App description: From Opedo Software, comes the most technically advanced skateboarding simulation ever, First Try Fridays, a title exclusively developed for the iPhone, iPod touch and iPad.

SIMPLE CONTROLS

Extremely intuitive, with using only two fingers, virtually every skateboarding trick can be performed, for a total of 14430 different combinations of flips and grinds.

GRAPHICS

Unprecedented graphics, besting even console games. It is the only iPhone game with full real time shadows, global illumination with physically accurate sky and Sun HDR lighting models, and the only game in existence with reflections on all windows. It pushes the iPhone graphics hardware to the limits.

LEVEL DESIGN

Scenes and objects have been measured and photographed from real life, to a 3 mm resolution, resulting in super high polygon counts. So every sidewalk section, tile, bolt, chamfer, has been meticulously drawn out.

PHYSICS

The only game in the world to have 15 micron accurate per polygon continuous collision detection, allowing the skateboard to react realistically with arbitrarily complex worlds.

SOUND

The sound engine is a physically plausible system that, coupled with the accurate physics, produces uncanny results. Over 75 recorded samples were used for the skateboard sound simulation alone.

VIDEO EXPORT

Save your best tricks to a video, mixed with music, and share them with the world.

Just got it two days ago and it's darn close to actual skateboarding.
Levels are quite interesting.
Add me on gamecenter if you got it, too.

It's really hard to master, but then again quite satisfying when you pull off tricks. The leveldesign is very real live, which is a plus for me, too.

Anyone have a video or something so I can get a feel for how this plays? Kind of been on a skating game kick lately and this looks interesting.

My band just released an album! iTunes / Facebook
