A platformer with a twist - you must evade enemies and solve puzzles by freezing time. While the enemy has a wide array of weapons in their arsenal, you are forced to use your wits and your time altering abilities to evade and destroy. Place a heavy crate over an enemy and then unfreeze time to squash them. Or redirect the path of a missile to fire back at the enemy.
However, your abilities are limited as you are only able to stop time for short periods before your grip begins to falter. If you remain within the Tempus when your energy is expended, the powerful forces within will slowly sap away your life until you either return to a normal flow of time or you die.
While your powers slowly regenerate over time, you can replenish them quicker by harvesting 'aether' left behind by vanquished foes.
