Reviews

“Toast Time controls, looks, and plays perfectly on the platform. Toast Time is for you.”
5/5 – Touch Arcade

“Toast Time‘s happy facade helps mask a tough, unforgiving, challenging reflex shooter where levels need to be solved.”
5/5 – Big Red Barrel

“A heavy emphasis on humour, not just any humour, it's this kind of over-zealous, over-the-top, nonsensical awesomeness.”
87/100 – Pixel Freak

About This Game

Toast Time is a throwback to the golden age of video games where old-school homebrew titles fused arcade action with a distinctly British sense of humour.

--

An appetising arena shoot-em-up garnished with tower-defence elements and served warm with awesome-sauce (probably syrup).

Inter-dimensional time-blob beasties have sailed the cosmos in pursuit of spare time, and now they've found it, tasted it, on an idyllic Monday morning.

Assume the role of TERRY (toast-ejecting recoil & reload system), a humble and solitary toaster with an uncontrollable love for English breakfasts, hats and scheduling.

Click to launch toast, crumpets and magnitudes of other breakfast paraphernalia at the beasties. Bounce around and crush them with your hot metallic mass. Tip over bins, and use the environments to your advantage. Drink a little coffee and go a little crazy. Do everything it takes to defend toast time – you are Monday morning's final hope. Have your toast and eat it.

Feature List:

  • 54 action-packed missions.
  • 16 exciting bread-based weapons.
  • Iron man survival mode & bonus COFFEE TIME mode.
  • Loads of colourful hats and customisations.
  • Addictive and original gameplay mechanics.
  • Steam Achievements, Leaderboards, Stats, Cloud Save & Trading Cards.
  • Super-slick audio and calibrated soundtrack -- each level has its own piece of music.

I honestly did not get this game. It's obvious its primary platform is mobile phones, since you play in an upright aspect ratio. I found it extremely cumbersome trying to navigate with a mouse, and wonder if it's any easier pointing at a screen on a cell phone.
Otherwise a nifty little game with innovative gameplay, great simplistic graphics and catchy music. I just don't have time to wrestle with the controls like I did, thats all. Thought it more frustrating than enjoyable, but I can see why other people would like it.

Great game, clearly made for mobile, but nonetheless it delivers a nice challenge (if not better even) with the mouse controls. The controls take time to get used to, yes - it's just one button, but when I say controls I actually mean controlling your movement around the screen, since it can get hazardous really fast really quick.

The game is all sweet and cuddly right up until Survival mode - this is when ♥♥♥♥ hits the fan. It's so difficult that the developer didn't even bother coding a proper ending for it (comes up with a file error a few times, no joke), assuming no one will ever get it.
So 100% achievers: Beware!

I appreciate what the developer tried to do with this game, which is develop a minimalistic, retro style arcade game. However, the randomized items together with controls that extremely impede precise movement, I find it hard to recommend the game. The aesthetic is well put-together, the theme is cute, but the game ends up just being frustrating. Instead of having to think how to solve the levels you end up hoping to get the proper item to do the job.

You like toast, right? You wake up in the morning, pop your bread in the toaster. Maybe put a spread of some kind on it.

Well too bad! Minions are here to ruin your breakfast.
Are you going to let that happen?

Fight back with your 8-bit toaster oven!
Outfit him with unlocked hats and clothing! (I prefer the Monocle and Top Hat)
Shoot toast like projectiles at various baddies!
Break crates to get awesome power ups!
Upgrade your bread to exploding bagels, rapid fire english muffins, or the fire baguettes like missles!
Belly-Flop!
Prevent the enemy from reaching the alarm clock!
SAVE YOUR BREAKFAST!!!

Jumpy Toastman jumps a lot while sickeningly catchy music plays in the background and gets stuck in your head for the next few eons - 10/6
