Super Ski Jump is a mobile sports game for Android OS devoted to ski jumping. The Android OS version is just a slightly modified version of the latest installment of the Ski Jumping series known to Apple devices’ users since 2010. Both title were developed by Vivid Games.
While playing, we assume the role of a ski jumper that we personally made, and our task is to help him develop his career. By taking care of equipment management, adequate training, and taking part in various tournaments, we systematically enhance the ski jumper’s abilities so that he can win trophies, break records, and become a true champion. The game lets us participate in classical World Cup and other tournament modes.
Naturally, ski jumping is at the core of Super Ski Jump. Mastering them requires intensive training and impeccable technique. While jumping, we have to take care of every of four phases such as inrun, take-off, flight, and landing. All of these elements are strictly rated by referees and our total score is influenced not only by the length of the jump but also its technique. The game’s controls are based on either the touchscreen or the built-in gyroscope. For the best results, we have to keep the right indicators on the green field. This task is difficult because of the dynamically changing wind. The title lets adjust the difficulty level to our personal skills.
Super Ski Jump for Android OS is characterized by well-made three-dimensional graphics. The developers carefully recreated over 30 most important ski jumping hills, including their surroundings and varied weather conditions. The camera presents the action from the first-person perspective. While descending, we can feel a realistic feeling of speed. The game’s disadvantage is the lack of license to use real names of actual ski jumpers, but ski jumping fans shouldn’t have any problem recognizing their favorites. The atmosphere of competition is intensified by the Internet player scoreboards that let us compare our results with other players.
