: : : : : Blinx: The Timesweeper

[edit] Background

Blinx: The Time Sweeper is a fast-paced action game featuring a cool, clever new character in wild, warped worlds. The ability to control the flow of time provides a totally new gaming experience only possible on Xbox. Blinx is a cat on a mission to fix glitches in time. With the aid of his trusty and powerful Time Sweeper, the TS1000, Blinx recovers lost time crystals and fights Time Monsters in his attempt to rescue a kidnapped princess and return order to the world.

[edit] Features

  • Time control: Actually control the flow of time, a feature only possible on Xbox. Record actions, play them back, and have dual characters cooperate to complete challenges. Throw the world into slow motion while moving about in real-time. Fast-forward to achieve goals more quickly, or even rewind the world to gain additional opportunities at completing challenges, opening hidden areas and more.
  • Totally twisted worlds: Glitches in time impact the various worlds that Blinx visits. Night and day occur simultaneously, buildings are warped to the point of falling over—things are definitely not as they appear. Visit nearly 40 fantastical levels in warped-reality worlds inspired by Venice, canyons, caves, ancient ruins, and even MC Escher.
  • The Time Sweeper: What would Blinx do without his Time Sweeper? The most important piece of equipment for the job, the TS1000 stores time crystals, picks up trash, and can even come in handy in sticky situations—use the powerful suction to climb vines and ropes or grab ceilings and walls. Throw the TS 1000 in reverse for enough blowing power to blast items at enemies.
  • Upgradeable weapons and abilities: Need extra power to move larger obstacles? Blinx sweeps up trash from the streets to supplement his meager income from the Time Factory. Use the additional wages at the Shop to buy cooler gear and power-ups, which enhance gameplay performance, or to purchase souped-up versions of the Time Sweeper (like the TS2000, TS3000, and the TS-FIRE).
