Chronotron

Section: 

This week's Act Casual pick is Chronotron, a puzzle game in which you help a time-bending robot navigate his way through a series of rooms. Each room contains a circuit board, typically tucked away in an impossible-to-reach location, that acts as a sort of exit key. Reaching the circuit board involves repeatedly rewinding time to create a happy little army of robots who can press switches, stack boxes, and the like to clear a path.

Chronotron is a great game built around a clever concept. It's definitely worth checking out, especially if you liked Cursor*10. If any of Chronotron's 40 levels leave you stumped, you can find walkthroughs over at creator Joe Rheaume's website, Scarybug Games.

Wohoo! Thanks for picking my game! One small correction, there are actually 40 levels, including the five bonus levels.

Thanks for making it! And thanks for the correction.

Wow Scary that is a damned fun game.

I'm at Lvl 26 and I've been completely entertained so far.

Very nice job man.

Does it save progress when I come back to it?

Yeah it should, as long as you play on the same computer and browser and have the sharedobjects option turned on in your flash plug-un.
