This action platform game created for Ludum Dare and still being developed has you running and jumping your way to freedom while also bending the laws of physics to make bullets do your bidding. Move with the [WASD] keys and use the mouse to slow down time, allowing you to highlight bullets and alter their trajectories to destroy enemy turrets or solve puzzles

Don't know if it my pc/connection, but at the moment this game is so choppy it's virtually unplayable.

It's a bit difficult because you cannot see the target you are trying to hit.

Once you slow time, the view zooms in on the character, and the target is out of sight! How are we supposed to hit the target?


I really like the whole concept, I think it's quite clever. It could be a little frustrating at first, trying to get used to fading in and out of slowed time. That felt like the clunkiest part of the controls for me. I also didn't like that you respawned in slowed time, it messed up the momentum I had so I might miss a jump, and end up dying again. I didn't really have too much of a problem with not being able to see the target, maybe I tended to be closer to what I was trying to hit. Also, as long as you send the bullets off in the right direction, they reach their mark!

Anyway, it was super short, so I hope the dev is planning on expanding it. It was fun, and a really neat idea!


Gameplay aside, I *love* the art style.

Took me a few minutes to get used to the controls (hint: don't hold the mouse down, but hold-and-release-for-a-second-then-hold-and-repeat, so it doesn't take forever for another bullet to spawn but also so real-time doesn't resume), but once I did I burned thru the level.

Was kinda disappointed that that's all there was, which in retrospect probably means I enjoyed it. ;)

Aw man, once I was able to master the controls, I was really enjoying this game. Imagine my utter disappointment when I discovered it was so short! I am so glad this game will be developed further. Can't wait to play a more full version :D


This was a great game, but I couldn't mute just the music, and the sound is very important, so you can hear bullets fire. I would like it better with the option to mute just the music.

But the music wasn't too bad for a short game.

One thing I liked is that

You have unlimited lives

This made the game about learning and not about reflexes.
