(SNAPP Reviews aren’t really a full fledged game review as much as they are just a way for us to give you a quick “heads-up” on whether a game is good or not. It usually means that we haven’t finished the game yet, but have played a good enough chunk to know whether it’s worth your time/money or not.)
Skater…..or actually, “Skater- Let’s Skate” is a casual single-tap platformer by ZPlay. There isn’t much to say as far as a description of the game. You control a little skateboarder across several sets of levels. Holding your finger on the screen makes your skater move. Once you hit a jump, you let off or tap the screen to do backflips. The controls and gameplay have been done before, but it’s done really well in Skater. There’s a high-score endless mode that is procedurally generated and then there’s a World Tour mode where you have to beat 50 levels scattered across the globe. At first glance, the game doesn’t seem too impressive, but once you dig into it, the level design is actually very well done (and can piss you off at the same time). You can also collect coins and unlock different outfits and equipment that have their own unique stats. Skater might not be breaking the mold in the casual game genre, but for what the game does, it does well. (That made more sense in my head.)
Skater is also in this week’s SNAPP Roundup.
