Embrace the Polar Vortex! Stay Inside and Still Hit the Slopes with "FRS Ski Cross" for iOS/Android

Unity Games releases its new high-speed alpine racer on iOS and Google Play

San Francisco – January 9, 2014 - Unity Games and Roadhouse Interactive are pleased to announce that FRS Ski Cross, an exciting new alpine racing game for iOS and Android, is now available for download on the iTunes App Store and on Google Play for Android. Designed by veteran team members from some of the best-selling action sports franchises of all time, FRS Ski Cross sends players down high-speed mountain race courses, carving insane banked turns and leaping over sky-high jumps. Equipment upgrades, including new skis, helmets, bindings and other real-world licensed gear from HEAD and Völkl, are available for you to customize and improve your skier and their skills. 

Easy-to-learn timing-based gameplay will challenge you to hit the sweet spot on every turn and jump by tapping at just the right moment. Perfectly timed taps lead to better race times and higher scores, which you can upload as ghosts for your friends to race against. Progress through 50 tracks, increasing in length, speed and difficulty, and test your racing prowess in a number of PvP challenges against fellow competitors.

"With a pedigree in creating some of the most successful sports action franchises on console, Roadhouse is a great partner for Unity, and we are excited to be publishing FRS Ski Cross", said Oren Tversky, VP of Unity Games.
