Virtuoso, the new sales and marketing division of Koch Distribution, have announced that they will be launching "Thames Racer" in the UK on Friday 30th March, following on from last year's arcade racing game London Racer. This time the action takes to the water for some James Bond style action, as you pilot a selection of overpowered speedboats along the Thames in London, as well as through the canals of Venice and Amsterdam. Each of the three cities included in the game features a selection of recognisable riverbank landmarks, such as the Rialto Bridge and Marco Polo square in Venice and Tower Bridge and the Tate Gallery in London.

We aren't expecting any miracles, but with all the jumps and obstacles that you would expect (including everything from pleasure boats to house boats) as well as a range of power-ups and rockets to unleash on your unsuspecting opponents, it might be just the thing to pass the weekend without being forced to engage your brain, especially with a mid-range £20 price tag.
