Activision’s Tony Hawk series defined skating games for most of the 2000s. Now, over a decade later, the company is bringing a new instalment of the series to the iPhone and iPad in the form of Tony Hawk's Shred Session, a free-to-play lane-based autorunner.
As a lane-based endless game, Tony Hawk's Shred Session looks pretty standard. Swiping left or right shifts your skater between lanes to collect coins and avoid obstacles.
Where Shred Session changes things up is its trick system. Ramps and rails in your path allow you to perform all manner of grinds and jumps to earn more cash, and generally look cool.
The game will feature two game modes: Shred Sessions and Survival. Shred Sessions will harken back to the original Tony Hawk Pro Skater games, setting you 20 different objectives to achieve in its short runs. These need not be completed all at once, letting you rerun tracks to focus on specific tasks.
Survival, on the other hand, will challenge you stringing together tricks to keep your run going.
The game’s free-to-play elements let you purchase items to improve your skaters look with Coins, while buying Bills will help you speed up your progress and continue if you bail during a run.
Tony Hawk's Shred Session will be soft-launched soon, with a worldwide release expect this summer.
