You control the captain of a spaceship that is suddenly struck by a comet and destroyed. With no way to get home, the ship's crew is forced to face reality. They're doomed to die. There's no way out. But no matter what their fate may be, one thing is decided for certain. No one dies alone.

It's your job to navigate through the universe as the captain and reunite your crew. Hop, blast, and drift your way from planet to planet using your trusty jetpack. Reunite the crew, making sure not to run out of oxygen and leave them to drift in the void. Beware of molten planets, speeding comets, and deadly gravity wells. And when everyone in the sector is reunited, make your way to sun.

Sunburn! is the debut game from Secret Crush -- a three person studio founded by three alumni of the prestigious NYU Game Center MFA game design program. Originally a student project, the game was then specially selected for three months of full-time development as part of the NYU Game Center incubator in New York City.

Great game, love it! Except...


... for Level 55. Holy Russian motherland, it is WAY TOO HARD. As in, I have seriously tried no less than about 40-50 times, to no avail. Please, fix this atrocity... if not for me, then for the children. I must complete this game.

UPDATE: Well, I had finally beaten Level 55 and was ready to declare it the mother of all rage levels... but that was when I was a younger, more naïve fellow. That was before I beheld Level 58, an unholy behemoth of frustration-inducing, phone-bending madness that has caused every 4-letter word known to mankind to come spilling forth from my lips like the Niagara Falls of Profanity. I can say now that I have seen the depths of my own anger, and I can tell you with utmost certainty that it is not pretty. I have felt my blood pressure rise within my own body, and I fear that I may actually suffer a heart attack before I beat this mess of a level. Developers, please. Please have mercy on all who innocently download this game unaware of the monstrosity that awaits them 58 levels in. For the love of God, I beg of you... do something to change the level's difficulty, before someone, or something, actually does get hurt. #PhoneLivesMatter

Fun, but also frustrating


There is definitely fun to be had in this game, but for me, it eventually became more frustrating than fun. Controlling your character and his attached colleageus can be very difficult. This could be thought of as being part of the challenge of the game, I suppose, but at some point after Level 40 I started having a problem where some of my tethered colleagues would become untethered and die. It's difficult enough to control the main character and the attached characters without having to worry about the tethered characters flying loose. I also think it would improve the game if the zoom level could be controlled better so that you could leave the zoom level where you want it. Currently, you can pinch to zoom out, but you only stay zoomed out as long as you're pinching, and as soon as you stop pinching, the game zooms back in to its default perspective.

Compelling, Challenging


This is the type of game that lures you in with a simple premise and concise, simple levels designed to teach you its mechanics. Then it ramps up the difficulty in the second half posing some serious challenge for the player.

I did manage to beat it, but barely. The last few levels in particular are wicked hard, which is great if you’re not into that sort of thing. If you get frustrated easily, you may end up walking away frustrated and angry. The good news is that you can still enjoy most of Sunburn! as the really hard stuff only hits at the very end.

Ultimately, I say give this game a go. It’s well worth the asking price.
