Time Pilot - October 19, '99 by Bifordus Maximus
Game:Time PilotCompany:Konami
Type:ShooterPlayers:1/2

Time Pilot, the name says it all. Without knowing the story (there isnít one) you already know what itís about. As with a majority of the games made in the early 80ís it was all about gameplay. And this game being made by Konami was no exception. The game was simple, one joystick, one button, shoot anything that flies. You start the game in the year 1910 trying to shoot down biplanes (wha-?) with your advanced fighter(Assume it is from the future). At the end of every board you have to shoot down the boss which takes about 10 shots. Then you go to the next board. In the next time era until finally getting to the future shooting down flying saucers. The game then starts over from 1910 again but this time a lot more harder. And whatís with that guy in the parachute? Heís in every stage except the last one. I donít se how flying into someone would rescue them but this was 1982. Who cares! Like I said itís all about the gameplay. The ease of control and shooting (with a keyboard) is outstanding. In the later stages dodging bullets gets insanely difficult. The graphics by todays standards would be considered horrible, But after playing this game you will realize that wont matter. The sound effects are pretty good. It satisfies the hunger of hearing something explode and knowing when you get a free guy (1up). Trying to beat that High score will keep you coming back. MAME emulates this game perfectly and you donít need a powerful PC to play it. Everyone should have this game.
