Stick Skater is a barebones skating game. Its stick man skater grinds on rails and hops over obstacles like lights, sand, staircases and trash cans. In its basic control set-up there are two control options: "Basic Tricks Mode" and "Advanced Tricks Mode". Basic Tricks Mode has two buttons: "Push" to move forward and "Trick" to jump and do tricks. In the advanced mode, "Trick" is switched out with a virtual joystick "Swipe". The core game mechanic is timing and reacting to obstacles".
