    While Time Surfer will not win any awards for uniqueness, it is a great example of how a fun idea can be iterated upon by blending in concepts from other games to create something that feels at least somewhat new.

    Time Surfer adds quite a bit to the base endless game, and then there are all of the stylistic additions to behold.

    Time Surfer utilizes the same one-touch dive-and-fly mechanics, the same procedurally-generated level designs, and the same tri-mission element as its predecessor, but there's plenty of new material here (including its time rewind function) to set it apart and help it stand on its own.

    A solid endless auto-'runner' and a great update to the Tiny Wings formula - Time Surfer is a great time waster.

    Time Surfer is essentially more Tiny Wings with a rewind feature, which for some fans will be enough, but won't convert anyone who wasn't already fond of the game it's based on to begin with.

    Chasing scores is always an exercise in masochism, and in giving you potentially infinite second chances, Time Surfer risked taking away the sense of achievement. Instead, it adds a whole other dimension.

    When Time Surfer does require your input, it's one of the most rewarding experiences you'll find in an "endless" game to date. Even after playing the first 500 meters over and over again, and only seeing the back 3,000 thanks to serious sympathy from the game, I cannot put it down.

    Factor in some catchy music, and Time Surfer is one heck of a satisfying package. These are the types of simple and addictive games we play for hours on end throughout any given year, and that being the case, we hope it finds a hungry audience that can't resist one more slice.

    It might not be the most original idea out there, but Time Surfer is executed with such aplomb that that really doesn't matter.

    Time Surfers = Tiny Wings + rewind ability + frenetic fun.

    I get something new and different from playing Time Surfer, a rush that proves there was untapped potential in the formula. The game is vicious, it's ridiculous, and it looks like something that came off a Lisa Frank Trapper Keeper.

    Time Surfer is a good game within its genre, one that at least on the surface tries to resolve an issue with runner type games, and even make it a feature.

It can seem a little slow until you get the hang of it but once you're slingshotting off of planets and turbo speeds it's pretty intense.

    The rewind time feature is also simple and fun, don't forget to use it on a regular basis just to keep your speed up if you mistime something!

    A highly recommended fun game, I would've overlooked it if I'd not picked it up in the humble bundle.
