Author's comments and explanations:
This is a run of the obscure port of Tony Hawk's Pro Skater for the Game Boy Color that is focused mor on racing and getting points, than doing various tricks on a fully 3D environment like game. There are various modes in this port, being Championship Mode the main mode.

Game objectives

  • Emulator used: VBA version v23.5-rr-svn421
  • Get the fastest time possible.
  • Winning the championship mode in the last chance.
  • Entertain, mostly in the 2 last tracks.


Here, I used Bucky Lasek for more speed and jumping. You can get hit by your opponents, but sometimes it gives you more push.

Stage by stage comments

Stage 1: The Street

I intentionally didn't make anything interesting here, but I was concentrated on being fast than being entertaining. Not too much strategy here.

Stage 2: Park

This time, the obstacles were harder to avoid, since they were 2 routes to choose from, but I finnally made it. I also used a boost at the start of the race, that I used in the rest of the tracks.

Stage 3: Downtown

Same as stage 2, but with more jumping.

Stage 4: Harbor

This is the part where the run becames interesting. The stage has the biggest amount of obstacles, so its nice to see how I avoided all of those obstacles. But theres one more thing... the water. I managed to take a route to avoid most of the water parts and that gave me more speed.

Stage 5: Skate Park

The most fun part of the movie. When I was on 3rd place, I performed a certain trick that allowed me to get a bunch of points in one rail, by jumping right back into the rail over and over again and finishing in 1st place.

Other comments

This is more like an exotic run, because of the obscurity of the game and surprising everyone by doing the impressive things in the end. Oh, this is also a childhood game, so thats why I TASed this game. There could be a lot of improvements in the future, since theres no glitches found in this game. If someone could get a screenshot and an encode, I will be thankful.

Mothrayas: Cancelling, as this is a testrun and not optimized.
