Connect2Media, the same devs who brought us the well received Go Go Rescue Squad, has released Timeloop, a unique puzzle game where the player must use short jumps in time (aka Timeloops) to travel back in time in order to help their previous self solve puzzles. While this may sound strange at first, you’ll quickly grasp the concept and come to appreciate what Timeloop will have to offer. Here’s what shigzeo wrote in his excellent in-depth look at the game:
But that is where this game is ingenious. Most of the puzzle-solving is done with regards to opening doors to the next room. Some are straight-forward, requiring only the overhaul of one remote-control desk. Others, however, require Nik to go back in time, duplicate and shadow his former self and finally, perform the needed action…Timeloop rocks. Its graphics are light-hearted, silly, and colourfully perfect for its theme. There are cute comic-book cut sequences and good humour all about this game.
Released at the promotional price of $0.99, Timeloop is certainly easy on the pocket and should please gamers looking for their next puzzler that has great visuals and one that introduces new and unique gameplay elements. More info, including gameplay video after the jump.
Ever wished you could be in two places at once? Well in TIMELOOP you can! Those crazy scientists have invented a time machine but it has malfunctioned. Now they are trapped in time and rapidly running out of oxygen, only Nik, the janitor droid, can save them! But one Nik isn’t enough, so he uses the time machine to TIMELOOP, sending himself back in time, repeatedly if necessary, to save the day! As the game progresses the puzzles become increasingly difficult, strategic thinking becomes essential and timing is everything. With multiple Niks working alongside one another there is always more than one way to rescue the scientists. With 32 levels to solve, most with multiple solutions, the game is stuffed with cunning puzzles, unique wit, and some very cute cats to save along the way!
