Race the Sun Review
Posted: 6 months ago, last updated 3 months ago.
In Race the Sun you can delay running out of energy by collecting speed boosts that reverse the setting sun, giving you a short reprieve from the looming darkness. There's a mechanic where you can try to aim for a high score by collecting "Tris" an in-game currency used to increase and maintain your score multiplier.
A feature that sets Race the Sun apart from similar arcade-style games is that the world changes every day! This allows you to take the time to try again and be ready for an obstacle that may have surprised you, without limiting the gameplay to memorization.
The game can only be played as a single-player experience but that doesn't mean that families can't take advantage of its short playtime and score focused gameplay to see who is the best solar craft driver in the family!
Race the Sun
Does not offer in-game purchases, 'loot boxes' or 'battle/season passes'. On Andriod and iOS a Challenge Edition is offered for free with in-app purchases rather than an upfront cost.
