Time Flies

I've seen many bad games in my time, but this must be one of the worst yet. You must find the 24 hours which a renegade time lord has stolen and hidden on four planets, by flying your AGXX22 fighter through the planetary defences, in order to recover the lost time.

Yes, it's yet another scrolling shoot 'em up, this time with crummy graphics and frustrating gemeplay. The planet is made up of little squares which have a different effect on your ship depending on the pattern drawn on them. Some kill you, some attract you and some repel you. The squares all look so similar that it is very difficult to know what each will do until you hit it, and probably die.

The game is un-interesting, un-addictive and totally un-playable. Don't buy it.
