* Previously App Store Editors Choice *

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

"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.

Tiny Wings on LSD. I beta-tested the game. In the very first seconds, I was a bit disappointed that one of my favorite devs (Bean's Quest ist one of the best platformers I've ever played) ist "just going for another Tiny Wings clone". But oh boy, was I wrong. This game is soooo much more. And yes, easily on par with Punch Quest to me. Easy to learn, hard to master. The production is brilliant throughout and just seeing the loading screen makes you feel sure to be in for something great. Music is lovely, controls just work perfectly, the additional characters are cool and there is just so much to see and try. And when I was surfing on a planet's ring for the first time - by accident - I couldn't stop smiling.

Definitely one of the best endless games in the store and I hope people give this game some time to dive into all the mechanics and little tricks. Mistaking it for another Tiny Wings isn't doing this game any justice, it's a lot better and in the end pretty different.

Can't wait what's coming next from these devs.

Looks like Mikey has learned some new tricks. After Bean's Quest I'd buy almost anything made by these guys. Great stuff.

One time power ups?!?! You mean we can't pick our favourite pet...fatten him up on cake just once and have unending high scores...it's a shame after one use he must go hibernate back to his cave like a bear.

If your good enough you don't need the pets at all, they don't really increase your runs.

Just bought it

I just bought it, will try it now and will post a review very soon! The soundtrack made me buy this one, I love the retro style, reminded me of Turrican! By the way, is there any chance to see Turrican or Shadow of the best on IOS one day? those two are my very favorite with KickOff and F-Zero
