Our friends over at Pocket Gamer UK have run a preview of Riptide GP that offers some tantalizing new details about the game and a couple of exclusive new screenshots.
The biggest new announcement about Riptide GP's gameplay is stunting as a core part of the game mechanic. Here's how it works:
Every race track in Riptide GP features lots of opportunities for grabbing huge air. Not just ramps, but massive rolling waves that -- if you catch them just right -- vault you high above the track. When you're in the air, you can use swipe gestures on the tablet or phone screen to pull off tricks like Superman, Can-Can, flips and tabletops. Pull the trick off successfully before landing and you earn boost. Splash into the water mid-trick and...well, the results are painful.
