Liked the game, but felt more like a little puzzle and not a roguelike.
Didn't feel the influence of randomness or any challenge. Tough the time-stop mechanic is a good addition, makes it too easy for the player.
Interesting combat mechanic! There are time pressures operating on different scales: at the short time scale there are the area-of-effect attacks that are about to land, or the time-freeze meter running down. On a longer time scale there is the loss of air from the level. I liked the Newton's cradle effect when pushing a line of monsters.
The graphics are clear and functional. The overlapping attack displays work well, for instance, and the time-freeze tints the whole screen which is good. One minor polish I would have liked is for keyboard input to interrupt turn animation.
Balance-wise, I felt like the time pause and damage were the most valuable upgrades, with the health and air supply being relatively unnecessary. Once I got some practice with the combat it felt a little bit monotonous, but it's still a solid 7DRL!
