Fans of skateboarding titles possess a new one to sink their time into called Hoodrip Skateboarding. Produced by ArcticPlay Studios, Hoodrip Skateboarding features plenty of real world branded gear and decks that players can wear and employ while trying to pull of all the tricks that you can.
This game takes place in Brooklyn at 30 from the city’s more famous skateboarding spots, with the street art you can handle to go along with it, including art by Ruben Sanchez. As a whole there are 30 different tricks that players can master, and all of those can be chained together to form endless manual, grind, and trick combos. Before heading out in to the streets, players can customize their character with various clothing and their boards with decks, grips, wheels and trucks.
There are a couple of different game modes to experience through. You have the Story mode, which just goes through the game’s ‘storyline’ if you will. Then there’s the Challenges, which is where players can attempt to complete various challenges to earn in-game cash and ‘street cred’ from the game’s community. Interestingly, players can also earn real life items which are featured in the game in this mode as well.
Another interesting feature you do not see often in these types of games is the fact that skaters can join or form crews. Players can then choose to compete either in their crew or in sponsored challenges. Challenges also provide an interesting structure for them when it comes to how winners are selected.
Not every challenge is skill-based, as winners are chosen at random along with other times, based upon a number of performance requirements for example points earned, speed, longest manual, donuts collected, time, etc., thus allowing all players the chance to compete and win no matter their particular skateboarding prowess – or lack thereof. – ArcticPlay Studios
