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.

Yeah if I had to choose, Time Surfer would make the cut... there is much more things to do, more frantic, faster and intense.

If the world was going to end tomorrow, and all I could bring was either Time Surfer, Tiny Wings, or A roll of toilet paper.

I would bring Time Surfer. Cause it's more fun and will last forever.

Yeah I really enjoy Time Surfer, as is obvious by my posts in this thread. But the pet system brings it down quite a bit, as does the reliance on luck (more evident in Hell mode).

Jtpck is just pure gameplay, which is something that I really dig. And the upcoming update sounds great. Plus, jtpck really could do with more attention from TA, so you could take my ''jtpck is better'' as half truth, and half wanting more people to notice that awesome little gem.

I sort of agree. The pet system, IMO, is a bit broken. It costs a bit too much for the higher end pets after working so dang hard to unlock them. I think the dev needs to change the prices or eliminate the pricing on using pets. Level the playing field a bit but give a perk to the serious gamers.

But Hell Mode I'm pretty mixed on. I've managed to nearly get the same high score several times in that mode but my strategy is completely different than the main game. To survive you need to master the rewind feature but also pick your jumps very wisely and try not to go too fast where as in regular mode you need to go fast consistently (not that you need tips, just describing the difference). Hell Zone is all about precision jumping instead of trying to avoid pits and stuff. When I hit a groove where everything starts to flow... it feels pretty awesome. But it is called "Hell Zone" so it's gotta be tougher.

If my score was a one time fluke, I'd go with it being more luck than anything... but dialing in a strategy for it, I think y'all could probably eclipse my high score.

...

I played some Tiny Wings. Pretty cool game. The racing aspect in the second mode is pretty nice. The main game is a lot more relaxing than Time Surfer.. but that's not a knock against it or Time Surfer. Flight! I think is somewhat more fun to me than either game. I may need to check out jtpck. Something somewhat similar to that is Panic Springs. I had a lot of fun with that one.
