Boardtastic Skateboarding 2 Review: Tricks and Treats for Skateboard Aficionados (Video)
If you’re looking for a free Android game intended for skateboarding buffs, then Boardtastic Skateboarding 2 is as good as it gets. It has all the decks you need and then some, customizations galore and even trendy clothes.
The game is totally free, it uses 3D graphics and only requires you to swipe on the screen to rotate the skater to a certain number of degrees and perform certain tricks. There’s also a global multiplayer feature, that doesn’t allow real time head to head confrontation, instead requiring you to beat a certain player’s score.
There’s a nifty 3D engine in the title, a freestyle mode, a ladder mode and tournaments that will unlock more venues in places like LA and other urban areas in USA. There are 15 skate decks to mess with, gears and clothing to adapt to your style and money to be earned with each challenge. You will even lose health if a trick goes bad and then comes the nurse to heal you. New tricks can unlocked, with stuff like Indy, Nosegrab, Kickflip being available, with upgrades included.
The game gets from us a 9.7 out of 10 and it’s up for download here.
