Since it seems to be fashionable right now, I decided to submit this game here on TDC.

So this is my entry for the fourth round of the Tourey running wildly on the forums. At first the game was meant to be purely a shooter action coolness game, but after noticing the possible points from originality, I added there this time-based puzzle feature which quickly became the dominating aspect of the game.
You plays with WSAD, Space, < and mouse. You can also change the keyboard controls by pressing ctrl + Y. The musics were done by Nawby alias Noby.

I hope you enjoy, although this is quite a crappy game overall.

Great work, beating it was just the right amount of hard!

I loved the fact that you could blow people up and stand on them etc, such a great touch. Standing on rocket trails was a godsend though .

Four stars because it could have been more awesome (by there being more of it).

I thought it was a well made game which didn't really have any flaws, but it didn't have anything to make it stand out from the crowd.

What's with the recent outbreak of fantastic games on the Indie scene right now...?

I agree with Nick, I fail to see where the excitement lies, other wise a better than average game.

I felt it was really fun, I really had a good time with this and trying to figure out how to get through. If only it had more levels!

Very fun game, yes.

Hard, but I couldn't stop playing before i beat it.

Fun and very innovative. I didn't think it was too short. It ended very abruptly though. A story would have been nice.

Otherwise no complains, it was great fun!

About the title, why xby?

The title text gets smaller and smaller, so...

Woah, pretty good.
Damnit everyone releases excellent games the same week I do lol.

The level with the rain kinda stumped me... I'll have to give it another go soon.

you have to freeze jump and unfreeze then freeze at the peak of your jump so you can land on the rain. rinse and repeat to jump up through the rain to the top.

this game is great. riddled with tiny flaws but i still enjoyed it.

Well, it's an ingenious concept, but I'm not sure how well it was executed.

I mean, I really didn't like jumping on rain drops and random debris while the time was frozen, and properly timing the very freezing. There were some great ideas, like walking on the laser beams, but it all felt too much based on chance. Anyway, it's also all very short. I was too much interested in completing a level, that getting any jewels. Maybe that says something.

I've seen much better from you in the form of Pencil & Paper and the great FIG. I guess this was a short steam release project?

If you had checked the frums you'd notice this was made in 2 weeks to a compo x)

Well, yeah. Like I said...short steam release project. Then again, maybe a 2 weeks deadline was not relaxing.
Posted by Guru Rinpoche 8th October, 2008

Awesome...the rain jumping was a drag, and it was far too short...

Making a way for users to create their own levels would be a great addition as well.

Great job!
