Introduction[edit | edit source]
Gameplay[edit | edit source]
Unlike the previous level, there isn't any mogul skiing in this level. The gaps between platforms are large, so jumping off of the ramps is needed. Do high jumps as frequently as possible.
This level is hard not necessarily because it's hard to maneuver, but because it's very long - the longest Run 3 level. You need consistency if you want to beat this level.
If you use a fast-paced character (namely the Skater, which is not recommended unless you want to make a speedrun or are a professional player or something), make use of the momentum and do long jumps while avoiding sharp turns at all cost. They can slow you down considerably, make you lose the edge.
Strangely, the end of the Winter Games is well-decorated, as seen in the photo. There are three large rings made of normal tiles, which isn't seen in other ends of tunnels.
Interesting, isn't it?
Perhaps since this is the Winter Games, the rings are like the velvet rope at the end of a marathon.
Plot[edit | edit source]
After finishing this level, you will initiate a cutscene. More information on this cutscene can be found here.
Gold Medal[edit | edit source]
After beating the Winter Games, part 20, a short cutscene will begin. The Child announces to the Skater that he won, and presents him with a "gold" medal. The Skater looks surprised and thanks the Child. However, when the Skater inspects the medal closer, he realizes that it is not made of gold, but bronze or copper. The Child responds, "Yeah, well, it was the closest I could find." The Skater accepts the medal anyways, saying, "It's the thought that counts."
Achievement[edit | edit source]
You will automatically earn the achievement "Slipping and Sliding to Victory" from beating this level.
New Costumes[edit | edit source]
You now have the Winter Costumes for the Runner and the Skater. They let the affected characters move better on ice. Tip: Choose the Ice Skater, go to part 16 of this tunnel, and try the achievement Ramping Up, unless if you already beat the achievement.
And for the sake of your sanity, please DO NOT TRY Figure Skater now. It is incredibly hard, and it would be better to try it later, when you are more experienced.
