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.

Reason why I say runnerup is that both games are great fun, just like other similar games like Whale Tail or Ski Safari.
I thought you bought the game because I mentioned it in the deals forum thread for Bean's Quest.

And um you said "Whale Tail" instead of Whale Trail. I found that funny

Yeah, and I doubt I ever will... HellZone is brutally hard. I love it, but damn do I suck. =oP

Yeah, I am starting to feel the same way about the main game. It's weird though that I can be better (compared to my GC friends) at the hard mode than the regular one.

Last night I ended up taking a break from this and put time into other games. Most were deleted after trying them but Flight! turned out to be a lot of fun.

I've played hell mode only a few times so my score is only 1.080m, I'm enjoying normal mode more.
Only 17m away from SV's high-score

What's your strategy with the game in normal mode? I've eeked up a little but the few times I manage to get into the 6K's I either run out of juice in a bad spot and the end of the universe catches me or it's the black&white world so unless I hit it with enough speed it's impossible to pass.

I've read what others have posted... and it's helped some. I never got into tiny wings so I don't have that experience to really back me up... heck, I shouldn't use that as an excuse (legitimate or not)... **goes to appstore, buys tiny wings**... I guess I should get that experience and see if it helps.

No, I bought it cause I was curious about the SV / Gabrien thing. The bean's quest thread experience cause it was so humourous did factor into my buying it a little.

Always thought that it was called Whale Tail, haha, Ninjackid always gets on my case for movie names I hack up. Well, the Whale does have a tail!

Well, this isn't quite the reason either, but let's just go with that.
