AMAZING.

You are a character, who starts the level, goes and does something, and then goes back to his time machine. Then, you GO BACK IN TIME and watch yourself doing it, and you can do something else. So, Hades 1 sits on a button that opens a door for 10 seconds, then runs over to spot A, Hades two waits for 30 seconds before jumping on a button which turns spot A into a ramp taking earlier Hades home. Now, Hades 3 has to jump down, go through the open door, grab the dongle, then make it to the spot OTHER Hades is waiting so Hades 2 can jump on the switch and take them both home.

Complex? Sure.

Fun? Betcha!

I used to think piracy was bad, because I first heard about it by people who didn't understand it. I understand piracy now. Piracy is good.

So it's kind of like Braid?

I guess I'll find out when/if I get time to play it.

Oh, wait.

Sure - yeah, similar, but free and flash, and you get a BUNCH of you's walking around. On level 21 right now, LOVE IT.

I completed the game with no walkthroughs, but it was very frustrating at times. There's a similar game to this (I'll dig for it) where the final level is more or less impossible, I only made it because someone else showed me, and HE used a walkthrough.

The answers in this game are all logical and possible, so added fun/win

It's still totally rad. I don't remember the music before but it was probably there. It's a nice challenge to think temporally, unlike the linear gameplay we're so used to.

I also just realised that the last time I played Level 10 in exactly that fashion. I raced around trying to hit all the buttons in time to grab the goal box thing with just one instance of myself. Now that I think back, I'm amazed I managed to do it. You should try that.

I'm stuck at Level 11 at the moment.

The thing I liked about it is, everything is totally do-able. I found in Portal that some of the 3d challenges were a little to tough for me. I think 2d, and the 3d first perspective made it a LOT harder
