This game fucking rocks. Never seen a gameplay mechanic like this! It's really fun and hits the theme spot on. Great rob man. 5 stars

Very nice game ;) well done !
sounds are great too.

Aug 26, 2013 @ 1:46pm

Great looking game, I had a problem understanding what exactly was required in order to kill the enemies, music is stuck in my head now too :).

Cool concept, interesting gameplay! A very impressive game, I can't find any flaws about it.

Very polished for a 48h game.

Really cool concept. Lots of levels. It's still a bit confusing but fun overall.

Definitely some interesting mechanics here. Bonus points for the added physics and the visuals, although the final boss... was a bit weird looking.

Played the whole game and loved it!
The controls could have been better instead of selecting a number each time you could have made it that each time you click it switches automatically to the next number with the location circle containing the number.

Not too difficult, and with a very nice atmosphere!

Music is a bit repetitive though.

The best game i've played so far on this LD

Addictive, responsive, really fun, graphical rewards... Awesome game ! Loved it ! Great work :))

Thank you all for your comments ^-^

Amazing work. Music fits absolutely perfect and really got me! Graphics are as awesome as the mechanic itself. Being able to use keys to go from one timestep to the next would be nice. Should also play nice on touchscreens. Well done!

Such a satisfying game ! The sound of the blade is excellent and the feeling of the game is great. Plus, your take on the theme is fantastic. It just lacks some sort of tutorial to explain some mechanics (purple mob, red & yellow crates), apart frop that it's a really great entry !

While it is sometimes difficult to know what to do (the Triforce level being the prime example), I do have noting else to complain about.

Aug 28, 2013 @ 11:14am

Awesome effort! The production values are quite high, even if the music got a tad repetitive towards the end. But you could clearly expand the game and the mechanics and have post-compo version of this. Congratulations on the great game!

Interesting gameplay idea, but I felt the fact that the enemies moved made their positions during the input phase irrelevant.

Great game design, strategy game at it's finest. good execution.

I really liked this, took a few goes to figure out how the timeline stuff worked but I figured it out :)

Pickens Inc. says ...
Aug 29, 2013 @ 7:29pm

Love it in every way :) A tutorial would be nice, but I figured it out by the first level :D Highest rated so far :)

ChronusZ says ...
Aug 29, 2013 @ 7:37pm

Excellent game, I loved it! :) Some sort of tutorial or description would've been really nice, though. It took me quite a while to figure out what I was supposed to do, and I still don't understand the different colours of boxes and monsters and what they change.

Aug 29, 2013 @ 8:29pm

At the level with four yellow boxes and four ghosts I didn't know why I got annihilated every time, and the game had gotten a bit repetitive. I do think there's some good puzzling potential here. Excellent graphics!

Style is cool, music is cool... gameplay is simple to learn but not so easy to master... result: a decent game!

Aug 30, 2013 @ 10:45pm

Ah, got the 8th level by accident. The last two were the most interesting.

Diptoman says ...

5 stars for everything. By far the best game I've played in this jam till now! Excellent idea, brilliant execution!

Once I figured out what to do I thought this game was just fantastic. Although, I like finding out what I have to do, it feels rewarding when I realise what I was doing wrong

Zap says ...
Aug 31, 2013 @ 4:23pm

Man, it took me ages to figure out what was going on- this game is in desperate need of instructions because it's really good! I fear some players may not have the patience to work it out themselves (I'm still not sure what the different colours mean :S)
Interesting interpretation of the theme by creating a fun, unique mechanic, executed with high polish. Really cool entry!

Aug 31, 2013 @ 10:35pm

Great Puzzle! Nice effects!

Sep 1, 2013 @ 12:26pm

5/5 for innovation, fun, theme and graphics! This is a fantastic entry! Kudos!!!

Sep 3, 2013 @ 1:54pm

VERY cool concept. Presentation is top notch. It was a little tricky to figure out though, and sometimes playing the same sequence of actions will result in different enemies dying or not dying. I didn't quite get it, but overall very cool.

Sep 4, 2013 @ 2:05pm

Fantastic game! I really enjoyed the concept and everything was very smooth. Impressive stuff. The only thing I can say is that I would have liked to be able to cycle through time slots with A/D instead of alternating clicking between placing the icon and advancing time every time.

Well done! Very interesting puzzle game =)
It will be better if time moments switched with digits from 0 to 9.

MY GAME CRASHES, IS UNBEATABLE, OR I MADE A TYPO: We allow you to fix crash or win condition bugs after the deadline (in a sense, like “porting” to support more players). We also allow “typo” bugs.
