Snowboarding comes to the Macintosh with Slope Rider, a shareware game by Monte Boyd Interactive.
Slope Rider features heaps of powder-covered courses complete with jumps, half-pipes and rails.
Pull off hundreds of trick combos for massive points or race against the computer and try to nail a best time.
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!
The unregistered version will allow you to play two of the ten provided courses in both Alpine (race) and Freestyle (trick) modes.
Pay only $15 for a registration code to unlock all ten courses and allow best scores to be saved. Plus, registered users will be able to add any courses created with Powder to the course list for endless replay value!
Fixes a bug which would sometimes fill a best score name with gibberish and fixes bugs for users with Quicktime 6.1 installed.

u can't expect shareware to be better than commercial games usually, but this is one pretty close. Lots of fun for a short download.

Great fun. We need more games like this for the Mac.

don't bother downloading this. I can't see how anyone who either snowboards or plays video games can think this is good. I feel bad saying this but, it's just not worth the minutes that it took to download.
