Atari STACE (Advanced Computer Entertainment)
Animation, backgrounds and perspective are quite superb. Not much gameplay but enormous playability - enough to keep you trying to shave off those fractions of a second for a long, long time.
Atari STThe Games Machine (UK)
Fine use of the machine's capability to handle fast moving, colourful graphics. All options are selected from graphic screens with well drawn backdrops. Sound is minimal - just the noise of the skis - but effective. Probably the best simulation on this theme, and definitely the one to play if you're into winter sports.
Amstrad CPCACE (Advanced Computer Entertainment)
Graphically not as accomplished as the ST version, obviously, but shares its tremendous speed and great animation.
Amstrad CPCThe Games Machine (UK)
Not renowned for fast-moving graphics, Super Ski changes that with this extremely playable, fast simulation. Graphics are similar to the ST's, though more blocky and you do lose the graphic options screens - they are displayed in text form. The game however, translates marvellously.
Atari STST Action
The behind-the-skier view, together with the way in which the courses twist and turn, help to add to the game's realism. I thoroughly enjoyed this game and recommend it to everyone. It's definitely not easy, but it's certainly great fun.
DOSThe Games Machine (UK)
If you can bear the cyan/purple/white colour scheme of the PC (there is no EGA colour option) Eddie Edward's Super Ski is fine. Remarkable similar to the Amstrad version in terms of speed and structure but not a hint of sound.
