Aqua Moto Racing is an attractive, addictive, and highly replayable 3D Jet Ski racing game--and one of the best games of its kind available on the iPhone and iPod Touch. You control your Jet Ski with simple, intuitive controls: you tilt your device right or left to turn (the farther you tilt, the tighter the turn), and you touch the left side of the screen to brake and the right side to "boost." This temporary speed increase uses the "boost" meter, which you recharge by passing buoys closely and performing stunts off of ramps. Performing tricks requires you to enter "Stunt Mode" by tilting your device up while in the air.

Aqua Moto Racing has three different environments and 18 tracks that can played forward and backward, in either a Time Trial mode or through seven championship circuits with varying difficulty levels. Aqua Moto Racing shows excellent balance across the different modes, with challenging gameplay that ramps up smoothly. Combined with extras like on-the-fly "tuning" of your Jet Ski (with points you earn in championship races) and the ability to download "ghosts" of World Record holders, the quality and depth of this game make it an excellent value for racer fans.
