In February, Tony Hawk confirmed he was working on a new game for mobile devices. That game, Tony Hawk’s Shred Session, has now been seen in the wild, courtesy of TouchArcade. The lane-based vertical running game is being compared to Subway Surfers, but set in the Tony Hawk universe. TouchArcade notes:
The big difference in Shred Session, compared to everything else out there, is how they took this formula that's been proven time and time again to work well on mobile, and added all the tricks you're used to from Tony Hawk games. How fluid it all goes together is actually super cool, as instead of just swiping to avoid objects and other junk in your way, you're swiping to ollie off ramps, swiping some more to do various tricks, and landing to keep your score going.Take a look: http://youtu.be/0jJIizKmkO4 Tony Hawk’s Shred Session will launch exclusively on mobile devices in the coming weeks.
