    You are a solar-powered craft. The sun is your death timer. Hurtle towards the sunset at breakneck speed in a futile race against time.

    You are a solar-powered craft. The sun is your death timer. Hurtle towards the sunset at breakneck speed in a futile race against time. Race The Sun is inspired by arcade games of the past with a focus on high scores, 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! This is a cross-save, cross-buy title.

    Although it may be hard at the beginning, I ended up enjoying Race the Sun quite much (I got the 100% of trophies).

    Once you have mastered the controls and know what to do exactly, the game shines much more. As you progress through stages, surviving gets more and more difficult, but it also makes you feel the thrill if you manage to. The game design is simple but beautiful, and, more importantly, it is effective.

    Maybe this is more of a competitive game, so it could captivate you if you like that type of games.

    There's certainly more depth than your average infinite runner, and it can get quite addicting in that "just one more go" sort of way, butThere's certainly more depth than your average infinite runner, and it can get quite addicting in that "just one more go" sort of way, but it's still just an infinite runner. A good one that has plenty of reasons to keep coming back, but nothing terribly new. Your enjoyment of this will depend of how much you enjoy it's minor twists on the genre.

    It's a game that has you racing against the inevitable; an ever lowering sun. Dodging obstacles and getting a high score is to be expected as well. Like the best in the genre it has objectives to complete during runs. Doing so will cause you to unlock new power ups that give the game more depth as well as some other game modes. None of these unlockables change the fundamental aspects of the gameplay, but they do make it deeper than the average infinite runner.

    The addictive nature the genre often has is here as is the core gameplay. It does try to be a fresh take on the genre, but ultimately doesn't really succeed. Instead what we get is another solid infinite runner with daily randomized levels. Whether you are competing for that high score or just trying to beat all the challenges to unlock everything this is a very entertaining game. Not exactly new, but fun nonetheless.

    I give "Race the Sun" a 7.9/10.

    Race the Sun
    Endless Frustrations
    Race the sun is an endless runner game where you control a ship trying to rack up as many points as possible..
    Before you start there are challenges to clear...
    clearing these challenges will progress the level of your ship...
    as you progress your level you unlock new drops to help you get further as well as ship perks,,
    This helps with the one more try mentality you need in an endless runner..
    Especially since this is all that the game is...
    The world isn’t too interesting and that’s mostly due to the fact that is changes every 24 hours…
    but it’s still thrilling trying to find the right path in a region, remembering where you messed up and trying to overcome these obstacles next time…
    as there definitely are some wrong paths with impossible obstacles unless you have a specific pick up with you…
    this can make the game feel a bit cheap, frustrating and unfair..
    a smack in the face like your perseverance meant nothing when you get into a situation you have no control in…
    This ultimately hurt my overall experience of what otherwise is a fairly enjoyable quick break kind of game..
    There’s not much depth here…
    complete challenges, stay out of the shadows, and race the sun.
    I give race the sun
    a 6.5/10
