Hmmm...
To do:

Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 4 does away with the time limit, giving you all the time you need to explore, and sees you getting your tasks by interacting with others.

Because I’m TNT! I’m dynamite! TNT, and I will win the fight! TNT, I’m a power load! TNT, WATCH ME EXPLODE!!!

Debug Mode

Having debug mode will enable extra menu options, mainly in the pause menu and in the options menu. This puts Debug Menu and Goto Restart in the root of the pause menu. Inside the Options menu , this also puts Cheats: DO NOT TEST.

Goto Restart allows selection of spawn points to spawn from.
