Play OverviewPlay Overview

At the Hedges of Time (2021) is a puzzle game where you help Sir Montaclé escape the hedge maze and free himself from the witch's curse. It's a block pushing puzzle with a twist: you can rewind time. However, not all the blocks are affected by time.

Play involves moving blocks onto switches to open doors and solve traps. It starts simply but needs considerable lateral thinking and forward planning. It's the sort of game that appears to be broken and impossible to solve, until you figure out the solution.

The result is a fascinating game with well designed levels that has a surprisingly strong narrative by the end.

Our examiner, Andy Robertson, first checked At the Hedges of Time 2 years ago. It was re-examined by Jo Robertson and updated 23 months ago.
