Key Features

* Ride the Tide! Control the ocean itself to keep your runaway jet-ski from taking damage. Avoid obstacles to go faster and further and beat the high score!
* Persistent scoring system keeps track of player records, including longest distance achieved, most points gained, and average speed, which are combined into a final score! A local top-ten leaderboard challenges players to reach the top!
* In-game homemade physics engine maximizes the fun and mayhem of the game experience by providing real-time physics simulation, creating interactive objects and particle systems.
* Ramping difficulty ensures that novice players will not be faced with difficult objects right away. The longer the player survives, the more difficult the objects will become.
* Extensive game options let players customize their game by choosing not only visual quality, but quality of particle systems, custom cursor appearance, and even player color.%uFEFF
