Trapped! Trapped in this infernal tower. No doors, no windows, just these buzzing beams and teleportation portals.

"Good luck!" the mechano-wizard had said, "This fortress was designed to be manoeuvered by a swarm of tiny robots! But You Only Get One! Hahaha!", and then she teleported away.

But the technological thaumaturge had forgotten my signature spell: The Time Warp! By revisiting my past timelines I can reap the benefits of several efforts at once, and beat that eldritch electro-fiend at her own game!

**** Controls Keyboard ****
Arrow keys to move

*** Notes ***

You need XNA 4.0 redistributable to be able to play. But don't worry we included it in the rar file ;)

We didn't get around to making a lot of levels, so try not to be too disappointed when it ends at four >_>

We're planning on maybe adding some more post-compo, so if you're feeling hooked on our robot/trapped wizard friend's adventure and would like to see more, stay tuned for updates :)

Very fun! The physics were fluid and the gameplay quite enjoyable. Would look forward to seeing this further developed. :)

Wow, this game is great! That last level really stepped up the difficulty, but it also made it really rewarding to win. I feel like this is some of the most fun I've had with LD games so far.

Wow. Great mechanics. Had a blast while playing it. The art and audio helps alot to bring out core mechanics. Good job!

Lots of fun! I had so many guys going on that last level :). I really liked the mechanics, but I though the ball could be easier to control.

The replays get obviously bugged sometimes, couldn't get past level 3 because of that. The idea isn't that bad, though I've seen it before in some Flash game.

I loved the entry, but I had difficulty figuring out how you incorporated the theme. The last level was quite an interesting exercise though.

Liked it. It said I was a winner. I knew it all along! Quite difficult though.

Really cool, reminds me of Chronotron from years ago. The physics are really satisfying.

IMPORTANT NOTE: If you want to place in the final results, you NEED votes. The easiest way to get votes is by rating other games. Judging lasts for 3 weeks following the end of Ludum Dare. For best effect, rate 20 games as soon as possible. Rating more games is encouraged.


TEAMS: Teams entering the Jam should pick a single representative to submit your game, or create a team specific account you can share. We currently do not support Team Voting, but sharing an account and together playing and rating games is acceptable.

NOT LOGGED IN?: If you get a message about not being logged in, even though you are, it’s because your web browser cached the non-logged in page. You can fix this by either refreshing your cache or clearing your cache. CTRL+F5 in many browsers. Chrome is a bit more work. Press F12 to enable Developer Mode, then you can right click on the refresh button and select “Empty Cache and Hard Reload”. This option is unavailable if you are not in Developer Mode.

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.
