Slope Rider - Snowboarding for the Mac
6:00 AM | Eddie Park | Comment on this story

Gamers looking for a little snowboarding action on their Mac may be interested in checking out a shareware offering by Monte Boyd Interactive. Titled Slope Rider, this game straps players to a snowboard and presents them with a variety of courses, complete with jumps, half-pipes, and rails. Players can pull of a number of trick combos or race against the computer.

Also included is a terrain editor for those that wish to build their own courses:

Once you've played the provided courses to death you can jump into Powder, the complete terrain editor for Slope Rider, to make your own tracks. Build the ultimate trick park and challenge your friends to taste the snow!
Slope Rider is a Carbonized app that asks no more than a 255MHz processor and an OpenGL video card. Interested gamers can download a demo and try out two of the ten available levels. Those who want access to the rest of the game can register a copy for $15.

Those interested in seeing screenshots or downloading the demo can find all at the Monte Boyd website.
