Description

Time Rift is a fast-paced puzzle-shooter. You’re a hacker-turned-security tester, but your skills will only get you so far - to take down global megacorp VaultCo, you’ll have to manipulate the flow of time!

History

Time Rift started its journey as a student project and became an overnight success on Gamejolt where the free prototype of the game gathered over 10,000 downloads. “From the first playtest session from back when we were students over the hugely popular prototype Time Rift just seemed to click with people”, says Lightshards. “For the full version of the game we wanted to up the visuals and sounds of the game, of course, but also keep them simple so we and players could really focus on its core: mechanically interesting fast paced arcade gameplay that challenges your fingers and brain alike.”

Features

  • Unique, fast-paced action-puzzle gameplay that’s a pleasure to master
  • Beat the roving firewall system: a deadly, auto-scrolling bar which can chase you from any direction
  • Master bombs, gates and nodes to execute perfect runs
  • Rewind time to avoid traps and grab that last collectible
  • Flexible difficulty: use slow down mode to assist with difficult tricks, or stop everything
  • Uncover the secrets of VaultCo in an engaging story of corporate sabotage!
