Game of The Week Snowboard Kids!

7 Nov

Today I want to talk a little bit about a game that I think gets overlooked and that game is Snowboard Kids for the Nintendo 64. It’s a racing game where you slide downhill instead of the usual “press button to move” trope. Like Mario Kart you can use items to attack other racers or to give yourself an advantage. The levels are pretty varied some aren’t even snow themed levels. The characters are all distinct both design and gameplay wise. Oh and the music is a great listen.

Though sometimes sometimes the items can be annoying such as the parachute and the bombs which are more dangerous to the person using them. Also the game can be a bit hard to control sometimes but it’s still a hidden gem on the N64.
