Author Comments

Time Tofu is a survival based action platformer shooter where you shoot guns and control time! Your main objective is to survive as long as possible within arena like stages where you scavenge for random ammo drops to aid in your survival.

Along with ammo collection, you control a Tofu that can manipulate time! When the Tofu activates time control, the Tofu becomes completely invulnerable to all enemies and dodges any incoming attacks! However, this ability is limited and must be used wisely.

One of the worst games I've ever played. Pointless and unnecessarily hard.

Nice original soundtrack and smooth controls. Could use a bit more variation in gameplay.

DivinityStripes responds:

Thank you for the feedback! I put a lot of time into composing the music and tightening the controls.

We actually had quite a lot in mind to make the gameplay have more variety, but we thought it would be best to do a couple things well rather than many things terribly.

I hope you get lots of fun out of Time Tofu!

I have never seen a more excellent game. This has motivated me to the max. Just do it. If you don't you are making a big mistake!

DivinityStripes responds:

Thank you for the fun review!

I hope you get a lot of motivation and enjoyment from Time Tofu!

Game is pretty fun! I had a small issue with the sound effects controller. It was very hard to click onto the slider and change the volume. A lot of the slider area was not clickable so I had to move my mouse around until I found a spot I could click and drag the volume.

DivinityStripes responds:

Thanks for the feedback! Unfortunately, I think that was a miscommunication on the sound effects controller design.

The sound effects controller was designed to function like a physical knob and slider where you can only change the volume by clicking and dragging the knob. The knob doesn't move to a point on the slider you clicked on. Sorry about that!

I hope you have lots of fun with Time Tofu!

The wall jumping is great and the character is adorable. The soundtrack is also really good. I would recommend this game to anyone who wants to be a little tofu that shoots japanese demons with guns. Seriously though, this game is difficult enough to suck people in from the start, but with a detailed enough tutorial so that newcomers will have an easy time picking it up. If you skip the tutorial it might be rather difficult, as many of the wall jump maneuvers are new and take knowing the basics to succeed at. Outside of that, it has all the basics for a great, addictive game, with varying levels, stages, weapons, and enemies it would be difficult to get bored. I think this game is worth the time I played and well worth it to anyone else to play as well!

DivinityStripes responds:

Thank you for the kind and helpful review! I agree on the fact that unfortunately the game is quite difficult if you don't play the Tutorials. While that may be a failure on the game's design, I think it has something to say about the game's depth. You would have a really hard time if you just jumped into a game like Civilization without a tutorial!

Also, thank you for the comments about the wall jumping and varying components of the game. A lot of time and effort was put into making the controls as tight and responsive as possible. We put in a lot of hours making the game have lots of variety to keep players on their toes as they jump and gun as a time controlling Tofu!

I hope you get as many hours of enjoyment from Time Tofu as we put into making it!
