One-Button Racing Mechanic:
Press the right arrow to accelerate, release to brake. If you release the gaz on a wave, you'll stick to it. If you keep the gaz pressed, you'll jump off the waves. Releasing the gaz while in the air will make you fall faster.
Obstacles and Power-Ups:
If air drag makes staying on water quicker, sometimes it's best to jump. It could be for grabbing a power-up, avoiding an obstacle or a tricky set of waves.
Fighting with opponent brings a whole new dimension to the game. It not only adds action, but also tactical aspects, which quickly becomes a key for victory.
