Description Edit | History

In 1982 Tang also produced Horace Goes Skiing. In it, Horace must cross a dangerous road teeming with traffic to rent out a pair of skis, à la Frogger, get back over the road and successfully navigate a ski course.

This title is not a true sequel, as it does not follow on from an original story and is only really similar in that it features the same character. In this sense, the game is a spin-off, although such concepts were unheard of in video gaming in the early 1980s. Like Hungry Horace, this title was available on the ZX Spectrum, Commodore 64, and Dragon 32. As before, Sinclair distributed the Spectrum version, Melbourne House the Commodore 64 and Dragon 32 versions. Horace Goes Skiing was rated at 8.9 in one magazine back in 1983.
