Looks great... but can any obstacle stop you at all?

Yeah.. i think the obstacles are there just to impede you from achieving super speed. So who knows, maybe some obstacles make you stop dead in the water

Here's the description from the site:

Yup - it's all physics based. You can push obstacles (other than rocks) but they'll slow you down, and count against your "dodge'm" score. Each level is scored based on your finish time, yum yums eaten, obstacles dodged, and overall skill. You get awards for each of those attributes (bronze, silver, gold, perfect) and have to accumulate a certain number/type of awards to unlock new level tiers. Each level is also has a time limit that you have to beat to unlock the next level.

The controls are simply tilt to steer, tap to shoot a "water jet" (that's what's pushing the obstacles out of the way in the trailer).
