Touchgrind Scooter follows on from Touchgrind BMX 2 and Touchgrind Skate 2 in enabling your digits to partake in some extreme sports. Like its predecessors, it offers a 3D view of proceedings, with two of your fingers being used to steer and perform outlandish tricks.
What continues to set this series apart is how much it feels like learning a new skill. Careen around without care and you’ll fail – badly. But if you more carefully learn the various tricks and the routes through the unlockable locations, mastery brings great reward.
You get a lot of game for free, including several varied places in which to grind rails, jump off ramps and perform death-defying loops. If you hanker for more, a one-hit $8.99/£8.99/AU$13.99 IAP unlocks four more superb locations.
