The smash hit Touchgrind is now available for your Mac!
To celebrate the success of Touchgrind and Touchgrind BMX for iPhone and iPad, we release this game for FREE!
REQUIREMENT: Touchgrind is controlled using Multi-Touch technology, thus requires a MacBook (MacBook Late 2009 or MacBook Pro 2008 and newer) or a Magic Trackpad.
Just like in real skateboarding or fingerboarding, Touchgrind is a game of skill that takes 10 minutes to understand but weeks practice to master.
The innovative finger controls together with true physics simulation let you pull off tricks like ollies, shuvits, kickflips, heelflips, impossibles, 5-0, 50-50, crooks, smithgrinds, boardslides, tailslides, darkslides etc in endless combinations.
What's New in Version 1.4
- Improved touch input
- Bug fixes
love the app but...
i love this game. i play it all the time when im bored. my high schore is a bit more then 2 million so i have unlocked all the borers except for THE NINJA. i try using the zen and Black Devil boards but they are very touchy and i can rarely land any tricks so all i can do is gring and hope to make it to 3 million but i always run out of time. all the other boards before the Zen board works just fine. im not sure if making the Zen and Black Devil borads very sensitive is to make it challenging but it ruins the fun for me. others might like the challenge but not me. but this game is fun
Takes practice. Just like everything else.
I've only had this game for three days and play for maybe 30 minutes, once a day. It really takes practice and I'm having fun. I like it because it challenges me. I also like it because anyone can play it. It's not just a game for real life skaters.
The hardest part is the turning. Since it uses the trackpad, it's really sensitive so just a little movement of your fingers turns the board a crazy amount. But I really love the way I can flip the board around, even if it's only on the grind and not to do jumps and grinds. :)
For all you Macbook Air users
I heard that this does not work on the Macbook Air. I have a new Macbook Air and i downloaded this app. It did give me the screen that said that my trackpad would’t work but I ignored it and it usually works fine
