Yesterday, Riptide GP 2 came out for Android.

Tonight, Riptide GP 2 will race onto the UK and US App Stores. At around midnight, in fact.

Vector Unit's new game is the sequel to the Bronze Award-winning jet ski racer Riptide GP, which debuted on Tegra-powered Android devices and iOS gizmos two years ago.

Anyway. In Riptide GP 2, you'll be able to have a crack at a full career, earning XP to upgrade your super-powered hydro jet, learning new stunts, mastering fresh tricks, and increasing the skill of your damp-skinned rider.

There are different types of race to compete in here, too. Oh, and there's a full suite of online multiplayer modes this time around.

Furthermore, there are 25 different stunts to unlock. By performing these stunts mid-race, you fill up your boost bar.

Before I forget, I must mention that you can swap between touch and tilt controls. There. Said it.

Riptide GP 2 will splash onto the UK and US App Stores at around midnight this evening. It'll set you back £1.99 / $2.99.
