OlliOlli World is the third installment of the autoscroller series by Roll7, an independent studio. We take the role of a skater riding through the land called Radland. This place, described as a skateboard utopia, is full of various skating routes and challenges. During the game, we visit different nooks and crannies of Radland, interact with eccentric characters and compete with other players.
The gameplay in OlliOlli World is a continuation of the previous parts of the series. The basics remain the same. We observe the action from the side, in a 2D perspective. Our hero automatically moves on his skateboard and cannot brake or turn back. On our way there are constantly obstacles, chasms, barriers, which we have to avoid. During the ride we can perform various tricks and combine them into combos, increasing our points counter. We will have the opportunity to jump on ramps, slide on narrow beams and even ride on walls. Stages contain several available paths, providing freedom of choice during gameplay. The player's goal is to complete levels and beat score records. The game is characterised by a very precise control.
During the game we meet a variety of challenges and heroes who can give us side missions. While doing them we gain cosmetic items, thanks to which we can freely change the appearance of our hero. In this way we also unlock special tricks, which we can perform during the game.
OlliOlli World features a gigantic single-player sandbox mode. It consists of millions of unique levels set in a variety of locations. There is also a competitive mode, allowing us to compete with other players. It is divided into leagues, in which skaters from all over the world fight for the highest possible results.
Compared to previous parts of the series, OlliOlli World went through a graphical revolution. Graphics consists of 3D models observed from a 2D perspective (2.5D). The world we explore is colourful, cute and cartoonish. The graphic style may bring to mind animated series such as Adventure Time. Also impressive are the catchy and cheerful songs that play in the background during gameplay.
