Slalom game for two or more players.

When I first heard about MacSki, I was a bit worried, wondering if it would make ISG (which was then at version 0.9) obsolete, but when I tried it, I found that the two games have the emphasis on totally different things.

In MacSki, humor is a very big issue, while traditional slalom is not. You are allowed to go on the wrong side of flags (for a time penalty). There are lots of funny things you can meet in the piste, including "bonus" objects. The object is to get a time that makes the high score list.

ISG, however, has its emphasis on competition. It is designed for tournaments with several players, and it is designed for traditional slalom. It has some humorous points, but not the same kind as MacSki (noisy bystanders rather than penguins and igloos). I also find it easier to control, but that's a matter of taste.

And a game creator still very concerned about copyright to his works...
