Crazy Snowboard 2.2



Thought I'd start a thread to show some of things we are currently adding to Crazy Snowboard for the next update (2.2).

This screenshot shows our first attempt at adding grinds. We are also working on some new obstacles and tracks, a boost bar, and racing -- we'll post some screenshots soon.

We've also updated the bonus multiplier with grinds and also the special items so it makes more sense (now if you have the right board the bonus starts at x2 as soon as you start a jump).

Let us know what you think, and if there is anything you'd like to see added in this next update.

also, can we have more than four tricks. I though, what if you could use multi-touch and have two fingers on the screen ( top left and bottom right at the same time/ bottom left and...) to activate another trick. four is a lot, but I wouldn't have to go in and change them all the time if I could have more. Also, a custom character creator (think ouch! but 3d. custom face, 10 preset bodies and you are good to go!). I really am loving this game and keep trying to get my friends to buy it, but they are cheap (even though it is a very cheap price).

Sounds great! keep up the good work. What I would really love to see is the option to use skis, but maybe that's not realistic given the nature of the title.

I want skiis too! In SSX I don't think I ever even tried the snowboard. Update looks great so far though.

Good idea! We've been looking into some options for more grabs + the ability to do spins and flips. At the moment we are thinking multi-touch grabs (as you described) and then swipe up/down or side-to-side to do rotations. Each rotation would do a complete 360, so you would need to time it well before a landing. If you get high enough you could do 720s, etc.

How much faster is the race mode? Cause it would be cool if the tracks were design for racing and you barrelled down slopes and turns faster.

So tap in one quadrant to begin a trick, and while you tapped, hold down that finger and swipe in a horizontal/ vertical direction to spin/ fip. Do you mean quick swipes to pull off quick flips and spins like Slope Rider/ SSX Tricky, or swipe slowly to gradually spin/ fip and let go when you made a complete rotation?

And where does all this leave the flipover grab?

wow that screenshot looks great. I know everyone wants a race mode. We should be able to customize snowboard and person to our liking.

One thing you could add is a boost button which would allow you to go supper fast and allows HUGE jumps with a lot of tricks and maybe a rocket powered board. I like the idea of new tricks a lot.
