Drop Point Alaska is the latest game to be featured on the Apple Games website. Drop Point gives players the chance to challenge their snowboarding skills on an Alaskan mountain, conquering weather, obstacles, and a variety of mini-challenges. The Apple Games article features an overview of the game as well as a list of tips and tricks to give players an edge.

Drop Point Alaska challenges you to master the mountainís ten drop points, starting with the low-elevation one known as Kindergarten. Variable time-of-day and weather ensure a unique experience each time you set out to explore one of the largest virtual peaks found in a snowboarding game. Master each drop pointís challenges, such as pulling off a 5,000-point flip and staying airborne for six seconds, to unlock higher elevations.

You access each drop point by helicopter, and once youíve unlocked all the challenges, youíll be able to pilot it to any location on the mountain and bail out. Miles of terrain offer plenty of natural features for pulling off tricks, and youíll also find pipes and other manmade structures for grinding, skateboard-style. String together tricks for high-point combos and see how long you can hold them.

While snowboarding, youíll come across 100 mini-challenges broken into two categories: Stick a Trick and Trick or Die. In each one, you try to own the challenge by exceeding another riderís accomplishments, which you view as a replay before you start. In Stick a Trick, your goal is to match the current trick and go one better to assume ownership. Trick or Die tasks you with holding a combo longer than the previous rider.
