Horace Goes Skiing was the second of the Horace games to come out of Melbourne House.

In this game we find Horace on a skiing holiday and this game is split into two challenges.

The first challenge sees Horace attempting to cross a busy road, Frogger style, to reach the ski shop.

The second challenge in this game Horace needs to navigate to the bottom of a ski slope.

My Memories Playing Horace Goes Skiing

I spent many many hours playing Horace Goes Skiing on my Sinclair ZX Spectrum 48k.

Playing games on my ZX Spectrum meant that I had to hijack the family TV in the living room and set up my ZX Spectrum and load games by cassette.

Later, I managed to get a portable black and white TV in my bedroom which wasnt quite as good as playing on the family TV but had the benefit of allowing me to play anytime.
