Usually when you try and make something cool, you end up doing the opposite. That almost indefinable quality in a game - its 'X Factor' if you will - is too tricky to pin down, too elusive to accurately quantify.
Which is why when a game comes out with a swagger and a style all of its own, it deserves to be praised. Penny Time might be an advert for an anachronistic plastic skateboard from Australia, but it's also a brilliant blend of endless-runner, rhythm-action, and platformer.
Skate or die
The game casts you as a slacker sort, who's given a magical Penny skateboard that just happens to be able to stop time. It's your job to skate through suburbia, pulling off tricks and racking up points as you do.
A brilliant little skating game, Penny Time is a hugely entertaining title that anyone can enjoy
