Choose from 6 colourful boarders; Adler (Germany), Yukiko (Japan), Edward (UK), Katie (Canada), Aaron (America) & Terhi (Finland), each with individual strengths and weaknesses suiting particular playing styles and event types. Your boarder will be taken from the commercial slopes of USA, to going off the beaten track under the setting sun of Japan, to taking illicit advantage of the ski-only slopes in Switzerland, the perilous back country traverse of Chile, the night-life of a snow-village resort in Canada and the final treacherous cliff edge teeter in New Zealand.The boarding is performed with an intuitive combination of iPhone accelerometer tilt & on-screen touch/gesture control- with 2 varying tweaked control mechanisms to choose from.Once youve got the hang of the controls, youll soon realise that X2 Snowboarding is no ordinary snowboarding game! Successfully performing and chaining spins, flips, grabs, grind manoeuvres & buttering bestows your boarder with time-warping abilities to rewind & replay sections of the course in real-time, release adrenaline to slow down time to perfect tricky manoeuvres or boost to leave your opponents standing. Using these special abilities wisely will give your boarder the edge in competition.For a different challenge, take on your friends in multiplayer events over a Bluetooth or Wi-fi connection.*****************************************Working with Salomon, Animal & record label Tru Thoughts... we have endeavoured to bring you the most stylish looking, sounding & indeed feeling game possible.Let us know how weve done, enter competitions or just generally get involved in what were up to on Facebook and Twitter!http://twitter.com/X2_Games
