You know what's strange? I can't find this game with search option on the AppStore, but going through the link you provided works just fine. Is it because the game's new or might there be any other issue?

I'm really liking this game. Sure, it's a lot like CR, but I love skateboarding games. I guess it's the whole nastalgia thing since I skated back in the day, but still, its a lot of fun. You can buy new boards, tricks, characters. One thing I noticed is that the whole theme and music changes to match every character, so it's almost like a (little) different game with ever character you get. I will say that it's a little on the slim side for gaining currency, but it's not really bad. Your just going to have to "grind" a lot (get it? A skateboarding pun!) and get you rewards when they come in a la Crossy Road, watch vids, or do away with all that and buy an IAP. I still say it's worth a download. Expecially if you dig games like CR.

I really dislike is the way that some elements of the UI are shamelessly copied from Crossy Road, for example the character selection screen and the jackpot machine to name a couple.

That said it's not necessarily a bad game. Maybe it's me but I find the isometric view really affects my accuracy when trying to avoid objects, as it's difficult to guess accurately if you're in the right lane.

I agree. It smacks of desperation. Stop being a copycat and get an original idea. Like have it be a slot machine or something. Expand on the original idea a little bit.
