Race the sun
You control a solar powered craft, hurtling towards the sun at breakneck speed.
Free, for Android

This game was originally released for Windows, Mac & Linux in 2013. The developers Flippfly went on to port the same fast-paced experience to phones/tablets a few years later. The Challenge Edition is slightly modified from the original with several new features. It’s currently free and marked as unreleased (but is available to download from the Play Store). Since its unreleased, you may encounter a few bugs and the developers are asking for help with information if it happens.

You control a solar powered craft, hurtling towards the sun at breakneck speed. You have to stay in the light, keep your wits about you and swerve to avoid different obstacles will collecting the power-ups. Just tap on the left side of the screen to move left and vice versa. The craft steers slowly if you tap near the centre of the screen and faster if you tap towards the edges – an interesting control scheme that offers more control while being easy to master.

The graphics and sound effects are simple but that’s also what makes it fun and compatible with a wide range of phones.
