I quite liked what I played of OlliOlli at E3. There's been a noticeable lack of skateboarding games and, although this obviously isn't on the same level as big-budget simulations like Skate, it's got a lot of heart and the familiar yet hard-to-master mechanics translate nicely to 2D.

If you've been digitally skateboarding for years, it won't take long at all to get into this. Improving your skills to actually reach the end of levels, on the hand... In a score-centric game like this, the real challenge can be knowing when to go all out and knowing when to show restraint.

OlliOlli will release for PlayStation Vita later this year. In addition to the teaser trailer above, Roll7 has kindly sent over a batch of new screenshots. (Is that a Fork Parker cameo I see?)

Skateboarding title OlliOlli hits PS Vita this month

One more try! OlliOlli does 2D skateboarding well

There came a point at which skateboarding games as a whole became too complex for me to handle. Or maybe I just lost "the touch." At any rate, it was a nice confidence boost to check out OlliOlli, a side-scrolling title for ...more
