Skate King : A finger skateboarding game for the iPhone and iPad - sharptoothstudios - Sep 7, 2012 10:06 AM

Skate King is a finger skateboarding game for the iPad and iPhone. The player will control a finger board (one of those old school finger skateboards that all the cool kids played with at school). Players will be able to choose their skateboard deck and whatever pre-made skate park they want to ride in. It will be a top down view so the player can focus on busting out all the tricks they can (you will be looking at the skate board deck and a few feet around the board and all times). We have created quite a few ramps and rails for the player to ride, as well as a half pipe, quarter pipe and swimming pools to ride in.

Since the game is on iPad and iPhone, players will be able to maneuver the board like if it were a real skateboard, and they will be able to perform dozens of different flips and grinds on the ramps and rails. Different finger swipes and taps on the board will rotate and flip the board allowing for extreme trick variety. Players will get a score that will let them unlock more decks, trucks, and wheels to customize their board.

Players can link multiple tricks together by using ramps and rails to perform long strings of tricks for a huge score



We currently have licensing agreements with 6 skateboard companies to use their logos (Etnies, Etnies Plus, Emerica, ES Footware, Thirtytwo, and Altamont) and we are in negotiations with several other big skate companies for their logos as well as some of their skate decks (however some of them want a beta version of the game to play before they will sign on) But all of them are very interested in the game.

We will be creating a skate park editor as well so a player can make their own park with all the available ramps and rails in the game. They will be able to play their skateparks as well as post them for their friends to play. No other skate game on mobile devices has this feature.


We are planning on having a contest every week which will have the player make a timed run through a skatepark. The contest will go for a 24 hour period and in that period, the player gets a practice run to get a feel for the park. Then they have 2 runs to get the highest score they can. The player with the highest score at the end of the day wins the contest and gets a special skate deck as a prize
