skihunt.gif (2963 bytes)Even with an exception skiing simulation, unvaried gameplay quickly wears thin. It's always a pleasure to experience new twists intan otherwise rigid concept. This underground pirate stepped a bit too far when the slaughter of wildlife was introduced in combination with a harmless sport.

Play commences on a tame note, as one must dodge upwardly scrolling trees. In round two the bloodshed begins by exterminating caribou. Each stage alternates between the original sport and knocking off wildlife. Additional obstacles to avoid include rocks and balloons, while bears and beavers fall prey to your marksmanship in subsequent rounds.

In spite of the bad taste, this is an enjoyable, albeit repetitious concept. Kudos to this unknown company for injecting some originality rather than stripping an existing game of its quality.
