While searching for new games on the Google Play Store, I came across one called Perfect Grind. Noticing that it was developed by Noodlecake, the studio behind great titles like Alto’s Adventure and Alto’s Odyssey, I decided to give it a try. Perfect Grind’s theme is quite different, as our mission is to control a character on a skateboard and learn various skateboard tricks to progress in the game.
I won’t deny that I also gave Perfect Grind a chance because it was a free download for my Android phone, meaning I didn’t have to pay anything to try it out. After a few minutes of playing, I found it fun and found myself wanting to overcome the challenges the game presented: learning to jump, perform a manual, stay in the air, and more. If you’re looking for a new game to get hooked on and enjoy sports games, you should try Perfect Grind.

Perfect Grind, a Super Fun Skateboarding Game
Upon opening Perfect Grind for the first time, we see a menu showing that there are free modes and others that can only be unlocked by paying a fee of $3.39. I recommend trying the free “Career” mode first to see if you like the game. If you find it entertaining, it’s worth paying for the premium version.
When entering the “Career” mode, the first thing we do is choose the character we want to play with. You can choose between two free characters or collect in-game coins to unlock new characters. Next, we’ll access a brief tutorial where we’ll learn the most basic skateboard moves.
Beware, the first tricks are simple, and I had no problem mastering them. However, as I learned new moves, the difficulty increased, and I discovered that controlling the skateboard wouldn’t be as easy as I imagined. Additionally, getting hooked on Perfect Grind also helped me learn skateboarding terms I was completely unfamiliar with, like “doing manuals.”
As we perform better combos, the game rewards us with virtual coins that we can later use to customize our character. As we progress, we also unlock new gameplay tracks, such as urban centers or rooftops. If overcoming challenges is difficult because you don’t control the skateboard well, you can adjust the turning and sliding sensitivity in the settings.
At some point, the free version of Perfect Grind ends. If you want more, you just need to pay the $3.39 subscription fee to unlock new challenges and even create your own customized skate park. Moreover, that payment also removes ads, which is always a plus.
With over 500,000 downloads on the Play Store, Perfect Grind is one of the most entertaining new Android games. Hop on your skateboard and show your skills by gradually overcoming each challenge and achieving better combos.
