Due to being on a device other than a Nintendo console, the name was shortened and the Mario characters were removed from this version of the game.

- Silver (unlockable)
- Skeleton - Guide your character down the track by tilting the device left and right, avoiding obstacles and collecting rings along the way.
- Curling - Swipe your finger up the screen to throw your stone across the ice. Sweep your finger back and forth quickly to guide it with the brooms a pair of Chao are using.
- Figure skating - Essentially a rhythm game, tap the circles that appear onscreen in order, and trace your finger along the lines that appear. It is somehwat similar to combat in Sonic Chronicles.
