Penny Time is a side-scrolling action game where you’ll ride the original plastic skateboard in search of points, multipliers, tricks and secrets!
Set in a post-retro game world not too far removed from suburbia, the player soon discovers that their Penny board has the ability to freeze time. You’ll ollie, hippy jump and power-slide your way under, through and over frozen obstacles to victory, and choose whether you cash in your earnings along the way or risk it all by playing increasingly difficult areas for even greater points. Each of the game’s unique levels feature two gameplay modes which will immerse and challenge both casual and experienced players alike.

Very fun, I'd like to win... BUT...
I really like this game- I love the competition aspect, the game itself is amazingly fun, and the requirement for rhythmic concentration is very cool... And surprisingly challenging. The soundtrack itself is also pretty great. Plenty of great things about this app, but here's that big "BUT...:" the app has a few glitches that are absolutely infuriating, if you're a perfectionist (and, since the only way to have a hope of winning the competition is to be perfectionistic... Well, it's infuriating to EVERYONE, I'd imagine.)
The most frustrating glitch/bug is that sometimes, a "swipe" for a trick will not register- say there's a white target, and you swipe up at the perfect second... You still might hit the obstacle, as if you didn't jump at all. I've noticed this in particular in the first half of the competition play, past the woman on the ground, when you have to jump onto the hood of a car. About 40% of the time, you swipe, it seems like everything is fine for the split second afterward... And then you wipe out!! I almost punched my iPod a few times, lol.
That, and sometimes when you try to restart a level, the app crashes.
Yes, these are frustrating issues that need to be fixed before I'd give this app a 5-star rating, but even with its issues, it's still a solid 4- simply for the hope of winning a free board! :D *fingers crossed*
Cool Game GREAT Music
Highly recommend, although as someone who's color blind, I find it extremely difficult and FRUSTRATING that the blue and white colors that I must "obey" are so incredibly hard to tell apart.
How about a deeper blue for us color blind guys? Or black, red, green - whatever. Just something that's easier for me to tell apart.
This is a fantastic game with a super sound track, the color issue is the only factor I'm not happy about.
Please update this.
Penny Customizer App!!!!!
Make a penny customizer app!! I enjoy making penny boards on your website but it would be better if it was an app for the iPhone.
