Game Description:

By definition, a 720° is is one of the most daring moves attempted only by the best, where the skater does a full 720-degree twist while soaring through the air. In 720°, the game, players can attempt to perform this move without bodily injury. This is only part of the fantasy world of 720° . .

Unique Action and Game Format
The player portrays the skater who must earn the right to compete in the skateparks of the city and ultimately win the title of champion of the skating world. The action starts with the player in the middle of "Skate City", where all surfaces are skateable --a skateboarders dream world! The player earns tickets for performing skillful skate maneuvers in the city. These tickets allow him to enter the skateparks where he competes against the clock for gold, silver, or bronze medals. "Cash" prizes are awarded to the skater if he qualifies for a medal. After the skatepark competition, the game continues back in the city for more freestyle action. Numerous hazards and obstacles create a busy scenario in the city, and the skater has a limited time to get to another skatepark.
Players can use their "cash" winnings to buy skating equipment from various skate shops located throughout the city. Boards will give the player faster speed. Helmets allow more risk-taking for successful maneuvers. Pads give faster recovery from falls. Shoes provide better height on jumps and quicker starts.

New Controls
Player controls consist of a rotary controller which allows full circular and directional movement. A kick button keeps the player skating, and a jump button is used to "catch air" for higher points. Anything goes in this game, as players learn to make incredible skate maneuvers.

More Visual and Audio Entertainment
720° has a new 25" higher-resolution monitor for better graphics and animation than ever before. Plus, 8" speakers highlight the custom music, sound effects and speech, making the player feel like he's right there in the action.
