Please, Please No. - Seriously, No.

This game is terrible (such so that I have it in a folder named "Terrible" for which is was the first game to be placed into). Its an amazing game in concept that I would love to give the chance to be great...if it could manage to do that. Its a piece of garbage that is thrown together into a contraption that just barely manages to reach its goal (oh wow, I totally just explained the entirety of the gameplay)

Is it a cool idea, yes. Is it a fun game, ...hard to say because its basically unplayable. Several times has this game refused to work...or has done something so ...wrong I can't fix it even with the included time rewind. Imagine Prince of Persia: Sands of Time with its time rewind except instead of being a game mechanic that is cool and awesome its a tool used to make sure that if you break the game you can rewind to when it wasn't broken. can rewind time...which is ONLY used to fix mistakes either you or the game has made.

There are some levels I remember playing that I don't know what to do on, the goal is obviously there, but no meaningful solution is there to reach it. Most the time, I just tried to get as many flying items as I could to strap to myself to fly over everything so I wouldn't have to deal with the terrible game.

Finally, I know in full well that I did not beat this game and so I cannot honestly say my review has full credible weight...but I did give it a good try, I wanted this game to be fun and work.. knowing full well it could be bad. I was let down, I write this in hopes that you are not let down. I would say.. perhaps plead with you to not get this. Its not a bad game, its unplayable.

Tries to be unqiue but ends up being slow. Takes forever to do just about anything. Had a lot of potential though.

While this game looks and sounds pretty interesting, it's not very good. It's not that's that terrible a game, it's just that it's not worth your time or money.

Don't get me wrong, it started out fun. The whole "build your own vehicle from found parts" idea is interesting, but it quickly gets tiring and annoying when things don't go together the way they should.
The explanation of how things work isn't very good, especially your ability to rewind time. And the level design is pointlessly confusing and some sections are unfairly punishing. There was more than one level that I spent much more time on than I needed to, just because I didn't understand where I was suppose to go next.

And that's not to mention all the times I got stuck because the game bugged out and failed to register something I did. The worst example of this was on the very last level, when I got the last piece of the time machine (which is your overall goal for the game). I attached it to the rest of the time machine, and that (apparently) should have ended the level. Instead nothing happened, and I spent another hour or so trying to find where I was suppose to go next. I tried rewinding time to re-recieve the part, to trigger the end, but that didn't work either. It wasn't until I replayed the whole level that it finally worked.

I'm happy to be able to say I got to the end of this game, but I haven't completed it. There are so many things (toasted sandwiches & robot heads) to find, and achievements to do, it's pretty hard to complete.

That said, some of the dialogue is pretty funny, and the environments are pretty cool. It really was fun to start with, but it ended up a bit of a chore to get to the end. Also, the controls are wack!

Overall, had this game had half the bugs, it would've been pretty good. Unfortunately, it's a buggy mess.

Aaaww c'mon. IT's a really, really good concept... that's really, really badly executed. The controls are so awful, it's a chore trying to cross a simple pit, you can die from falling off a small cliff (or something from not falling at all, because loading saves is real glitchy). And to top it off, it's ridiculously slow. Man, such a disappointment.

This is such a bad game that I sought it out in my Steam list again just to tell you how bad of a game it is. It's charmless and soulless, the controls are immensely frustrating, and the puzzles would be ♥♥♥♥-easy if the game functioned well enough to do them. Don't buy this game - don't even think about buying this game.

Nice idea, horribly executed. The game plays and looks like a mediocre Newgrounds title and its core mechanic doesn't work that good at all. Its worst feature is in my opinion the music, which is horribly "composed" and sounds even worse than General MIDI.
Do yourself a favour and avoid this game at all costs!

The main thing about this game is that you can invent things with wheels, propellers and springs. The problem is that once you've designed a two-wheeled bike with an umbrella, spring and rotablades all round, in some sort of trash-pile mess, you realise that there's very little imagination needed. Glue all parts to the engine and it works. Also, poor, generic level design will have you easily forgetting what level you are on; there's green, there's ice and there's fire. Not that any of these are particularly well done either. The designers just assumed you'd come across the levers that open the doors without giving you any indication where they should be or what they open.

The building is as irritating as the physics are twitchy. The movement off vehicle is slow and you'll often die because he fell in a certain way.

And let's not forget the 'hilarious' banter between Sack and the Doc. Which wouldn't be a problem except that the speech bubble also gets in the way sometimes.

I also had a problem when the game decided to corrupt all my saves at one point. Not something I've seen in a game for a long time. Might be a one off.

On the plus side, you can rewind time to correct any mistakes. You'll be using this a lot. Not because you will fail but because it is easier to rewind than rebuild after being hit by a projectile that came from an enemy outside the screen.

If you want to use your creative mind to solve puzzles (not that there's much puzzling here) try Crayon Physics instead.

- Half-cynical humour provided by your bag.
- Fun to fly around once you get the parts to do it.

- Physics can be unpredictable.
- You can get "locked" in place by the environment.
- If you fall a few feet too far you die.

The back-wind-mechanic is pretty much /unstuck since you will no doubt again and again be wedged between different objects, get knocked over by one of your wheels, fall down somewhere, have your vehicle roll of a cliff because you're too slow to go after it...

Putting the vehicle together is a pain as the arm can't quite place them as you'd want - the physics doesn't allow you to place wheels underneath the seat. For short, the developer solution was that you can theoretically put everything "inside" the seat, with just a bit sticking out, and it will still work.

The game took about 2 hours for me to beat, and then there was a lot of stubborn-ness in not wanting to rebuild the vehicle, since it's always a pain.

It had great promise and was enjoyable to some extent (thus why it was finished to the end) but all of the hassling around the physics makes me not able to really recommend the game. Took me a week to beat it since I couldn't stand playing it for too long at a time.

Played "casually", one level or so at a time or 10 minutes at a time... sure. You can save and quit at any point. Just don't expect an all-over enjoyable experience.

The game has a unique portable inventory idea. You pick up items you find and carry them with you and use them in combinations to get through the game. Unfortunately, lacking a jump, having slow movement, wonky animations (especially when 'climbing' things) just makes the game a chore to actually control. Good luck to anyone who can actually enjoy this game through its really awkward controls. I do not recommend this.

Thought this was ♥♥♥♥. Uninstalled.

Came back several months later and decided to give it a second shot. Maybe I was hasty.

Nope. It actually is ♥♥♥♥.

It just doesn't seem to work the way it was intended. I found it difficult to push forward at the very beginning of the game which is not a good thing to occur at all.

This was a game that had potential - think the good mash-up games like Amazing Alex, and then give it broken game mechanics and physics.

I remember the one stage I was stuck on wasn't because I did not know what to do - it was because the contraptions always fell apart to the point it was unuseable. After about 15 attempts to get something that stuck together, I said I was done with it.

Occassionally, I will look at my steam library and say "Maybe I should try the game again" before chuckling to myself and skipping over it. At least I only paid 49 cents for it on a steam sale, so I only wasted time, and not time AND money.
