About the Game

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. :)

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!

Dont let the trailer or the demo fool you, after a few levels you will find yourself playing that classic arcade game when you just have to restart levels only to get some luck on a moving platform. If you want to buy this game remember only like 30% of the time will be about solving puzzles.
If you are looking for something that will challenge your intelligence and let you think about a brilliant solution (like I was expecting buying this game) this is not worth your time and money.
