Ski King is a fun freeware game coded by Scott Haag in 1996. The idea is simple: ski down all 50 hills in the game without hitting the trees. For every 10 hills you get past, you are rewarded with a new 'life.' A simple game with simple VGA graphics, but is a lot of fun nonetheless. Well worth a look if you like Ski Free or similar games. It's quite interesting how simple games can capture our attention for so long - perhaps that's why Atari games remain so popular even decades later. Anyway, this is yet another nice little DOS game that won't blow your mind, but will entertain you for much longer than you care to admit ;) It runs way too fast on modern computers, so make sure you use a slowdown program like Mo' Slo.
