Horace Goes Skiing

 

Ah, poor old Horace: he only wants to go skiing, but alas the ski shop is on the other side of one of the busiest roads in the world! So begins one of the ZX Spectrum’s earliest and most iconic games.

Principally a Frogger clone, Horace’s first task is to avoid the dangerous traffic to the shop before returning carefully, a pair of skis clutched firmly to his chest. Then it’s onto the piste, a downward-scrolling screen where Horace must negotiate himself between the oncoming braces of flags. Horace controls pretty well and the game is still quite fun, especially the skiing segments, and thoroughly deserves its place in Speccy folklore.
