Tempus Review

Introduction

TEMPUS is a puzzle adventure game with time travel.  Each time you advance, you will see the island where you live change over thousands of years.  You can only travel forward so it is a one way trip, how far will you go?

Review

One night everything changes and a blinding light appears along with a thunderous sound – as you approach, the light disappears revealing a portal and some instructions.  As you enter, you discover that it is a time travel portal and you appear in your home, but 200 years in the future.  You soon realise that this is a one-way trip as you cannot travel backwards in time, only forwards.

A pretty puzzle game with serene music and creepy shadowy figures.  Puzzles aren’t my specialty, and they did beat me near the end of one of the levels – I just couldn’t figure out this particular puzzle, and I even spent longer than I would usually trying to solve it, but it became boring so I had to quit.

If puzzles are your jam, this game is definitely for you – there are puzzles at every turn with a nice mystical element as to why you’re travelling into the future, why you seen to be the only civilian, and what the point of it all is.

There are 5 levels, with each level having a handful of puzzles.  The point of the puzzles is to turn switches from red to green to progress further into the story, and travel even further in time.

To platinum; this depends on your skill level of solving, and your enjoyment of puzzles – however, I would say it would take between 1-3 hours to get the platinum. 

Rating

Rating: 3 out of 10.

Pros:

  • Challenging puzzles
  • Serene music
  • Interesting story concept

Cons:

  • Puzzles – if not your favourite thing
  • Controls can be a little janky 

Summary

A pretty puzzle adventure game. Can be challenging if, like me, you’re not really into difficult puzzles, or your ability to focus wavers if you constantly fail. That being said, I did enjoy the 1.5 hours that I played.
