King Taskan IV celebrates the end of a civil war. The valiant warrior Hype is given the Sword of Peace for his heroic deeds and his loyalty to the throne. However, a mysterious black knight named Barnak appears and casts a powerful spell on Hype, turning him into a statue and sending him two hundred years into the past. The magician Gogoud brings Hype back to life, and the brave knight has to figure out a way to return to his own time, defeat Barnak, and marry his sweetheart Vibe.

Based on the medieval castle toy series from Playmobil, Hype: The Time Quest is an action game with puzzle-solving and light role-playing elements, similar in style to 3D installment of the Zelda series. Hype primarily fights with close-range weapons, though he can also cast offensive spells in three elemental categories. Hostile areas occupy the largest portion of the game; Hype will explore dungeons, face boss monsters, and will have to hunt for quest items needed to advance the story. Some of the puzzles revolve around time-traveling concept.

A ' Great' little game for all ages

The Good
You can smash barrels and fly dragons. And do magic en fire arrows! There are puzzles ans quests and monsters to defeat. This game has everything a good adventure game should have. Ands it is in simple but very well crafted and effective 3d.

The Bad
I got stuck several times and had to use a walkthrough. A game for kids? Not more or less than many other adventure games. To be honest, there isn' t realy anything wrong with Hype. Its not innovating. Its not the best or greatest game ever. Its just fun. Nothing more nothing less.

The Bottom Line
Hype is an plain and fair adventure game worth playing.
