Bobsleigh (Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Winter Games for DS)
Bobsleigh is a Bobsleigh Event that appears in the Nintendo DS version of Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Winter Games. The objective of the event is to reach the end of the course in the fastest time, with the event taking place in the Whistler Sliding Centre. The starting course record for this event is 00:58.680.
In this event, the player starts by repeatedly pressing the B Button and down on the Control Pad to cause the characters to run and being to push the bobsleigh. The faster the player presses the buttons, the faster their start will be. Once the bobsleigh has been pushed far enough, a command will appear onscreen consisting of either , , , or and a direction on , which the player must press to enter the bobsleigh. The timing of their press will also affect their starting speed. Once the event starts, the bobsleigh will accelerate automatically and will continue to maintain speed as long as the bobsleigh does not hit an walls or crashes. To avoid this, the player can steer the bobsleigh with the front character by using left and right on and and for the rear one. If the player steers with both characters simultaneously, they will be able to perform tighter turns and will over time fill up the team gauge, which significantly increases the bobsleigh's top speed once filled. The gauge depletes, however if the player hits a wall or crashes, which causes them to lose speed and empty the gauge. The team that makes it to the end of the course in the fastest time wins the event.
