Pixels for Breakfast writes: It’s hard to believe there was a time when skateboarding games were the king of the world. We had the score attack driven Tony Hawk: Pro Skater series, a landmark franchise that allowed those of us who could barely kickflip to pull off the most ludicrious combos ever conceived. A few years later EA released Skate, which challenged the arcade world of Tony Hawk with realisitc environments and tight controls that provided a more simulation approach. Iteration after iteration was released, until eventually the whole genre died out due to over saturation.
U.K studio Roll7 obviously didn’t get the memo, because today they unleashed OlliOlli onto the PS Vita. Equal parts Tony Hawk and Skate, with just a dash of Super Meat Boy thrown into the mix, and you have one of the most addictive score attack games I’ve played in years.
