What Touch Arcade say about it:


"If you're at all in to finger boarding, or liked the iPhone version of the game, you need Touchgrind HD for your iPad. The extra screen real estate of the iPad really improves gameplay, as you can see so much more and can actually plan out lines to skate instead of just bumping along looking for ramps and rails. The two player mode is super cool, and the amount of customization in the game between different skateboards rocks. Something to keep in mind is that this game controls like you're using an actual finger board just like the original, so there can be a somewhat sizable learning curve as you learn how to handle your board."

We didn't just upscale the game and submit it. The new stuff in this version is local multiplayer and the much awaited (and needed) ability to see more of your surroundings, along with completely redesigned UI and nicer graphics, which I hope justify the slightly bigger price tag (I know some of you guys will be complaining about the price). And yes, it has full orientation support too, which means the menus adapt to the way you hold the device (portrait, upside down, landscape etc)!

This is truly the way Touchgrind was meant to be played, and this is one of the few games that fully takes advantage of the iPad.
