You may remember a wonderful little free physics game called Rocket Bunnies from a while back. Similarly, there was a cool RPG known as Heroes Call that came out not too long ago. The developer behind both these games is Defiant Development, and now they've brought the popular iOS game Ski Safari to Android.

In Ski Safari, you play the roll of Sven, who finds himself in the unenviable position of skiing down a hillside to keep ahead of an avalanche. There's a fair bit of action here as you recruit hapless animals along the slopes to help you stay ahead of the unstoppable wall of snow. Different animals have different abilities to help you along. Penguins let you glide farther, Yetis let you break through obstacles, and eagles send you soaring into the distance. Only with these critters, and a few sweet jumps, will you survive.

The graphics look very cool in Ski Safari. It has some beautiful 3D modeling for the characters, and vector-art in the background. The game clocks in at just 14MB and costs $0.99. It's definitely worth a look.
