Developed by Specular Interactive and published by Raw Thrills, H2Overdrive is a new powerboat racer that has been termed the 'spiritual successor to Hydro Thunder'. Players race powerboats around crazy courses filled with jumps and power-ups, using a throttle and steering wheel to control their boat.
Adding depth to the gameplay is the leveling system, with players earning points after each race. Players use the points to level their boat from level 1 to level 40, earning new abilities as they level up. Game information is stored using the keypad password entry system on the machine.
