With the first version dropping just days ago, Shaun White started promoting a new video game on his Instagram this morning titled “Shaun White Downhill Dash.” On his Instagram story, Shaun wrote, “I’ve always loved mobile games, I’m so pumped to finally have my own.”
It is essentially reverse Frogger set on a ski slope with moving gates and trees, harkening back to the popular 16bit games of old. We can’t tell you from experience because we haven’t beaten the first level yet, but by the looks of the preview, levels jump from snowboarding to surfing, to just about everything under the sun. Skating, waterskiing, playing guitar, skydiving, horseback riding… it is all in there. We are no video game experts, so we will leave that to the professionals… but you might see us playing it on our plane ride over to the 2018 Winter Olympics in PyeongChang, South Korea.
Enjoy a few more screenshots from our dying phone as we tried to beat the first level:
