Like most boarding games, the developers have gone for a mix between balance and tricks. To perform the tricks you have to input a series of directions using the stick or pad. As you play further you get the chance to buy some more flashy tricks and the direction inputs get quite a bit more complicated. In fact, it took my eyes a while to adjust to the arrows as even though they are a reasonable size, for some reason my brain was interpreting them the wrong way."
