We believe this is one of the first true action sports games available for the iPhone as it immerses you into a full 3D environment, allowing you to ride as either Bucky Lasek or Omar Hassan. You can perform 13 tricks (actually I think there might be 14 now ), and compete in 10 different events all the while unlocking numerous boards, wheels and earning achievements.

Is this game supposed to be good?
Idk how good it's going to be but I'm just dying for a game similar to Tony Hawk or Skate to come out on the Iphone/iPod.

Touchgrind is nice...but that's finger skateboarding...I want some third person skating.

Here's a couple screenshots from the board and wheel select I just took. Some of the boards are based on actual board designs, while others were created by our internal concept artists. The board in the center of the screen is my second favorite in the game.



Here are some screenshots from there.

Lunchbox, have you ever played touchgrind? If you have, how does it compare to this? (Are there any editors in the game?)
