10Tons is going all in on the Switch. First came Neon Chrome, then Jydge, and now Time Recoil. The studio that top-down shooters built is going full bore into Nintendo’s handheld, and Thursday marks the launch of the time-warping shooter Time Recoil. With a $13.99 price-tag, it could be the perfect game for those looking to shoot some stuff without the highly Neon aesthetic of the studio’s other games.
What is Time Recoil?
Time Recoil is an explosive slow-motion top-down shooter. The player is given a superpower: Kill to slow time. Killing triggers time slowdown, and additional kills extend the slowdown period and charge a special move. The more the player is able to kill, the more powerful the special move becomes all the way to full time freeze.
Time Recoil is a story of rebellion and revenge. The player is a member of a rebel organization fighting against a mad scientist dictator, Mr. Time. The rebels use a time machine to travel through time to locate and eventually kill Mr. Time – before he finds the rebels and destroys them.
- Kill to slow time – every enemy you kill will grant you more time in slow motion.
- Earn special moves: The longer your kill-combo, the more powerful your ability.
- Travel into the past with wormholes and finally kill Mr. Time!
- Try to earn all the stars and climb the leaderboards in Time Attack mode.
