Over the Top Skating Game ‘Skateboard Party 3 ft. Greg Lutzka ‘coming next Thursday – TouchArcade
Ratrod Studio has a long history of providing extreme sports activities on mobile devices. They cover the snowboard with their Snowboard festival series, drift races with their Drift mania series, and skateboarding with their Skateboard party series. Oh, and let’s not forget the hockey fights with their Hockey fight games too. Well, it’s been over 2 years since their last skate release, but that’s about to change with the release of 3ft Skateboard Party. Greg Lutzka next Thursday.
The Skateboard party the games are quite comparable to Tony Hawk’s professional skater games from yesteryear in that they are a bit of a stretch but mostly reality-based and also heavily built around the chain of combos to score. As also the Tony hawk games, the Skateboard party games have gotten more and more excessive with each new release, which you can see in the trailer for Skateboard Party 3 where at one point, the video game Greg Lutzka grinds the back of a Stegosaurus.
Don’t get me wrong, I’m not complaining! I sometimes like a little too fantastic stuff in my skateboard games. And with the surprisingly playable iOS port of Tony Hawk Professional Skater 2 long since retired from the App Store and Tony Hawk’s various new mobile projects, all apparently in limbo, there aren’t many options for those looking for a similar experience on mobile. I enjoyed the previous ones Skateboard party games, but the skater’s controls and movements have always felt stiff and a little offbeat to me. Skateboard game 2 was a big improvement over the first, however, and hopefully the third installment will be even better.
We won’t have long to wait to find out because 3ft Skateboard Party. Greg Lutzka arrives on iOS next week for $ 1.99 and on Google Play, Amazing, and the Windows Store a week later on June 2. In the meantime, check out the forum thread to talk about this one.
