Description

The player here controls a little snow mouse, frantically walking backwards atop a ball of snow that doesn't start out so big, but soon picks up both speed and mass as it hurtles down what is revealed to be something akin to a ski hill. Not a very well-maintained one, though -- there are rocks in the path which will knock the mouse violently from its perch should the snowball roll over them; instead, with a mouse click the on-screen mouse hops up in the air and somehow, like the invisible yo-yo connecting Tony Hawk's skateboard to his feet, the snowball sympathetically leaps up in the air also, both clearing the obstacle.

The further along the course the mouse gets, the steeper the hill becomes, the faster the scenery (and obstacles) approach and the larger the snowball becomes, all forces conspiring to drastically reduce the response time required to reflexively jump over every rock in the way. But with practice and training, the player can manage to steer this unlikely winter athlete to the end of the course successfully.
