Hey guys, welcome back to the channel. I’m playing a game called stickman skate battle, and I thought I would show you this game. Someone recommended it to me. I had your name written down, but it’s on my tablet, and I’m using my tablet so sorry I couldn’t look that up. But it’s a online battle game where you skate around and try to get high scores. It’s not great. Wait, I am… I am on the left side. I was on the right side when I was playing it earlier, so I got confused. But you skate around and you do tricks, and you try to beat the other guy. That’s about it. So I am playing this with a gamepad, but it’s probably a touchscreen. It doesn’t really make it any easier. I don’t think… the spinning might be slightly easier. The controls are kind of weird. So you steer with the left stick, but you also have to spin by drawing circles with it. Like, you don’t just hold left, you actually have to do circles with it or you’ll stop in whatever direction you’re pointing. On the right here, you can see, you would see a joystick if I didn’t have a controller plugged in. But you can see my list of tricks there. You start with 2, and I have four now. I bought stiffies and nose grabs, but you also have heel flips, which it calls kick flips, and Indies. Okay so I am still trying to figure out the rules for the online mode. I don’t know if I can actually pick at all. It seems like… man is that just my internet being crappy? But it seems like, you either go for a minute, or you go until you bail. Which I’m not really sure how that works. Sometimes you just do a full minute and then it’s over. Sometimes it seems like you play for a little bit, and then it’ll be their turn, then it’s your turn again. Then it’s their turn again. It goes back and forth for a while. I’m not entirely sure, but I just did… I did just do an update, so it might have changed since the last time I played it. All right, it really… the game is really based on how long you hold things, so for him to do this kind of stuff, just holding grabs as long as possible, is a good way to get scores. He really should be doing spins, but it looks like he’s got me beat once he lands that. I probably shouldn’t have been talking the whole time, oh that boardslide was enough! Oh man, look I beat him by, like, 30 points. [Music] Take that, Guest_5db35… okay, at this point, I’ll have the opportunity to challenge him. Okay, he wants to play again. Let’s do it. All right. Oh okay, well there you go. Um, let’s try another one. So I’m currently ranked… I think I got to rank three, so I should be able to play this level. All right, that’s a different person. Let’s give this a try. There are some practice modes, but you have to pay with your coins to get into them, and it is a regular free to play style game. This guy is gonna upgrade a board, he might actually be good. It is a free to play style game, so you have to like watch ads to get points and get coins and you can buy whatever and all that kind of stuff that all these free-to-play games have. I would have much preferred to spend a dollar or two and just unlock the game rather than have to do all that stuff, so I’m probably not gonna be playing this one too much. But I wanted to give you a chance to take a look at it anyway. Yeah so you saw that tree that got in the way. You can’t control the camera at all, so it’s just kinda… it’s kind of weird that they would put that there. So he seems like he’s going around and collecting all of the power, or the trick boosts, but then he’s not doing anything. He’s got a huge score though. I don’t know what he’s doing. He might know more about the game than I do. So he has got another five seconds. Okay, I think you get a minute total, and you lose your turn if you bail, but you still get to finish out your time. I think that’s how it works. Okay come on, I’m not getting any air. Okay, so since he finished his time, I just keep going when I bail. Okay, so staying in transition can be pretty tough because you you have to, like, hold the direction away from the transition, but you also have to spin, so it’s kind of weird. Like, you have to hold it back for a second. Why is he in here? So you have to hold back for a second just to kind of decide to stay in, and then you have to rotate. Kind of weird. Oh I’m winning! All right, yeah. This level is good for points with all those power-ups. He says “wow.” I don’t know how you talk to people. That might not even be real, if I had to guess. Alright time’s up. I win. I have never lost, which is not because I’m any good. You can see I’m kind of fumbling around and figuring out what I’m doing too, but there you go. I’ve ranked up to four, okay, collect $1.00. Okay. I don’t want an amazing offer. No thank you. Well there you go. I’m gonna try to play a different level, just to show you. What are you doing game? Every time you hit home… come on, go. Hey. Every time you hit ‘home,’ it takes you to a different place. I have to be ranked five to play that level, so you can play the first level for free, but if you want to play this one you have to pay ten gold, which is weird because you don’t earn it that quickly. But anyway, I’ll play one more time just to give you a pretty good feel for the game. I’m getting a little bit better. I say as I bail. But yeah, I don’t necessarily recommend this one. For me, I basically have to play every skateboarding game. It’s a compulsion. I have to at least… I have to at least try them, and I’m glad that I did, because it’s interesting. It works. It’s cool to see what else is out there, but I don’t think this is gonna be the one for me. I’m gonna stick to True Skate. Yeah and I did reviews of True Skate and Skater, and I had originally decided that Skater was better, but that was like last December I think. And at this point, I only play True Skate. I think that one ends up being a little bit more varied. You can do a little bit more. I like having the shoes so that you could do spins and everything in Skater, but True Skate is actually better. You can check out my reviews for those if you’d like, but yeah. This one, I think you could safely give it a pass now that you’ve seen what it’s like. But if it is interesting to you, go ahead and take a look at it, especially if you really get into the free-to-play stuff and you’re gonna remember to spin the wheel for your reward everyday and all that kind of stuff. There’s nothing wrong with any of that, I just I’m too old to worry about all that crap. I don’t want to sit around and have to worry about opening the app a certain amount of times every day and all that kind of stuff. I’d rather just pay a couple bucks and get it over with, but you know, that’s me. You might have your own preferences. So we’ll finish off this level. I’ll show you a grind, that’s it. You can do a rail slide. I don’t think… yeah, you can’t do a 50/50, and you also can’t do a trick out of it and the times I’ve tried, you can’t possibly get enough air to finish a trick. So there’s that. I’ll show you around the game just a little bit more. Okay, so yeah, here’s your free coins… oh. I’m a lot I’m gonna skip this. Okay that was an unskipable 30-second ad. I guess I hit the free coins button already, where it just gives you some coins, so then it made me watch an ad. There’s a shop where you can buy tricks and stuff. So I have all of those. I don’t have a tail grab. See, there’s like cash and there’s also coins, which have different meanings. I don’t know. Yeah. So I don’t know if I would ever get a hundred and fifty thousand gold, but yeah, if you get really into it that’s all there. You can buy different skaters with different abilities, get different boards. You can buy power-ups, extra time for your battles, all that kind of stuff. So if this is something you’re interested in, go ahead and give it a shot. You can also buy coins by doing various things, like spending a hundred dollars for a million coins. I wouldn’t recommend doing that, but yeah, the game itself is free, so there’s no harm and at least trying it if you’d like, but I’m showing you about all there is to it. So if you are interested in skateboarding games, I have a lot of skateboard game videos on the channel, from reviews to gameplay videos, to all kinds of other things. They’re usually a little bit more interesting than this, but that’s what this game is like. So thanks for watching, and check out those other things.
