Microdeal's chronological adventure casts the player in the role of a time traveller, seeking out fame and fortune in real and mythical historical periods.

This is a great game with above-average Amiga graphics and good sound effects. Time Bandits has everything an arcade gamer demands in a superior game - and more!

Time Bandit is a tough and challenging game, but offers the player great rewards if he's willing to persevere. Look it up if you think you can take the pace.

The wee blond feller you control is quite cute and moves pretty smoothly, but overall the graphics are not exactly astounding. However, the game is played for its action and addictiveness, so don't let that put you off.

Power Play
Time Bandits ist auf dem ST heute noch eine Augenweide: gutes Scrolling, Action, Abwechslung und Spielwitz, soweit der Joystick reicht. Knapp zwei Jahre hat man sich für die Amiga-Umsetzung Zeit gelassen. Das Resultat ist eine 1:1-Kopie der ST-Version und damit leider nicht ganz befriedigend. Ein paar Verbesserungen wären keine schlechte Sache gewesen: Auf dem Amiga hätte man superweiches Scrolling, mehr Farben und tollen Sound realisieren können, doch das war dem Programmierer anscheinend zu viel Arbeit. Time Bandit ist trotzdem empfehlenswert, denn es macht vor allem zu zweit immer noch einen Heidenspaß. Wer bei anderen Amiga-Ballereien schon das Gähnen kriegt, sollte dieses spritzige Action-Spiel mal ausprobieren.

Alles in allem kann ich sagen, daß TIME BANDITS für mich wirklich ein Meilenstein in der Softwaregeschichte ist. Hier findet man harte Action mit logischen. Rätseln in einen fordernden Labyrinth-Rahmen gepackt. Dieses Game setzt Maßstäbe und zeigt, was man aus einer Spielidee machen kann. Großartig! (na ja, lediglich der Sound ist ein bißchen zu kurz gekommen,. aber wozu gibt‘s denn Plattenspieler?)

When this game was first released for the ST – and you must remember that it was one of the first games available for that machine – it seemed to have everything a games devotee could have dreamed for. Excellent graphics, good sound effects, an enormous playing area, and a resemblance to Gauntlet, the game of the time.
