Finger skateboarding best for tweens and teens.

What parents need to know

Ease of play

Two fingers set the board in motion, one stops it. Controlling the board well enough to perform tricks is another story, made somewhat easier by video tutorials and onscreen cues.

Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that this game takes a bit of time to understand and more than a little finger coordination to enjoy. True physics simulation lets kids play tricks. Once kids master it, time limits might be useful because it's pretty addicting. Video tutorials help with frustration.

QUALITY

You can almost feel the board under your feet in this realistic app. The physics are perfect and the urban skate parks nicely laid out. Kids will love designing their own boards with photos. Then it's practice, practice, practice to level up and win those trophies.
