Looks like another ripoff of a flash game
see Tiny Hawk by Pekuja.

(edit: it doesn't look like they've directly ripped the gfx at least, but still.. shame. even the instructions are almost word for word taken from Tiny Hawk, from what I can see..)

Agreed,

I am starting to get sick of the many imitations of games on the app store. What has happened to people coming up with there own kind of game?

I can think of tons of game ideas in my head right now that are original, Why do people have to copy games when there is more chance of making a profit from coming up with there own game idea?

I got it as soon as I saw the gfx and the genre. Turns out, it's not like your typical platformer. The skater just keeps moving, and you control his direction and when he jumps; the objective being to collect all of the coin-like-things on the screen in the least amount of time. I thought it would be something like LOE so in that sense, was kind of disappointed. The controls are kind of unresponsive at some points. The only plus I'd see here are the graphics and 30 levels; if you can master the controls, believe me it's difficult, then this could be a fun game for you.

For me anyways, it's just another mehh. Feel like I've wasted some money...

Waiting for: Airborne Troopers, Mini Motor Racing. Minisquadron 2, Tweetland, Car Jack Streets 2, Drive Forever, Turf Geography Club, Junk Jack!!

Caution advised though buddy. I bought this within a second if seeing the icon and screenshots, but I'm gutted to say I'm a tad disappointed. I'm a massive 8-bit fan and for me to be underwhelmed speaks volumes.

I've abstained from deleting though in the hope it grows on me.

You got some nerve to post stuff like this. What if the developers sees your comments? If you don't like it, atleast be nice about telling them about the game.
