Enjoyable Puzzle - A Bit Fiddly, March 31, 2015
by Matt W (San Diego, CA)This is a nice, humorous puzzle game involve time travel and paradox management. You must take copious notes in order to arrive at the solution. The timing in the game feels somewhat fiddly -- things occur at certain times and you must know to the minute when they do, but it's hard to tell if they happen before or after the clock tick. And I'm pretty sure the time travel mechanic is handled inconsistently -- sometimes I'd arrive before a clock tick and sometimes after. This meant that I had to experiment to find the correct timing. I suppose it's possible to beat this game on your first playthrough, but extremely unlikely. However, once you've figured out how to proceed through the game, subsequent playthroughs can be tedious, particularly since the machine is tedious to operate after the 20th time or so. And it's entirely possible to miss a crucial action near the beginning and have to restart.
I really liked the premise of the game, and it's reasonably solid in execution. With a little polish, it could go next to Suveh Nux on my shelf of favorite one-room puzzlers.
