The Race the Sun wiki last edited by LandonRobinson on 04/17/14 03:38PM View full history

Overview

Race the Sun, developed by independent game studio Flippfly, is a self-described "endless racer." Players control a solar-powered aircraft attempting to collect as many of an object known as tris whilst avoiding a myriad of obstacles before the sun sets, at which point the run ends.

Gameplay

The goal of the game is for the player to steer their ship through endlessly-generating obstacles both stationary and mobile to make it safely to the next area. The ship run on energy from the sun, which sets at a consistent rate as the player progresses. If the sun sets and the ship runs out of fuel, or the player crashes, the player must start over.
