Costas Stephanides’s Review

Review Date: 01/3/05

A great mobile version of the now legendary yetisports series with better gameplay than the web-based original!


We like our Yetis here at Mobile Game Faqs but how does Yeti 2 measure up?

The objective is to hurl snowballs at the penguins and smash them into a target on the side of a glacier - primeval darts really. There are 10 penguins in total, each one takes their turn to dive into the water and they are flicked out by a whale at differing heights and rotation. You must then time your throw to get the penguin as close to the bullseye as you can. Not only do you have to consider the height of the penguin but you must also take into account its orientation.

In the name of research, I have played the original internet version as well. The original had too much spin applied to the penguins which made it difficult to get consistent results. It also had 20 penguins which did make the game drag on a bit (especially if you were doing badly). The mobile version is easy to play and quick enough to make this a highly addictive game that you will keep coming back to.

The graphics are as good as the other yeti games and as always these games are all aboout playability and simplicity. The controls are very basic. The centre/5 button is all you need to throw your snowball. Once the penguin has been hit or fallen back into the water, the next victim waddles along to its impending doom. That is all there is to the game. The game dispays your highest individual score and your overall score although only the overall score is stored in the high score table. It may sound easy, but out of a maximum 1000 points, I struggle to pass 500 (that did include a hit of 100.0!).

With each game only taking a minute or so to complete, this is a perfect game for those after some quick fire action. The lastability of the game is great, you will be sure to play the game until you reach the perfect 100.0 throw or for the real perfectionist the overall maximum of 1000.0 points.

Check out what we thought of the rest of the yetisports series.
