It's been a long time since a game grabbed me like this. Very addictive. Hard but fair. Super frustrating when you can't hit something, but when you finally do, you feel like a god. Basically like Super Meat Boy but for skateboarding. Great fun.

Controls are not as responsive as they should be, especially in a game where timing and precision is key. This can often lead to frustrating gameplay where you feel like the game is difficult (not because of good level design but because of wonky controls). I wouldn't pick this up for full price.

I have always LOVED skateboarding games. I never really got tha hang of it IRL, but I loved playing "Tony Hawk Proskater" on the N64 and mastering the crazy tricks. This is 10x more difficult than THPS yet just as fun. It gives you the best feeling when you nail that crazy combo and SICK flashes on the screen. Great game! Best played with a controller :)

This game is, in the 1st view, awesome. Great universe, great music, great gameplay, all is very cool.

But more and more I go to the end (i am nearby the 100% of the game), the gameplay is very approximative. This is not very accurate.

The buttons for spin is the same to put another type of grind, and if you hit the stick with 2 milliseconds of latency with the trigger, it doesn't count and you loose.

When you begin the game it is cool, because it is easy, but when you make the final stages, the game is too imperfect, and if you win this is only because in this session the game didn't bug.

Too bad, i love this game but it's very frustrating (i miss 4 stars).

I have a condition where I must complete every objective in Skateboarding games. This game exacerbates that condition in a tingly, special way.

Let's go in steps here.
First of all, you probably need a controller to enjoy this game, even the game tells you that when you're opening it without your controller plugged in. I haven't tried playing with my keyboard, but with the controller you use your analog stick to do tricks, so it involves a lot of spinning it around in multiple ways and pressing buttons along to do all the complex stunts you need without really having to think too much about it. Simple to learn, challenging (in a fun way!) to master, as it offers a fulfilling variety of stunts of different levels that you can perform.

Is this another one of those endless running / distance games?
It involves distance, but it isn't endless. The game is comprised of "stages" with a number of goals you can accomplish in each of those. Each stage has a certain distance, to go to the next one, usually all you need to do is finish the stage in one piece. However, you also have the option of completing one or more of those multiple goals that each stage offers. Completing all goals in a level unlocks a new difficulty of that level, with even more challenges. So it's a bit different of the boring endless distance games that have been crowding the game market lately.

Is there a story?
Sorry, not really, but even though I love games with stories, I didn't miss in this case because the game mechanics keep you hooked init. It's actually very easy to completely forget about your goals even, just because you got so excited that you got like 10 perfects in a row and you want to see how far you can go.

What else can you say about this game?
As you're playing, you learn with your mistakes, so even when you fail it doesn't get frustrating, because you get that feeling that in just a few more tries you'll get it right. Some times you'll have to stop doing the stunts you tend to overuse, and pull different strategies and combos to get the objects in the field that you need to collect to complete a challenge. There's also a big variety of stunts you can perform, as well as the techniques you need to develop to get perfect landings, nosegrinds, to get better speed without having to put your foot on the ground to push your skate faster, etc.

Yeah, it's a casual game, but I tell you, it's addictive. (I just spent 2 hours playing it nonstop, and had to stop myself because I had work to do, otherwise I would've kept going - even just writing this review makes me want to go back and play it a bit more!) My only sadness so far? I wish it had more steam achievs, I feel like this game has a lot of cool achievement possibilities, but sadly that wasn't well explored. At least we get cool in-game coals to achieve, though!

[h]OlliOlli[/h]Most difficult trick: Try to quit!

What a throwback to my good old Atari LYNX with California Games. It was almost impossible for me to stop surfing or BMX.
Just one more try ....PLEASE! Only one!
+ Great Controls / Soundtrack
- Highly addictive

Fun for both the casul player or those that wish to get the highest score. The controls might need a little getting use to but once passed that barrier it isn't a problem. The game is also addictive

It's like Tony Hawks in 2D (Good!).
But the controls are very hard (for me) when i play on keyboard (although they warned) it took an awful a lot of time to get along with the controls. They could make it more keyboard friendly...

