Erreicht man schließlich das Jahr 1986, trifft man auf (damals) futuristisches Kriegsgerät in Form von Düsenjets und muss sich diesen erwehren. Schafft man es auch diesen Gegnern zu trotzen und den nächsten Level zu erreichen beginnt das Spiel von vorne bei einem gesteigerten Schwierigkeitsgrad. Man bemerkt schon, dass sich hinter Time Pilot ein eher anspruchsloses Shoot‘em Up verbirgt. Das spiegelt sich ebenfalls in der Technik wider: Solide Kost auf dem Colecovision, aber für Staunen wird es bei Niemandem sorgen.

I of all people know that Coleco’s Time Pilot is hardly the only 2600 port forced to scrap a few things from the arcade original. The major difference is that I really, really like Time Pilot and this version just doesn’t measure up. Maybe the 1982 coin-op just wasn’t a fit for the 1977 technology. What I do know, though, is that Atari was able to develop scaled-down versions of Ms. Pac-Man and Dig Dug that were still perfectly enjoyable. At best, Time Pilot just barely matches the standard of adequate.

Still, the graphics aren't half bad (especially the helicopters in the 1970 stage), and the game is challenging enough. Fans of the arcade game will be understandably disappointed, but those who take the game for what it might enjoy it.
