causality [mobile paid]

In each level of the paid mobile puzzle game 'causality' by Loju you have to help a group of stranded astronauts find a route to safety by manipulating time. The game starts easy by changing the path the astronauts have to take but once time traveling portals are introduced the puzzles will have you scratching your head. These portals send an astronaut back in time (and thus it comes out of the portal before it enters it...) so it can work together with its past self. I'm really enjoying these these time travel challenges and maybe you will too!
