How To Skateboard On Your iPhone

December 31, 2008 by Ryan Ray 

Here comes another game review straight from me to you, consider it a late Christmas gift as I try and round out the stuff we cover on this website a little more evenly. Now that YouTube supports HD video I’m making one to show you how awesome this app is, and really when I say awesome I mean it. This is one of the greatest apps I’ve come across so far since the launch of the app store. Admittingly, I don’t do near enough browsing through it to really find those gems, but thanks to a friend of mine I came across this app. As a sidenote, if you ever have a great app you want to tell me about DO IT! This app has already provided me with hours of entertainment, and even though it is slightly hard to master at first it isn’t frustrating to play. It goes by the name TouchGrind.

You may be wondering right now, “Why is it named TouchGrind?” Well it could be a rollerblading game, or it could be a biking game, what about even a power tool game? Those are all close but no cigar. Do you remember perhaps about 8 or more years ago these things called “Tech Decks?”  They were these miniature skateboards that you could pretend to skate on by using your fingers. I know I was probably in 6th or 7th grade when these became very popular, and I had a good collection of probably 8 of these Tech Decks hiding in my desk. At the time we didn’t have the accessories that came out later for Tech Decks, like the parks and stuff. We just used our books or chairs for our skateparks, hah. 

Needless to say, when I first saw this game that was the first thing that came to mind was Tech Decks. I’m a skateboarder myself and love it when I’m able to get out and skate on a beautiful day. I used to get out every single day and skate, but once again responsibility strikes. I get cooped up inside doing work or trying to get good grades in school. Thankfully though TouchGrind let’s me pretend im outside skateboarding, and honestly I’m better in TouchGrind than I am in real life haha.

TouchGrind is very addicting to play. As soon as I went through the tutorials and learned the controls, which is very important, I couldn’t put it down. Funny thing is, even in the middle of typing this up I stopped and played a little bit. Just goes to show, it really is addicting. The graphics in the game are very good and look incredibly real. One of the things they boast about the game is it’s physics engine and I must say it has a good one. The board reacts to your flicks and gravity as if it were a real board. This is definitely what makes the game fun and challenging.

The game’s main menu is reminiscence of any good video game. The choices are similar to any game of this nature, mainly Tony Hawks series of video games. You have a wheel that has options on it as you can see in the picture below. You must rotate the wheel with your finger to choose other options. To the right of it is a description of the current option which helps explain what you are doing the first few times you are in the game. As a beginner I would choose the warm up option first until you get the hang of the game. Then after that move to the jam session. Once you are ready to unlock boards try your luck in a competition and see how high a score you can get. My skill has peaked so far at about 160,000. I’m getting better though because I want to unlock the boards that are at 1,000,000 points. How people get these scores, I have NO IDEA!

Touch Grind On The iPhone

Like I said the gameplay is VERY fun, and there isn’t any justice I can do to it unless you get the game yourself and play it. I did try to capture it in a video so do check it out below. If you’ve played this game let me know what your opinion is on it. Now watch the video. Click through to watch it in HD on YouTube.

    Hey there! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any trouble with hackers?
    My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing several weeks of hard
    work due to no data backup. Do you have any solutions to protect against hackers?
