Interesting thought! Judging by the game's graphics you need a lot of context. They do have their charm though. ;)

As for the rifle: You would just have to imagine being James Bond and those shooting skies could work.

True, true :) I think back in those days i would also believe there is some secret way of shooting skis unless the game clearly suggested it's actually a rifle... :)

It is the reality of games from that time, isn't it? A lot of things only became clear and alive in our heads through context. This game is about skiing, so it must be skis. ;)

Hah, good one :) I knew it probably doesn't look very convincing, but other than that nothing else crossed my mind :)

Also, when I first saw the sprite you put in the news, I thought why is there a guy holding a rifle ;)
