  • Summary: Grind on bendy straws, kickflip over staplers, and carve killer lines through cardboard and sticky tape parks. Above all else, skate birds try their best!

    SkateBIRD is a beautiful and heartwarming game, and it’s something that will stay with me for years to come.

    Through a great soundtrack and entertaining story beats, SkateBIRD proves that you don’t need to always look to the skies for a game to leave a lasting impression.

    Skatebird is a charming but flawed game. The cute characters and strong environments are coupled with a camera system that acts haywire anytime you're near an object. The forgiving respawn system becomes brutal when you return to a spot where you're near an object that is difficult to navigate around. The sometimes-dodgy collision detection can make some quests go on longer than they should. It's still a game worth checking out, but here's hoping that some patches can elevate it into something special.

    A decent skateboarding game with an entertaining theme and quirk. The physics and visuals imperfections hold it back for sure but there's still enough there to have a good few hours of fun.

    SkateBIRD is a charming game with fun writing and a great soundtrack, but can’t strike a good balance between offering precision boarding and silly physics chaos.

    SkateBIRD is a serene and meditative experience but relies a little too heavily on nostalgia with its design while removing any real challenge. Controls hindered the opportunity to get more out of this experience, and I found my bird spent more time rolling on the ground than around on the skateboard. The mission, dialogue, and overall narrative were fun to uncover but isn’t there enough to sustain your interest after completion, essentially clipping the wings of replayability.

    There a lot of elements of SkateBIRD that are great. The birds are fun, as is customizing them and finding more things with which to dress them up. Their little adventure is also fun, the soundtrack is excellent, and the levels are fun miniaturized takes on the normal skatepark fare. It’s just that there is so much dragging these charming elements down, the most noticeable of which is the actual skating and the physics involved with it. SkateBIRD might be fun to experience for its premise and cuteness, but those looking for a good technical skate game experience will likely find their expectations crashing and burning frequently, much like most of my sessions with it.

    The physics are really bad but I guess the birds were skateboarding so there's that.

    Literalmente no hay motivo para jugar esto. Es malo, punto.

    Existe SKATE 3, los remaster de Tony Hawk y un monton de indies mejores.

Apesar de ser um jogo indie, é visível q foi muito mal trabalhado. Estremamente bugado, mecânicas ruins, não reconhece bem os gamepad's. Não é nem um pouco divertido. Até os gráficos, q apesar de puxarem um estilo simplório são muito bugado, com texturas horríveis em alguns lugares. Expand

    Horroroso demais. Nem criança consegue se divertir com um jogo desses. Muito mal feito, não enttega nada em termos técnicos e de diversão.