NEVER for 12.99$. Lets get that straight first. The game is fun, in a phone-game kind of way - but a *good* phone game. This idea has a lot of potential for expansion and overall more depth. I have been playing for about 2 hours now, and will certainly play more with a controller.

Pros:
1. Addicting twich-style 2D Tony Hawkish gameplay
2. Fast restarting, and it is overall fairly easy (no rage quitting for me so far)

Cons:
1. It is sometimes hard to tell what is the background and what is interactable - this really matters since you will lose unfairly due to these issues
2. No customization for the skater or skateboards
3. Grinds and jump styles are SUPER SIMPLE - we need way more room for improvisation ala Tony Hawk
4. Graphics are meh. Might be cool to see a 2.5D version of this

Get it in a bundle for near free - and you will have a fun afternoon.

Don't be led astray by the strange name and the 10-year-old-flashgame exterior. This game is as addicting as it is unforgiving, that is, very.

OlliOlli is a 2d skateboarding game that bares similarities to the gameplay of now defunct developer Black Box skateboarding game "Skate". The basic control scheme is all there, you have your left analog stick quarter circles, full circles and point analog at said direction to pull off a variety of combo skateboarding tricks and grinds. Sure it doesn't have any of the crazy stunts of a Tony Hawk like 720 shove it-to -superman-heelflip-whatever but pulling off chain combo in OlliOlli has just the degree of difficult and requires just the amount of skill that pulling them off will give players an equal amount of gratification when done properly. Players progress in challenge latened levels where either collecting, pulling off x amount of combos, or reaching a certain amount of score will progress you to the next level and ultimately to more difficult challenges.

When it comes to presentation OlliOlli 2d pixelated art style helps sets it apart from the more well known 3D skateboarding franchises by giving the game a indie feel very reminiscent of underground skateboarding back in the day. This feeling is reinforced by the music that not only helps set the tone but remind players the variety and diversity skateboarding is. There's a level of cool brought to this game simply by choosing these aesthetics.

A few issues I had with this game was primarily on the mechanics side where the initial timing for the landing of tricks require players to press a button at the right time to pull it off perfectly. This window to press the button is fairly short and requires you to pay attention to how far your board is to the ground. This can prove an issue because like other 2d endless runners before it if you aren't paying attention to the screen correctly your character may blend into the background which can prove troublesome. Failing to pull off the perfect landing on a trick can be the difference between getting 100k score on a perfectly run level to 20k score on a poorly runned one.

Overall if you ever had an interest in skateboarding games or were interested in this game when it initally came out on Playstation Vita but didn't have the hardware to play it, I think this is a game worth picking up.

Kicks ♥♥♥, is a ton of fun and hard as nails. You'll need a controller and good nerves. It's a mix between endless runners like CANABALT, Super Meat boy and the Tony Hawk franchise. The look is a bit uninspired, with very basic visuals but everything is in some way neatly color-coded so you'll know where to grind and where to jump. The soundtrack ranges between smooth bar jazz and dubstep with drops as big as the one in level 5-5.
The 10,99€ Price tag seems steep and could be under 10, but i can't complain. i played more then 13 hours and come back now and then for more, just because it's a fun, easy and fast way to kill time and to pull of some cool looking combos.
Get it! if not now, then on sale.

EDITED. I enjoyed the Tony Hawk Games, but the core gameplay, which is awesome, is focused on in OlliOlli. That is more what I ment on the ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ aspects.

It is the Tony Hawk Games minus the ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥. Extremely fun and addicting. Nothing like finishing a amazing combo with a graceful and masterful finish. 9.9/10

It's a glorified flash game. There is no customization for either the player or the skateboard, can't do more than flips and grinds, it's hard to distinguish between obstacles and background items, moves (especially grinding) tend to not register correctly and it uses an unoptimized engine that makes the game run badly and crash often.

The overall design makes it obvious how it started as a simple mobile game, so one can only hope the sequel changes that.
