After the behemoth of a project that was Homeward Adventure, here's a much smaller and easier hold to digest! It revolves around time tokens rooms that aimed to be somewhat open-ended enough to give the player some breathing room in execution. This was somewhat achieved, though some rooms are more precise. But you shouldn't need to mess with your time clone's time stream much, if at all.

This hold was inspired by Temporal Anomaly of TSS, my favourite level in the hold and IMO the best use of time tokens I've seen.

Tester credits in the hold. Sorry if I missed anyone!

Enjoy!

I definitely appreciate the motivation behind the creation of this hold.:)
Timeclone rooms require weird thinking, and there 's plenty of puzzle potential even without having to disrupt the prior time stream.

A good timeclone room is constructed so that excessive rewinding/replaying isn't required. The rooms here do a good job of keeping each puzzle tight without getting too crazy. Nice job.

This hold has some great timeclone rooms, and none of them require complex execution, which I appreciate. It's not even all that large a hold, so you don't have much excuse to not take a look.
