How to Play

Use WASD to move and the mouse to shoot.

You win by getting all of the timeshifters. If you run out of time, you loose.

Watch out for enemies as they will try to block your path, and keep an eye out for time bonuses.

It may take a few seconds to load as there is no preloader.

Have fun!

Thanks! I'm no good at art so I tend to go for bright and glowing shapes :D

First: The tune is neat, I loved that tune.

You took a very common style (WASD shooter), and you added a lot of little nice twists to it. I liked the "rewind" effect every time I collected an objective, and I really like the small, discreet dots pointing to the next objective.

One possible improvement is that it is still easy to fall on the "Where is the last goal?" syndrome in this game. Maybe the goal indicators should have a longer range.

Cheers, and thanks for the game! Have a video:

I agree with the above post, I kept getting lost trying to find the last target.

Nice feature with rewinding. Pretty decent game in total.

Very nice game! I like the aspects of the game:
* Enemies try to block you instead of shooting you
* The time shifters actually turn back the time: very cool!
* The graphics style is totally cool

Thanks guys!

@gameXcore Yeah I know what you mean, when I was making it I didn't take that into account because I had played the levels so many times haha.

Cool idea with going back in time. The enemies could be more dangerous.

Love the music. Best music I heard so far in this LD! Really neat game and rewind mechanic. Good use of the theme. Awesome entry.

I also kept forgetting which way I had already gone. (Need sleep...) But, I kept going, because it's really fun. The last level was a fun change.

Also, it was awesome when I figured out I could hold the button to auto shoot. My laptop touchpad was getting murdered.

Nice graphics style and a good take on the theme!

Really nice looking game, with a good concept and fun to play. I like how you go backwards to the start! I featured your game in my compilation of Ludum Dare 27 games, if you want to check it out!

I loved this game! It was challenging but not impossible. The enemies were hilarious in my opinion. They just pound you up against walls when they clearly have guns. Great game!

The rewind effect was a great touch!

Thanks for the comments! I think I'll definitely be doing a post compo version of this game now! :D

Wow! Very well done! Although I was not sure as to whether or not I was meant to collect the green objects. Maybe make that bit a little more clear.

Nice graphics and sound. I was expecting the other ships to shoot at me or something but they worked fine at trying to block me. Cool Game.

Terrific idea of having enemies block you without damaging you! It would be nice to have more interesting objectives, though..
Everything runs very smooth and has a great feel to it. Great job!

Awesome game!

I love the reverse effect, it's very cool. Also the graphics look nice, the game was fun and had a fair bit of content. I really liked the music too.

Great job!

Nice game! Like the rewind mechanism, and the enemy blocking works rather well!

PORTS: Ports to other platforms can be done after the deadline. That said, the sooner you finish your port, the sooner people can play your game, improving your chances of placing in the final results. For best results, provide a Web version of your game, or a Windows version with no dependencies. Also be sure to rate about 20 games to improve your visibility.

MY GAME DOESN’T SHOW UP: If you can’t find your game, it’s usually because the URL to your downloads are missing ‘http://‘. Fix your URLs ( and you will show up.

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. I.e. A true that should have been a false, a word that should have been a different word, very tiny changes that you would have caught if you had more sleep. We leave this open to interpretation, but generally speaking your game should be identical to the game you submitted. No new features, just things you messed up last minute. Typos.
