About Skyline Skaters:

In this adrenaline-fueled endless runner, players must avoid police capture and dangerous pitfalls between skyscrapers while trying to collect as many coins and power-ups as they can. Players can choose between five different characters - Matt, Christy, Barry, Mia, Kuro, Pepe, and now Ernie - each with special abilities, such as triple jump, shield, magnet power-up or grinding bonus. Skaters also have a choice of 25 different upgradeable skateboard types, in addition to the new Kick Scooters, that offer various bonuses in terms of score and how many coins can be collected. Special boards also have capabilities to increase the coin collection exponentially when skaters hit a streak of coins in-game, and others reward players based on how many friends they have. Skyline Skaters even has a special night/day cycle, which coincides with real time.
