Thanks for posting Slewis7, it's a puzzler so I had to try it, there was an article about it last week on TA so I knew it was coming.

The game looks better on the Ipad than on the screenshots thank god, I like it, when you swipe down you go forward and when you swipe up you go back in time, because you have a given time to complete each level and every swipe fills up your clock meter, very interesting this game.

I got this early, thought I still had a few days to play before it releases. I'm a little over halfway through the game and it has some super tricky puzzles. Here's the first set, before the time traveling is added:

The game Icon doesn't match with the game or gameplay or is that just me, game is great though.

I have a few gripes with it but overall yes. Very tricky turn-based game. It's very strict in that you have to complete it in a certain number of moves, and weird stuff can happen in chapter 2 and beyond. It's very user-friendly in that you're never forced to start over from scratch. Just rewind even if a man dies or you run out of moves, etc. Reminds me of Snakebird in that regard, as most puzzle games even with an undo button are not so forgiving about death.

I just saw this game by chance on STEAM. I am pleasantly surprised that it also arrives on the iOS so soon. Fantastic!

It also feels really good on iOS. Very simple controls. No iCloud, though.

This is excellent. Seriously, total package stuff. Small file size, instantly original (think PoP: Sands of Time Trilogy meets Chu Chu Rocket? ), smart puzzles, low power mode, colorblind mode (thank you, thank you, thank you)...it feels very Apple Design Award-ish. Took a risk and I'm glad it paid off!

Everyone's favorite chamber of death, doom and decomposition.
