The gameplay is similar to the Sonic the Hedgehog games. Playing as Scrat the saber-tooth squirrel, the objective is to go to through the level collect a number of acorns in order to proceed to the next. Scrat can run up hills and slide down them (no buttons pressed). Sliding down hills is faster than running. There are many obstacles to avoid throughout the 18 levels such as rocks, rolling snowballs, avalanches, and cliffs.
Arctic Slide received very positive feedback. One example is IGN's 7.8 out of 10 rating.
