iOS Game of the Week: Pocket Skate feels like playing with a Tech Deck in 2022


Every week that I run this column, I flip through a few resources to see what’s dropped recently on iOS devices and parse through what’s worth playing and what’s not. Mostly, there are a lot of duds, and I end up spending a lot of time talking about games available on Apple Arcade through necessity. 

But this past week, I discovered a title that completely took me by surprise — especially as I’ve been weening off of playing Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1+2 on PS4. Pocket Skate is a charming skateboarding game made by Australian indie developer Peter Leary that dropped a few weeks ago for iPad and iPhone, and it completely missed my radar. It’s a very chill game in which you flick, swipe, and tap your screen to pull off tricks, and coast around in small, colorful maps in one-minute skate sessions — or longer, if you’d like to Free Skate. It’s the perfect pick-up-and-play title when you’ve got a moment to kill, and oddly, it reminds me a lot of playing with old-school Tech Decks.
