TA Plays First Look: ‘Touchgrind Skate 2’ – Illusion Labs Does It Again

The original Touchgrind ($4.99) was, and still is an amazing fingerboard game. I thought it was too hard for me, and it didn’t help that the locked top-down camera made it really difficult to put together any kind of reasonable line to do tricks on until you really memorized the parks. Touchgrind BMX ($4.99) fixed this in a big way by shifting the camera back, which instantly made a massive difference. Touchgrind Skate 2 is a further evolution of this formula, and really combines the best of both games.

Touchgrind Skate 2 will be available in the New Zealand App Store at 7:00 AM Eastern time, before it slowly filters through the various iTunes region and finally appearing for download in the US App Store at 11:00 PM tonight. Stay tuned for links to both download the game, as well as forum links to discuss it with members of the TouchArcade community.
