:w00t: This was one of the first games I ever played! I remember spending hours on this when I got my first computer.

This game is part of the Microsoft Entertainment Pack, why only post this game and not the whole pack? :blink:

BTW, I think I have that pack somewhere around here. I don't know if it's ABW tough.

Can't remember which key it was - F I think? - but if you pressed it you went extra fast and you could out run the Yeti for a while but eventually you would hit something and that would be the end of it!

EDIT: A good reason for not having the pack is that the games were all made by different developers but were licensed to Microsoft for that Entertainment Pack. Also, most of the games weren't that good - there were just a few outstanding ones like Chips, SkiFree and the lasting classic that was FujiGolf!

None of the games you just mentionned are "lasting classics"... They merely rate 2 IMHO, and I'm being generous. Plus, those games were made in the Win 3.x era. Not that old games are bad, but those old 3.x games were sure lacking finesse and never managed to beat a true DOS game in any way.

Even as a kid I found all those games in the Microsoft Entertainment Pack rather under average and got bored of them really fast. And that's the intended audience target...
