You are a solar craft. The sun is your death timer. Hurtle towards the sunset at breakneck speed in a futile race against time. Delay the inevitable by catching energy boosts which reverse the setting sun - if only for a moment.

We solved the Android problem for Race The Sun



Just posted about this on our website and shared it on Twitter, Facebook, etc.

We have been working on an Android version of Race the Sun, and it will be ready for release on Google Play soon. We are still working out the details of a release date and exactly what devices we can support, but we know that the game will have the same features as the iOS version, including leaderboards, achievements, and a world that regenerates daily.

Android Beta Testers Wanted



We will be running a closed beta for those who want to test the game early. You can sign up here if you would like to ​apply to be a beta tester.

Thanks to everyone who has requested an Android version — we are super pumped that we can finally make it happen.

About This Game

You are a solar craft. The sun is your death timer. Hurtle towards the sunset at breakneck speed in a futile race against time. Delay the inevitable by catching energy boosts which reverse the setting sun - if only for a moment.

Race The Sun is inspired by arcade games of the past with a focus on highscores, short game sessions, and a sense of pure fun mingled with a nerve-wracking tension. The rules are simple: don't crash, stay in the light, and don't slow down!

Key Features


  • Race at insane speeds through an infinite procedural world that changes every day
  • Complete objectives to unlock upgrades and level-up your ship (25 levels)
  • Customize your ship with attachments like faster turning and decals
  • Built-in editor that allows you to create your own endless worlds
  • "World portals" that transport you to user-created worlds
  • Unlockable ultra-hard world called Apocalypse

Amazing game, it's a wonderful feeling to think you have completed an area and always have potential to get farther and then POOF, the next day there is a new map to solve and get good at. It feels as if it is evolving and you have to evolve too to get better in order to defeat it.

Race The Sun is an exciting game that provides cheap and easy entertainment.

I first discovered this game for free on my PS4. Now that I no longer have a console, I rushed to buy this game on my PC moments after getting an urge to play again.

Although repetitive, you'll find yourself addicted and thirsty to beat yourself and others scores. It's great to share with friends or jump into while you have some time to kill.

If you consider yourself one with exceptional reflexes, I highly recommend you give this a try.

I love this game and it looks amazing on triple monitors. Highly recommended! I am running a GTX 960 with three 1920x1080 monitors and it is smooth as silk. Tough game but addictive. I keep wanting to try "just one more time" to get a little farther or beat my score.

Very fun if you want to kill time for 10 minutes or up to a couple of hours. Challenging, exciting, and pretty decent all around.

I got this game for free but was not asked to review or even play. That said, I have enjoyed it quite a bit. With unique levels every day to race it's a challenge to get as far as you can. Death can happen with the slightest mistake and it will happen often. Every death leads to the desire to keep going...to try again. Just when you think you have it figured out another challenge or new thing is thrown in your path. Can be played in either first or third person view...I can't help but wonder how it would be in VR.

Very stylish score attack game with fitting music.

It starts out rather easy but quickly becomes very challenging.

For reasons that i do not fully understand, i loved it and hated it at the same time. Something about the gameplay made me go crazy.

Pros:
  • It becomes more addictive as you continue to play
  • The maps are very large
  • The music really gets you

Cons:
  • The dificulty of the game is not very balanced
  • It can get you bored before the "good part" of the game even begins

To sum up: it`s an interesting game with OK graphics that you either hate or love.
It is not the average racing game and the colours, lights as well as shadows are ver well placed.
I really enjoyed the experience of playing a fun racing game with lots of obstacles and missions, never letting the sun out of your sight.
It requieres concentration, fast reflexes and it can be played as long as you want, because you decide when to stop, there is no finish line, just how long you can go avoidding collision.


8/10
