Race The Sun
There isn't much more to say about Race The Sun. It does what it promises in offering a fast runner-style game, and it's nice that the developers went as far as to offer completely new level layouts each day, but ultimately this is as shallow as the likes of Doodle Jump or Temple Run, and costs an order of magnitude more money.
Gamers of all skill levels will probably get some thrills out of Race The Sun's super fast and tight gameplay.
With a minimalistic approach to the visuals, Race the Sun is quite pleasant to look at, even if the amount of colors are kept to a bare minimum. As you progress, the obstacles in the landscape become increasing more complex with a plethora of moving parts. Shapes will get increasingly taller, producing greater areas of shadows. For only $10, the endless replayability of Race the Sun is well worth the price. Excuse me; Race the Sun is calling my name.
Race the Sun is a new twist on endless runner. This time the goal is not running away from danger, but having as much fun as you can. You pilot solar-powered plane and your objective is to chase the sun avoiding shadows as much as you can. This simplistic game can't be player for story or visuals, but is fun to play nonetheless.

Those who don't mind its simplicity, though, will certainly enjoy what is probably the best independently developed endless runner for the PC so far.
Race the Sun is a fun endless runner of sorts that I can see making its way to other platforms in the future. It is looking for votes to get Greenlit on Steam, and I'd recommend promoting it. The price is slightly high at $10 right now, but it is DRM-free and available for PC, Mac, and Linux users.
Race The Sun is an adrenaline rush the likes of which few other games can compare!
With Challenging gameplay, a minimalistic yet sophisticated art style and relaxing music and audio that aids the game's intense pacing; Race the Sun is a game that will be enjoyed by hardcore Indie gamers as well as more laid-back gamers.
Tired of repetitive runner platforms? With new levels and challenges daily, Race the Sun is the perfect replacement for the stale games in your library.
This quaint indie game goes a long way to proving that a game doesn't have to centre itself around stunning graphics, intricate storylines or likeable characters in order to establish itself amongst some of the truly great indie titles out there today.
