Reviews for "TimeLine Runner"

Could be very good. But it's more frustrating than challenging.

Terrible, frustrating and dull. The mouse controls are screwy, because if you move an inch to the right or to the left, the speed changes and you don't jump, the music stops when you jump, as well as the world, and there's places in the game where there is no way that you can jump and not hit the obstacle with the head. The only way I could play was with the keyboard, but that's not great either, because I don't know how many times I need to press W. Challenging, but not enjoyable overall. Make a power bar or double jump or better checkpoints in the next one, if you make it. The only 'reson' I am giving this a 1.. is 'beacuase'.. the music was pretty good.... But that's. it!

Nice game. I found the execution could be handled a bit better, particularly talking about the random placement of some objects, but the result is still a really fun and challenging game! Haven't beat it though, halfway through.

Ok, starting with the bad things. I'm sure the random placement of obstacles must been a pain in the ass to make (idk), but it can be a bitch sometimes, almost impossible to pass (Sometimes the opposite). It wouldn't bother me that much, if it wasn't because they are like that at the beginning of the game... It's also weird that the music just stops when the time freezes. It's natural, but it's just really weird. It would help if at those moments it went super slow, or something like that, but cutting of all the sound...

Well, let's leave that aside. Good things. I'd say controls are perfect. Everything is necesary. It's imposible to beat it with keyboard, though. You wouldn't be able to control your jumps well, because calculating the height of the line you draw with mouse it's essential. Also, i found the stopping time while jumping and sliding, GENIUS. It really adds a lot of thinking to the run.

Overall, those two points (Jump and Time Control) are the key to the game, and while being added rather strangely, they work well making this game "stand out", gameplay wise. Plus, the sound and atmosphere don't fall short either... It's just really good! I really liked your game. Brings a lot of "Ohfuckwhatdoido? and "YUUUSSS" moments.

So... Yeah, good luck.

this game has the difficulty of the impossible game and starts you over at the level your on like ninja gaiden on nes

The checkpoint system is pretty stupid imho
