Moto X3M 4: Winter, a winter version of the popular dirt-biking, skill-focused Moto X3M game, offer hours of fun, challenging racing gameplay. Although identical to Moto X3M in many ways, Moto X3M 4: Winter provides the player with entirely new environments that feature a morbid mix of winter and Christmas-village-style course elements and obstacles, such as hard-candy and licorice-string bridges, and skull and other death-related imagery.
The player must survive deadly icicles and candy-cane strips, massive spiked gears and swinging bridges, boxes of TNT, gravity-defying loops and other dangers on each level while trying to perform high jumps, flips and other stunts. They successfully win a level if they manage to make it to the finish line while keeping their time as low as possible. If the player does well and achieves a fast time, they receive stars that they can use to purchase better bikes, including an all-terrain vehicle and a bright red bike driven by a buff, tattooed Santa.
If the player crashes and dies, Moto X3M 4: Winter displays their death in an extremely graphic fashion. The graphics remain onscreen until the player actively selects the restart option. Unlike many similar dirt-bike racing games, the game boots the player back to a save point within the level rather than the start.
