Just in time for Winter Olympics, we release this cool skiing game for iOS and Android. We build it for the Swedish newspaper Afronbladet, and that’s why it’s in all in Swedish. But it’s not that hard to understand, just tap-and-hold to accelerate, release in the curves, try to keep yourself on the track.
Some of the new features:
• New and improved graphics!
• New dictionary feature: Look up if a word is valid, and check what it means (iOS only)
• New Achievement: “Rare Bird” – Play a word that nobody has ever played before.
• Earn free hints by watching video ads.
• Watch replay of games (iOS only).
• Take screenshots from within the game.
• Game Info: View all the moves in a game, and the clocks.
• Now you can upload your own profile photo.
• And last but not least: Improved walkover rules in the Leagues!
We are launching Solid Soccer globally. It is a multiplayer football game for iOS and Apple TV.
Like in other popular online games, you will be matched against random players from all over the world, and to win you need to think strategically: find free spaces, play a quick one-two to lure the opponent and then maybe pass your left forward who you have secretly trained with maximum shot power.
The simple interaction – pull back and release to pass or shoot – is brilliant. And when you do not have the ball you do the same thing to tackle the opponent.
A match takes about two minutes to play. If you win the game, you get a reward card. This way you can win the new Star Players, Boosts, Coins and Training Points. The more you play, the more cards you win, and the stronger team you can build.
We have worked over a year with this production. It has been a real challenge and we have overcome a many obstacles. Having full teams, totally 22 football players on the field, animated in 60 FPS with bones and skinning, was one big challenge. Another challenge was the real-time multiplayer functionality. Per has written detailed article about the technical solution.

Getting mentioned in one of Buzzfeed’s lists, is almost as cool as if there was a glimpse of you on TV back in the 80s.
So we were very happy to see that one of their bloggers mentioned our game in the list “Addictive games you’ve never heard of”.
She mentions a few other games as well, but they’re not as fun as ours of course.
