Mike V: Skateboard Party includes a new fully customizable control system allowing you to configure your own button layout.

So, Mike V isn't on Powell anymore. I can't imagine Iron Fist, or Tork Trux are gonna last that much longer either. How does that work?
Because you can't kill and idea, and we will not be ruled!

the visuals are also mad visual yo

In this modern day age, I would recommend upgrading your "flip phone" for something more recent to compare what else is out there available on the mobile market. There is no THPS1 available on mobile... for that one  you will need to stick to your PSone.

My reply to that is

I have thps 2 on my iphone.

It's not THPS1, in fact it's an improvement, though I really liked THPS1

You are gay.  You completely jacked the THPS game play design (although this shit looks like it plays waaayyy worse) and threw a kook's name on it.  I wouldn't download this shit even it were free.  Maybe you should've spent 13 months designing something original and had someone relevant to the industry to endorse it.

That trailer should've been about 2 minutes shorter, or not have time waged on it at all. I'm not a gamer per se, I've just worked in the game industry for the past 12 years and though I'm not surprised by another crappy skating game, everything from the mechanics to the level design, to the bad animations is all reminiscent of THPS, which has always been an arcade style stunt platformer more than a skateboarding game. And seriously, it's better to use fictional brands than to waste money licensing brands that will only bring ridicule. Seriously, Airwalk? Seeing someone wearing enigmas in a modern setting is just weird.

And sorry not everyone wants to or can afford to upgrade from their shitty phones, pretentious asshole. Where's Grimcity when you need him? Bring some of that energy from the dopamine skate thread and direct it at these douches.

You should have done some market research before making this disaster of a game.

The Thrasher game was awesome though.
