Riptide GP 2

Riptide is a classic jet ski racing game on all major mobile platforms - BlackBerry 10 included. We first took a look at it on video back in February 2013 and the game still remains on my BlackBerry for when I have the urge.

Amazon have selected the sequel as their 'free app of the day' which I was rather excited to see. I loaded the game up on my BlackBerry Z30 and swiftly took to the water where all was well.

As usual with the Amazon Appstore - sometimes their free app of the day does vary depending on location. If you're seeing something else let us know? Also, If you are a Q series user I'm not sure how well this one will work but you can let us know in the comments if you download it.

I pinched the following text from Google Play. I don't know if all features apply for us BlackBerry 10 users as I only downloaded the game a few minutes ago. I suspect with it being an Android one we may well miss out on some though.

Game features:

  • ONLINE MULTI-PLAYER - Show off your skills and your custom-tuned hydro jet in 4-way online battles with friends and players around the world!

  • CHALLENGE YOUR FRIENDS - Race against your friends' best times in the exciting VR Challenge mode.
