The platforming is
really just a bother (especially since Mario cannot die) and trying to
decipher and place the artifacts in the correct time period is a big
trial-and-error time waster. This is due to some levels being very
particular about where an item is placed, but also the circumstance
of how it can be. The frustration of having to regain an artifact again
and go through the entire process is only cushioned a bit by a chance
to spot famous historical characters with Mario-esque features, such
as Shakespeare and Albert Einstein.
Despite trying to mix an educational Mario game with side-scrolling elements, Mario’s Time Machine actually ends up worse than Mario is Missing. Everyone involved in this atrocity should have known better.
