Clockboy is in Trouble! The Clock on his head has broke and he has lost his Time. Help Clockboy retrieve bolts and go to the melding stations to fix his Clock. 

Clockboy will reset 15 seconds back if you cant get to the stations in time, as if nothing happened. Being is such a rush, dangers are to arise. Be careful as you reach your Melding stations. There is only enough time to get 3 stations per area, get all the bolts you can!


  • Movement: WASD, ZQSD, or Arrow Keys
  • Select: Click
  • End Level: Backspace
  • Quick Level Reset: Enter


Escape the Rewind is a fun little platformer with inspiration from games like Super Mario Bros and Super Meat Boy. This game was made for a 2 week game jam called "Summer FlowJam 2020" by JR 01 and Baron Wasteland.

Since the Jam, I spent some time updating the movements, graphics, and settings to where I'm comfortable enough to show on Newgrounds. There might be a bonus collecting all the coins, I hope you enjoy the challenge!

If there are issues with the web browser, please try to download the game from itch:



This game was made using Flowlab.io

All the art is made Baron Wasteland

Good fun game

I like the sprite elemenst in this A cool platformer game you have created here for us all to enjoy with a style all on its own and you made it look shiny with all the bells and whistles that make this game complete and it's those fine details that come alive in this platformer like the gameplay was pretty good things responded well and you have a nice theme going on so for me this was a fun platformer and just love the vibe and flavour of this game


(for me) the game was 100% playable and eazy in the chrome version no lag, no bugs, and when you get the boost from walljumpin omg it feels so good, 10/10 best feeling i ever had in a platformer before.

you obviously didn't normalize velocity when jumping at an angle rofl. how could someone miss that?

in short, you jump diagonally at sqrt(2) times the velocity you should. it makes platforming very awkward and you're going to fix it and then reply to this review (or private message but i prefer a response here. my messages are already a very busy space and i have higher priority messages i need to address on a regular basis)

JR01Games responds:

This was made in a 2 week game jam and the velocity is controlled by the x-axis only, the y is controlled by impulses. There is a max x velocity cap in the game, but it doesn't account for the physics drag which can create a slow-down when landing.

The game feels fine when I test it, the level designs are made around the mechanics I've made. If you're experiencing any trouble, I would suggest trying the downloadable version on itch.io

I´m sorry, wall jump don´t work for me, rendering the game unplayable since lvl1. Liked the art and all, but couldn´t play.

PS: I assure you, my PC doesn´t have resources issues. Nevertheless, it worked upon download. Changed rating

JR01Games responds:

Sorry to hear that, the browser game works differently depending on the PC and browser used.
I encourage you to try the download from the itch.io page if you want to give it another try.

Amazing game for people who like high-speed precision platformers(like me!). In the huge level, there are many choices to go, which is very, very fun! Also, clockboy is reaaaaaaaaaaly cute.
