  • Summary: SPUMCO is holding auditions for an upcoming action feature called Hypergrind, in which the main character will be an animated skateboarder capable of performing wild tricks. As the character of your choice, you'll enroll in SPUMCO's newly founded stunt school where you'll compete against other outrageous characters while pulling off fantastic tricks on eight movie sets. The one to graduate at the top of the class earns the right to star in the upcoming show. How well you perform during the audition process and in stunt school will determine how lucrative a contract you're offered. Expand

  1. By taking a lighthearted and cartoony approach to a genre of games that was previously untouched by such antics, Poponchi succeeds in providing an altogether refreshing gameplay experience for those who are tired of the traditional elements of skateboarding games.
  2. Actually works shockingly well and pans out to be an engaging, if simplistic, skateboarding experience with some legitimately amusing gags and great presentational aspects.
  3. Doesn't quite live up to its potential, mostly due to very mechanical control and a shallow trick system. [Dec 2003, p.159]
  4. A laugh-out-loud funny skateboarder. [Feb 2004, p.149]
  5. The animation is a tad stiff, and the control takes some time to master given the state of the characters, but GGH is surprisingly addictive. [Dec 2003, p.85]
  6. With too much style and not enough substance, this one can only Go! Go! so far. [Dec 2003, p.88]
  7. The edgy cartoon trappings kept me interested in this game far longer than its actual gameplay. Which is to say, about an hour - or maybe three, if you count the two times I had to restart because I was still figuring out the Story mode's rules that don't let you retry events.

    The gameplay in this is not that fun or addictive, or engaging but the graphics will keep you surprised and stuck for a little while.
