Shaun Palmer’s Pro Snowboarder is a 2001 snowboarding video game with a similar feel to the Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater series. It was developed by Dear Soft and published by Activision under the Activision O2 label. The game features ten famous snowboarders, including Shaun Palmer, Ross Powers and Shaun White.
The game itself is a sidescrolling snowboarding game that, as its name implies, stars snowboarding star Shaun Palmer. Unlike the other extreme sports video games released on the console, you’ll only have one chance to execute your move, whereas in Tony Hawk titles you’re allowed to retrace your steps (or wheels) and perform it once more.
Before taking on the main mode, you’ll be given the chance to try out the tutorial mode which can be accessed via the main menu so that you can learn all the basics of the title. Throughout the main mode you’ll jump off slopes and grind on rails. To grind on a rail, the player will need to jump towards one then press B.
However, doing this alone will not keep you on the rail, as you’ll also need to use the d-pad to keep the skater’s balance. After you’re done grinding, then you can either slide off back onto the mountain or perform an aerial and execute a maneuver that will gain the player even more points, though at the risk of failing altogether, thus giving you absolutely no points at all.
