9.5/10 – Destructoid

At first blush, this may seem similar to titles from Armor Games, but this is much, much deeper and skill-oriented. Timing, variation, and eye-hand coordination are all a factor, particularly if you want to crush the built-in leaderboards. Great effort here and infinitely replayable.

At first I thought this was going to be a game I wouldn't enjoy and I sort of maintained that mindset when I started playing but the more you play, the more the game feels fluid to you. I've slowly figured out how to get better combos and scores although I still don't think I'll be reaching the top of any of the leader-boards anytime soon (P.S Simon cheats).

I'd highly recommend using a controller for the game. After starting with keyboard controls and then migrating to my Xbox 360 controller, you'll see what I mean.

With changing daily levels and leader-boards, I think many people will come back every day to play the game. The music is also exceptionally awesome (although there is one track I don't really like but you can flick through all the tunes).

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.

Played a lot on the Vita, but bought again to play on big screen (while waiting for the PS4 version!)

Controls might be a bit difficult at the beginning, specially if coming from Tony Hawk, but once learned they are perfect, and are deep enough to keep improving and getting better scores. This learning curve might also be tough for some players, because it involves practicing many combos (flick movement on the left stick) and learning which of them score bigger than others. But this is really the key to high scores, know what to do, with enough variety and safety (and just doing ollies all along a level is not half the fun)

On the downside, the Vita sticks are perfect for this game, small and short so flicks are super fast todo. While on the Xbox360 controller, the physical movement is longer (so slower to perform), and in my case as it is wireless it adds some lag, so have to press buttons earlier than on the Vita.

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.

Great game, been playing on Vita for weeks now, happily paid again to get it on steam and its just as good.

Helps fill the void left by the death of the Tony Hawk series, and I hope the same team can make a more robust sequel sometime down the road.

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 :)

OlliOlli is a great little game! It offers tight but hard gameplay, it's retro-inspired pixel-art graphics go along very nicely with some fantastic music!

You're not going to get hundreds of hours out of this game, but if you are looking for a fun casual game to play when you are bored, i would definitely recommend OlliOlli

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!

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

This is really just a first impressions quickie review. First of all this is a smooth and delightful little game. The music is great and the controls are solid. (Definitely recommend a controller though.) There's plenty of levels, a lot of replay value due to different challenges on every level that are not easy to complete. I would still say a 5€ price tag would be more appropriate, but definitely no wasted pennies here, even for full price!

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).

Borrows a bit from THPS and a bit from SKATE, but still is able to form a unique skateboarding gameplay experience. Timing-based scoring system (Perfect! Sick! Sloppy! Sketchy!) makes for a solid "perfectionist" type of challenge, yet one not exactly punishing at early levels. Animations are pretty choppy and the character art (while often charming, such as the bails) is unrefined and downright ugly at times. Kickflips and heelflips for example, are visually indistinguishable, and for a 2D game, good sprite work and animation seems like a pretty important thing. Doesn't really have that skateboarding "feel," but a solid game nonetheless.

This is an incredible game. It's extremely enjoyable whether you enjoy skateboarding in games/real life or not. Despite it having a Trials (HD, Evelolution or Fusion) type of gameplay, and some could even compare it to Bit Trip Runner, it sure doesn't have the frustration factor like those games do. I couldn't recommend it more.

This is not Tony Hawk Pro Skater, and I'm happy it's not (well, kinda). Coming from a background in THPS games, I kind of expected this to follow in the same path, but by changing the way in which you control your skater and putting a greater influence on perfect rail tricks and landings (rather than balance), a whole new fun experience has been created. To start, it can take many attempts just to make it to the end of each level. Then once you do, you need to make the scores required along with other little challanges.

I've logged a few hours in the game and have gotten the hang of it, for the most part. I'm still no where as good as I need/want to be and that will keep me coming back for more.

Oh, and the daily grind challenge where you only get one chance.....EVIL!! (but fun)

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!
