Developed and published by Activision, Tony Hawk's Downhill Jam is a skateboarding video game. It is named after a level in the Tony Hawk's Pro Skater series. It was released in 2006 for the Nintendo DS, Game Boy Advance, and Wii, but was initially a timed exclusive for Nintendo. Despite its limited release on other platforms, it remains one of Tony Hawk's best-selling games.
The gameplay is primarily focused on downhill racing, with the added benefit of trick attack modes. Unlike most other games in the series, players can respawn at the top of the mountain for the final run. There's also plenty of exploration to be had during timed runs. This makes the game a great option for fans of the downhill genre. Here's a look at some of the key features of the game:
The game is fairly straightforward, although some Tony Hawk fans will complain that it is too easy.
