In a bit of a throw­back, Su­per Time Force brings back the sidescroller with its own twist on the retro tale. Con­trary to most time travel sto­ries, here you must mess about with the fab­ric of time, right­ing wrongs and air­brush­ing his­tory as you go. One of the most ap­peal­ing el­e­ments of Su­per Time Force is the abil­ity to “rewind” time up to 30 times in one ses­sion, drop­ping your cho­sen char­ac­ter in the mid­dle of the ac­tion. That es­sen­tially means you can cheat death or re­cover er­rors, al­low­ing you to fin­ish the level within the very short 60 sec­onds al­lo­cated. Each time you rewind time, you cre­ate an­other copy of yourself, which comes in handy as you move through lev­els. It can get chaotic, and some of those 30 lives will be wasted as you find your char­ac­ter quickly bumped off with lit­tle progress. But it’s a fresh take on retro. su­per­time­
