- Eskimo games -

Given the name of the game you would probably think about the 'games' series from epyx which had you competing in several sporting events. Eskimo games does indeed use this formula but instead of sports they are replaced by minigames like feeding customers icecream and collecting eggs from birdsnests. There are five events in total and here is a short description of them.
- operation snowball: you have to snowball passing eskimo's to stop them from building a fort, you have to survive for about 90 seconds to win.
- Eggsterminator: collect eggs from birdsnests that are on the side of a cliff.
- ice'n igloos: Chop ice and return them to your home to build an iglo before time runs out.
- Miami ice: feed customers as fast as you can with icecream or they'll get angry, this is just like the old bartender game.
- Barbearian: fight a tough polarbear with a stick before the ice you are on melts away.

The minigames are a bit short and easy and since there are only five you can quite easily complete the game withing 10 minutes. There is very little incentive to play it many times because there is little skill involved in most the events. There is a multiplayer option but only one player can compete at a time so it still feels like a single player game. The epyx 'games' series are much better than this if you want to compete in actual sports. This game tries to add something to the formula by changing the sports to shall we say more exotic events but they fail to impress and one of them is a complete ripoff from a another game. All this adds up to only an average game.

Overal rating: 6/10
