This is a fun game, each level has different objectives, first level you just have to win the speed skating but after that you have to save people on the ice etc. Each level has different objectives keeping the game fun and fresh as you progress.
You skate on it left to right (side scroller) trying to complete the tasks and then stop the end of level character before the time runs out. Having the correct item is necessary at all times.
Control is fine as you are on skates, not like ice worlds on platforms where you don%u2019t stop. You just have to memorise the level and what you need to pick up and where characters are to rescue. Miss something and it knocks you over redoing your time.
Don%u2019t get me wrong, absolutely love it but would like to see more of the game. Even when I bought it back in the day when my reflexes were sharp I couldn%u2019t do it!!!
Yeah, the second level you have to rescue characters from the ice, to do this you have to collect items like gloves to catch a hockey puck, springs to jump over gaps and so on, it is really hard. I can get to the character at the end of the level but always run out of time. If you recue enough characters it does give a little extra time but I just can't do it!.
Funnily enough last time I looked (uploading here) there are no longplays of this game, only a few first level vids like the one above
The collection is a lot bigger now, mind you as of late haven't bought much at all barring a few Amstrad titles. I do like this game but can never get through the second stage (one after the speed skating in vid) on it.
