About

In Race the Sun you control a spaceship powered by solar energy. You have to dodge objects on your way, for example, from laser beams, other ships and various obstacles, while collecting blue pyramids that will boost the player. The game will end only when you either crash into something, die, or when the sun goes down. The ship's speed remains constant until the ship remains under direct sunlight, but if the ship falls into shadow or collides with an object, the ship's speed will drop. You have to fly through the landscape with abstract shapes and obstacles of varying complexity. Levels are procedurally generated and divided into separate regions, and each contains its own set of tests. The game presents three primary levels: the standard level, the level of "Apocalypse", in which the player moves faster through more difficult tests, and an obstacle course in the form of a maze. These regions and levels change daily for all players, and the online scoreboard allows users to compare their results with others.

Here you will experience the deepest Fear of Dusk. Actually, the Picture couldn't be more dreamlike. A wonderful Sunset in a mostly picturesque Mountain Backdrop. Coupled with the Feeling of Gliding through this Backdrop ... However, at Hyperspeed. To Enjoy the Outside World of its Glider, one comes only to a limited extent. Automatically, within a given Time, the Maps are recreated, which must then be completed during a certain Time (24h) before a new Map arrives and even more important before the Sun disappears behind the horizon during the Attempt to master these Maps. In addition to these Maps, there is a Level Editor for own Maps, down to the smallest Detail, a Workshop and Recommendations of User maps. The Control is done via Keyboard or Controller. Besides using Left-tare law and Powerup, there are no other Buttons in the Game. There are no Blemishes on The Sterling. It is absolutely precise! Basically, the Game is an absolute Relaxation Game, despite the High Speed. The Maps can be learned very quickly, but still demanding every time in a new Measure and for spontaneous Excursions, Stunts and Crashes always inviting. I highly recommend this Game, with the Tip, "Try it really with Coziness!" 10/10 Multilinguale Steamgroup for Hyperspeedrunners and Friends Feel free to join and write, discuss, recommend and find opponents for every Type of Runnerames.

I love this game to the point of spending hours. The graphics, dynamics, landscapes, movements, everything is superb. I am a little frustrated that the daily rank has stopped working several weeks ago as if the publisher's server was offline.

Excellent fluidity and pleasant geometric universe but playability too difficult to enjoy a race from time to time. It takes hours to get up to the challenges that can advance in the game. It lacks a training mode to have fun without spitting every 30 seconds ...

Really not all the money worth. I think you can play incredibly good games for 39kr. This is certainly not one of them. Had it cost 7kr had been ok, but it really is a game where it takes a long time before you advance. Moreover, it is realistic that there is only t pace. For one could have advantageously made the game such that one gradually rose in the pace.

Difficult, every level is different every time, every day different worlds. As soon as you realize how precise and precise the control (yet control) works, the challenge is to get out of the level before it gets dark ... Really worth the 5 euros. Works great on my iPhone6 ​​and fantastic on my iPad Air. Keep up the great work guys. Love it!

The title actually says it all. After a short time, the game becomes so difficult that any progress is made impossible. Apart from that, the game would have to be much more complex for the price. In summary: For the price, the game is a shame. 0 stars. Get good (wanted to give zero stars, but was not possible, thx app store for freedom of speech: *)

The game deserves five paintings: It is faithful version mac / pc, both on graphics, gameplay and immersion. But mobile adaptation, which works well under the latest version of iOs, should be reviewed for some things: The game skips slightly, which is awesome for a game of reflex. I do not think this is the config of my phone, since it is the 6+, the game should be more optimized to enjoy a better fps. The grip is more difficult than on the original version, the acceleration of the vehicle is quite slow when you start going to the right or the left. Nevertheless the possibility of being able to go gently by pressing the center of the screen is not bad. Finally we can already describe this game as a good game.
