Update: February 22nd, 2016 8:36am PST: Just a quick update regarding the pricing of OlliOlli 2. At the time of this article being written, the price was $0.99.

OlliOlli was popular because of its tough-as nails gameplay, dope soundtrack, great controls and tons of tricks to pull off. Keep in mind, that OlliOlli is still selling for $12.99 in the Play Store. So, to find that the sequel which is just as good, selling for $.99 is quite a deal.

Yes, this is a game that takes practice and skill, but you are rewarded with a sense of accomplishment when you reach the end of a level, and you have completed all the goals on that level.
