Bruh that game scared the shit out of me. That fucker would come bolting between the trees, run you down and fucking EAT YOU!

You could beat him but you had to be great at the game. The first "git gud" game for me as a kid

If you hit the F key, you would go faster than the yeti.

Into a tree

Ah yes, the original press f

Wait you could actually beat this game?????

You could outrun the yeti, but the game would go on forever.

I hear when it came out, it was possible.
What happened: the speed you're skiing corresponds to the CPU's clock cycle. So computers quickly got faster, so the speed quickly got faster to the point it was impossible to be good.

Yeah and that thing was fast as shit.

Omg this was epic when I was a little boy

OMG, I went into the thread to comment that was probably one of the first roguelikes I've ever played, but now it dawned on me that I just didn't know about this little detail.

This was one of the first games I played and I can confer. That monster was really scary for me.

What about chips challenge???

And JezzBall. And Rodent's Revenge. And Pipe Mania(which I'm pretty sure inspired hacking minigame in Bioshock 1). And Taipei.

Rodents revenge!!! Loved that one!

ID: hbd1bw5

Stop! Stop! My nostalgia can only handle so much

ID: hbccqum

Chips challenge was released on Steam a while back and they even came out with a Chips Challenge 2 if you're in the mood for some nostalgia.

Was there a way to outrun the yeti? I only ever played this as a child at a friends house and we would always get eaten when the yeti came out.

ID: hbbveej

There is a way (works)

ID: hbbvk93

Nice try Rick

ID: hbbv9xy

Press F

All that did was make me pay respects to thin air.

Microsoft released something similar for the Edge brower:


Have fun 🙂
