I have fond memories of playing Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 2 on my PlayStation back in high school. I remember trading stories with friends about the biggest tricks I’d pulled, and being astounded at the scores that “a friend of their’s” could pull. I remember single-mindedly trying to beat those trick scores, re-starting a level each time I bailed so that I could achieve that perfect run. Sadly for me, no other Tony Hawk game that I’ve played has been able to capture that magic. So I was very pleased to find out that that classic of classics, Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 2, has now been released for the iPhone and iPod Touch.
The $10 iPhone app includes levels, game modes, and characters from the original version, so it should be pretty sweet. The on-screen controls even mimic the original gamepad layout. This is your best opportunity to play the game on the go, short of wearing a PlayStation around your neck, Flavor Flav style. Yeah boy!
