* NintendoHard: See the time limit above, and add in you're pretty much a OneHitWonder, the abundance of enemies, the fact you start each level with ''only your bare hands'' to defend against said enemies, the GuideDangIt nature of the time orbs you need to collect...

In the year 2999, Earth is under siege by aliens from the planet Drakkon. The player controls the titular Time Lord, humanity's last hope against the Drakkon Lord, who must use a Time Machine to travel back in time to four different eras, where adapted Drakkon warriors are wreaking havoc in an effort to change the course of human development and render them more easily conquered in the present day. Using humanity's only remaining time machine, the Time Lord must travel to [[TheMiddleAges Medieval England 1250 AD]], [[TheWildWest Western U.S.A. 1860 AD]], [[GoldenAgeOfPiracy the Caribbean 1650 AD]], and [[WorldWarII France 1943 AD]] and defeat the Drakkons. However, he can only advance to each new zone by capturing power sources from the Drakkon forces, and if he fails to return to Earth by January 1, 3000... it's all over.

* AWinnerIsYou: Considering just how [[NintendoHard damn hard]] this game is, the ending paragraph is extremely unsatisfying.
--> You have saved the Earth and driven the evil aliens from our planet. We must guard against their return. For the present we go forth in peace and tranquility.



* ChoiceOfTwoWeapons: In each of the time zones, barring the middle ages, you can obtain two period appropriate weapons. Some of these overlap into several time periods. For example, the sword appears in the middle ages and the pirate ship and the revolver can be obtained in TheWildWest and WorldWar2.

Added DiffLines:

* FlawedPrototype: The human time machine. While the Drakkons have perfected time travel and are using it to defeat humanity by changing its history, the time machine the player uses runs on SanDimasTime and is highly unstable. Taking too long to complete your mission will cause the machine to explode.


* ChoiceOfTwoWeapons: In each of the time zones, barring the middle ages, you can obtain two period appropriate weapons. Some of these overlap into several time periods. For example, the sword appears in the middle ages and the pirate ship and the revolver can be obtained in TheOldWest and WorldWar2.

Added DiffLines:

* RevolversAreJustBetter: In the WildWest time zone, the player can collect a revolver and a shotgun. The revolver is a much more useful weapon for the boss fight, since while firing, you're [[GoodBadBugs invulnerable to his bullets]]. You have to spam the b button to a painful level to achieve this, though.

Added DiffLines:

* MegaCorp: Apparently, Milton Bradley have branched out from board games into ''time travel''.
