Super Skateboardin’ (Atari 7800)

Super Skateboardin’ (Atari 7800)

Super Skateboardin’ was developed by Absolute Entertainment for the Atari 7800 in 1988. It’s sort of an odd game in that it really doesn’t have much to do with skateboarding.

In this game, you work in a factory for your father and have to traverse the factory at night to turn everything off. You happen to do this while riding a skateboard. It really isn’t a bad game despite the weak sounding concept, it’s just that the skateboard bit is sort of misleading. You don’t do any of the things you might expect out of a skateboarding game like doing tricks, riding a half pipe, etc.

Interestingly, this is a sequel to Skate Boardin’ which came out the previous year on the Atari 2600. Skate Boardin’ was all about skateboarding and had nothing to do with working in a factory.
