One more try! OlliOlli does 2D skateboarding well


Another interesting Vita indie

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 PlayStation Vita.

Hammering away on the "X" button propels your skater forward, while flicking the left thumbstick launches you into the air. The stick is also used for grinding, which had that sort of timing system that causes you to foolishly risk everything and then wipe out. Just one more turn, I swear.

This is one of those games that might not look like much at first. Once you get a Vita in hand, however, you'll have a hard time putting it down. Playing OlliOlli well -- getting into the zone -- was immensely satisfying. What a pleasant little surprise this turned out to be.
