Original post (11/15): Headup Games announced today that they would be releasing Retro Winter Sports 1986 for iOS and Android some time in December.
If you grew up in the 80s, you are probably particularly fond of classic games; after all, it was during this time period that we saw the births of insanely popular games like Pac-Man and Tetris. Well, if you’re feeling nostalgic about the good old days, you might want to check out Headup’s new retro game.
Coming to Android early next month, Retro Winter Sports 1986 lets “players enjoy the retro charm from way back when on their mobile devices, of course with retro-awesome graphics and a seasonable 4:3 ratio.” As the name suggests, you will have the chance to compete in different winter sports: Ski Jump, Biathlon, Bobsled, Speed Skating, curling, and Slalom. You can either compete against the computer or your friend, and the game will support up to eight players.
