"'Barbie horse adventure' is a fair description. Except you can kill the horses. And other people. And arrest people and beat them while they are in jail. And blow them up with dynamite."

Age of Time is a free, multiplayer, persistent-world fantasy action-adventure game by Eric "Badspot" Hartman, the creator of Blockland. It is known mainly for having only female player models, and for having not been updated in over a decade. You can play it here.

Do not confuse this AOT with Attack on Titan or Airports of Thailand

Age of Time contains examples of:

  • Action Girl: All player characters, by nature of the game.
  • Awesome, but Impractical
    • You can make swords out of anything from rust, to gold, to plutonium. However, no matter what materials you use, all swords are identical gameplay-wise.
    • Launching yourself using dynamite and a shield. There aren't many places you can launch yourself to with dynamite that you can't easily enough get to using the hook. You can't hardly use it for fast travel without suffering fatal fall damage on the other side, either. Even when it does prove useful, dynamite is difficult to come by in large quantities, requiring a lot of roaming the wilderness killing Dynamite Orcs.

  • Barbie Doll Anatomy: Player characters lack genitalia. Nipples, however, are fully modeled, and even visibly clip through some clothing items.
  • Can't Get Away with Nuthin': No matter where you are, committing a crime will give you demerits. Even if no other players are on, you're in an empty cave in the wilderness, and you flash your boobs at the wall, you'll be charged with public nudity.
  • Changing Clothes Is a Free Action: Changing your clothes takes only as long as it does for you to open your inventory and use the clothing items you want to wear (or take off). Clothes-changing becomes instant if you have the clothing in question bound to your quick slots.
  • Elemental Crafting: Rust, copper, zinc, lead, brass, iron, steel, gold, and plutonium can all be used to make swords, shields, and crossbows. All swords are the same, but shields have different effects depending on what they're made of (gold shields, for instance, create gold coins when struck), and crossbows shoot faster and farther the better the material used.

  • Fireballs: One of the spells you can cast
  • First Town: Port Town, which is also a Port Town.
  • Healing Potion: They come in two sizes and can be found as rare drops in dungeons or from Sea Monsters, or they can be purchased at Port Town, Starboard Town, or the Tavern.
  • Item Crafting: As long as you have the materials, the blacksmith in Port Town will make fabric, clothing, metal, and weapons for you. However, if it's metal or weapons you want, you must also pay a fee.
  • Inexplicable Treasure Chests: Found in the wilderness, and are extremely rare. They used to contain gold, but players almost immediately started using tracking scripts to find them, so Badspot changed them to contain lit dynamite.
  • Massively Multiplayer Online Role-Playing Game: Probably the one well-defined genre that this game is closest to. Badspot, however, makes it clear that it is not, as there is no leveling and there can only be 30 players at once on the game's only server.
  • Money Spider: All monsters drop something with killed, and unless it's a Sea Monster, Fire Orc, Dynamite Orc, or an Imp, that something will be gold.
  • Only Six Faces: All player characters and human NPCs have only two faces between them.
  • Orphaned Series: The game is still incomplete and has not been updated in over eight years.
  • Pinball Projectile: The ball spell.
  • Port Town: There's Port Town and Starboard Town.
  • Real Time: The amount of time you spend in jail is in real time.
    • A subversion: The day and night cycle (which has no real effect on gameplay) takes about half an hour to complete rather than 24 real hours.
  • Rocket Jump: Possible using dynamite and a shield to block the damage of the blast. Varying amounts of dynamite can even be used to control the force of the launch.
  • Soft Water: Though you still have to watch out for the ground underneath if you're falling fast enough or it's not deep enough. And if it's deep enough to break your fall, it will also probably spawn Sea Monsters...
  • Somewhere, an Equestrian Is Crying: Horses are Automaton Horses, are completely obedient, do not react to being attacked, can run up, down, and along steep mountains, and are spawned from metal boxes called Insta-Horses. The latter probably falls under Rule of Funny.
  • Stuff Blowing Up: The only way to get wood from trees is by using dynamite, for some reason.
  • Virtual Paper Doll: You can purchase or craft new clothes for your character to wear. You can also get naked, but this counts as a crime in-game
  • We Buy Anything: Subverted. You can put anything up for sale in the shops in Port or Starboard Town, and for any price...there's just no guarantee that anyone else will buy it.


How well does it match the trope?
