I spent a few weeks with Skyline Skaters and I believe that it will be a big success. It won't get much love on TA but many people will love this game because it's perfect to pick up and play.
Long story short. Skyline Skaters is freemium, you earn coins at a very good rate. The premium currency is rare. The missions force you to constantly spent coins to upgrade your deck. There are facebook pop-ups and revives. The game has more negative than positive aspects. But it's highly addictive, the controls are simple, it looks great (a bit like subway surfers) and there are many things to upgrade in the shop.

Good summary and it is indeed a very fun game.
I could live with the freemium part if only they would add a leaderboard for a hardcore mode without continues.

Woh... Im really enjoying the gameplay but... I guess SoS already summed it up pretty well, and i definitely agree the freemiumness is what's keeping this from being totally enjoyable.

Has anyone received their Facebook bonus? I unlocked the new character, but no superbox or bux.

I didn't unlock a character. I unlocked a FB board and I've been getting daily bux.

Have you tried selecting the Mia character now that you have logged in?
