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.

awesome.. but...

.. the controls for catching the bullets and then aiming them at the enemy SUCK BIG TIME. They are the frustrating part that screwed up an otherwise 10+ game.

Still 9/10, 5/5.

Awesome work - just fix the controls - allow the keyboard arrow keys top be used for the arrow pointing and its golden in my opinion.

Great concept, lacking execution

I was killed one too many time by loose controls and dodgy clipping.

I had all but finished a level and I was building a pathway to the portal and a crate rubbed agains me the wrong way while time was frozen and I was thrown into the abyss.

I had already played the level four times and I wasn't about to play it again just to watch that happen again.

As said in the title, great concept, lacking execution. What you have here alone is a good start but needs some polish.
