Under rating threshold (show) this reminds me of something i read somewhere: a vehicle would have to travel at 1000 miles per hour to keep up with the sun (near the equator). the speed of sound is about 768 miles per hour...

Under rating threshold (show) Sadly, the slow bug ruins the game experience. I would gladly play a fixed version.

Maybe try our new public beta for the downloadable version? http://flippfly.com/racethesun/beta-access/ :)

Under rating threshold (show) Yes I really really really suggest a tris counter. I've no idea of how I'm doing against the 150 challenge. I've even tried to count them as I get them :)

Developer response from Flippfly

Note: If you pause the game (escape) you can see your progress. We'll make this a bit easier in a future update!

Under rating threshold (show) Good game, but has lot of room for improvement. The game is entirely played by the keyboard and when I crash, I have to use my mouse to start a new game. Would be better if I could do it with my keyboard itself. Needs sound controls. AND it would be awesome if this game was available in the Android market. :P

Developer response from Flippfly

Thanks for the feedback! You can actually start a new game with the spacebar or Enter key. We'll work on improving the communication of this fact in a future update. As for an android version - we would *definitely* like to bring this to mobile platforms. A lot of that will depend on the success of the PC version. Thanks for playing!

Under rating threshold (show) Freaking sexy game. I loved it, just wished that the regions were a bit more varied. Although I know its in early stages so awesome job! When the clouds in region 4 started to cut my power, I thought that was a clever touch.

Under rating threshold (show) Thank you so much for adding more jump power ups! Now the ability actually serves a purpose. The only addition I would like to see now (other than more power ups) is being able to collect speed burst and jumps by flying through the light, not just the token itself. I feel like I'm always in the air and can't collect enough boosts to keep me moving!

Under rating threshold (show) Whelp, someone already hacked the high-score list.. and how-about some new potential challenges..? "Jump to X hieght(using the jump master ability mostly)" "Get X tris in a row" "Survive X amount of time with out sunlight" "Travel X Towards the right, Travel X towards the left" "Dive through X snakes"

We're all over that highscore hackage. We'll have a fix up today, and have made Kongregate aware of it as well. Thanks for the challenge suggestions!

Thanks! We've actually fixed this bug in our latest version - we'll update the Kongregate version at some point too.

Under rating threshold (show) It's overall a nice game, I made a break from it to write this comment. My thougths: I don't know if something changes at the higher player level ( I mean, i know powerups are added, but I don't know if scenery is, because should) but from new player point of view I think that these kind of games are HIGHLY addictive until they have something to do - achievements. My opinion is that the fun achievements are key to success. But what are the fun achievements? For sure not the one like collect x powerups y times. Someone posted earlier adding "water" levels. This could be good for adding achiev like "Distance traveled while wing is touching water" etc. What do you think about it? To comment other aspects of game: Graphic is really cool, It helps focus on gameplay, that kind of graphic never gets old :) Music maybe should getting a lil bit heavier while the ship is getting higher speed. Overall I see great potential in this game: And sorry for bad English!

Developer response from Flippfly

Hey thanks for the great feedback! We're definitely working on making more interesting things happen in the game, and this will also help us keep the achievements/objectives more interesting too! Right now we're running a Kickstarter to try and help fund us through to the end of development - the plan is to open up the world-building tools to modders, so there'll be an endless stream of new content to enjoy :)

Under rating threshold (show) One of my favorite things about this was the quick turnaround between death and restart. With the explosion death update, it looks cool, but takes waaaay too long. Also, tris should still give you more points in the higher region, and this should be multiplied by the multiplier as well.

Under rating threshold (show) On the boring, barren landscape of Earth, 3016, the world is dead. Abandoned houses litter the ground as the last survivor tries to fly to the sun. After the factory blew up, pieces of Tris and special powerups were scattered across the world. At least thats what i think. Oh, by the way, great game.It's very original. 5/5

Under rating threshold (show) Great game! It's always nice to see simple ideas work so well. One thing though, I feel the obstacle of clouds is just bad, it is not really a challenge;as there is rarely a way to avoid them and still keep up with collecting tris, etc so all you are left with is either miss out on a lot of points or lose speed. It would be better if at least the number of clouds was less and if most of them weren't so huge. Anyways, 5/5 favourited.

Developer response from Flippfly

The jump powerup is a great way to avoid the cloud shadows. Thanks for the feedback!
