My husband and I have played plenty of video games with the kids and we are always looking for good clean games without violence.

About the Ice Age: Continental Drift - Arctic GamesIce Age: Continental Drift - Arctic Games is the video game extension of the upcoming fourth installment of the Ice Age franchise, Ice Age: Continental Drift, where gamers of all ages can use teamwork or go head-to-head as Manny, Sid, Diego and their furry friends in motion controlled competition that’s fun for the whole family!

Having trouble deciding on how to split the treasure evenly, they collectively decide to settle the problem through a series of off-the-wall sporting events including ski jumping, ice smashing, and glacial hopping. Ultimately, the winner of the most events will be entitled to the prize. As the prehistoric games begin, players must side with Manny and the herd, or the seafaring pirates to determine the fate of the riches.
