About the Game

When Super Meat Boy meets Braid, you may die repeatedly and enjoy it! With its unique blend of precision platforming and time-stopping physics-based puzzles, feel like a hero when you succeed!



Your name is Ethan, a rat that got touched by meteorites giving him the power of telekinesis: freezing time and moving objects around him. He is now looking for more meteorites that fell in his surroundings to get more power and his revenge against his neighbor who destroyed Ethan's house!

I really dig this game. I stumbled upon it during the sale and it looked like a decent platformer.
Being a fan of the genre I decided to give it a go and I was not dissapointed. I was actually quite impressed.

I'm very competitive so the leaderboard is a really nice feature. After being inspired by the video posted of a Time Attack on the first map I decided to give it a go myself and soon I would find myself battling it out versus one of the developers of the game.

Even if the competitive aspect isn't your forte the game still has a lot to offer. It looks amazing, it controls well and the levels are really well made (and there's plenty of them!)

If you like platformers I can't imagine you'd be dissapointed with this game

I love it! Really fun and not easy. Good combination of jump and run skill with riddles.
Didn´t crash even once and couldn´t spot any bugs so far. Only thing that would be cool is an exit to windows button ingame.
If you quit a game you return to the main screen, have to press enter and then you can exit to windows.

No biggie, just wanted to point it out. :)

A lot better than I expected! 4/5
Pros:
- Very challenging puzzles and platforming.
- Good variety of challenges.
- About 3 leaderboards per stage. Clear time, fragments collected, and pauses used.
- 3 worlds with many stages. The game is hard enough to make you spend a lot of time trying to beat it. (I spent an hour on a stage once...)
- Lots of replayability for every stage due to built-in challenges for low clear time, fragments collected, minimal pauses used and leaderboards.
- Physics are well done. Momentum needs to be manipulated as well. Tons of possibilities.
- Multiple ways to complete stages.
- In-game art/graphics are decent.
- Animations are smooth.
- Quick restarts, instant respawns.
- Controller support (though I prefer KB/M on this game)
- Sound effects are decent 3/5. They don't bother me.
- Music never got annoying, I never felt like I had to turn off the music, even after many hours of playing.
- Steam Card drops.
- Has achievements (better than none)
- No RNG. This is great news for speedrunners. (This would be an entertaining game to see speedruns of, it's like Super Meat Boy)
- No bugs from what I've seen so far. (Aside from a tiny one with the restart dialogue popping up continuously if you spam the confirm button on keyboard or controller)
- Some stages have cheese hidden in hard to reach places.

Cons:
- Story is lacking, but is not absent.
- The opening cutscene to a new game is not very good.
- The game can't be minimized in windowed mode.
- Configuration limited to resolution, VSync, fullscreen/windowed, and FXAA on/off. But you would likely not benefit from any more options than these on this game anyway.
Not many cons, you see. Try it out.

I had this game from a bundle when it was still in greenlight. Thought it looked decent but very Mario alike. Now that Ethan is greenlit I recieved the key and yes, I was right on both parts. Ethan looks decent and is Mario alike.

Okay, Mario alike means a good platformer. Though I never really liked Mario because it was just TOO SIMPLE, Ethan raises the stakes from level to level, getting harder and harder. At some points it's close to unplayable, but I like it. Just take that level with the pogo-stick. I'm glad that the achievement stopped at 10 deaths in a level, because I think I'd get the one with 50 deaths as well. And where I'm now with certain death really following me, and making one bad move I'll die anyway form what's coming from infront. Yes, that's how Mario should have been - HARD and FUN.

Honestly, if I didn't get this game from the bundle, I'm not sure I'd buy it. But now that I have it, I'm very happy to have this one in my collection!
