The stellar open-world skiing game, Grand Mountain Adventure, launches onto Android

Posted by 148Apps Staff on April 3rd, 2019

Grand Mountain Adventure, a finalist at the Big Indie Awards 2018, has finally raced its way onto Android. The hugely impressive open-world skiing title hails from Swedish developer Toppluva, a studio made up of 3 snowboarding brothers.

New players will find themselves at the bottom of the imposing Hirschalm ski resort. This introductory area is where you’ll learn the essentials and begin collecting ski passes, an important item that allows you to advance further up each of the game’s 5 mountains.

FRS Ski Cross Review

+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

FRS Ski Cross is a marvel to look at, but it's highly outweighed by a terribly limiting freemium model and some incredibly lackluster gameplay.

Yes it's "just" another runner and yes it's got simple one-touch controls, but Ski Safari does one thing incredibly well: Fun.

Hit the Slopes, Ski Dude!

+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

Save Minecraft, I think the most sought after (and demanded) iOS port would have to be Chris Pirih's SkiFree. A few have tried their hand at bringing the yeti-infested favorite to iOS, but the results have been a bit... mixed. Pink Zombie Studios has decided to give it a go, regardless, and the result is Ski Dude.

Ski Dude, much like its predecessor, involves avoiding obstacles and jumping off of ramps in order to rack-up a high score. In this iteration there's no finish line. Players just go until they use up their three lives, then start over from zero. Going over jumps will nab points (as will grabbing presents littered throughout the course), but will also speed up the action. Conversely, plowing through snow piles will slow things down a bit. And this being an iOS game and all, the titular character can be guided left and right with either touch or accelerometer controls.

It may or may not be the release everyone's been hoping for, but it's here and it's totally free to play. I'm a bit disappointed that there don't appear to be any abominable snow monsters rampaging about, though. Of course, who's to say they won't make an appearance at some point? Anything is possible, right?

Metro Ski Challenge Review

Metro Ski Challenge is a fun little downhill skiing sim, but the whole experience leaves me uneasy.
