It's fun and free - check out Xtrem Snowboarding for BlackBerry 10

Nothing pleases me more than coming across a decent FREE game in BlackBerry World and Xtrem Snowboarding was the latest I stumbled across. The concept of the game is real simple - your snow boarder will automatically slide down the hill and when he hits a jump it's time for the fun to begin.

As you become airborne a selection of colored dots will appear on the screen. You need to follow these from one end to the other in order to perform a trick. The more tricks you manage - the more points you score. Where you need to be careful though is on your decent. If you attempt a trick and don't manage to complete it before you hit the ground no points will be scored.

The graphics and sound effects within the game are pretty sweet but it's the smooth, fun, game play that really got me into it. And as it's free there really isn't any reason why you shouldn't give it a go.

Currently it's just the BlackBerry Z10 that the game supports but hopefully the developer will get it onto the others soon.

If it has the same addictive game play of EA Sports SSX franchise I'll be happy. Having said that I did murder more than a few PS2 controllers playing it so maybe this isn't such a great thing...

If you're correcting James's use of "decent" in his article, you're wrong. He used the correct word. The word you are using: "descent" is something entirely different. Look up the definitions of each word.

Were you serious there? :) I really hope not.

de•scent (dɪˈsɛnt)
1. the act, process, or fact of descending.
2. a downward inclination or slope.
3. a passage or stairway leading down.

de·cent (dsnt)
1. Characterized by conformity to recognized standards of propriety or morality.
2. Free from indelicacy; modest.
3. Meeting accepted standards; adequate: a decent salary.
a. Morally upright; respectable.
b. Kind or obliging:

By the way, I downloaded it, and it really is a nice game. But as James says, got to be careful as you descend, or you can land on your head. :)

Are you being serious? Lol. He's saying decent as in its "A decent game for being Free" not descend as in descending a mountain. Lol.

James wrote "Where you need to be careful though is on your decent." So, neither "decent" nor "descend", but rather it should be "descent". So there :-)
