Time Recoil is an explosive slow motion top-down shooter by 10tons – the creators of Crimsonland and Neon Chrome. In Time Recoil the player is given a super power: Kill to slow time. Killing will enable slowdown and in slowdown a special move is charged – the more you kill the more grandiose the move. The player starts with a simple dash and ends with a full time freeze.
Time Recoil is a story of rebellion and revenge. The player is the last hope of a rebel organization who wants to free the world from the grip of an evil mad scientist dicator: Mr. Time. The rebel organization also has a super power: A machine that lets you travel through time. The plan is to first locate Mr. Time and then travel there through time to kill him – before he finds the rebels and destroys them.
If you’ve played any of 10tons previous games and have liked them, then you’ll probably like Time Recoil because of its similarities. From what I’ve played so far, the gameplay is solid and the slowdown of time mechanic makes it different from their previous games. Overall another solid indie game from the folks at 10tons. Check it out.
