No Time to Explain started life as a short flash game playing around with the same idea as this title has at the start. For its retail release, however, No Time has been fleshed out to a huge degree, packing a ton more highly diverse levels and a number of challenges, plus lots of completionist items to find.There’s a high degree of variety here, and while between chapters the game can sometimes feel completely different from what players were previously experiencing, it’s all held together by underpinnings of common mechanics.The variety in the levels is what makes No Time to Explain so much fun. Where No Time really excels is in humor. It’s bubbling over with craziness, whether it’s the painful screams of your future self or the themes of the various stages.All that positive outlook aside, my time with No Time was fraught with serious bugs and technical issues. The one that plagued me most was a graphical glitch concerning your aiming cursor for the laser cannon.I hit a second almost-game-breaking bug later in the game during one of the boss fights, where I couldn’t trigger a win condition.That said, No Time is fun and very funny, and often its platform design is intelligent as well as fresh and challenging. At its small price, I’d say that it’s worth the gamble that bugs won’t crop up.
