A budget version of Skate Crazy (except you're on a skateboard). Using one key to push, and another couple for left and right you have to roll about the course (upward scroller) avoiding the obstacles and jumping ramps. On the far side of each ramp is a letter which can be collected by clearing them in the air. First an 'S', then a 'K', you have to make up the word skateboard - then you're ready to proceed to the next level.

It's a monochrome bash, and the graphics are a fair size, but the layout looks untidy and the action is too slow and messy, There's music and sp(mmm)eech synthesis on the special 128K version, but that doesn't help when a game is un-enhanceable.
