Collect special "time bonuses" becoming younger, stronger and faster. Avoid angry watches and shooting clocks and try to find the way back to your youth. Get to the finish as fast as you can and earn the highest score. Unlock achievements while playing.

This game was created for Russian contest of one week development. That is why it is pretty short. Hope you will like it's fast paced gameplay.

UPDATE: Newgrounds medals added

Horrible idea to let the projectiles pass through terrain.
Sound design is awful.
Art is awful.
Controls are awful, and jumps are poorly designed.
How can someone do such a bad job when games from the 90s did this metroid schtick better?

Nice game. Kinda repetitive but the +1 speed after every round makes you wanna go for another try and finish the game faster, which I found kinda neat. But, yeah, I got all the other achievements and still, I didn't get the Ace medal. Why is that?

not quite good, you can do better

Giving it a 3 - 2 for the gameplay (you have to jump right at the edge; also, arrows and such shouldn't be able to pass through the landscape) and an extra star for the art and music, which are quite nice. I especially liked the different, creative enemies.
