Oh lordy lord. What a pile of rubbish.
Not that I was actually expecting much else, but my thirst for Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater knows no cure, so I had to quench it for a bit by buying the Game Boy Colour versions of whatever THPS games I could find for sale. So far, that’s only the third (and final GBC) one. And it’s not actually very good.
Much of the problem is only having two buttons. OK, so the GBA version of THAS squeezed six controls into four buttons, but squeezing four into two just doesn’t work. Not only that, but you can only skate left and right, so it’s basically 2D.
Admittedly, I haven’t spent very long on it, but I haven’t even managed to get over 10,000 points in a run yet, and the score to beat is 300,000. Clearly impossible.
