Could Code Masters be the new challengers for MicroProse? This is a simulation. Well, as with all budget simulators, they are not pure cockpit-view games. More often than not they're overhead views and this one's no exception. PSS is a very playable. The game is viewed from a 45 degree angle and your skier is a tiny little matchstick man.

Control is the difficult part of the game. It sounds easy - left/right and forward. Pretty easy to master, yeah? It would be if it were not for the fact that left is the skiers left, not yours, so if you push the joystick left, the skier turns right. Pretty confusing?

The slopes are the best part of the game. A delight to see, they are beautifully designed using clever shading to give the impression of different gradients. Another great game by the Olly bros... Well done lads, more please, more.
