Like an Avalanche: Snowboard Hero for iOS is now available for Free!

The critically acclaimed fun sports racer Snowboard Hero™ by Fishlabs Entertainment – proud winner of two International Mobile Gaming Awards 2011 in the categories “Best Sports Game” and “Operator’s Choice” – can now be downloaded from the App Store for free including full iPhone 5 optimization and iPad Retina support.

Hamburg, December 21st, 2012 – Right in time for the winter season, Fishlabs Entertainment has reduced the price of its two-time IMGA winner Snowboard Hero™ to US-$ 0.00. And we are not talking about a slimmed-down Lite-Version here, but rather can the complete winter sports spectacle for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch now be downloaded on the App Store at zero cost.

In the course of the extensive career mode, the players have to prove his snowboarding skills in a total of 66 different challenges on eight unique tracks. In the role of one of six different characters with individual boards, outfits, skills and special moves, they will have to make use of the intuitive touch and tilt controls of their iPhone, iPad or iPod touch in order to race down the steepest slopes and sharpest curves with breakneck speed. The faster they go and the more spectacular their stunts are, the more bonus points they will collect. And at the end of the race, these bonus points can be used to purchase better boards and power-ups as well as new tricks. In record chaser mode, on the other hand, speed is the key criterion when players from all over the world compete with each other for the top ranks in the online leaderboards of the Game Center.

Thanks to Snowboard Hero’s full support for Apple TV Airplay, the pursuit for the next track record can also be enjoyed on the big screen with 720p via Wi-Fi or in Full HD via HDMI.
