Riptide is a simple game in which you move your avatar (on a surfboard) from side to side to collect coins while dodging obstacles like islands, coral, and whales (see screenshot below). You can use your coins to buy different boards for 55 to 541 coins. If you don't want to wait to collect that many, you can spend some real coin on in-game coin purchases of 100 to 300 coins for a dollar per hundred.
This game does come with a fatal flaw - the avatar can be moved only within a narrow band down the center of the screen. This must be a coding error by the game developer because it means you have no ability to collect a large percentage of the available coins. Even worse, you'll eventually find a whale wide enough to block the area in which you can maneuver, forcing an early end to the game. Unless the developer fixes this issue, we don't see much point in adding this game to your Roku.
