This game is a four letter word, namely ♥♥♥♥!
or maybe a divine word and a four letter word, such as HOLY ♥♥♥♥!
In otherwords..... this game is simply amazing. It also might give you a heart attack, or make you feel all giggity on the inside, butterflies in the stomach and such. That's the effect I'm getting right now; something between that and the heart-pounding fight or flight adrenaline rush of a century (a lil hyperbole there).
You fly in the smoothest riding, touchiest to control aircraft in the universe cruising at lightning speed. Every crash brings both a sense of dread and elation! After awhile, crashing becomes insanely fun, actually! In this game, unlike sex, lasting 3 minutes is a good thing! What feels even more good than the ejaculatory experience of exploding into objects with your 'aircraft' is the experience of weaving impossibly through obstacles, or richocheting off of them to extreme heights only to be thrown down into a chaotically destructive maze of impossibility. BUY THIS ♥♥♥♥. It's also similar to Super Hexagon and I thought it would be useful to compare the two, since I am so in love with that game as well, so.....
THE BREAKDOWN: (Comparison of Race the Sun and Super Hexagon)
On the annoying scale: I would rank it slightly under SuperHexagon which is a game that should also be in your library if you end up being into this game, or if you haven't already bought it.... SH, as it stands is the most annoying/frustrating game of all time. RtS: 8 , SH: 10
Challenge/Difficulty: I would have to say about the same thing here, but it's a close match. RtS: 9, SH: 10
Fun Factor: BOTH 10's!
Visual Appeal: This is where Race the Sun takes the lead, with a score that is relative to this type of very minimalist arcade game: RtS: 10, SH: 8
Music Annoyingness: 10 - 10
Mind-♥♥♥♥ing Awesomeness: 10-10
