Huck It: Freeride Skiing 3D is a skiing game. It begins with your character, skiing towards a cliff. The game tells you to “huck it”, which is slang for “jump really far”. Your character then smashes into a tree and dies instantly.
At least, that’s what happened when I played it.
The physics in this game are well done and extremely realistic. That’s a problem for me, because I don’t know how to jump while wearing skis. I’m not sure how to walk while wearing skis. So 90% of the tutorial screen was foreign to me.
The game has two modes. In Mode One, you jump off a cliff and try to land in the green area. If you’re good enough, you can do midair tricks and get points. In Mode Two, you ski down a hill, in hopes of reaching the finish line without crashing. I died quite frequently on both modes.
If I’m so bad at this game, why did I play it? Two words: Abraham Lincoln.
Yes, there is a minigame where you play as snowboarding Abraham Lincoln. It is a vertical sidescroller with three controls: left, right and jump. It’s very simplistic, but it’s fun! Your goal is to collect ski wax, which you can use to go super-fast in normal mode. (Going super-fast results in dying.)
I don’t have anything more to say about this game, so here’s more pictures of snowboarding Lincoln.
Final score: 3 out of 10; needs more Abraham Lincoln.
