What Is The Ramp?

The Ramp is a skateboarding game that its developer describes as a “digital skateboarding toy”. Essentially, it is a relaxed skateboarding title that aims to capture skateboarding “in its purest form.” Players will be able to explore four unique levels and perform various tricks. The idea is to chill out and enjoy the flow in this easy-to-learn but hard-to-master title. It feels reminiscent of a game I reviewed a while back called Lo-fi Ping Pong. Here’s some of what you can expect in The Ramp:

  • Enjoy a “stripped-back experience” that aims to give players a relaxed skateboarding experience
  • Free roam around four unique levels, each one designed to accommodate different tricks
  • There are no points, levels, or unlockables. This is truly a game about chilling out and enjoying some skateboarding
  • Listen to a “chilled-out” soundtrack while you skate away
  • “Chill out, do tricks, and look damn cool.”
