Time Surfer goes free as Apple’s App of the week

Apple has just named Kumobius’ “Time Surfer” its App of the Week for this week. This means that from now through next Thursday, you’ll be able to download the popular endless arcade runner for free on both iPhone and iPad—a solid savings of a buck.

If you’ve ever played Tiny Wings, Time Surfer will feel somewhat familiar. The basic mechanical gameplay is the same—tap the screen to pull in close and gain speed, release to fly. But make no mistake, everything else is much faster and far more intense.

From the App Store Editors’ Notes:

Outrace the destruction of the universe in this eye-popping endless runner with a strategic twist. Zoom across a psychedelic landscape of swooshing slopes and deadly obstacles, collecting gems to turn back time and undo your demise or excuse point-boosting feats of agility. With several worlds to explore and a loopy, anything-goes style, it’s a cosmic riot that’s full of surprises.

Here’s a clip of the game in action:

Even if this game doesn’t look like your cup of tea, I recommend grabbing it. The developers are widely respected and behind great iOS titles such as Duet Game and Bean Dreams. Time Surfer itself has a 4.5 rating on nearly 2000 reviews in the App Store.

You can find Time Surfer in the App Store for free.
