Yanya Caballista: City Skater, known in Japan as Yanya Caballista featuring Gawoo (ヤンヤ カバジスタ featuring Gawoo), is an extreme sports skating game for the PlayStation 2. The game is similar to Jet Set Radio in feel and look, but is more of an arcade style game.[citation needed]

Gameplay[edit]

The game was packaged with a fingerboard. The fingerboard was to be placed on top of both of the analogue sticks and would be controlled on top of them to resemble controlling a skate board on its wheels.

The game had 3 different modes; a practice mode, a "ramp" mode, and a campaign mode. Both the practice mode and the ramp mode allowed the player to unlock one of 7 characters. The campaign mode consisted of 5 different stages, divided in sections that unlocked if the player eliminated all Gawoos in the previous section before the countdown timer ran out, which could be avoided by collecting the coins scattered around the level. Once all Gawoos in the level were eliminated the player would have to beat a boss, unusually powerful Gawoos with unique abilities and above average life bars and some sort of protections surrounding them.

Reception[edit]

On release, Famitsu magazine scored the game a 30 out of 40.[1]
