Absolutely the best skateboard game on the app store! So cool and realistic feeling, it's unreal! Very intuitive in nature, tricks are easy to pull off and environments are so incredible, the only way to explain it is to experience it yourself! Highly recommended! Two bigrand thumbs up for this one! Whoa!!

Oh man, reminds me of the old Tony Hawk games from back in the day. Might pick this up, but I'm a bit skeptical that either the controls won't be able to keep up with frantic trick combinations, or that stringing tricks together is too simplified. Hoping to hear some more impressions.

Here's a short new video that demonstrate the flexibility of the controls:

There is also more options, such as using the accelerometer steering mode. You can also adjust the steering (trucks tightness) to suit your riding style at any time. We really tried to make it as customizable as possible.

Glad you guys like it! We have more content on the way and we are also working on a Gamecenter online multiplayer integration. The Android version should launch next week.

This looks good! Definitely looks like one of the (if not the) best skateboarding games on iOS, though admittedly that genre is not very big on iOS. I think I might pick this up later. One question though: is it retina-enabled?

I don't want a signature.

Of course!
The game is using full Native resolution on retina display and also on iPads.
We didn't spare anything here! on top of that, it's a universal version for all your iOS devices. So no need to buy a separate iPad version... who likes to buy the same game twice right? not me!

Any chance online multiplayer will be added in the future? And I mean is it something your going to do 100% chance, not that it depends on how sales go kinda question.
(I've bought to many games that developers say" yeah online multiplayer will be added") and it never gets added because they didn't sell well. or they decided to work on another project.)
I can't say I don't appreciate the hard work already put into this game as even your recently added 30 second video really shows your taking into consideration people all don't have the same size fingers and I thank you for adding local wifi and bluetooth MP.
But I'm big on purchasing games that allow me to play with more people when there just isn't anyone around me to play with.

When to use A or An in a sentence.
Use A if the next word begins with a consonant sound.
Use An if the next word begins with a vowel sound.
