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 1.5
- Improved support for MacBook Air
- Bug fixes
Not really worth it
Let me get things straight. First of all, I got Touchgrind BMX, and it was great. I got the full version for 8 bucks, and found this game also. I decided to try it out for a bit. However, there are no instructions whatsoever on how to even do this. Secondly, if you have no expirience with these trackpad games, then dont waste your time. The instructional videos do not work at all, and everytime I try to press it, it keeps freezing up. It took me about an hour to figure out these controls, and once I did, it was okay. Could use more work. If you want a more fun, entertaining game, play Touchgrind BMX. Nice try on this, though. Rated one star only.
Used to love playing on my iPhone. Controls almost impossible to use with a touchpad
Pretty much the title says it all. The controls are nearly unusable when you can’t actually touch the board. When I try to catch a trick, the “feet” don’t come anywhere near the board. It is very difficult to do tricks or even go in a straight line because of the touchpad. Save yourself the money and just buy the iPhone version.
Worth it, you just need to practice
It was the first trackpad game I’ve had, but it has been super fun. If you aren’t good at it, don’t give the game a lower star. That’s called being a poor sport!
It’s a good game but it’s hard to master at first.
