Description

This first licensed game based on the longest-running television sci-fi series (starting in 1963) features the fifth doctor, Peter Davidson, on the cover. The doctor is a humanoid alien who travels through space and time on the TARDIS, which appears on the outside as a blue 1950s British police box. You must create a time key and take it to the centre of the universe to create "the second age of time". This has to be done within a time limit of an hour through four different sections which are variations on popular early video games.
  • The Labyrinth of Death is a Pac-Man clone where you must collect three pieces of the time key while avoiding enemies - the evil weevils of Ourouborous Vl.

  • The Prison is a Frogger-like game where you must get from the bottom to the top of the screen while avoiding various enemies or jump on objects to cross water.

  • The Terrordactyls is similar to the arcade game Phoenix where you are a space ship at bottom of screen shooting at winged enemies above. Shooting a whole wave of enemies will move your ship higher on the screen.

  • The Box of Tantalus is a Battleship clone where you cross the mysterious Box of Tantalus (Minor) in space and must find and destroy the invisible monsters who lurk there.
