A downloadable game for Windows and macOS
PLEASE READ HOW TO PLAY HERE TO AVOID CONFUSION
I worked on this offline at a cabin, so hurray for searching through manuals and fixing problems the hard way. This is my first time using Chronos, which works beautifully with Bolt.
It partly drew inspiration from the amazing movie Tenet and its time traveling style, but I also just wanted to fool around with time control in Chronos.
This is a fairly short game (7 levels), but the difficulty in the last two levels makes up for that. You'll have to think in reverse to get through the levels. Enjoy!
How To Play
Collect the key to unlock the door. If there is no key, the door is unlocked automatically.
- A and D or arrow keys to control left/right
- Space to jump
- R to rewind time
- T to reset level
The clock in the background will rewind time when it hits the red tick. You cannot control yourself while rewinding, but your character can still move blocks.
The three special blocks have different effects when you rewind:
- Orange Drop Blocks: Get affected by gravity
- Green On Blocks: Turn off
- Red Off Blocks: Turn on
