Winter might be over, but that doesn't mean you can't download Dudeski, strap on some digital skis, and take on the 'raddest' mountain you have even seen.

Yep, Static Oceans Corporation's downhill skiing game has just gone live on the New Zealand App Store.

By my calculations, then, this twitchy arcade slider should be careering into the UK and US at midnight tonight.

Dudeski is all about weaving and leaping through a series of snowbound obstacles.

Sometimes, there are gates to nip through. Sometimes, there are trees to dodge past. Often, there are rocks you'll forget to jump over.

Penguins help you out by trading the pine cones you pick up for equipment like helmets (that let you get back up after a nasty fall).

Simple controls and a unique visual style round off a package that's got enough going for it to become one of those games you compulsively slip back into time and again.

Plus, you know, penguins are cool.

Dudeski should go live in the UK and US App Stores later tonight. And if showing off to flightless birds on dangerous mountain slopes sounds like your cup of tea, get ready to hand over £1.49 / $1.99.
