Skate Boardin'
Atari 2600 - A2600

Skateboarding, also known as Skateboarding: Radical Adventure is a video game developed by Absolute Entertainment and released in 1987 for the Atari 2600. It was created by former Activision programmer David Crane, creator of the hugely successful Trap! games. One of the first ever skateboarding video games, 'Skateboarding' is widely regarded as a failed attempt at the genre. The game was re-released in 2002 as part of Activision's Anthology Collection. A sequel was released in 1988 for the Atari 7800 called Super Skateboardin'.

The player must discover and successfully negotiate thirty hidden tricks in the form of ramps and pipes within five minutes. To save time, you can skitch on the back of a moving vehicle. The fire button makes the player jump, although there is no need to do so in the game other than jumping on the skateboard after falling.
