When EF asked me to check out the home version of Time Pilot, I didn't expect much. Since the planes and stuff are small to begin with, I thought the home version would make them all look like specks or boxes. Well, I've got to hand it to Coleco. Time Pilot looks pretty good, but more important, it plays like a bandit.

In den Spielhallen war Time Pilot so umlagert wie so manches andere, bei dem es um Geballer geht. Man konnte sich sogar bequem in den Sessel setzen und „Krieg à la Plüsch“ spielen. Bequem hat man es bei der Homeversion dieses Spielhallen-Erfolges, den Coleco jetzt präsentiert. Interessant dabei, daß Time Pilot wohl die erste BilliqCassette des Hauses ist. Das fördert vielleicht den Umsatz, nicht aber den umstrittenen Spielwert. Wenn ich, obwohl kein extremer Anhänger dieser Art von Spielen, Time Pilot dennoch eine vertretbare Note gebe, so hängt das weniger mit dem Handlungshintergrund zusammen, als mit dem Grad der Herausforderung.

It sounds great, but the visuals leave a lot to be desired. First of the all, the scrolling is awfully choppy, and the screen tends to get messy around the edges. It's also hard to line up your shots with oncoming aircraft, and having to constantly tap the button to shoot is a hassle. Sometimes your gun seems to lock up for no reason - usually at the worst possible moment. Time Pilot was a terrific arcade game, but this translation is only average.
