

"Alright" is not the only sound effect for a successfuly trick in the game, it just appears a bit in the video.

Oh ok sure it will do well for the demand to warrant multiplayer. Oh yeah check your visitor messages.

No music as yet, no. But you can play iTunes in the background while playing.

Haha, that's very nice! I beta tested this game years ago as it was ready for release on MacOS. My real name is even in the credits of the Mac version.
Hope you can make some cash, Monte.

Thanks Capone! I updated the Mac OS X version in December last year. Your name would still be in the credits of that version!
