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.

Very nice game, feels like Tiny Wings with some new features. The gameplay is very smooth, easy to rewind the time and good soundtrack (which is very important to me, like Tiny Wings or Ronin) Yes it is another endless running game, but this one is very good.
My only fear is how long will it take me to get bored of it? I played Tiny Wings for quite a long time, Ronin too, but this one??? I hope to see some new features in the future, to keep me busy with it

Yes I do, I also miss my amiga 500, that's why when I heard that soundtrack (Time Surfer) I immediately bought it, really reminded me of Turrican!

Good game. What's missing though is achievements via Game Center. That was what kept me playing Tiny Wings so long, going for all the achievements I could get. I'll play for a bit, but I doubt it'll hold my attention very long...

Like the game a lot.

Only problem is the pet system. I want to pick my favorite pet and get to use him every game. You have to use currency every round in order to use your pet.

Extremely polished, well made, etc (not to gloss over the positives--it's a very fun game).

However, to me, there's something empty about it. Punch Quest had the same quality; more like a piece of candy than a chocolate bar (which, in this case, is Tiny Wings).

I know it won't be a permanent fixture, but it's a couple hours of a rollickin fun time for a buck.

I was lucky enough to get into the beta, and played for hours.
