What's New in Version 1.2.0
For PEOPLE that are DECIDING to BUY the APP
If your still deciding whether to buy Touchgrind 2, and are shaky about spending $5 on an app with no preview to try out, believe me, I've been there. I took a risk on buying it and it paid off. Here is some info on the game:
People have been saying the way the board is set in the picture at an angle is uncomfortable. I don't have the original touchgrind, but the stance is great. It is not too angled that you have to bend your fingers forward. It is also not so flat, that you can't see the scenery and obstacles.
The physics are incredible ! It reacts to the soft or hard touch of your finger. It sometimes mistakes the types of tricks being performed.
The parks have a great variety of obstacles and themes. However there can be more in my opinion.
Vs. Touchgrind BMX
I think touchgrind 2 is better because it offers more freedom than touchgrind BMX. It also offers a wide variety of customization of your board and not just preloaded paints.

Gameplay is solid
If you played the first touchgrind you will most def like this more and if you didn't you'll probably like this too so give a try you won't be disappointed the game play is solid and has many challenges to keep you playing and even has a ready feature so you can record your best runs they give you four nice sized locations that you can skate in the only thing I hope for on the future is more locations and different boards I really would like different styles of board like maybe a penny board or a fishtail and they could use more customization for the boards but for now it's a great value and best of all....NO IAP!!
Man, this game drove me crazy when I 1st played it. I actually was about to delete it due to the frustration of learning to control the board and pulling off different combos, but I decided to stick with it and invest the time necessary. Let me tell you that's it worth it. When it all comes together and you get that perfect line, it's an amazing feeling. I still have a lot to learn and I'm looking forward to it. If you're on the fence about buying it, just do it. The learning curve is kinda steep, but the fun you'll have afterwards will be thrilling.
