Pete, anyone, have an idea where this is soft launched?

Nevermind, I found it on the NZ store. It's free and 50 mb. Side-scrolling skate game. Looks cartoony and decent. I'm downloading it now

Can't wait to read all the "oh no it's just another endless runner" comments.

Oops, so sorry about that - could have sworn I was in the UK AppStore when I spotted this. That and the version being 1.0.1 I thought it had to be a full release. I've corrected the post, thanks for the heads up!

This is actually pretty fun. Upgrades seem cheap so far and the gameplay is simple but still a little more in depth than the average endless runner. I didn't enjoy Transworld that much; even when it was known as just Endless Skater on the PC I didn't gel with it. This will scratch that itch sufficiently!

The visuals remind me of Skyline Skaters and the gameplay is similar to transworld but with easier controls. I'm enjoying it, as you play you unlock more tricks, completing missions increase your multiplier. There are only 27 missions and they seem too easy imo. The prices for upgrades are very well balanced.

This looks cool. There's definitely not enough good skateboarding games on the AppStore. I got bored with Skyline Skaters pretty quick. Transworld so far is my favorite so far. Downloading this one now. Another great find Pete!

EDIT: This is definitely a game to watch out for. It's a lot of fun. Sink or Swim has me beat on just about everything right now, so I'm sure part of the fun is trying to catch up to him. Lol. One thing it needs is like a skate shop or something. Somewhere where you can buy new boards, wheels, trucks, ect. It's definitely worth a download if you have a NZ account though.
