Two touch gameplay keeps everything easy to reach and easy to play. Touch with your right thumb to dive. Touch with your left thumb to rewind time. It couldnt be simpler.

EVERYTHING ENDS, AGAIN AND AGAIN

Dodge spikes, pits and the end of the universe - its a typical, never-ending day in the life of a trans-dimensional cosmic time god! Pick up speed, magnet and time bonuses! Miss one? Rewind and grab it!

RANK UP, PET OUT

Complete missions to unlock new pets and earn Space Cakes to feed them. Little dudes like Axolotl, Squid Scholar or Robo-Duck will join your surf and give you crazy new abilities!

GORGEOUS VISUALS

Transition through beautiful Retina landscapes. Immerse yourself in a starry night as you surf, bounce and fly through various zones with different hazards and scenery!

BACK IN THE GOOD OLD 80S

Psychedelic visuals backed up by numerous references to 80s icons, including a police box, a time-travelling car and the monkey king on a cloud.

UP THE ANTE

Surf through Hell Zone and turn the difficulty up to 11 with a spike-infested gauntlet or try the Kepler Run, a surreal flight through a galaxy swamped with black holes. For those who really love a challenge.

A HAUNTING SOUNDTRACK

A spacey, hand-crafted chip-tune soundtrack from composer Derris-Kharlan. Each track sets the mood and reflects on Time Surfers inevitable doom yet eternal existence. Living forever is both a blessing and a curse.

Haha. Thanks guys. Luckily I had a pet alongside me for that run. I guess they're looking pretty useful to me now.

Gonna try and pass my hell zone score now. Second place is really close.

8212m without a pet now that I've finally reached Void's score, I'm happy
Andys score is too good, I will probably never come close to it, but I'll try it

Ba roos! First dude to make it over 4000 in hell zone. I like that I got that far with only 3 (almost 4) people over 3000. Boasting again

There's quite a big difference in players between the two leader boards, do people not know how to get there?

That may be part of it, 51,819 players in Normal Mode... 14,438 players in Hell Zone. I'm 32'nd in Hell Zone.. but I've just failed to really improve over my 2K score. I'm finding even Normal Mode that I've hit a wall where I can't escape the 6K range. I'm ~850 points below Synthetic Void... so I don't feel too bad about it.

Any recommendations on Pets? I'm currently at level 101... so I still have a ways to go to get the last pet and 12 levels to get the next to last pet. Still it can be such a grind saving up cake since I bought all the flair and all but 4 of the costumes.. but I'm close to having everything unlocked which will only leave cake for pets.

For hell zone I like the rock bug. For normal, it depends on how you most often die. Spikes are more frequent when you pass 10k, so the fire beetle is best used there. Since you're around 6k, if you fall a lot then try the Phoenix. If the end of the universe catches up with you because you have trouble maintaining speed, try squidlor to catch more gems using magnets so you can rewind and land jumps better. I'd go with squidlor over Phoenix, because if you're falling, then you ran out of gems. And that boost might just smack you right into some spikes and you still can't even rewind.

Raisin' the bar again! I wonder if my hell zone record is better than people's normal record lol
