My coworker and fellow Mochi has been watching a considerable amount of the Doctor Who reboot and has encouraged me to start watching the show. While I’m a fan of anything that’s even remotely science fiction and kitschy, I’m surprised I’ve never seriously sat down and watched the show before. Because of that, I’ve decided to see if I can find some time travel games out there for you to enjoy throughout your day. By the way, I drew that little police box wearing the scarf.
Dr. Sweetvalley and the Broken Time Machine – This game probably is loosely related to time travel, but it has the name in the title and it’s an excellent puzzle game that’s simliar to Excit, but in a “three-dimensional” space. So now you can give your brain a workout as you listen to quirky music and watch pixel graphics fly around on your screen.
Panda’s Bigger Adventure – I’m a big fan of multiple things attached to this game: Rob Donkin, RobotJAM and point-and-click adventure games that take me back to my childhood and Scumm/AGS games. Talk about time travel, right? In any case, this is another excellent sequel (you get a nice recap during the introduction sequence) to the other Panda games where this time travelling “portaloo” has gotten you stuck on a deserted island.
Minima Time – This is an interesting platformer game that takes the idea of time and uses it to base your score upon. The longer you stay alive, the better your score. The thing is that you only have 10 seconds to live. Luckily you are provided time clocks which allow you to slow down time around you or to stop time completely. With a pretty large world to explore and a real sense of urgency, this one’s great for a few goes.
Spotfinder: The Doctors – And since we’re on the subject of our lovely Doctor, here is a spot the difference game featuring fanart of the many different Doctors that have dotted the timeline in the series. Outside of theme, the only real time based game mechanic is that you’re racing against the clock. Featuring the artwork of Kevin Bolk!blog comments powered by Disqus
