For retro fans, Super Time Force is an absolute delight on the eyes. Colourful 8-bit style visuals explode from the screen in pure unadulterated high definition glory. It’s a gorgeous looking game, make no mistake, and its art style really adds an awful lot to the overall experience.
The game itself isn’t as straightforward as it first appears – a simple side-scrolling platformer or shooter this is not – Super Time Force introduces the concept, as the title suggests, of shifting time to your advantage. Thanks to the different playable characters at your disposal, the mechanics on offer here almost allow you to play cooperatively by yourself. While that may make no sense at all, play a few levels and it’ll all suddenly just click.
