Dream Ski Jumping (Individual)
Dream Ski Jumping is a Dream Ski Jumping Dream Event that appears in the Wii version of Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Winter Games. The objective of the event is to score as many points as possible, with the event taking place in the Good Egg Galaxy. To unlock this event, the player must either reach the eighth day of Individual Festival Mode or the tenth day of Team Festival Mode. The starting record for this event is held by Mario with a score of 680 pt(s).
In this event, the player starts by swinging the Wii Remote down at the end of the countdown when "Start!" appears onscreen. If the player does so with perfect timing, they will gain a speed boost, allowing them to start before their opponents. Once the player has started, they will travel down a ramp, and must swing the Wii Remote upwards to start their jump. Doing so with better timing will give the player a larger speed boost. Once they are in the air, the player can move their character by tilting the Wii Remote in the direction that they would like to travel, with further tilting allowing faster movement. The player must aim to collect the Star Bits to score points, with green star bits being worth 10 points, purple ones being worth 30 and orange ones being worth 50 points. The player can also follow star lines by moving into them, which carry the characters along a set path at a faster speed and allow them to collect any Star Bits or other items positioned along them. The course also features Bonus panels, which when three are collected will start a short bonus time where each Star Bit collected is worth double the usual point value. However, the bonus panels can be lost if the player hits an obstacle or an opponent's item. The player can also perform their special action by pressing the A Button, which gives them a short burst of speed but can only be used once per event. The course also features Balloons that give the player an item when collected, that the player can use by pressing the B Button. The player can receive the following items:
At the end of the event, the player must land on the star-shaped landing pad by swinging the Wii Remote downwards. The player will earn a different amount of points depending on which area of the star that they land on, going from 20 to 40, 60, 80 and 100, with the area of each of the associated points scores getting smaller the higher the number of points. If the player misses the star or falls off, they will fall into a Black hole and will not gain any bonus points.
