Vancouver 2010: Official Mobile Game of the Olympic Winter Games This official game of the 2010 Winter Olympics is similar to the Playman Sports series from the same developer. It features the following five events:Cross-CountryShort Track 500mSnowboard CrossBiathlonFreestyle MogulsThe events that involves skiing (cross-country, biathlon and moguls) are played by pressing the right and left buttons when the blue or green markers appear on the screen. For each correct press the speed increases, while it decreases if wrong button is pressed. When approaching the finish line it's also possible to do a stretch move when crossing the line.

The shooting in biathlon is done by pressing the right directional button when it appears in the target circle. The longer the player waits, the clearer the easier it is to see it, but it will also lead to a time loss.

The skating in the Short Track event is similar to the skiing but instead of just pressing the button it needs to be held until a circle has been filled. The player then needs to release the button before the meter runs over 12 o'clock. This circle also appears when doing tricks in the moguls event and it works in the same way.

The snowboard cross event is simply about steering left and right to avoid going outside the track.

The game can be played in both singleplayer and multiplayer. The events can be played on their own or all in a row in the Olympic Games mode. By winning the Olympic Games mode on hard difficulty, a survival mode is unlocked. In the survival mode the competitors get better for each round and the player has to survive as long as possible. Multiplayer is only played locally where the player has to share his phone with his competitors. It is however possible to upload high scores online. The player can then see how he fares against players from all over the world on the global high score list on the game's official website. [source:mobygames]
