If You Gotta Spare Dollar: Ski Safari

Ski Safari is a recently released endless runner game on the App Store. It has a nice art style, upbeat music, and solid gameplay. 

You play as a skier named Sven who is forced out of his slumber by an avalanche. The objective of the game is to ski down the mountain, pulling off back flips, riding penguins, and score points as long as you can before the avalanche overtakes you.

Ski Safari has a one-touch control scheme that works well. Pressing the screen while surfaced will execute a jump, and holding the touch in the air will start your back flip.

Penguins, Yetis, hawks, and snow mobiles serve as power-ups. Penguins will increase your speed while also increasing your gliding capability in the air. Yetis also increase speed, but limit your gliding and back flips slowly.

Overall Ski Safari is a great endless runner with a lot of replay value. It's one of my favorite mobile games in recent memory, and it's only $0.99.
