Apple Games Features Shaun White Snowboarding
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Apple Games has taken to the slopes with a new article about the recently released Mac version of Shaun White Snowboarding. The game, developed in collaboration with Olympic gold medalist Shaun White, allows players to experience a variety of snowboarding action. Apple's article includes an overview of the gameplay and a short bio of Shaun White.

Each of the game’s mountains is an open-ended environment that you can explore any way you want: master tricks, take on challenges and competitions, and discover secret areas. Take chair lifts, or a helicopter, to reach each mountain’s peak and tackle the death-defying conditions there, or compete with other riders in the terrain parks. You can even take off your snowboard and hike into the back country, where you’re free to carve your own trails.

Just as Shaun captured one of your ignominious moments, you can film your exploits, edit the footage with the game’s built-in tools, and upload the clips for sharing with others. You can also take your snowboarding online and rocket down mountainsides with others or invite them to multiplayer-only game modes, such as rat race — in which everyone gets to create their own route to the finish line — or betting challenge, where you put up some of your hard-earned cash and see who’s faster at time-based tricks.

You also accumulate money during single-player action — all of your earnings go toward not just new accessories, such as clothes and backpacks, but also new snowboards that are perfect for specific situations. For example, racing requires a board with the right length and friction for maximum speed, but you’ll want a board with perfect amplitude (flex and pop) for getting plenty of height and hang time during tricks.
