The original Riptide has been out for a couple of years, and now Vector Unit has released its sequel, dubbed Riptide GP: Renegade, onto all supported Android devices. The wave racing gameplay has been carried over, in that players are racing hydrojets, and are awarded bonuses for successfully performing stunts while in mid-air.

Featuring very detailed high-definition visuals and effects, Riptide GP: Renegade puts players in the role of a hydro jet racer who has been framed and banned from the professional Riptide GP league. In order to restore your reputation as the best racer on the planet you must compete in illegal races around the city. Since the races you find yourself in are not sanctioned, you will not only have to race against other participants but also evade the police who have their own hydro jet bikes. The combination of being both a racer and a fugitive is one of the things that makes Riptide GP: Renegade a refreshingly different take on traditional arcade-style racing.
Vector Unit, which started off as a two-man team making epic racing games, has revealed that the newest addition to their Riptide GP franchise today, called Riptide GP: Renegades, is almost ready for launch.
