Tony Hawk's Shred Session coming to iOS this summer

A new iOS game by Tony Hawk is coming called Shred Session which promises to combine familiar lane-based endless running with gesture-based skateboard tricks.

The survival mode demands that you string together tricks for as long as possible, while the standard shred session offers a handful of objectives to complete. One of the shred sessions modes is for skate-offs where you need to mimic the tricks made by another character. There are also timed, trick, and vertical challenge modes to try out. Like most free-to-play titles, you earn coins in-game for completed sessions which can be spent on unlocking new in-game items. There's also a premium currency employed here for the nicer items. There will be six skaters to chose from out of the gate, including Lizzie Armanto, Chris Cole, Aaron Homoki, Tony Hawk, and his son Riley Hawk. As for stages, there are a five to start with, including a warehouse and the streets of Santa Monica.

Tony Hawk's Shred Session will be free-to-play, and soft launching within the next few weeks with a full roll-out due over the summer. Any fans of the original Tony Hawk games? How is the mobile iteration looking to you?

Tony Hawk's Shred Session coming to iOS this summer


How is this game "BY" Tony Hawk? (as opposed to just having his name attached as a licence)

Wow, way to give the game developers credit for all their work.

I imagine it's due to people actually knowing who Tony Hawk is and not knowing Jumatharka Bushtilitine or some other random dev.

I was taking issue at a poor choice of words.

I was not suggesting that every individual on the dev team should be credited. Crediting the development studio is fair enough, or perhaps the publisher who funded the game, but the licensor typically has very little involvement.

You'd be surprised how ignorant some people are of how games get made. (A surprising number of non-technical people assume that all app developers "work for Apple", for instance, or don't understand why all apps aren't free.)

Please, oh please, don't let this app be free. I would gladly pay for it. If it's "free" it implies that there will be iAPs which, more often than not, ruin the game. [fingers crossed]

Booooo! Hisssssss! This game looks STUPID!!! I would gladly pay for a new port of one of the old tony hawk pro skater games. THPS2 was never updated for iPad & you can't even play it anymore on the iPhone. There is no doubt that THPS2 for iPhone sold millions of copies at $5 a pop. This is LAME! Booooo! Hisssss!
