Jumporama - Horse Riding Coach
Want to learn how to ride a horse? Then you should go to a horse riding school on the internet. Jumporama is a free online horse game that gives you pointers in how to ride a horse and jump barriers. The game is easy to play and very entertaining. You get to ride a horse on a straight course and jump all the barriers that you come across; sometimes 2 in quick succession. The game start on its own and all you have to do is use the spacebar to make sure that the horse jumps on time. This sounds great and simple, until you give it a shot. The challenge of the game rests on the timing of the jump; if you jump too early, the horse will land on the barrier, and you will be face flat on the ground, and if it is late, then the horse will crash into the barrier, laving you in the same prone position as before. You have to time the jump just right and on making a successful jump, you will be awarded points. There are tow speeds at which you can race the horse, and you control this using the right and left arrow keys. Right for a gallop, and left for a canter; you get more points for jumping at a gallop, but it is harder to do so, especially when you have to go through two close barriers. There is an indicator in the bar at the bottom of the game, which shows you the barriers that are coming up, and you can use this to plan the speed of the horse; gallop for single barriers, and cater for two close barriers. Be careful because you only have three chances to make each level, crashing often will end the game before you can move to the next level.
