Challenges in detail in the skate city game 

As you know that the skate city game takes place in three major cities, namely, Barcelona, Oslo and Los Angeles, after selecting the city you wish to play in, you will be asked to pick up a challenge. For any city you have chosen in the above step, you will have to choose between two options: The endless skate or the challenge.

While in reality if we see, the endless skate is not a challenge because all you have to do is to skate endlessly in the streets and the roads of your preferred city in an infinite loop with obviously no time fixed. If you want to score points in the ‘Endless skate’ option, then you have to perform tricks while you are skateboarding.

From ollies to nollies, several skateboarding tricks can nothing was challenging be done by moving the analogue stick left and right. 

If you are bored or too trained to play the ‘Endless skate’ then you can switch over to the ‘Challenge’ section which has its thrill. There are not one, but many different kinds of challenges that you will be asked to perform while playing the game. One of the challenges is the ‘Callout’ challenge where you have to perform a trick that is prompted on the screen of your laptop or monitor.

Another challenge in the skate city is the ‘Beach Race’ in which you have to race with the AI rival. Another one is the LAPD challenge in which you have to outrun a policeman that is left after you. If you haven’t noticed, it is evident that challenges not only differ from each other but also in the difficulty levels, therefore you don’t have a difficult time especially if you are a beginner in the skate city game. 

Another important issue that most of the players seem to miss is that the names of the challenges discussed above are different for each city. Hence, if you are playing in Barcelona then the LAPD challenge in Los Angeles will be called High Stakes on the map of Barcelona.
