First person shooter with the ability to do multiplayer while solo.

How does that work? You get 4 tries on each section. Nothing changes in those 30 second sections. The blocks all spawn in the same areas, but it's overwhelming for just one person. So, you get the ability to choose between 6 different weapons that you can level up with various options like the ability to add damage over time, split your weapon's beams or rockets, cause collateral damage, etc.

All in all it's a seriously fun game.

Decent graphics
Tight controls
Upgrades for weapons
4 tries for each section gives you ample attempts to upgrade your gear
Plus you get to pick any weapon and have infinite ammo (no reloading)

Time Rifters is an FPS PC game of an arcade shooter style game that has a nice 5 weapon upgrade system. The enemy is a combination of 3 different types of cubes that are either stationary or moving in a tower defense enemy wave like style.

Each level has 4 rounds, and you record what you did in the 1st round, and then, your play with the recorded version of you in the previews round about four times.

The level design is enjoyable and the workshop system is simple and fun to use.

I recommend this game for any fps fan that enjoys arcade weapon upgrade system. For a short story less game play fun.

Great concept of "recording movements and shoot" on game play. I suggest finish all campaigns to feel the beauty of this game. Also, the colours and music are very nice and match with the game mood ... : ) ,, ...
I like this game and it is kind of "Fun and Competition" type game in my opinion. A colourful FPS-Arcade game.

I hope they make Version 2 or add extera levels.

Climbed out of map, found rainbow bridge, climbed up skyscraper, found secret, skydived, missed target, fell off bottom of map, got teleported to top of map (instead of falling forever and having to restart like every other game I've fallen under the ground in), skydived again, hit target, options menu opened. 10/10

Yeah, this was all just in the main menu. XD

All jokes aside the mechanic is really cool and it's fun to try out the levels using different guns/gun orders/gun upgrades and to play all the custom levels people have been making.

Level creation is cool, it's fairly easy to use and doesn't take long to get used to, though it could do with a few more interactable objects and the ability to really test out a room properly without having to make an arena with it or submit it to the steam workshop, could also use the ability to fly while building since it can get annoying to build tall structures when you keep falling off.

Music is awesome.

Definately value for money, don't even bother waiting for it to go on sale, just buy it, NOW.
