I hadn't played a game that uses the "rewind mechanic" so well since Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time. A very challenging and satisfying puzzle platformer that gives life to cinematic manoeuvres (i would be curious to play it with a fully animated character). Very nice "geometric pixel art" too. Kudos!
A downloadable game for Windows
You have 20 seconds to stop the mighty Blant from destroying the world.
To do this you can use:
Time Control - slow down, speed up and even reverse time to your advantage
Rockets - blast crystals and propel yourself to great heights
Move - WASD / Arrow Keys
Jump - W / Up Arrow / Space
Control Time - Scroll Wheel
Pause or Resume Time - Middle Mouse Button
Fire Rocket - Left Click
Game made for the GameMaker 20 Jam #GM20

I really like the idea and the way you realize it! I think that with some tutorial level it can be more enjoyable because it's really hard to play :D
Yeah, it definitely needs a tutorial. I was hoping to make a tutorial and some more easier levels to give the player a chance to learn but ran out of time (for some reason you can't slow down time in real life). Thanks for playing!
I could't beat the boss but i did two successful attacks on him XD. The game feels like a combination between braid and super meat boy :D
I might try later to actually defeat him
I really liked how the sounds and music shifts as the speed changes or reverses. I also appreciate games where every point is a checkpoint ^__^
