Snowboarding is probably one of the most insane winter sports you can find. Just think about boarding, you barrel down a hill at insane speeds as you dodge people and trees, which is insane -- but those three things are why I love it. As the winter months have come to an end I'm looking for other ways to fill the void. Thanks to a new PlayBook developer Golden Hammer Software I now have something. Today we're taking a close look at a new game for the BlackBerry PlayBook called Big Mountain Snowboarding, a game that provides you with the thrill of snowboarding on your PlayBook.
12 slopes to challenge your boarding skills
While the game has some good graphics and utilizes the power of the tablet we all love, the story about the developers is equally interesting. The 2-man development team of Big Mountain Snowboarding are no stranger to mobile gaming world. They first started developing with Android and iOS, where this game reached a staggering download number of 1.5 million. Quite impressive, and there's even better news. These guys are truly excited to be on the BlackBerry platform and are looking forward to bringing more of their games onto the PlayBook, and one would assume BlackBerry 10. Big Mountain Snowboarding is available in BlackBerry App World and is currently set at 3.99, well worth it I might add.
A new joint announcement from BlackBerry, OnwardMobility, and FIH Mobile lays out the plans for a new 5G BlackBerry Android smartphone with a physical keyboard to be brought to market in North America, and Europe within the first half of 2021.
