    TouchGrind is pretty much a flashy tech demo. Not a whole lot of gametime there.

    It's cool to show off to friends, but that's about it.

    Wrong choice,actually is just a damned demo.
    Yes the video are cool,the fisic also,but you can do only 4 tricks,you can only skate in one park,there are no achievements,nothing to do except the same damned trick.
    And you can unlock al the board in about 15 minutes.

    Regarding BadSantas post:

    That is a major overstatement actually. If you really want me to, i could name all of the tricks possible, theres around 50. And the physics are amazing, very lifelike. The parks are, indeed, few, but an online park editor is already being added into one of the next updates, as well as countless other features. This includes board editors, and more unlockable boards as well. The boards take a little over 15mins to unlock btw, as there is a decent learning curve, even after learning the different finger movements.

    If you repeat a trick (i'am not sure because the game dont show the name of the tricks,maybe the one called "impossible that is very easy to do despite is name) you get a multiplier and in 15 minutes unlock all the boards.
    Then,the park"s" is not right,the park"s" is ONE.
    Please name me some tricks that arent a combination of the same damned 4/5 basic tricks/grind.
    So,IF and WHEN they add more parks,some achievements,more tricks and more boards I'll be happy to change my opinion.
    So far has been my worst purchase.

    ps.yes the physics are great,and the controls are cool.

    Well, first off, theres one training park, a jam session park, and a competition park. Second, the point is to combinde diffrent tricks, but i wasnt even talking about grinds when i thought about those 50. But some basic, non combinded tricks- Kickflip, Heelflip, Shove it, Ollie, Nollie, Impossible, Boardslide, Darkslide, Crook, 50-50, Noseslide, Tailslide, 5-0, and others. Basiacally, any trick you can do in real life can be done. Excluding, of course, tricks involving the use of wour hands (Handplants, Sal flip, ect). And it is guarenteed that many more updates will improve the game even further. Also, the scoring system is actually made so that you have to vary your tricks to get maximim points, just as an fyi.

    Ok,you can do various tricks,that was my mistake.Or not? Because I don't know the skateboard tricks and the game don't display any name.
    And the tutorial show only some basic tricks.
    I've to learn to skate first and then I'll can enjoy the game. LOL
    3 parks?Are you kidding?
    The training park is just an empty park with 3 obstacle.
    The jam and the competion park are the same,the SAME park,if there is a difference I can not see it.
    The other points of my description is still valid.
    I suppose you're a developer right?

    There's no way that's the developer of Touch Arcade. If it was, you'd at least see it in his signature. The developers of that game have made SO much money on their other game, "Labrynth." I'm pretty sure they don't have time to be posting on Touch Arcade forums, haha.

    Back on topic, Touchgrind is way more fun than I was expecting. If you can skateboard in real life, you'll be surprised at how accurate the tricks are. I love the game :) I highly recommend it before the price goes up (unless it already has).

    Get amateur surgeon. I own both, and though touchgrind is nice, amateur surgeon is def better for a trip setting. It's a sit down and play game with levels and goals. Touchgrind takes too long to master for a trip imho.

    I know they're nice. They listen to feedback and they're great.

    I think I may have confused you, because I was just letting BadSanta know that guy isn't the developer of TouchGrind. I also said they were too busy. They have some big games, so I can't imagine them having time in the day to post on the TA about their games.

    I hope that clears things up.

    Again, I highly recommend TouchGrind. It's fantastic

    I don't have either of them, but I used to love tech decks so I would have to go with touchgrind. I played it on my friends ipod and it's great fun.

    Dev have a private life,and this is the best forum of iphone/touch gaming.
    His answer and his diplomacy really make me think that he's a dev of ILabs.
    Maybe I only need to go to bed :)
