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 :)

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!

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.

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.

I'm enjoying this a lot. There was a lot of Tony Hawk Pro Skater muscle memory to unlearn though. You basically do everything with the left analog stick and use the A button on the xbox controller to push/land.

I did have some trouble landing perfect grinds. I'm not sure if it's possible to land a grind too late, that might be the cause of it. EDIT: I was using a wireless controller which was the cause for that.

I can pull off perfect grinds pretty consistently now. The weird thing is that you can get perfect grinds by grinding at the last possible moment but that doesn't seem to be the case for landing on the ground, I have to press a bit earlier for that.

Hard, frustrating, painful, challenging, skill full, rewarding, amazing.

Finally a side scroller skateboard game done right, the list of failed attempts on this genre is way too big to mention, they either fail on unnatural gameplay or they are way too simplistic, with OlliOlli you will get it all done the right, controls are very snappy, although it will make you master it with a balanced learning curve, the sound fx is spot on, and it has hours of gameplay and replay value.

If you you are into skateboard games as well as skill based games such as “Super Meat Boy” or “Bit Trip Runner” this is a must try.

Simple game, lots of replay value to 100% the game.

The controls are miserable. They feel a bit like how you'd expect mobile touch controls to feel ported sloppily to a gamepad. Given that there's not much more to the game than said controls - it's a really stripped down skater - there's not much to recommend here. The music is nice?

Do you like games that are a million times more frustrating then fun? Then you'll love this game. If you don't have a controller (like me), this game is basically hell.

It would be a good flash game to waste 10 minutes on it between two websites, but as a 10€ game? Meh.
Wait for a sale or a game bundle.

Of course I shouldn't have expected this game to be as deep as the Skate series, but as that's what it tries to emulate in 2D form by having to rotate the analogue stick to do flip tricks, it's hard not to compare them. First of all, the trick list seems incomplete, a lot of the movement of the left stick just end up doing ollies, and having to let the stick go back to neutral position feels like a really unnecessary step. Secondly, the most important thing to keep a run going is perfect landings, and all my video gaming instincts lead me to try hitting the landing button at the point of impact with the ground. However, it seems you have to hit the button quite a bit of time BEFORE you land, and HOLD IT until the point of landing. This just feels really unintuitive and breaks the flow of play.


I don't understand how anyone can get several hours out of this. I have played at least two more in-depth and enjoyable skateboarding games that were made in Flash. I'm not that miffed, as I got it from the Humble Bundle, but if I had spent full price on this game I would be very disappointed.

A difficult, but very satisfying game with a buttload of tricks and levels. Don't miss this one out if you like skateboarding!
(I can land a Pop shove-it perfectly anytime in real life, but not in this game...)

DO NOT BUY.

If you like skateboarding games at all, I can't recommend OlliOlli. Too many levels feature insta-death obstacles almost right at the start of the stage, which is as much fun as being thrown three live grenades and being asked to judge which one weighs the least.

As the game goes on, more and more levels become reliant on grinding your whole way through, which quickly becomes tiresome and very same-y. Said same levels often REQUIRE that you're playing perfectly, otherwise you will move too slow and not be able to make a gap. The second level of the last world requires dozens of perfect grinds. If you fail almost any of them, you have to restart.

I'm assuming, in part, that the reason why there is so much grinding is because you are unable to Manual between tricks, If the game was more flatland/street scape then the opportunities for combos would be greatly lessened. But you know what else stops your combo meter? Lamely falling into a gigantic pit full of ♥♥♥♥ing spikes. Nothing de-hypes you quite like pulling off fiften perfect grinds in a row to look like a chump because you only landed the Salad Grind on top of the neon dinosaur, but you didn't land it "Perfect", so now you're dead.

What I desperately want in this game is a level where I can ♥♥♥♥ around and practice without flying into hells ♥♥♥♥ing teeth every twenty seconds. Actually, what I want is a refund.
