This game is very clean and polished, the gameplay is nice and responsive and the concept behind it is pretty cool as well. The only caveat I have is that in my opinion the lifetime lasts too long. Also, I think the rewind feature might have been a little too much going on and that the hourglass flip mechanic should've been enough.  Other than that great job!

Very very cool congrats. The sound effects are great. I only wish the tutorial messages would stop showing after a while, but they never did.

Developer

Hi thanks for the feedback, the messages stop after around 130 seconds, then the hardcore mode starts, there will really need to avoid obstacles and go back to the past.

I felt the game was a bit complicated to understand that is why the lonf tutorial.

I absolutely love this game :p the mechanics, the visual effects, and the music are all really original and very intriguing, wonderful job!

Fun game and the hourglass mechanics is very interesting. At a moment notice you could turn a losing run to a winning run (or at least still in the game run ;-) ) with a flip of a hourglass :-)
Excellent pixelart and very smooth animations!
Great job!

This was fun! Enjoyed the sounds and the BGM. Animations were great on the lamps and the power ups. I think the text was a little difficult to read at the beginning in some words, but that's relatively minor. Great job. :)

The graphics look great and I like the concept, one issue I was having though, grabbing the "Flip" powerup which is supposed to flip my hourglass doesn't really do anything, my hourglass would be almost empty at the top and when it flips, the same amount of sand at the top and I lose, but I get the intention, great job overall!

Developer

Ey I added indicators for the sand in each half of the hourglass in the game, now u can also go back in time and added more stuff to make it more clear whats going on

Nice mechanics and beautiful game, did you make the sprites?

Developer

@Greytan made the sprites for the Game, @FoxHoyde made sound and music and I did the programming and development ;)

btw I just upgraded totally the game

Great job! Agree with some of the other comments about movement. I think it's a tad too fast, there's not quite enough time to react. I also had trouble telling the difference between the objects because they looked similar both in color and shape. I hit quite a few lamps thinking they were coins to collect. Pixel art looks great and I really like the concept.

Developer

Hi! I got your feedback, thanks you, I modified the lamp so now u can see it from far, and press SPACE to go back in time

Try it now xD totally upgraded the game, press SPACE to go back in time.

The sprites and animation looked great, especially from the enemies coming out of the little bottles. For the future, improving the text sequence at the start and the UI would be a good start. Great job! 

Developer

Hi! I totally upgraded the game, gotta rework that text indeed, I am not stisfied with it.

Nice little endless run. the writing and mood is excellent. im still unsure how i lost all the sand or how i can refill it in a method to keep going for a long time.

Also, the starting text is to long  with no way to escape the sequence if i want to replay the game after refreshing the page. 

Developer

Hi! Thanks for the feedback. I will change the intro to make it more replayable, you can fastforward the intro tapping SPACE button.
The Djinn still a certain ammount of sand.
The hourglass you find would refill a part of the missing sand :)

Developer

Hi I added particle effects to understand what happens with the sand, I hope you like more now.

You can also scape with SPACE per text or ESCAPE will skip all the text at once, I just indicated in that part of the game, thanks for your feedback

Nice work!

Thanks! Just updated the game for scale haha

The game was pretty good. The movement was sometimes too fast that the player moved a lot of distance in a single frame that it appeared a bit wonky. Great game overall (^^)

Developer

Thanks! Gotta work in that aspect.

Developer

Hi I updated the game, I hope now the movement is something better :)
