You're a skateboarder in Skate City, one of the largest skateparks ever built. Ollie off of ramps, grind on rails, and swerve past pedestrians as you bust out tricks. Visit skate shops scattered around the park to upgrade your gear and improve your skills. Participate in competitions to earn medals and cash to use in the shops. But, if you don't get to a competition in time, the infamous “Skate Or Die” message appears, and then you have to hurry!

Long before the days of Tony Hawks and the likes. This was as good as it got! A real classic game.
