Worldline is an inventive 2D puzzle action platformer where you use your ability to manipulate time to fight back against dangerous entities that corrupt the fabric of reality.
In Worldline you take control of a young hero who has the ability to use six time-bending powers – pause, rewind, slow motion, fast-forward, record (and repeat) and reset. Pausing freezes everything on the screen (except you), rewind rewinds everything on the screen (except you), slow motion slows down everything on the screen (except you), fast-forward speeds you up and allows you to jump higher, record allows you to create copies of yourself that follow your actions and reset allows you to reset your position but leave everything on the screen the same.
You also have a blaster, which comes in handy as there are glitchy other-worldly creatures that you have to deal with. The creatures can have their own time-bending abilities and they can corrupt the game world around them – even causing glitches to appear across your screen.
It’s a promising game with beautiful pixel art visuals and innovative time-bending gameplay. The capabilities of all these time-bending abilities can feel a little overwhelming at first, but once you get to grips with it then it makes for a very well crafted puzzle action platforming adventure. It’s great fun playing around with your abilities and there are often multiple options available to overcome an obstacle. See how you fare combatting the corruption!
