Skateboarding has become a lot more mainstream than it used to be. Because of that, there’s a ton of skateboarding games out there on almost every gaming platform, including Android. The difference between the games is typically difficulty, graphics and being officially licensed so they can use actual professional skateboarders as the characters. This list will show five very different variations of skateboarding games for Android.
Skateboard Monkeys has a monkey skateboarding down the road in top view. The game consists of jumping on top of cars and collecting stars. To control the monkey, tap the screen to jump when the jump bar is full Tilting the screen left or right controls the monkey’s lateral movement.
Android SkateBoard Attack FREE
Android SkateBoard Attack is a pretty simple skateboarding game. To score points, the apples need to be crushed. That made me laugh. There are also a little Android’s along the way that need to be picked up. It’s just a fun and simple 2D scrolling game with simple controls. Ollie over obstacles and try not to wipe-out.
Skate Fighter is a combination of fighting game and skateboarding game. As the little stick figure skater is on the ramps, he needs to fight random civilians in his way. Progressing in the game will bring out new tricks and more awesome levels. The levels are not the typical skateboarding layouts. There are currently bowls and places to rail slide, but there’s also other obstacles not necessarily seen in the skate park.
Sk8er Punk is a pretty simple two button, side scrolling game where the unrealistic skater needs to ollie over obstacles. He has to go about his daily routine like having to school and playing bingo. The characters are not very realistic in comparison to some of the others on the list. Sk8er Punk kinda reminds me of that old Nintendo game California games if the characters were little more Lego-like.
Mike V: Skateboard Party
Mike V: Skateboard Party is the Tony Hawk Pro Skater of Android devices. Just looking at the levels and the graphics, it’s easy to tell there was a lot of work that went into this. There’s ton’s of real professional skateboarders as well as a lot of really cool tricks and levels. The on-screen controls are not horrible to use either.
