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.



Rated 3.5 / 5 stars


Interesting idea for a 2D platformer. The frame rate sucks though, it actually interferes with gameplay; the lag causes you to miss jumps, and then it starts pressuring you to unfreeze and you end up dying. That kind of thing doesn't make for fun and challenging gameplay, just challenging gameplay, thus leaving you not wanting to continue to play, especially in flash games.

Good job

This was a very well thought out game, well done.


Rated 4.5 / 5 stars


The idea of stopping time is not original for a video game... However, a 2D platformer that utilizes this idea is unprecedented. This was very well done and a lot of fun. It does get choppy at times and like worm said, jumping on bullets can be frustrating. Overall though, great work!


Rated 4 / 5 stars


This game is really fun. The interactive puzzles are innovative in the sense that you must think if the directions of the bullets and the best time to stop them. My only gripe is the game is choppy at times and it is frustrating to try to jump on a bullet while time is stopped.
