Take a step back in time with Renovation's CD spectacular, Time Gal! Chase the infamous Time Bandit from the Prehistoric Era to the future. Persevere against the grunting cavemen and avoid becoming lunch for the tigers at the Great Coliseum. Continue on and even see action in Desert Storm! Don't lose your trusty Time Medallion or you won't catch the Bandit! Prepare for a time warp!
Like Road Avenger, Time Gal is a great action game with the arcade Dragon's Lair type control. The animations are truly top notch as was the challenge which got progressively harder as you moved ahead in time. The soundtrack is CD quality and the game play is very precise. Overall, one of the best CD games out there.
Time Gal is a good follow-up to Road Avenger and Cobra Command. Although the earlier levels are quite easy as you have a fair amount of time to react to the on-screen prompt This reaction time gets shorter and shorter as you move up in the game making it much more challenging. Great backgrounds!
Maybe it's just me, but I don't care for this type of game. The graphics are very good and have cartoon quality. The animation is very impressive and fans of Japanese animation will love it. The game play is nothing more than memorizing which direction to press in the overly short levels. The replay passwords are cool.
Aaah! Time Gal is a Sega CD title! Thanks, Renovation! I like the Mega CD version, and am happy to see the same crisp graphics, solid control, and intriguing adventure is still intact from the translation. I expect to see several games of this format soon, and I hope they all take a lesson in good programming from this.
