You are a solar-powered 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 speed boosts which reverse the setting sun - if only for a moment. Race The Sun: Daily Challenge Edition is inspired by arcade games of the past with a focus on high scores, short game sessions, and pure fun mingled with nerve-wracking tension. The rules are simple: don't crash, stay in the light, and don't slow down!

This new edition of the game includes several new features including new alternate ships, colorful new trails, and a new "daily challenge" system that will test the skills of even the most experienced players.

Modern classic, updated

Race the Sun has been around for a few years now, but it still feels fresh and engaging to play. It has an addictively simple formula: navigate a fast-moving ship through an environment full of obstacles, and keep it going as long as you can before you run out of juice or smash into something.

I'm normally pretty down on free-to-play games because I hate being bothered with ads all the time, but RtS is thoughtful about their inclusion, and you get quite a bit of free play before you're ever asked to view an ad. There's also an extremely reasonable $5 unlock option that removes the ads.

If you somehow missed this game earlier, you should give it a shot! And if you have already played the original, it's worth checking out this improved version.

Fantastic game from a fantastic company

I first got this game for PC at Pax Eastern. I loved it when I first played it on the computer. It’s still great on the iPhone. I’m undecided if I’d rather it use the accelerometer or the touch system that it currently uses.

Great but needs some work

I think this is a great game but sometimes my level progress is deleted and I have to start over. If that problem is fixed, then I would rate this game a five star.
