Game number 53 completed! Hurrah!
Found the last of the pro skaters, and found the entrance to the casino. Once in there, I had to snag a load more pieces for the skate ranch (some of which were pretty hard), and then the police chased me all the way back to the ranch.
I expected to have to do some “final task”, like in THUG and THUG2, but no – that was it. Guy gets Dirrrty Mindy, Skate Ranch is saved, video shown, party, credits, etc. The End. Finished off the “trick on the pieces” thing Mindy gets you to do in the ranch, before moving on.
So I made a start on Classic Mode. Which seems somewhat easy. I don’t recognise all of the levels (such as the beach one), but The Mall and Chicago seem to be from THPS or THPS2. Or both. Made it up to The Ruins, and have done the score goals, but can’t find more than one of the five doughnut boxes, am missing two SKATE letters, can’t do the COMBO letters, have no idea where the Secret Tape is, and can only find four of the five road kills I have to collect. Boo!
