- Debut: 1996
You’d be surprised how long-lasting a game like Aqua Jet has become. Namco released the game in 1996, where it became a hit that stood the test of time in arcades. Most of the time, an arcade would have some sort of video game version of a Seadoo for you to operate as you played the game. Due to coming out in 1996, gaming had already gotten to the point where a game could be completely 3D with its graphics. However, they also tried to make the operation of your Seadoo true to life (as one could). Aqua Jet as a game was pretty simple. You operated your Seadoo controller in a race on the water where you’d be able to hit ramps for specific awards. The goal is to win the race, but the course allowed you to kinda take your own path to get there.
