Being an arcade simulator videogame developed by Vicarious Visions and published by Activision, Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1+2 will bring you into the world of skateboard tricks. It was inspired by the legendary Tony Hawk skateboarder renowned for the mind-blowing mastery of skateboards. The game itself is plenty for levels and tricks to be completed for unlocking new challenges further down the gameplay. The higher level means harder tricks to perform around the skate park, so make sure you finger out the keyboard or joystick buttons to get the most sophisticated combos. The scores you earn depend on how great you’ve been whirling your skateboard. Trick sequence, complexity, uniqueness, degrees rotated, and other metrics are analyzed by AI to generate points that one has deserved. The game is saturated with constantly updating and special tricks that are yet to be open by players throughout the gameplay. Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1+2 is officially playable on all popular platforms barring Mac. Despite this is dismaying indeed, we are going to show how to launch it on macOS regardless.

You need to set up a dual boot of Windows and Mac via BootCamp. BootCamp allows users to choose the system to work in on startup, however, you won’t be able to switch between systems like in Parallels. You will need to reboot your machine every time you switch from Mac to Windows and vice versa. Remember that Mac is just a computer, that uses common processors, RAM, disks, and other components. So you can install Windows on Mac by allocating disc space of a minimum of 64 Gb (to be able to run Windows and a couple of games). To set up Windows via BootCamp, please, do the following:
For OS X El Capitan 10.11 or later
Mention, that for MacOS versions prior to OS X El Capitan 10.11 you will need to create bootable Windows USB.
- Download Windows ISO file

- Define the Windows partition size choose downloaded Windows ISO file
- Format Windows partition and go through all Windows installation steps
- When Windows boots for the first time follow on-screen instructions to install Boot Camp and Windows support software (drivers)
