True Skate is one of the most popular extreme sports games on mobile. It is praised for its skateboarding authenticity as well as the full control the player has. Similar to the classic Tech Deck toys, you use your fingers to move your board, except on-screen, of course.

You can skate in numerous parks around the United States and the rest of the world. You can play freely or play in some modes and go for a high score. These parks are all well-designed with all of the ramps and grinds being well-placed throughout each one.

We gave you a few basic True Skate tips on playing the game, so here, we'll give you a few extra tips to help you. We would call these "Advanced" but I wouldn't necessarily call them that. There are just a few small things that you can do that may give you a little help from a visual standpoint.

Tweak The Cameras

Sometimes in a game, a good camera angle can help you focus a bit better. The same goes for True Skate. You can easily change your camera view to a few different options. Feel free to mess around until you feel like you have an angle that's most comfortable to you.

Perhaps you're fine with the default view and if so, then great. If not, then definitely try out a different look. You'd be surprised how much of a difference camera angles can make. One example would be in the NBA 2K basketball games. You have different options but the most popular is the classic "2K Cam" which allows you to see the court in front of you better.

This can also be true for skateboarding games. Maybe you want to see the skate park better. Or maybe you want more of a close-up view of your board. Whatever you choose, it should be something that makes your experience a little better. Could help boost your play too.

Show or Don't Show Legs

There's an interesting little setting in True Skate that's also visual-based. When on the menu, you can decide if you want to have legs being shown or not on your skateboard. In some ways, it looks kind of funny as if it's ghostly legs of some kind.

But, you can turn this one if you feel it gives you a good reference point when skating. It's all really just a visual preference. If it helps you, then definitely feel free to turn it on. You can see feet placement and how the feet move when performing tricks.

This will give you an idea of how you should use your fingers to perform the tricks. And for some, maybe it just looks cool. For others, it may just look funny. But it's something that you can freely experiment with and see if it provides any visual aid for you.

Adjust the Swipe Sensitivity

If you're feeling like the swiping of the screen is not on par with what you're looking for, then there's a nifty setting for this. On the settings page, you can tweak the sensitivity of your swiping when you skate around the different parks.

This will affect how hard you should swipe on your screen to gain speed. Cranking up the sensitivity will require swipes that aren't as hard to go at full speed. Obviously, that means lowering it, which means that the swipes will have a heavier feeling and you'll have to swipe harder.

You very well could be fine with the default setting and if you are then that's great. However, if you think changing this setting can give you a bit of an edge, then go for it. Maybe you're just curious and end up liking the new adjustment. This is a nice little setting that can really help smoothen the experience if needed.
