Description

Harold's Hills is a fast paced action game that continues the adventures of Harold the Homeboy. Santa Claus has done a sloppy job of delivering presents this year and it's up to Harold to gather them up from the snow and deliver them to the homes of children. He'll also be looking for big bonuses to -- once again -- impress his friends.

The player controls Harold as he slides down a snowy hill with a toboggan; maneuver him left and right to pick up presents from the snow, while avoiding obstacles such as trees and boulders. Delivering presents to homes will result in bonus scores, the more presents delivered in one shot the bigger the bonus, but carrying more presents also means you'll slide faster. Oddly enough it is possible to gain bonus points hitting stumps; hitting them in rapid succession will give cumulative bonuses, but this is tricky because the toboggan will deflect.

The game resembles Icy Tower by Free Lunch Design in its addictiveness and fast pace. With both of these titles, gameplay is intense but short-lived since you only have one life per game.

A final noteworthy feature is the high score table system. The game will track several things like most presents delivered, most stumps hit, most undelivered presents crashing, and of course general high score.
