Production, which started the famous cycle of arcade games allowing you to embody the world's most famous skaters and test in performing crazy evolutions in different parts of the world.

Mechanics

Neversoft creators made ten skateboards available for fun, including Tony Hawk, Bucky Lasek, Bob Burnquist and Chad Muska. Each of them has its own characteristic tricks and skateboards.

Tony Hawk's Skateboarding does not try to simulate extreme skateboarding. The mechanics, developed by the creators, allows you to bend the laws of physics and make sometimes crazy combinations of evolution, but never exceeds a certain level, in which the fun would be completely detached from the real world.

Game modes

As part of the Career Mode, players can test their skills on nine boards with a number of tasks. The game is about achieving the next goals during two-minute journeys to collect all the film tapes. Items are awarded not only for beating point results, but also for collecting letters that make up the word SKATE or performing a mission characteristic for a given map. In addition to the career mode, manufacturers have also made it possible to practice skills in free riding on each of the unlocked boards and to compete for two players. On a split screen, two enthusiasts of driving on a board can measure themselves in a traditional battle for points, a struggle to mark as many elements as possible on their colour, or a competition for the best scored one trick.

Technical issues

Tony Hawk's Skateboarding features detailed 3D graphics, including detailed player models. The strong point of the title is the soundtrack, on which there are songs of such groups as The Vandals, Goldfinger, Dead Kennedys or Primus, well matched to the struggles of skaters. In the United States the game was released under the title Tony Hawk's Pro Skater.
