Read the fascinating history of the Kickflip, ollie, tail slide, nose slide and the shoveI – these are the skateboard tricks you can perform on your Android, if you download this app and get your index fingers to work in coordination with each other.

The controls seem simple – just two on-screen buttons – one for jumping and one for accelerating, but pressing them in combination brings on the stunts. You skate in three different worlds, trying for power-up trophies while avoiding deadly obstacles like animals and fire. It’s side-scroller action for rebels. Maybe that’s why thousands have rated it five stars.
