UPDATED! New features include:
-You can optionally make the Ninja Fridges gray instead of white, but you can't get the "MFNF" medal with this option set.
-You can disable explosions from jumping, but there will be a slight delay after each jump where you cannot jump.
-You can now sync your medals to Newgrounds in the options menu. I think.
-Jumps, LiftPoles, the Outhouse, and Slalom Gates should no longer explode when you hit them at any time. Theoretically.
-Hopefully fixed a few menu glitches.
-Perhaps an Easter Egg and other small changes.

I'm not sure when you'll be able to see this update, and you may need to clear your cache (is that how the internet works?), but I think it will greatly improve your free-skiing experience!

Also, a BIG THANK YOU to every who has left kind words about my game! It means a lot to me when people leave feedback (even the negative feedback), so thank you for taking the time to do so!

EDIT: Thank you so much for the front page, Newgrounds! When developers are given chances like this, it reminds me of why Newgrounds is the best site ever! Never change, and thanks again!

Option 1: Use the Mouse to aim your guy and Click to jump
Option 2: Left and Right to turn, Up to stop, Down to go full speed, and Space to jump.
Other keys do other things...

This game. This ******* game. This has been a game I've been working on for almost two years now. I was making this before Feed the Children, but I wanted to release it in the winter and could never finish it before it was over.

Well now it's here, so enjoy.

And also, my apologies.

Ha! Played the game as a kid and the Yeti still pisses me off! Great game though. Next time make a new "Paperboy" ;P

That's a game I'm less familiar with, but I did used to work as a paperboy, so I could draw from that!

ah the old good nostalgia, i remember when i played on my windows 98 SkiFree and another super fun game with mice and cats. This game brings me a good feelings, and i really enjoyed it especially with the achievements. First time i didn't notice there was yeti, i run out of 11km and didn't found yeti... i was a bit confused. but my luck i found an option for that. You should made by default yeti, becouse you know, someone will be confused too. And a little advice from me, i didn't find the mute option... should you update your game and include this option? Otherwise fun game, good ol' graphics and mechanics.
5 stars from me.

i'm glad you enjoyed the game! The Yeti spawns randomly in this game, so yeah, he's sometimes missing in action. Also, you can mute by pressing '0' (the number zero), or in the options menu!

Wow, I thought this was actually going to be some space game at first. I guess I should have looked at the title better. I was kind of weirded out at how strange everything in this turned out to be. It's funny because I heard that new "Die Hard" movie was terrible at least in comparison to the other installments. It was weird how it looked like you turned into a spaceship when you jumped.

I mean, I have to give it credit for being unique. I certainly had no idea what was going on. I wasn't even sure if I was pressing the jump button right because I kept dying for strange reasons. I wish it snowed here in Florida. It's just kind of too weird to really enjoy.

DBuck-Eye responds:

Maybe my next game will be a space game so that Floridians can enjoy it with the rest of us! Thanks for the idea!

Not nearly as good as the original, and the obstacles are dumb. Random fridge? please.

DBuck-Eye responds:

No no no, you misunderstand: it's a Ninja Fridge, not a Random Fridge. It's a world of difference. Play the game with that perspective and you'll see!


Rated 1.5 / 5 stars

Boring and repetitive, pixel art and chip tunes.

Those are certainly things, but how do you feel about the game?
