    Has anyone played this game? It's different from normal racers since you are only racing against time, not other players. It has a fast-paced feel kind of reminiscent to the Burnout series, as you have to dodge obstacles while going at high speed, trying to "chase the sun" as you pilot a solar powered craft which would die out once the sun sets.

    While graphics are not particularly amazing, the gameplay reminds me of old highscore arcade games! I found myself spending a few hours on this game, I had plenty of fun :)

    I've played it and it's a blast - but I certainly wouldn't consider it a 'racing game.' You're only trying not to run into anything and it I guess you can spin it to say you're racing the time but I'd much rather complain about how there's no Project Cars section, haha.

    I wouldn't really consider it a racing game either. It's definitely a fun and interesting game, though.

    The whole graphics thing is a over hyped concept to be honest. It all depends on how the game is presented and the gameplay itself. If a game is fun and is something that keeps you entertained. Then you shouldn't downgrade it because the graphics isn't that "realistic".

    This game is more of an infinite runner than a racing game but it really is great and I recommend it. It's really fast and has really responsive controls and lots of replayability.

    Yeah, with infinite randomly generated worlds I always find myself going back to see what new areas there are to race in!

    I recently got the game and I love it. I love to go to race and try to get further than I got on the previous try. The game is also very challening and that is what i love in the games that I play, if the game is too easy to play I don't consider it a good game. If anyone is hasitand about buying this game, I would recommend to do so, it is very fun.

    I have played it and while I do think it's a fun, worthwhile game I have to agree it's not exactly what I would put in the category of "racing games" and I think it's a bit of a stretch trying the whole 'racing time itself' concept. There are plenty of games with timed components and not all of them fall under "racing" just for that reason.
