I'm not sure what appeal a skating simulator in text form holds but decided to briefly give it a whirl anyway. I managed to get myself to the training area and then manualled (?) which started a five second countdown proving the author has spent a bit of time doing some coding. I then typed 'up' which gave me a further five seconds, 'down' which added another five, then feeling things were going a little too well typed 'land' and the game awarded me 120 points for my efforts. Although the game holds absolutely no interest for me I awarded it a generous 3 stars for effort. Perhaps someone more attuned to text-based skating games can give it a more thorough run for its money.
