  • A little bit of puzzle - platformer.
  • The game was made for the Brackeys Game Jam 2020.2
  • Theme: "REWIND"
  • Idea: The key will be controlled by the Magi by using his hat. He can't control his own time, but he can control other inanimate things like keys, for example.

  • Jump = Space
  • Rewind = Z
