In The Time Tower your goal is to get to the end of a clock-themed obstacle course as fast as possible. There are many fun hazards along the way, but be careful! If you take more than 10 seconds to beat a level, you will be taken back to the last checkpoint.

(2022-11-13 Update: 

-Reset Button. Press 'R' on keyboard or 'Select' on gamepad to respawn at the last checkpoint. Hold Down to reset the whole game. 

-Death timer doesn't begin ticking till the player leaves the checkpoint.

-Added checkpoint to first level)

I CANT BEAT THE FREAING LAST LEVEL 馃が馃が馃が馃が馃が

Edit: I replayed the game and beat it... Time :2:49:06

Per the request in your YouTube video I beat your time of 1:16.91 with...

My first clear time was around 6:30-something.
It's actually funny. One of my first attempts at trying to beat your time, I actually ended up getting a time of 1:16.9...2. Literally off by a frame.

Watched the vid. Game look gud

First clear: 8:55.48


My two biggest issues were that the clock does not reset when you reset, and input buffering/held jumping.

In section 10 in particular, the first issue is the biggest. You have an error window of about 1 second, and very often you'll end up waiting on the platforms to spawn for well over that.

For the other issue, I often found I held spacebar too long when falling and would accidentally input a jump. A command to trigger a jump should only be triggered by the frame the ButtonDown event is triggered.

Sometimes I have to reset because the gears/platforms are at the wrong position at the wrong time.

For example, there could be 2 seconds left on the countdown, but the platform in front of me is deactivated, so I need to waste those seconds waiting for the platform to activate again, and the countdown runs out through no fault of my own. Basically, everything is unsynchronized and that's a little frustrating.

Also, gears are least platformable shape.

To be fair though, most of this stuff doesn't really matter until the last level. The game is quite enjoyable up until that point.
