Night Skate shines in a sea of freemium, ad-infested, cloned garbage. It's charming looking, controls are tight, and there's a decent skill ceiling. I'd like a bigger jump button, and some of the palettes really don't work. Some hits seem just unavoidable and the game is very short. However it's a lot of fun and I definitely got my money's worth out of it. I'd love a sequel and would gladly pay more for it.
It's good and absolutely worth the $3. It's got a tight skill floor and skill ceiling, which is what you want for toy games like this that you can play while you're watching or listening to something. However, I would like a few things: -a button to turn off the music so I can play my own music over Spotify etc -procedurally generated palettes; since it's just two colors, endless-ish palette unlocks would be great. -more levels. $1 per level is steep.
I played for a little and the only reason I can't give it a 5 star is because of the menu's. The aesthetic and music is great along with the controls, but the buttons are on the smaller side which can be difficult to press for larger hands. Choosing a stage can work exactly how you want to but can get annoying if you accidentally touch the screen. The last problem I have is that whenever you choose to go back to the menu it basically launches the game again if that makes sense
