Alpine Alpaca

Hit the slopes and score as many gates as you can. Use your cards to steer and build your deck as you go!

❎ use card

That's all there is to it really! Every third gate you pass you can add cards to your deck with various effects. Maybe speed up and get more points? Or even dare to use the jump card? Experiment with cards and obstacles to get the most points.

Good luck!

Spent forever trying to get past the 50s then suddenly had a 84 point run. Exhilarating!

I'd love to see different modes like a zen more, or one where you can hold more cards in your hand.

wow! That’s a lot. Any specific strategy?

Ok, I guess I mainly did just comment to brag...

The 1-length cards are usually the best, so I use my 3-length cards as soon as I can, and I get the short schuss and ripping cards whenever possible. Later I get a snow bomb.

I noticed that you get extra points for hitting multiple sticks/rubble in a row so I'm always looking for those! I usually end up between 30-50 but I was just really lucky that run.

Amazing this game, I loved this mechanic

Thanks! Glad you enjoyed it!

48 so far. man this is addictive. would be cool to have a regular mode where you can just ski like on the front screen too

Are you available for dev hire? 

Depends a lot on what the project is, but sometimes yes!

Are there plans for a downloadable version. I would like to play offline. Very cool concept.


A top-5 PICO-8 game for me without even thinking about it!

I used the obstacle jumper but didn't jump the 2nd obstacle, it felt a bit unfair ;(
Anyway, I like the sound design and the progression system :) 
The game is a bit of a gambling game since you get random pieces which is a bit strange in a game that asks you to be strategic, but hey that's Xcom bab- oh wait wrong game xD


Great game, interesting navigation mechanic. Two questions: how does it decide which obstacle hits are and aren't wipeouts and how doesit decide which way you bounce off an obstacle?


Glad you like it!

Trees and big boulders kill you. 

Flags bounce you into the gate. 

Rubble bounces you to the right and tree stumps to the left. There’s a little arrow in the snow next to them. :)

So much fun to play. Love the art style, game play and brilliant use of deck mechanic. The gameplay is perfectly suited for mobile. You really should considering bring it to the app markets!! I'd totally buy if it was on there  : )
