Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 1 + 2: How To Unlock Characters Including Jack Black, And Is Spider-Man In It?

Bad news, webheads.

Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 1 + 2, the remastered pairing of the Birdman's first two virtual outings, is out now.

The game is a faithful remake of the PS1 classics, and is a return to form after some disappointing entries in the franchise.

However, there's one thing missing...

THPS 1 + 2: How To Unlock New Characters

Unfortunately, there aren't many unlockable characters in the game - we know, crazy right!?

Jack Black/Officer Dick

The biggest one is Tenacious D frontman and all-round talented man Jack Black, known by the moniker "Officer Dick" here.

To unlock him, you'll have to complete every challenge for your created skater, of which there are 24.

Alien

There's also the Roswell Alien, who you can unlock by grabbing all the alien plushies.

Find out how here.

Considering the franchise has offered the likes of Darth Maul in the past, we're a teeny bit disappointed.

The biggest loss is Spider-Man, who was unlockable in the second game thanks to then-developer Neversoft working on Spider-Man titles, too.

That means even using cheat codes won't get the webhead, even if you remember them from way back when.

It's a shame we won't be able to pull off his web-slinging board tricks, as it'd look great in 2020!

That said, the wall-crawler is coming to Marvel's Avengers, but you'll have to play it on PS4 to unlock him next year.

That's not to say there isn't a hefty dose of silliness though, with a skeleton character available for Digital Deluxe Edition pre-order customers.
