    Chronology is a product worthy of being purchased by all fans of puzzle games. It's original, it's cool, it's innovative in its own way, despite some ideas have been partially taken from other products of the same genre.

    Chronology is an inspired and decent indie platform / puzzle, but the short duration is something you should consider before the purchase.

    It’s a shame then that a game which is so well designed is hit by a pretty massive flaw, which is its length.

    Aside from the short length, there isn’t much that Chronology does wrong. The platforming is competent and it controls pretty solidly; the puzzling is well thought-out and intuitive, and the gameplay interesting and varied. But none of the elements truly excel either, leaving you with the feeling that, whilst enjoyable, this is a game that could have been great were a few more risks taken.

    Chronology is just asking to compare it to Braid, even though it is a mediocre game.

    Fun to play but two hours of gameplay are not enough.

    An interesting puzzle game that reminded us of Braid's time related puzzles. It lacks rhythm and ambition, but fans of the genre should give it a try.

    There is no doubt there are good intentions behind this game, but there are no aspects worth highlighting. Still, it works for as long as it lasts.

    Chronology is a pleasant platformer with emphasis on puzzle solving. Unfortunately, the puzzles are too simple to entertain. The charming graphics and the music are very generic and does not impress at all. All of this combined makes it difficult to remember that it indeed is a competent game.

    Chronology is a great example of how a few warts can taint an otherwise pretty package.

    I really liked this game and what it had to offer. The reviews all say that this is a very short game, but I'd rather want a good short gameI really liked this game and what it had to offer. The reviews all say that this is a very short game, but I'd rather want a good short game than a long bad game. I loved the art style, the music and the puzzles, and I didn't encounter any problems with the game at all. Overall a very polished game and a good experience! Full Review »

    Beautiful atmospheric and fun Chronology is not far away from being a really quite excellent game. Unfortunately, the story isn't strongBeautiful atmospheric and fun Chronology is not far away from being a really quite excellent game. Unfortunately, the story isn't strong enough to carry it and it ends just as the puzzles are hitting their stride. So well worth a look but maybe wait for it to pop up on the Steam sale.

    A pretty good game, good music, good graphics, good story. Giving it 7/10 because it's just too much like Braid, Limbo and many other similarA pretty good game, good music, good graphics, good story. Giving it 7/10 because it's just too much like Braid, Limbo and many other similar indie puzzle platformers. The time traveling mechanics is pretty basic (there are just 2 words, the past and the future), and the game is pretty short. But it's well worth its modest price. Full Review »
