Blades of Time is a loose continuation of the action game/TPP X-Blades. Once again we take control of the treasure hunter Ayumi, who, however, does not resemble the same girl from the previous game. The authors decided to change the artistic approach to the project of the main character, who now resembles less the character from Japanese animation.

We land on an exotic island inhabited by strange and dangerous creatures. Among other things, we travel through mysterious temples, ice-covered areas, tropical forests and skies of the cities. We collect the artifacts left behind, solve puzzles and step by step we learn the mysterious history of the island captured by an ominous magical force.

Ayumi uses a range of weapons, firearms and magic to fight his opponents. A total of 40 different spells and skills can be unlocked. The biggest attraction of the Blades of Time is the ability to control time. The developer borrowed solutions known from the Braid game. So we can scroll back and forth a dozen or so seconds, creating up to six clones of the main character. A clone then performs the activities that Ayumi did before the time went back. The patent perfectly checks during the fight and when solving simple puzzles, e.g. when it is necessary to move several levers at the same time.

In Blades of Time, the developer gave up Japanese anime styled graphics used in X-Blades and opted for realism. The visual setting is therefore suggestive, sometimes dark and at the same time very impressive.

The title also offers a cooperation mode that allows the second player to take control of the mentor of the main heroine, Zerand. In addition, the game includes a traditional deathmatch played in special arenas.
