We are a small independent studio. We have spent the last 2 years developing Tropical Heat. We love old school arcade racing games, but we also like a little bit of the physics defying fun in games like SSX. Tropical Heat is all about building up power to jump into big air to perfom as many tricks as you can while still keeping an eye on winning the race. We hope that you enjoy playing the Tropical Heat demo with your friends! If you enjoy playing, please rate the game!
We made Tropical Heat, because we wanted to play a game that made us feel like we had left the real life rat race and escaped to remote tropical islands where we could bask in the sunshine and feel the rhythm of the ocean waves as we raced jet skis with our friends just for the pure joy of it. That's how we feel when we play Tropical Heat. We hope you feel the same way when you play!
In Tropical Heat you can customize your character and Jet Ski. Play as a young man or woman. Choose your character's swimsuit, sunglasses, hair color and hair style.
There are 5 days of races in Tropical Heat Each day there is a morning, an afternoon and either a sunset or a night racing heat. Win each race to unlock the next. Win all of the races to unlock Extreme mode. Race either against computer opponents or against other players in Multiplayer.
Tropical Heat is not just a race to the finish line. You're also competing to get the most points, the most tricks, and the biggest jumps. At the end of each race, you can see how well you scored.
Big jumps into the air allow you to do tricks. In Tropical Heat, there are two types of tricks. Tricks performed with a Jet Ski, like a flip, and tricks performed on a Jet Ski, like a hand stand. Get big enough air and you can do more than one trick or even trick combos, like flipping the Jet Ski while doing a handstand.
Ramps are not the only way to get big jumps in Tropical Heat. Using power to boost your speed, you can dive under the water which causes you to jump back out of the water. The deeper you dive the higher your jump out of the water. Dive deep enough under big waves and you can even jump over the corner of an island.
In addition to winning races and getting the best scores, there are dozens of achievements to earn while playing Tropical Heat.
You can race against the computer in Tropical Heat or against other people in Multiplayer. You can join a game or start your own, competing with up to 8 other players. Show everyone you are the best in the world, or just hang out together enjoying tropical paradise.
Listen to most of Tropical Heat's awesome in-game music...
This is great music for Jet Ski riding, but also is nice for coding, or general listening. Some of our second jobs are as DJs or musicians, and we're very picky about what we play.
Choose from Chill, Latin, or Upbeat music stations, or my favorite, just click play on Mixed and enjoy the long randomized playlist.
If you love one of the music pieces, let us know in the comments. Most of this music is licensed, and we may help you find a piece.
Lowest Rated (7 agree) 1/10
Not only have the developers of this game erased my review, they seem to also have erased my rating of their game. So it seems that they are not satisfied to delete any comments that raise issues, but now even ratings and reviews are not safe from their attempts to control the discussion of their game, and the very restrictive DRM that will leave you with nothing to show for your money, should the company fold, or just decide they no longer want to run the servers. The game itself is a fairly mediocre…
