I hate how long it takes to get the first 2 characters. I just wanna play the game immediately. They should have been part of the tutorial section.
Probably not the Mozgus you remember. More understanding, more drunk, less irate, less informative.

They ARE the tutorial section -- it doesn't take long.
Gum's stuff is pretty easy.
Tab's stuff is just a bit trickier. I think it took me a couple tries my first time....

Oh -- I guess I've never tried that....
Huh. Well last night I blew through it in a few minutes.
I completed three stages last night.

I forgot that even in the first levels the police swarm on you fast.
Little tip to newbies.... do the big, multi-can graffiti in the open, lower areas first before the police are on you. :)

Epic Fail!

I'm damned if I can 'get' this game :oops: . Though I WILL persevere. :roll:

I remembered that I was pretty damn pants at this when I originally played it but I do remember that I got a little way into the main game before something else shiny got my attention.

I've got it fired up at the moment and I'm just getting angry with it. I thought I'd start off with the tutorial to get a bit warmed up. Moving about was fine, jumping and grinding Ok. Then it asked me to do 20 tricks in a row! :o Now I have to admit I'm no Tony Hawks player but I had a huge problem getting 20. I only eventually got it by luck after a fluky jump from a grind along the walkway took me back in the opposite direction. With whoops and hollers I looked with dismay at the next task to do 30 in a row

There must be some knack, some sweet route to take for maximum grinding on this intro level.

Any hints to get me through the intro? :lol:

I know how you feel. I never beat the tutorial. How in the hell do you nail 30 tricks in a row? Are there secret moves I don't know about?

Got it now, had enough of the tutorial and went into the main game. Doing much better, sailed through the first level after getting to know it from the tutorial.

Looks like I'm going to have to learn the second level at bit. Had a couple of goes but timed out each time. Having a bit of problem getting the spray points in the half pipe sewers. Can't quite get the hang of getting up enough hight to reach them.

Also, am going to have to practice my wall grinds to get across the gap above the playground as I keep on falling into the street below.
