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.
In Tropical Heat, using power boosts the speed of your Jet Ski. Boosting your speed not only helps you race faster, but allows you to do bigger jumps. Your power slowly fills up when you are not using it, but there are faster ways to fill up. Pick up power coins, pass through power rings, make big jumps which allow you to perform tricks.
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. Such as achievements for doing a high jump, a combo trick, or even earning a million points. Pressing ‘p’ while racing pauses the game and opens the achievements panel so you can see how many of the achievements you have earned.
You can play Tropical Heat in 3 difficulty settings. Easy, Normal and Extreme. If you are new to games or just want to a relaxing experience, then set the difficulty to Easy. Otherwise, play on Normal and win all of the races to unlock Extreme. Playing on Extreme makes everything more difficult. The waves are bigger and faster, the coins are harder to pick up, the ramps are narrower, and rings spin while moving up and down. It’s Tropical Heat for players who want an extreme challenge.
