I wrote about it The ramp a few weeks ago when i thought it looked like a cool little skateboard game but i’m writing about it again now because it’s out and i played it and it is Marvelous.
Before we start, let’s set some expectations: The ramp is a very small game. It costs $ 4.79 at launch. It has a handful of skaters to choose from, it only takes place on four stages, there is no campaign, no licensed soundtrack, no extravaganza of sponsored content or unlockable guest stars.
What it has are two things: an isometric angle of view and beautifully coordinated controls that let you just sit back, relax, and skate to your heart’s content. That’s it! This game is a toy, a set of four blank canvases – each offering slightly different challenges, from standard vert ramps to enormous jumps – that you can skate on at will.
There’s no stress about your combo score, no time limit gnawing at you, no leaderboards, and no multiplayer. If you prefer Ice skate

The ramp So is a skate sandbox, a fantastic exploration of how much fun it is to skate, crash (the crash physics here is crunchy cute), and get up again when you just do it for yourself and the inherent joy in fact itself to find.
It is now on Steam.
