Description

Time Rift: Escape from Speedjail is a fast-paced puzzle-shooter, crash through causality and rewind time to escape from the 60 stages of Speedjail. Thinking fast, avoiding traps and a steady aim will only get you so far - to beat Time Rift you’ll have to manipulate the flow of time! You’re trapped in Speedjail, an environment constantly moving in one direction that is deadly to the touch. The only way to survive is to shoot your way through enemies, navigate through narrow mazes and change the jail’s direction of movement in mind-bending puzzles - all under intense time pressure. A feat that would be almost impossible were it not for 3Li4, the ship's artificial intelligence, that gives you the ability to manipulate and even rewind time.

History

Time Rift: Escape from Speedjail 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

  • 60 Stages: Master each stage of the progressively more difficult main mode
  • Level editor: Build your own Speedjails and share them with other players
  • Leaderboards: Hunt for the highscore and be the fastest Time Rifter on Earth!
  • Adaptive Music: 80s-inspired soundtrack that adapts to the challenges you encounter!
