With 2012 Vikersund Ski Flying Championships set to be held this weekend in Norway, the prestigious event takes a technology forward fore on behalf of the sport's dedicated fans. Not content to create a boring generic companion app for the Championship, a white knuckle game has been launched instead!
Available for the iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch, Vikersund Ski Flying lets fans pick a nation, control their own virtual ski flier, and compete for Vikersund Ski Flying gold! Players can compete via local and global online leaderboards, and get into the high flying action while they cheer on their favorite ski bound jumpers. Vikersund Ski Flying is currently available for download on the Apple App Store for $0.99 in the Games category.
Easy to play but challenging to master, Vikersund Ski Flying challenges players to guide their ski jumper down the ramp with perfect timing, effectively correct for ever changing weather and wind conditions in mid-flight, and make sure they fly as far as they can! The game offers two unique play modes: A solo gaming fun in addition to an engaging localized multi-player mode that allows up to three people to compete against one another on a single device! Gamers can even listen to their own music while they play.
The Vikersund Ski Flying World Championships may go down in Norway this weekend, but that doesn't mean fans of this wild sport can't get in on some action packed ski flying fun of their own! The only thing better than witnessing the world's elite ski flying athletes go head to head for ultimate victory, is watching them while playing out your own ski jumping fantasies at the same time. Vikersund Ski Flying lets fans do just that, giving them an extra shot of entertainment throughout this weekend's competition, and bringing the sport right to their finger tips year round as well!
Vikersund Ski Flying 1.1 is only $0.99 USD (or equivalent amount in other currencies) and available worldwide exclusively through the App Store in the Games category.
