Every once in a while a game comes along that really deserves credit. Tony Hawk Pro Skater is one such game. Looking back in retrospect it seems almost silly that no one made a skateboarding game of this quality before. Skateboarding is an artform and has become one sport that manages to be cool and underground at the same time as being popular worldwide. The skill and adrenaline of Skateboarding can be found right here on your favourite handheld console. Tony Hawk has several game modes including tournament and the extremely fun half-pipe mode. Tournament mode sees you racing through the streets against three computer controlled skaters, whoever has the most points at the end wins. Points are won from the time it takes to complete the course and the amount of tricks completed. In the half-pipe mode you have one minute to score as many points as you can. The best feature of the half-pipe mode is that you can link your tricks together to create high scoring combinations. It’s a balancing act between how many tricks you can do while you’re airborne and how fond you are of your face. Tony Hawk for the Gameboy Color is extremely fun and definitely worth checking out.
