720 Degrees, or 720°, is a 1986 arcade game by Atari Games. 720°, a skateboarding game, is notable in that it is the first extreme sports video game, and has a unique timed structure that requires the player score points in order to keep the game going. The game's name comes from the ~ultimate~ trick, turning a full 720° (two complete circles) in the air after jumping off a ramp. 720° has the player controlling a skateboarder ripping around a middle-class neighborhood. By doing jumps and tricks, the player can eventually acquire enough points to compete at a skate park. The game requires a lot of coordination and practice but if you master the controls it can be quite fun. Most of the time, you play from isometric view. 720 is a glimpse into the future of skateboarding games. It wasn't until the three dimensional era that this genre took off, but the idea has remained the same: your goal is to do tricks and interact with the environment in your own style. The game's catchphrase inspired another popular skating video game, Electronic Arts' Skate or Die!, in 1987.
