You got 10 seconds to defeat the enemy. Will you make it on time?

Arrow keys - Movement
Space - Shoot/Skip
M - Mute music

Probably very unbalanced and have mercy on the graphics :P And some things are missing like some sound and such ^^;
And yes i have some misspelled words :P

Won in 10 iterations. I really liked the warp-back-time effect ;)

Fun game, iteration upgrade systems are always a blast. It could have been padded out a bit more.

The music was a bit harsh at first, but I got used to it.

I found myself accidentally skipping through the message the first few times I played, but I enjoyed the active reversal of time (and being able to skip it if I so chose.)

11 iterations

Good to see more shmups in Ludum Dare. At first, I was a little annoyed by the "we have just developed a time machine" message always being the same - but then I realised it's always the same point in time, so of course it'd be the same message. Good game!

Aug 26, 2013 @ 9:04am

That was super fun! And Great music :)

God Job!

I really like the time machine effect, really neat! Controls are a bit tight, but I got used to them pretty quickly. Also, for some reason this game made me think about Frog Fractions. Anyway, good job!

Fun game, one of those that you can't put down until you finish it.
It took me 14 iterations, I found quite hard to avoid beig hit.

Very fun nice idea, doesnt seam to polished.

15 iterations, nice game. I like the upgrade aspect to it (mine is upgradable too :P)

Won in 12 iterations, and I have to say that it's pretty addictive and a great concept.

I really liked this. My only nitpicks: I wish I could buy stuff with keyboard shortcuts so I didn't need to alternate to the mouse. And I wish I could skip/speed up the intro.

I like shooters so I loved the upgrades. The reverse time replay was also really cool (you could use this to make a jerk of a boss who rewound time). Music was nice and fitting.

8 iterations on my first go.

Fun game! Liked the music, and time rewinding animation is pretty cool. :)
Also a neat interpretation of concept. Good job :)

Really nice game, the time reverse effect looked nice! One thing that annoyed me was the repeating intro sequence, I wish you could skip them.

Aug 26, 2013 @ 1:37pm

Really fun! I like all the "uppgrades" :D

By far this is the best bgm I've heard. Great rewind effect!

Great idea! It was fun to play. says ...
Aug 26, 2013 @ 5:53pm

Neat idea! I enjoyed it, won in 10 iterations.

I would have loved to see something where each time you respawn, your previous tries also respawn alongside you and shoot. That would dictate a lot of design overhaul to make it different and balanced from what you did, but if I had come up with this idea that's probably where my brain would have gone :)

Nice game! It took me 13 iterations.

Finished that Game

Nice and simple. After a bit of farming was very easy to beat him.
Good music and sound.

Nice one. I saw similar thing of upgrading after you die in a few other games. Works really well.

Very interesting shooter! It's very fun, I'm just not sure how well it fits with the theme.

Aug 26, 2013 @ 9:42pm

Won in 10 iterations. Not bad! The ship could have bit smaller collision area though, felt like the bullets hit me way too easily.

Latency says ...
Aug 26, 2013 @ 11:06pm

Game was fun, nice use of the theme, it took me 9 iterations XD

good job. similar to the game of the Martians

I love the audio but the game is a bit unbalanced, as you have stated.

GrooveMan says ...
Aug 27, 2013 @ 5:58pm

Gaining money, even through time skips was thematically jarring, but this was super fun to play!
Beat it in 7 Iterations, with 2 deaths. It's easier to avoid getting hit if you ignore where you're firing, and focus on your space craft!

Diventurer says ...
Aug 27, 2013 @ 7:08pm

Awesome game! Won in 10 iterations, as I failed a lot the first tries. I really enjoy the music, it's really nice! (I still have the tab open because I like the music ;D )
I felt it was a bit slow during the transitions. I am not fond of long, boring transitions with 5 second fadeout/fadeins. But all in all, this is a nice game and reminds me of when I played Pegasus (a scrolling shooter). :)

Loving the time-warp effect, that and the upgrades are the best bits of the game. Movement felt a little weird and Watching the boss constantly crawl up and down the screen during the start, slowed down the otherwise pacey game.

Pretty fun shmup. Loved the time warp effect. Gets really trippy after a good shooting. Perfect balance between the difficulty and the cost of upgrades. Great job!

Thanks for all the comments :D
@ellipticaldoor damn i knew i had at least ONE misspelled word(i probably have more) :P
And for the opening transision, i forgot to add skip function for it, sorry ^^;

One of my favorites so far :)

Cool, addicting game ! 12 iterations in first time. In plus: upgrades and sound. Good work !

I loved the timewarp feature!

Delca says ...
Aug 31, 2013 @ 8:58pm

8 iterations is my best.
The time-rewinding effect is cool, and the game in itself gives a good vibe. I really wished it was longer when I finally defeated the ennemy for the first time.
Anyway, this is a good game. Congratulations on your work!

Why can't people make simple, fun games like this more often? Loved it. I'm sure people are saying the music didn't fit, but I think it's a FANTASTIC match!

Was pretty cool, the time reversing effect was cool I admit but slightly unnecessary. The upgrade system was fun though so good job on that.

Great little game. Nice one.

Sep 4, 2013 @ 12:35am

One of my favorite game thus far. Great job! I featured it in my video compilation series of LD27 games, if you would like to check it out :)

Not a big fan on the "Die a couple of times until you get strong enough to kill the enemy" mechanics ;x but that's just my personal taste. The game is nice and well done, won in 10 iterations.

Made a video while playing talking about what I was thinking

I hit upload to youtube but apparently takes a long time for twitch to transfer it to youtube... So if you're reading this in the future and twitch has deleted the video, you can check:

In the beginning I had no clue what was going on. Managed to win in 12 iterations.
