Skeleton (Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Winter Games for DS)
Skeleton is a Bobsleigh Event that appears in the Nintendo DS version of Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Winter Games. It is set at the Whistler Sliding Centre. The objective of the event is to complete the course in the fastest time. The starting course record for this event is 00:58.555.
In this event, the player starts by sliding left and right on the Touch Screen to cause their character to run and begin building up speed. The faster the player slides, the more starting speed their character can achieve. After a while, the character's speed will be locked and the player can stop sliding and will be given a rating on their speed, ranging from "Bad" through "Good" and "Great" to "Perfect". The player then needs to slide upwards on the Touch Screen to board their sled, with the closer they slide to red line giving them a faster start. Their boarding is also rated using the same system, and will also award "Bad" ratings if the player fails to board before the red line, although they will still be allowed to continue but at a lower speed. Once the character begins to make their way down the course, they will accelerate and maintain speed automatically, but will lose speed if they crash into either side of the course. The player can steer left and right by touching and holding the respective sides of the Touch Screen. When the player holds the Touch Screen for longer periods of time, they are able to build up power which will eventually allow them to perform a dash when the character begins glowing yellow. To perform the dash, the player must slide upwards on the Touch Screen, and the character will gain a large speed boost for a short amount of time. The character that completes the course in the fastest time wins the event.
