Game Details

Editorial Reviews

Time and Magik
In the next room is the grandfather clock and once you have learnt to use it, you will be able to travel to nine different time zones. These include Roman times, a futuristic scenario with walkways, a prehistoric era where you will meet various dinosaurs and a frozen wasteland. [...] Lords of Time looks fascinating; I am very keen on games where you move from one time zone to another so I will definitely return to that.
