Run From the Sun

Share Collapse

Author Comments

The sun is exploding! Launch your spaceship from planet to planet and keep ahead of it for as long as you can.

A side scrolling "race the screen" game with just one control - launching your spaceship. Time your launches carefully to land you on another planet, and hop from planet to planet to stay alive for as long as you can. Fancy flying such as using another planet's gravity to slingshot you to a safe landing, or narrowly avoiding meteors, earns you big bonus points.

Press SPACE or CLICK to launch.

+, - and M control volume.

P to pause, Esc quits from pause screen.


I love it!

Simple and entertaining - like a game ought to be.

This has become one of my favourite games here! It's simple and provides endless fun! The only thing I wish for is a freaking selfdestruct button! xD


What can I say bad about this game? Nothing... The glitch/something that needs to be fixed would be Ellwoodblues saying "The max oxygen level is only level 2 sadly" And that's basically all I can say. I see a lot in you Freaky. This game is amazing, maybe even a new subgenre for launcher games. I for one love launcher games. And this was similar. I wish you added in upgrade. Maybe Run from the Sun Two? Anyways. That is all, thank you for submitting such a great game.

The only thing I can see to gig you on is that the number of lives never drops from 2.

Otherwise I would have given this gem max marks.

Love this game!

My only complaint is one i hope that u will find helpfull...the self-destruct button that a couple others suggested is a great idea...there's a couple times when i launched that i though "shit too soon" and have to wait for the 02 to run out or to run off screen....other than that one small complaint...I loved this game! The simplicity makes it addicting and a great time killer...the art and music are spot on....well done!
