Timeloop – Unique puzzler now ready to be touched

timeloops_preview1

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.

I have admitted it before and I’ll admit it again: my gaming skills are far from admirable. Add that to inept puzzle-solving abilities, and I am a sad and frustrated lump of a gamer who can barely stretch his digital legs. Fortunately, I thrive on frustration and Connect2Media‘s Timeloop has plenty of it. It is a fun game which places you in the role of Nik, the robotic janitor of a mad-scientist who has just invented the time-machine. As they must, things go astray whilst Nik is cleaning. The result? The professor is trapped and Nik is left with the duty of freeing his boss and recapturing a litter of runaway kittens before time runs out.
