Tony Hawk's Mobile Game Has a Rough Launch

It's a rough game, to be fair.

It's been a long while since we last saw a Tony Hawk game. Well fear no longer, the pro skater is back again. The catch: it's a free-to-play mobile game, and it looks rough. Tony Hawk's Skate Jam is available now.

Offering two different modes: Skate Jam and Career, the player operates their own pro skater as they perform tricks to earn points. Skate Jam pits the player against others via a worldwide leaderboard while career issues objectives over five different regions.



Reception to the game has been less than savory, so far. Longtime fans of the Tony Hawk Pro Skater series found that the game doesn't "feel" as fluid or satisfying. All the while, mobile-savvy gamers were discontent with the incentives for microtransactions.

We first heard about the game last December, where it was announced as a pre-registration release. It released on iOS not long after, complete with a veritable smorgasbord of issues. Now the app is on Android devices, along with a few new features. This includes a new control scheme, a much-needed feature.

Tony Hawk's Skate Jam will be free to play, with a number of in-app purchases available via an in-game shop. The shop contains items like coins, boosts, and skins, with purchase options as high as $99.

But hey, if you still want to try it, it's free on the Google Play Store and iOS App Store.
