Resolution Interactive's Aqua Moto Racing has finally made it into the App Store with both Lite and full versions. We previewed the game back in January after a gameplay video had been posted by the company.

Meanwhile the company has just posted this new Trailer video:

The full version of the game offers the following features:

  • 7 Championships ranging from easy to extremely hard
  • 18 different tracks also playable in reversed mode
  • Time Trial mode with Gold, Silver and Bronze Target Times
  • 3 true-to life environments: Emerald Bay, Everglades and Long Beach Port
  • Ghost Play: Download and race against the World's Best
  • Tuning of Top Speed, Acceleration, Steering and Boost
  • Online World Ranking

Meanwhile the Lite version gives you a taste with 1 Championship at Novice difficulty and 3 tracks and provides a very good feel for the game. Early reactions to the Lite version are very positive. The full version just came out tonight. Give it a try.

    Very, very good implementation of tilt controls. Smooth frame rate. Thisis how forward progress on the Appstore should look.

    I really find it very interesting, what different people consider as smooth. Regarding the postings here and the reviews in the AppStore, even Nitro Kart 3D seems to have a smooth frame rate...

    While I see that ZEN Pinball, Ferrari GT, GTS World Racing and Aqua Moto Racing offer a __constant__ frame rate without a decrease, the frame rate itself is low and not smooth. Fastlane Street Racing has a smooth frame rate. Even Gameloft agreed to this and said, that Fastlane offers a higher framerate than Ferrari.

    With Aqua Moto Racing, the frame rate is constant, but not high enough to satisfy me. I also don't feel the speed.

    I for one thing am sick of "Tilt" steering. It sucks and the physics are never right. Steering has to have "slide through your fingers action" if it doesn't then its just nauseating. I tend not to buy any of these "tilt" steering games anymore. Any thoughts? BTW, the game looks great I don't want you to think I'm dissing the dev of this app.

    The game is really great. I loved Clusterball Arcade so I just got this and even if you don't like accelerometer steering, you will love this. Resolution AB gets accelerometer sensitivity just right. This is so easy to control and the great graphics, great controls, and a tad bit of strategy because of the sharp turns and boosts make this a "must have"

    Finished the championship in the lite version.
    Looks beautiful, but was NO challenge. First place
    on every track in the first attempt. After the first
    round, you can win every track with closed eyes.
    It really get's boring to me. But it's really really
    beautiful.

    Played it a bit more, I have to say it's -really- nice. The tilt steering for once is amazingly accurate, and it's a gorgeous game. I just wish there was more to it. It -is- pretty easy, but still a fantastic game.

    Kia and your personal robot,

    Did you guys play only the lite version? Do note that it ONLY has easy championships. The full version has easy--> extremely hard. Drop some cash and check it out then report back. ; )

    really cool looking game, but i agree, its easy and just not all that fun....i guess with upgrades and harder settings it might be better but as the lite version stands, im not convinced to buy the full..

    I bought the full version, and it's offers some really good gameplay. The lite version which I tried is relatively simple, but in the full version, you have various levels which make gameplay more difficult. The framerate and the graphics are great both in play and visually speaking. As with anything, the more you play this, the better you get handling your craft. I wouldn't let the lite version fool you into thinking Aqua Moto is too easy. If anything, it sort of reminds me of Days of Thunder because everyone is banging into each other, but Aqua Moto plays better.

  • SalsaMD

    I agree, the full version is a lot more challenging. Not sure why people don't read the App store description. Again, the lite version ONLY has an EASY level. From the response here though, perhaps the developer should have included difficulty levels in the lite version as well as some users appears to have sunk into a complacent ennui after playing the lite version...

    yeah, its not about reading the app store description...its about being unimpressed with the lite version.
    to be able to whiz through it in 5 minutes isnt compelling me to purchase it.
    there should be at least a little replay value in a light version....im not left wanting more...

    @t: lite versions are always a balancing act for developers because you want to give enough of a taste for the full version without giving away too much. In Aqua Moto's case, may be what SalsaMD suggests makes sense--include a difficult level so people understand how challenging the game can be.

    @Joe

    I absolutely disagree with you. Accelerometer controls are the preferred control method for racers on this platform. Yes, I know that there are "touch/swipe only" advocates, but, honestly...you're in the minority when it comes to racers on iTouch/Phone. I do feel that there should be a "touch steering" option in all racers on this platform to placate those of you who don't "get" motion sensing, but I'd rather not have "touch only". And the only way motion sensing steering is "nauseating" is if there's no screen tilt option (so the screen tilts to always be level to the player when the device is tilted) or if you're a complete spaz who moves the device around way too much. Remember: very slight movements are all that is necessary.

    @Spiffyone,

    That's cool, I'm 35 and have been playing video games all my life. I accept your comments and you make some valid points but I still feel the games that you have to constantly move your phone to control your movements are annoying and very conspicuous. I like games like "bike or Die 2" "black mamba" "Slotz racer" these are very simple yet changeling.

    I just gave the lite version a run through, and i've got to say that it's pretty awesome and the graphics are definitely at PSP level. It's truly remarkable and is great to show friends (i love the waves and everything is in brilliant 3D). The game play is really responsive, ergonomical and fun, and that was only in the lite version :) I'm definitely purchasing the full version.

    Racer wise, I've enjoyed Cro-Mag, Ferrari, Thunder but have found that I get bored of them quickly. This for some reason just keeps making me come back again and again. Being a Nintendo fan and owning both the previous wave race games makes me just love this. The only thing missing from this (compared to them) is different wave strengths. It's a seriously fun game and love having time trial laps and comparing to online leaderboards - I think once I've completed the game, that will keep me coming back again (like Mario Kart does). I highly recommend this game but don't expect some ultra fast Need for Speed graphics wizzing by.
