An alien, disguised as a trash can and currently living on the earth, decides to leave the planet in order to search for its true origin in the depths of the universe.
Waste of Time is a 2D endless runner game playable on the computer. You play as the main character, who is an alien made of different shapes. He can move those shapes the way he wants to, giving him the ability to change his appearance. At the beginning of the game, he looks like a trashcan since he is currently living on planet earth and does not want to get detected by the human race. He has lived there for decades, making him forget where he originated from.
One day, he decides to leave the earth and search for his origin, so he transforms into a bunny-like looking creature and starts to run to the edge of the planet: your task is to lead the main character on his journey through the universe by dodging upcoming obstacles, in order to not let him die and letting him continue his journey.
Not only will you travel from planet to planet, but also encounter stages where you have to float through space, where there will not be any gravity. The planet stage and the space stage will switch in alternate order. While you are playing, a timer counts how long you are already in the game; Once you lost all three health points that were given to you at the beginning, you die and the timer stops counting, saving the time of your game session in a high score list.
