Snowboard against your friends in Snowboard Party 2

December 4, 2015 - Written By Alexander Maxham

On Friday, Snowboard Party 2 by Ratrod Studios, was released onto the Google Play Store. Unlike many other games that we see land on the Play Store recently, this is a paid game. It’s asking price is about $1.99, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t any in-app purchases. Because there are, and they range from $0.99 to $69.99. The original Snowboard Party was crowned the best snowboarding game on the market, and now it’s back to be the best, again. Some of the new features included are the new time-attack race mode, as well as being able to practice your best tricks in 21 locations. Additionally, Snowboard Party 2 allows you to play with you friends using the online multiplayer mode – unfortunately you can’t play locally, which would be especially useful with Android TV. You can also challenge riders from all over the world, with the online leaderboards.

In addition to all of that, Ratrod Studios has added over 150 level objectives and achievements to gain experience and upgrade your attributes to perform better tricks and get even higher scores. This is also to ensure that you keep playing the game. Which has some amazing graphics, all of which are in high-definition and look especially good on a Quad HD display. Snowboard Party 2 also gives you the ability to customize your favorite riders, using over 80 outfits, as well as some exclusive skins like an alien, pirate, and a zombie. There are also 50 different boards to choose from, and they can give you a unique edge over the competition. These items can be unlocked after playing Snowboard Party 2 and gaining experience, but they can also be unlocked via in-app purchases. Which max out at $69.99.

One of the better modes in this game is the Freestyle mode, allowing you to practice your tricks and learn how to do different tricks before competing against your friends or against others online. It’s a pretty fun and addicting game as well. While the game looks great on smartphones, unfortunately the game is a bit stretched on 4:3 screens that are on devices like the Nexus 9 and the Samsung Galaxy Tab S2. Otherwise the game looks fantastic.
