Race the Sun
The Wii U finally has something for families to play again. I know
many of the readers out there had given up hope of finding anything
decent on the Wii U to purchase. You won't find Race the Sun in your
local retailer. Instead Race the Sun is a downloadable only video game.
Race the Sun shows its app origins in leveling up. Players must complete
certain goals (like jump ten times) to level up.
What good is leveling up in Race the Sun? You get items that are equip-able on your ship. Like what? Things like a magnet, extension to the jump booster, and more. Is Race the Sun an endless runner? I don't know for certain. There are regions in Race the Sun. So you complete one area and get to another area. I had problems getting past area three in Race the Sun so I am unsure how long this game is.
Race the Sun has an addictive nature to it. You know you can do better, complete that goal, and avoid smashing your ship into something. Also it is bad in Race the Sun to stay in the shadows too long. Sunlight is needed to power your craft in Race the Sun. This means you need to collect light triangles throughout the game. The one problem with that is they give you a speed boost. These objects are hard to avoid at normal speed. Imagine trying with a turbo charge on.
Graphically Race the Sun is toned down. I like the bright colors many other video games use. I noticed my eyes were tired after playing Race the Sun. Maybe because the sun is in the background and setting while I was playing Race the Sun. The music in Race the Sun is fantastic. I love hearing the sounds, and reading all of the 'knowledge messages' in Race the Sun. They are not overbearing and are actually helpful.
I enjoyed playing Race the Sun on the Wii U. I learned to avoid objects, and also to jump over them. Once you get the jump in Race the Sun the game is much more fun. Race the Sun changes every twenty four hours so you can come back day and day and see what new things have been added and/or removed. Race the Sun can be found on other systems like Steam, and the PSN.
