Take the concept of the Tony Hawk's Pro Skater franchise, remix it from the ground up to be more mobile-friendly, and you get Tony Hawk's Skate Jam, the first mobile game to be approved by The Birdman himself. The game features more than passable graphics, large worlds to skate in, and a wide range of modes and extras to stave off boredom. Fans who are used to the usual tight, demanding physics and brutality of console Tony Hawk entries will be in for a shock. Skate Jam features a much more newbie-friendly system with floatier physics that offer a lot of correction for player error, and much more opportunity to fix any screw-ups you've made. The game is available for free right now in the Play Store. Background: From the Playstation and Nintendo 64 days onward, Tony Hawk's Pro Skater has been known for tight controls, realistic physics, hardcore punk and rap soundtracks that matched the skate culture of the time, and levels that concentrated literally millions of possibilities … [Read more...] about Tony Hawk’s Skate Jam Is A Mobile-First Reimagining
Pro Skater 5's lackluster quality wasn't a huge surprise, however. Tony Hawk-branded video games have been inconsistent since 2007's Proving Ground, the last title developed by series pioneer Neversoft Entertainment. Tony Hawk: Ride and Shred, which revolved around a physical skateboard peripheral, were a gimmicky mess. Pro Skater HD, an updated mash-up of the first two games (Pro Skater 3 content was added later as DLC) was criticized by fans for its lean level selection and slightly-off controls."I'm learning as I go," Hawk told Engadget on the phone. "So obviously I embrace those failures as learning processes. We were up against a deadline and lack of resources with those games, so I understood those challenges and I had to accept them, ultimately."Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 5 was a low point for the series.Activision, the owner of the Pro Skater license, hired a studio called Robomodo to make Ride, Shred, Pro Skater HD and Pro Skater 5. Hawk, unsurprisingly, has mixed feelings about … [Read more...] about Tony Hawk is still learning how to make video games
Tony Hawk is back with a new video game, and it’s his first done without the involvement of longtime partner Activision. Built from the ground up for mobile devices, Tony Hawk’s Skate Jam is a free-to-play skating game that drops you into a skate park to try your hand at some of the sport’s most famous tricks. Hawk himself had a major role in designing the game, working with publisher Maple Media to ensure that it has the iconic tricks and style we’ve come to associate with skating since it exploded in popularity during the late 20th century. Digital Trends had the chance to interview Hawk to ask him about the project and how it compares to his past video games, and the Birdman clearly sees games like Skate Jam as the future. “I saw what [Maple Media] has developed, and the engine they were doing, and realized that with my expertise and my experience, we could make something that was more akin to the types of games that people know me for,” Hawk told … [Read more...] about We talked to Tony Hawk about his latest game, ‘Tony Hawk’s Skate Jam’
The launch date of the PlayStation Classic is fast approaching, perfectly timed for the holiday season, when it will ostensibly drown us in wistful memories of gaming past. Nostalgia is a powerful resource, after all – as shown by the sellout success of Nintendo’s NES Classic and SNES Classic mini-consoles.But look a little closer at Sony’s offering, and it looks like a fudge job, compiled well after Sony decided to jump on the nostalgia bandwagon. It’s as if Sony was dead set on offering something in the mini-console market before actually checking whether it had anything to offer – which, as it turns out, is not all that much.PlayStation Classic review: limited, but lovingly crafted hardwareGetting games to marketBefore we pick out more specific examples from the PlayStation Classic line-up, it’s worth a general comparison via our sister site, GamesRadar. Cross-referencing the PS1 Classic’s 20 games with GR’s list of the 25 best PS1 … [Read more...] about How did Sony get the PlayStation Classic so terribly wrong?
