Played the tutorial (at least you are able to do that before the huge download), and that is exactly what this is.

No gc-leaderboards for survival mode

I'm going to play the other mode and decide if it stays on my iPhone, but I don't think so

Played it for 30. Minutes (The Gameplay Video can be found above, I only did cut out my biggest Fails so it got a bit shorter). The Freemium Part seem to be very fair so far and I more or less earned in the first few couple of Minutes enough to buy myself some new Clothes & Tricks at the Skate Shop also I wouldn`t have to do that since you are earning them too if you just play through the Game.


In less then 30 Minutes I had also almost earned enough to buy me a new Deck/Trucks/Wheels so assuming that it will keep going on that way I`m pretty sure that I would earn enough to buy almost everything on the Store when I get through Santa Monica/Stormdrain/The Docks & South Bank.




The other Skater Like Tony Hawk's son Riley or Homoki/Cole/Gonzalez/Armanto are prized at 50 InGame Dollar which might take some time to collect together but still seem to be in a reasonable Price Region considering that I have so far already collected 16 InGame Dollar by more or less just play through some Parts of the Warehouse and some Parts of Santa Monica without almost no bigger hassle.


The Game itself does have two buyable currencies which both(!) can be earned also by playing just through the game:


About Game Center:


So far the Game seem to pretty solid and I had only one crash and a couple of times where the Game took a longer break and was during that time not responding to my tabs.
