Freeware Garden: HASTE (Time-bending Action)

And thus it begins.

HASTE (Time-bending action) is still an extended prototype, but it’s an accomplished, sleek and impressive first person parkour-’em-up that took me over two hours to beat and definitely not to master. Borrowing ideas from such clever games as Super Hot and Mirror’s Edge, HASTE has you constantly running away for survival. Interestingly, when you run, time runs slower for everything and everyone but you.

Helpful as this sounds though, you should be prepared to die often; HASTE has been designed with the hardcore in mind. Despite the simple, essentially obvious, controls you have only seconds to take in the surrounding geography, plan a route and start running and jumping — in first person of course.

You’ll sprint through parking lots and over roofs, you’ll navigate a demented BMX track, avoid toxic waste waves and hanging wires, survive crumbling buildings and eventually make it to the subway station and your escape from the rather dangerous Sector C. Your speed-run, you’ll be happy to know, has also been a very successful test of a muscle-enhancement technology. Also, if you were fast enough and collected all the secrets you may have even achieved a highscore. I’ve seen videos of actual people escaping in less than four minutes. Just saying.

    I can’t download it: “bla blah may harm your browsing experience, so Chrome has blocked it.” Something, somewhere, resembles malware or phishing software, or some bit of Windows thinks it does. The only option I get given is to dismiss the file. Strange.

      It’s because your installation of Java is out of date. Firefox uses a native plug-in for this, so it’s the Java Runtime that pops up and tells you about it. Chrome has a very strange plugin system where it’s supposed to take care of that for you but fails some of the time.

      So yeah, just update Java.

    Earning money online was never been easy as it has become for me now. I freelance over the internet and earn about 75 bucks an hour. Get more time with your family by doing jobs that only require for you to have a computer and an internet access and you can have that at your home. A little effort and handsome earning dream is just a click away……………….

    Argh, It’s like someone played Mirror’s Edge for an hour, and decided that it wasn’t frustrating and fiddly enough.
