RIP Ralph Baer
I really, really hate writing obits. I really do. But I take it as a personal honor to be able to say good things about the men and women I respect, whether in this industry or just in my life, and Ralph Baer is the reason all of this exists in the first...
In Let's Skate, the player steers his skateboard through a total of 40 levels. Always on the run from the police, you have to get to the next skate shop with your board as fast as possible to complete the level. Speed is everything because once the police catches up to you, the level is deemed as not completed. However, despite an imminent arrest, a real skater won't complete the wild chase without doing cool tricks and casual jumps. Extra points can be collected in the form of coins and later be exchanged against useful power-ups, such as a speed bonus in the skate shop. Via in-app purchase, five further characters can be unlocked in addition to the five standard skaters.
