Skateboard Party 2 is a great simulator for Windows Phone in which you will be able to ride a skateboard performing all sorts of tricks. If you do not bother with choosing a character, as well as accessories and spare parts for a skateboard, then almost immediately after the start of the game you will find yourself on a fairly large area.
ControllingOn the left side of the screen, you will see a multi-positional joystick with which you can move in different directions and stop. In the lower right corner of the screen there are a few virtual buttons responsible for jumps and other tricks. You can use these buttons both individually and combining with each other, depending on where you are going to ride and what obstacles in front of you are.
You can choose any riding style you want, but it is advisable to look around to use the nearby railings, benches, ramps and other elements to perform various tricks. Of course, on-site you will come across a variety of obstacles owing to which you may not just fall, but break to bleeding.
If you look around carefully, you will see that the first site is located in some kind of a trench the edges of which are well suited for beautiful and spectacular stunts. After examining the site, you will find a small passage to a secondary zone where there is something like an abandoned pool with one edge destroyed. Having moved down there (carefully, not to fall), you can have a great time riding from one end to another and after performing tricks in the air after acceleration.
Settings and achievementsHaving ridden a bit, you can return to the main menu and choose a suitable male or female character of eight contenders. When you earn the necessary amount of money and experience, you will be able to return to this section of the game and dress up the mentee changing his or her clothes and shoes. The next menu allows you to change the board, as well as other its elements. Then you will find yourself in a window of choosing locations. Initially, only one area is available for you, but having achieved some success, you will gain access to five more unique locations scattered in different corners of the world.
ResumeThe game has remarkable three-dimensional graphics, easy controlling and realistic physics. The sound is quite good too and goes well with the gameplay. Unfortunately, the game can be downloaded only after the payment, without the possibility of free testing, but even in the Windows Phone Store users speak about the game exceptionally well, so fans of extreme sports can be advised to play this game without any doubt.
