Guru of Time Description:
Play an awesome indie puzzle platformer as the Guru of Time. Beware, a Guru is fragile and cannot touch his enemies or will be crushed into pieces, find ways around them...Collect keys and use mystic powers in your adventure to freeze time, float and control the surrounding environment. Defeat the Evil Guru's fortress to determine your fate while exploring many maze filled worlds. Use physics to avoid the elements and overcome obstacles filled with spiders, bouncing pandas, birds, crocs, traps and more in Guru of Time, Episode 1.

Please keep in mind: Drag the background and not the Guru himself. Most enemies and other obstacles will freeze while you're doing that!

Have fun!

One Major flaw.

I really hated how you can float but if you fall and then you float and let go one inch above the ground you exploded :I
Surely a guy who can control all this would be immune to fall damage from one inch..
Other then that not much to say that already hasnt been said.

Really balanced

The music was really relaxing, yet the limited floating was stressing, i agree that maybe next time you could have an improved meter, besides that i liked the retro style it had and the death was simply hilarious, also, and this most likely its only me, it was kinda hard to move the world when i had to take my mouse of the gamescreen, maybe a little zoom out next time, not a whole panoramic view like "worms", just a bit, all those little things aside, i think this has some real potential

not bad

the concept is great, the animations have a great 8 bit feel to them (which i love), and the game play is simple. however, i just couldn't enjoy the limited rainbow, magic, meter, thingy. i undestand that it represents his concentration/meditation, but, with such a limited range of movement, i felt that it really takes away from the gameplay. Otherwise, it's a great game, maybe an improved sequel?

Too simple for my taste

Too simple (the background, music and sprites) and not enough thinking or reaction...etc. involved (I think a major thing that made it look simple was because I'm so zoomed in). Some skill needed...but only to make sure you move your mouse off screen and basically die. Instead of a dragging screen around feature, you should have it so by leaving your mouse at the, say, top-right corner, the guru continuously moves that way (until I let go of mouse). Level editor wouldn't be so bad either.

Like it

Is interesting, use a Guru that can controll time and space, but canĀ“t swim (lol), is a very funy game, with great concept, good playability, and the necesary dificulty.
good work.
