REVIEW: Time Loader Prologue

Review by Jon Donnis
Time Loader is being released in 2021, but before it is released Flazm Interactive Entertainment (a Lithuanian video game developer) have released a prologue of the game to give people chance to play the first few levels. So I decided to check it out.

Time Loader is a story-driven, physics-based puzzle platformer, basically you control a small robot that is sent back and forward in time to prevent a tragic accident. Sounds cool right! And it is. As you explore the house you get to solve puzzles, upgrade your robot and try to reach hard to access areas. All the while little things you do will have an effect on the future, so plan carefully.


The main game play revolves around using your robot to jump, climb and swing to get where you need to go, you have a handy arrow and on-screen instructions that tell you where you need to go, but it is up to you to figure out how to get there. And if you think this game will be easy you will be pleasantly surprised at how devilishly tricky some parts are. And just when you think there is no way to proceed you might find a nice little upgrade that will help you find the way.

The Good
This is a fun little game, I loaded it up purely out of curiosity and a few hours later I finished the prologue, very addictive and something I just had to finish. The controls are relatively easy, I played with the keyboard and mouse, not sure if a gamepad works or not as didn't try it, I assume it does and might make it easier. But either way it is a great game, the graphics are great and give you a cool perspective of the world around you.

The Bad
Nothing really, only moan is that a couple of times I got stuck, but eventually I managed it so all was good.

Overall
The Prologue is free, so get it, play it, and if you enjoy it, wish list the full game and get it when it comes out. You literally have nothing to lose.

I score the prologue a fantastic 9/10. Looking forward to the full game.
