The game plot, characters, and storyline

The game features a little girl who is the main character in this game. With her is a cat that acts as her companion. The game starts in a very interesting way. A girl wakes up and finds herself in a strange place full of robots. The robots are not friendly. She decides to run from this place, looking for a way out. That’s the time when she realizes she has a special power. This is the power of time, where she can explore the past and the future to reach safety. She meets a cat in the game, and both the girl and the cat have to be taken to safety.

The game involves a series of puzzles that are essentially stealth puzzles. The girl moves through various realms. Each of these realms has puzzles that need to be cracked to move ahead. Once you complete the puzzles, you will move to the next realm. In this way, you need to keep completing puzzles in this game. Apart from the basic plot, there is no storyline as it is all about solving puzzles until you reach the end.

The gameplay

The gameplay calls for co-operative effort where you need to control not just the girl but also the cat. It can look daunting initially, but once you get the hang of it, you will find it quite easy. The game controls are fairly simple. Use the A and D keys to manipulate time just like a media player, going backward and forward in time. You can press the spacebar key to activate the special abilities of the child that can be enhanced by finding special orbs in the various realms. The game has mazes with security drones guarding them. You need to clear the mazes.

The cat can ‘meow’ and distract guards, allowing you to escape. There are pressure plates in the game, and the cat will be very helpful in opening doors using the pressure plates. There are many tight corners in the game that only the cat can crawl through. This is a co-operative game played by one player playing with two characters. The game puzzles are quite simple and easy to play. Once you clear a level, you can even see the playback of your game. You can either use time to avoid confrontation with guards, or you get the ability to fight and use it to blast the guards. This is a simple game with minimalist graphics, but one that’s great fun to play.
