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.

Up to 24 and reset

Honestly, this game is fun. Getting up to higher levels and dealing with tighter turns, doing more daring stunts, and really experiencing the game is a blast, especially with the right music playing in the background. Problem is, it randomly rests me, no matter what I do. I try every time to exit the game how it wants me to, but even so it still reset when I had maxed out my level. Sure, getting the Crawler ship helps out with speeding up the leveling process, but it still takes time I’m tired of doing over again. I would rate this game higher, but this resetting glitch just kills it honestly.

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.

Restarts, but good game

This version of the game might be better than the other one with all the decals and ships and things. However, like many people have been saying, the game keeps resetting my progress. Sure I have all my Tris and my ships and trails, but all my attachments, all my decals and all my high scores keep resetting. I just finished leveling up all the way today, and I came back on a few hours later and lo and behold, I was reset. I’m kinda irritated.
However, that aside, it’s a good (and might I say, addicting) game.
