|Title: Skate or Die
Rom Player: Nesticle
Synopsis: WELCOME TO A RAD INFESTED WORLD. There's a place on Earth where hot dogs and nachos are health foods, summer vacations last the year round, and punk rockers with mohawk haircuts are looked upon as mello dudes. It's a place where rulers are determined not by their fund raising talents, but by their power to dominate the streets with rad skateboarding skills.
Here, the king of the road is none other than that skateboarding maniac - Rodney Recloose, owner of the Flesh 'N Asphalt Skateboard Shoppe. He, along with his freaked-out son, Bionic Lester, and their crazed cronies, Pete and Eddie, rule the streets with iron wheels. They're sort of a nuclear waste version of Al Capone and his once ruthless gang of gangsters.
As a newcomer on the scene, with power aspirations of your own, you must prove yourself to Rodney and his free-wheeling weirdos. That means you'd better be on your toes when you challenge friends in free-style and downhill competitions packed with rock 'n rolls and rail slides. And you'd better be on your worst behavior when you come board-to-board with Lester in the "whack 'em upside the head" joust! (**intro from manual**)
All I really remember about this game is the halfpipe/ramp play. Definately one of the first, and still on of the best skateboard games out there. I was inspired by this game to hurt myself a lot when I was younger.
A few really good ramp tricks if you can pull 'em:
540° Ollie Pump moderately, ollie
direction on the D pad,
press the opposite
direction to stop the
720° Ollie Same as 540 except pump
a lot more and
Handplant Pump a lot, your pump
determines how well it
turns out, press back and
B while on the lip of the
ramp, you must use
precise timing, hold the
position for as long as
you can for maximum
Best Cheats: None that I know of.
