Time warpist

Well, it’s been a while since my last prototype. Since we don’t have anything IGF-related to do for a while, I found some time to make a prototype. Experimental Gameplay Project was kind enough to lend a theme, so here we are. This is also my first shot at prototyping in java πŸ™‚

Update! Fixed the “can’t run on 64-bit java” problem, and the frame-rate problem.


Time warpist is a game based on the Experimental Gameplay theme for november, Night and Day. I’ve been wanting to experiment with this kind of gameplay for some time. Besides that, I wanted to try and make a decent platformer, and I think it turned out pretty well. Also, fairness isn’t really something characteristic to the other platformers I made, So I tried to make this one as fair as I could. Hope you enjoy all the 16 levels πŸ™‚


Arrow keys – move
S – jump
D – warp time
Space – reset level


If you have problems getting the game to run I’d suggest installing the newest JRE.
