* Previously App Store Editors Choice *

"one of the best endless runner games we've seen in a long time." -- TouchArcade

"Time Surfer is blazing fast." -- Indie Games

"A great example of how a fun idea can be iterated upon." -- 148 Apps

SIMPLE CONTROLS, NO COMPROMISE

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.

Got to beta test this... Freakin great Tiny Wings type game with some awesome upgrades (pets) and powerups and that time rewind mechanic is so great, especially for someone like me who just couldn't click with Tiny Wings gameplay no matter how hard I tried... I screw up a lot, and being able to rewind time to fix a crappy jump is great. I suck at these kind of games, but Time Surfer kept me hooked, especially over the last couple weeks (it was a lot easier also beta testing a couple other games, and having to go into sandbox mode in GC anyway...)

Blah blah blah. You guys that have Beans Quest know how high Kumobius's production levels are... Don't think, just hit buy.

Game Impressions

If there's a more talented and more dedicated developer on the app store, I'd love somebody to point me in their direction. These guys just know what makes a game fun and how to implement it. You could talk about genre, and style, and different strokes, but none of that is particularly relevant here. This is pure gaming. Done right.

I was disappointed to see inclusion of IAP, but hard to tell at an early stage to what extent it is intrusive.

Please tell me that "IAP" is a typo error!?! If its true then how do they effect the gameplay....what a silly question.....how stupid of me to be questioning this game I know very little about it..have not played a second of it but I like what I see and SV said don't think just buy!!! I must!!!

The iap is cake. It's an in game currency. You can get it just by playing, you can get it by liking on Facebook and using twitter, and you can buy it. I guess it's related to pets, but I'm still figuring the game out.

Thanks for letting us know. Think I'll wait until tomorrow to see what the verdict will be on this game....

If I had to compare the game to anything, it'd probably be Punch Quest, in that it's a quirky endless with seemingly unobtrusive iap that's made by well respected devs. It is fun, though I'm still learning the mechanics- never played a surfer. Was nice seeing Axolotl again.

As Gabrien said, Kumobius is a developer who has met and surpassed all promises and expectations in regards to Bean's Quest.

And if that isn't enough, then wow does the gameplay every look insane!
