Aqua Moto Racing Utopia reinvigorates the genre of watercraft racing with modern lush graphics and an extensive number of challenging game modes.
Aqua Moto Racing Utopia lets players participate in racing between buoys, acrobatic stunts and other types of aquatic fun competitions in exotic environments around the world. The racing balances high speed with narrow twists and turns, while an intuitive stunt system allows players to perform a wide range of stunts both in the air and on the water.
Gameplay & Vehicles
The game features 3 single player championship divisions. The first division is called Runabout. Runabout is a type of watercraft with the rider in a seated position. In this division the player navigates runabout watercrafts between buoys with the goal of crossing the finish line first.
The next division is called Ski. This division has the same race rules as the first one but instead the watercrafts used are the more nimble “Jet Skis”. These watercrafts have a standing rider position.
The third division is called freestyle. Here the goal is to perform watercraft stunts both on water and in the air. Performing a stunt awards you points and performing many sequential stunts gives you a higher score.
By competing in championships and collecting cash chips in races the player accumulates in game currency that can be spent to purchase one of the games 44 watercrafts.
The game features online races for up to 8 players.
Besides the championship mode and online play there are several other game modes. Custom Race, Freestyle, Time Trial, Leisure, Aqua Moto Hockey, Keep The Flag, King Of The Hill, and Duckling Mama.
