Skiing (or "DOWNHILL.EXE") is a very simple text-mode downhill skiing game. You use the F, G, and H keys to steer your skier left, straight, and right, respectively, as you avoid the ASCII trees. You can also sometimes collect bonus points. It would make more intuitive sense to be skiing DOWN the screen rather than up, but oh well. That's pretty much all there is to this game, it was made in 1986 and was likely one of the author's first forays into programming. It's mildly amusing that the game will slow down when there are more than a couple trees on the screen at once! (Make sure you turn CAPS LOCK on!)
Turn on Caps Lock!
