“After our success with Chasing Yello, which was downloaded over 20.000.000 times worldwide we wanted to create a different kind of endless runner that has special appeal for a slightly different audience”, said Asbjoern Malte Soendergaard, CEO of Tactile Entertainment. “Skyline Skaters is an edgy game infused with just enough heart-pounding action to keep players on their toes, on their skateboards and away from the cops”!
In this adrenaline-fueled endless runner, players must avoid police capture and dangerous pitfalls between skyscrapers while trying to collect as many coins and power-ups as they can. Players can choose between four different characters - Matt, Christy, Barry and Mia - each with special abilities, such as triple jump, shield or grinding bonus. Skaters also have a choice of 25 different upgradeable skateboard types that also offer various bonuses in terms of score and how many coins can be collected. Special boards also have capabilities to increase the coin collection exponentially when skaters hit a streak of coins in-game, and others reward players based on how many friends they have. Skyline Skaters even has a special night/day cycle, which coincides with real time.
