Summary

Skatemasta Tcheco is a platformer game where you navigate via a skateboard, the level is constantly rolling so it’s more a runner. It leans into the nostalgic retro game a lot with its 8 Bit graphics and Chiptune soundtrack, the thing is though the gameplay is just kind of boring and noneventful. I mean I clocked the game in under an hour, the only challenge was not accidentally doing air attacks into death which was way too easy to do! Calling in friends didn’t really do anything constructive and in fact, boss fights were so simple it wasn’t ever an issue. Levels began to feel the same and just generally the game never really did anything memorable. I liked the graphics but aside from that it just never got going and I had to force myself through it. Definitely, one for Platinum hunters though as the Platinum took less time than the game completion time. To be fair though the later levels do provide a bit more challenge and are at least nice to look at. Overall if you want a short nostalgia trip then you have a new game to play.
