What: Tiny Wings meets Braid in a unique 'endless surfer'. Time Surfer is out now for iPhone, iPod touch and iPad.

When:  Thursday, 10th of January 2013

Details: Time Surfer, a fast-paced 'endless surfer' from Kumobius—developers of the critically acclaimed Bean's Quest—is out now for iPhone, iPod touch and iPad.

More details on Time Surfer:

Time Surfer follows the last surfer travelling through the galaxy, haunted by an inevitable, destructive force: the end of universe itself. The surfer’s only defense? He can cheat death by rewinding time.

Key features:

Rewind time to fix your mistakes and perfect your surfing – use your rewind power to cheat death, surf the perfect curve, or thread a path through obstacles and enemies – just don’t let it run out!

Stomp on aliens and asteroids, avoid spikes and pits – the fabric of time and space is a dangerous place. Stomp on enemies to get speed boosts and steer clear of the deadly spikes and pits to avoid an untimely demise.

Heaps of Special Surfers to unlock – including a police phonebox, a time-travelling car, an assassin from the future and ‘Robo Duck’.

Unlock pets to help your chances – unlock cute pets with special abilities. These little friends will join your surf and give you crazy, new abilities!

80’s pop-culture on full display – psychedelic visuals are backed up by a sweeping chiptune soundtrack and numerous references to 80’s icons.

Hell Zone mode – turns the difficulty up to 11 with a spike-infested hellscape. For those who really love a challenge.
