It may not be a ski sim, but Epyx were definitely on the downward slope when this was
released to coincide with the Seoul 1988 Olympics.
Those South Koreans are great animal lovers, so it's apt that the game stinks
like a boiled kitten.
Most of the events are poorly implemented, with some overcomplex control systems required
for Assymetric Bars and Rings.
Sadly, the 3-D view Cycling is the only event to offer head-to-head, two-player competition.
Don't get it confused with the infinitely superior Summer Games II!
