Shine Runner brings motorboat racing to Windows, Windows Phone 8.1

From the makers of Riptide GP 2, Shine Runner is a graphically impressive boating game where you get to race through the backwoods bayou on a motorboat. The game is now available on Windows 8.1 and Windows Phone 8.1 where you will embark on a 10-day race for profit and glory while avoiding cops and obstacles.

Packed with realistic swamp boat physics and gorgeous HD imagery, Shine Runner immerses you into your race.

Throw your flat-bottomed fanboat into high gear and slip and slide through the muddy waters of the backwoods bayou. Smash and crash through a destructible world filled with rickety swamp shacks, fishin' boats, chicken coops, gators, and more. Pack your cargo hold to the brim with moonshine, tobacky, snake oil and other contraband and then sell 'em to the highest bidder in a rampagin' 10-day race for profit and glory. Just make sure you keep an eye out for Smokey–the more notorious you get, the more cops will come gunnin' for you.

  • enjoyed riptide MUCH better...now if MS would give us Hydro Thunder Hurricane on WP8.... I no longer have a WP7 device to play that :(
  • I am waiting for the beach buggy racing blitz , completed all the levels of the beach buggy racing weeks ago.
  • It's still amazing the graphics and game play they can pack into a phone...
  • Wow! Vector Unit arrived to WP with a lot of their games. Nice !
  • Yeap! Not available here in Brazil!!
  • Coitado Guilherme :)
  • You're always here complaining about games not available in Brazil, but you can definitely change your region to USA and install these games. In fact you can install apps from both regions using the same account. Is it annoying? Sure, you will need a couple reboots here and there, but I'm doing that since 2012 (Lumia 800) and I'm pretty sure this works.
  • Oh Gosh!! Let me state this for the thousand time: I do not do this for me, I do for the whole community of "normal people" that do not know they can do this, or even do not want to! I already helped to bring hundreds of games to Brazil.
  • You are a hero bro
    Don't mind the complainers
    BigUps to ya
  • I remember playing it on android a while back ... Kinda cool, but the graphics were great
  • Motorboating? Can't be what I'm thinking of.
  • I read the title twice as well...
  • Long life to Muddy Waters!
  • It's good to see more Vector Unit games on WP.  I spent way too much time playing this one on Android.  It's equal parts stupid and fun.
  • Had this on my ol' droid phone.
  • Purchased!  Love this game, though, be warned, the scoring is completely random...its just a good fun game.  Have it on android and now WP.  Glad they've come over!
  • I purchased this game on my laptop and now free in my wp love ❤ universal apps;)
