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.

Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

Good game (and for those young-un's unfamiliar with the original, SkiFree was an old Windows 3.0 game that used to be popular in the schools, with the Yeti being the most memorable)

You really should have done a better job at explaining the deaths though, or at least have some kind of check box for each kind of death so we'll know what we still have to do. As-is, pretty sure I've already died in at least 13 different ways, and no 13 deaths medal.

It becomes pure tedium and frustration obtaining that medal when you've already exhausted what seem like all possible deaths.

I've run into everything, exploded while hitting everything, broken neck, hypno-death, yeti death, death by being run over by both skiiers and motorists, death by fridges, death by pole, death by pressing a certain button, death by confusing jump with explode. What am I missing, or is the medal broken?

DBuck-Eye responds:

Woo boy, had to go look at the source code to figure this one out. As nearly as I can tell/remember, these are the 13 ways to die:
1) tree
2) rock
3) fridge
4) snowmobile
5) pole
6) snowman
7) explosion - i think this can't be caused by a snowman
8) suicide - either press K or explode instead of jumping
9) yeti
10) snowboarder
11) hypnotoad - die while hypnotized
12) skull fracture - do half a flip and land on your head
13) fire (I honestly didn't remember programming this...)

I was able to get the medal once upon a time, so I think it works, but let me know if you still have trouble getting it! Good night and good luck!


Rated 1 / 5 stars

um, how do you EXPLODE when your jumping

DBuck-Eye responds:

"or Die Hard!" Death is EXTREME in this game!


Rated 3.5 / 5 stars

It was good, but the fact that it's either delay jumps or explosion jumps and not just average jumps makes it practically impossible to even play the game. If you added an option with just "jumps", this might get 4.5 or even 5. But since there is no just "jumps", I'm gonna have to leave you with this many stars instead of the amount you likely would have gotten.

People find this review helpful!
DBuck-Eye responds:

I don't know if I'd call it impossible. I like challenge in my games, and if there's no delay, it's simple to hop down the mountain, unopposed. That said, the explosions jumps were probably not the proper way to handle that...
