Mogul Maniac is a 1st-person perspective (although you can see your ski's) skiing game where the objective is to get through the open and and closed gates as quickly as possible.

The gates consists of 2 poles of the same color: either red or blue of which the objective is to ski between those poles.

The game consists of 9 different courses as well as 2 different difficulty settings (novice and expert). In the novice setting you will be penalized 5 seconds for each gate you miss, the expert setting however automatically disqualifies you if you miss a gate (although you still can complete the run).

There also is no limit to the number of players that can play, but only the fastest time will be shown on the screen.

Amiga Inc. went on to develop the Amiga line of computers. They developed a demonstration game using the aforementioned joyboard, in which the aim was to sit on it without moving, like a worshiping Guru. Moving was known as a 'Guru Meditation error', a term which became one of the error messages on the Amiga computer.
