    if they could add mini games to it, like mini levels where you have to kick or flip over obstacles, then i may put it back on my device

    This is exactly what make the difference between a tech demo and a game: levels,goals etc.

    a good game i think.. beter than most other games that are recomented here.
    If you liked these little fingerboards and built yourselft rails and, quaters and ramps its a great game. But still lacking features like an hafpipe etc.
    Sincerely Jay

    Yeah I have to admit it did not take me long to unlock all the boards. They need more boards for higher scores and maybe other unlockables such as trucks or wheels.

    I love the game because my favorite game is Skate on the Xbox 360 and the realism of fingerboarding relates to me.

    I would still love to have a bigger update that included objectives or achievements.

    I didn't say that the game sucks.
    I said "is an overpriced tech demo".
    And when I've finished to unlock al the boards (20 minutes) I didn't wanna play it anymore.

    I highly disagree with the usless tech demo comment... Keep in mind this app, (Can't call it quite a game) is meant to replicate the finger boards from the late 80's to early 90's... It does that better then I could have imagined! The game isn't meant to have real "goals" it's meant to skate around and pull off tricks, tricks I couldn't even dream of doing on the real finger boards. So yes for some I'm sure it's pricey, especially if your looking for a Tony Hawk clone. That's not what this was meant to be and it will never be.... But if you like skating (I do!) and actually get the point of this app, then the price is highly justified IMO.

    Oh, and on the update.... Give me a camera zoom option and then we have something to talk about. ;)

    This is exactly what I mean when I said that it is a tech demo ("useless" was about the update).
    And "overpriced" is right,because you can get a full game for 1$ more (hero of sparta?).
    So a 1,99/2,99$ price tag would be more appropiate for this "finger boards simulator" IMO.

    I agree. It WAS a fun game, and i'm glad i got it, but after the first few boards, you got too used to the controls, it got easy, and you could basically coast through the rest of the game.
    They need different locales, more boards; perhaps a customization option?
    Mini-games/other game modes.
    Also wifi would be cool; compete against others like in the Tony Hawk series (which, btw, just got ridiculous after underground 2)
