Super Skateboardin'

Recommended Posts

I know this is a somewhat dumb game.... but I don't care, I like it! It's mindless, sure, and I can't figure out what office/factory/warehouse would have tubes that people would use to get to different floors instead of stairs or an elevator, but whatever. It's fun!

 

Who else likes this odd game?

I think if this game was like 2600's Adventure and could be randomized it would be one of the better games in the library. It's definitely bright and plays well. And falling off the roof? One of the most infamous moments in the library.

I like it too.   Not many games like this on the 7800, where you can wander around a more mellow environment.

The gameplay I enjoy, but the name Super Skateboardin' is it's biggest problem problem. It may have been a bit disapointing for some to buy this game new thinking it's going to be an actual skateboarding game like Skateboardin' on the 2600. I think that Super Switch Flippin' would have been a more accurate title. You could make the playable character a janitor riding a floor buffer and it would play the same.

And, for those curious, there are a few interesting ways to fall off the roof:

  • ride off the edge
  • ride off the edge while jumping
  • ride off the edge while kneeling (the animation is pretty wacky with this one)
  • tap down twice and watch your skateboard roll off.  Now you have the ability to walk or jump off without a board
  • same as the one above, but after dropping your skateboard, pick it up so you're walking with it.  Now, walk to the very edge of the roof.  Press down to put your skateboard down and... oh no!  It goes straight down THROUGH the roof!  Now you'll have to walk / jump off.

I don't know why, but this would make a really clip stupid video, showing all of them.

Yeah I really enjoyed this game as a kid. I thought it made a good “sequel” to Skateboardin’ on the 2600, as neither of them actually needed skateboards but both were good times.
