Absolutely Fantastic.

If you're a fan of skating games or sidescrolling games like canabalt, then you should check this game out. The two control methods are nice, the animation is fluid, and the gameplay is addictive. If you haven't seen the video, basically gameplay involves skating through various areas, pulling off tricks and picking up tokens for points. There is plenty of challenge in the game, so those 24 levels should keep you occupied for a while.

Definitely one not to pass up.

Pretty cool game. Controls are simple and the game has a nice old school feel to it. I do wish that the crashes looked better, maybe some sort of ragdoll effect.

Great game. I'm surprised at how fluid the little guy is when skating. His backside smiths are sick.

this game is SICK......my favorite part is the two controls....a random trick button for beginners, and a joystick for advanced players. SO far this game has been pretty polished, and it is a canabalt like game. I think there should also be an easy mode, where you have unlimited lives, but thats just my take. there should also be a level select screen so you can replay your favorite levels without having to start all over.

Seriously. This game is awesome. If you're a fan of Canabalt type games or skating games in general, give this a look. Controls are great, really fluid, very fun to play and go for higher scores. Well worth the price and deserves to be getting a lot more attention.

A few more suggestions: Randomly generated level mode, and how about unlockables like hats (not to steal hook champs thunder). I agree with glover's suggestions too, a level select would be awesome, as would an infinite life mode (without keeping high scores).
