Earlier this week the developers at Vector Unit released the follow up to what is possibly still one of my favorite games to show off mobile gaming. And that is Riptide GP. Tuesday the developers finally released the much anticipated Riptide GP 2 with tons of new tricks, improved graphics all around, and plenty of water-filled racer tracks. All you fans will certainly want to give this a try.

Tuesday they released Riptide GP 2, and for full details and a preview of it running on the high-powered NVIDIA Tegra 4 quad-core be sure and check out our hands on coverage. Now that we’ve had almost the entire week to enjoy this brand new game, there’s no doubt that it’s better than the original, and should surely be the game you play all weekend long.

Riptide GP 2 a high-speed jetski action racing game and everything about it has been improved over the original. From realtime lighting, enhanced graphics and more this will show the true graphics power of today’s mobile gaming. We have full online multiplayer modes, a new career mode, 9 different jetski’s that are highly upgradable, 25 different tricks and stunts, and full support for new Google Play Games services. That means leaderboards, achievements, inviting friends to your races and much more.


Riptide GP 2 appears to support almost every Android device that’s been released as of late, just don’t expect top-tier graphics if you have an aging device. For those with a powerful Galaxy S4 or HTC One, it should have no problems, and playing it on my new Nexus 7 has been awesome on the full HD display. Vector Unit improved the graphics with high-res support for 1920 x 1200 tablets like the Nexus 7, and did a lot of work to make things even better when used on an NVIDIA Tegra 4 device like the upcoming NVIDIA SHIELD.

This game will surely be one we use to test graphics and performance for months and months to come, and the gameplay makes it 100% worth the price too. So how much? It will run you $2.99 to enjoy this high octane, fast-paced, water racing game to the max. A few other suggestions for the weekend of gaming is True Skate, and the newly updated Cut The Rope with tons of new levels. Enjoy any previous weekend games from the timeline below, then get Riptide GP 2 and fire up those engines!
