BardicKnowledge Posted August 12, 2008 Report Share Posted August 12, 2008 I realize that this is almost a week late for the game -- I've been on vacation and couldn't get it until late last night. I was very skeptical spending $15 on any XBLA game, but it's been worth it -- this is the neatest puzzle-based platformer I've ever played. For those of you who don't know about it, it's basically a Mario clone that's incredibly aware of that fact, and the game makes numerous allegorical references to the plumber. In any case, the gameplay is based around the idea that you can reverse time at will infinitely with no penalty (think Prince of Persia with no sand limit). This isn't a problem -- not because you'll need it, but because they do things with the time reversal (and fast forwarding AFTER said reversal) that you won't believe. The art style is also brilliant, but I'll wait for people to try the demo and let me know what they think. I still think the coolest part is that when you reverse time, the music also reverses -- and most of it is composed in such a way that it still sounds good.
