You are a solar craft. The sun is your death timer. Hurtle towards the sunset at breakneck speed in a futile race against time. Delay the inevitable by catching energy boosts which reverse the setting sun - if only for a moment.

Race The Sun is inspired by arcade games of the past with a focus on highscores, short game sessions, and pure fun mingled with a nerve-wracking tension. The rules are simple: don't crash, stay in the light, and don't slow down!

Key Features

- Complete objectives to unlock upgrades and level-up your ship (25 levels)
- Customize your ship with attachments like faster turning and decals
- Unlock two ultra-hard worlds as you level-up

So i presume this is the 'legit' proper version (not that cheap free knock off that was here the other day?)

Want to see a video first but potentially it looks great. Hope its not just 'die' with one life and start again type of thing.

Hmm A7 exclusive for the pretty lighting? Oh well, not a huge loss.

PS: In other news, Amplitude confirmed over twitter that Dungeon of the Endless will only need an iPad 2 or better.

Loved this game on Steam, tempted to double-dip as this is perfect for on-the-go and on-the-john.

Yep, it's the real deal! And yes, the controls use touch, rather than tilt.

We found tilt to be a bit too unresponsive - and who wants to look at their screen sideways?
