Old adventure pc game?

Post by game_killer »

Hey guys this forum is really amazing, good job

anyway, i was wondering if you guys knew about a game that involved a time machine that took this guy into the past, into the Jurassic era then the Egypt and the middle ages and so on. I remember each level had a boss that you had to kill, for example in the medieval level you had to kill a dragon with a water gun, and in the Jurassic level you would find these eggs that had a question in them, and by each correct answer a bit of a golden diamond would be reviled lol. at the end of each level you would get a golden diamond that you put in the time machine. Id be more than pleased if you guys answered me :)

Sounds vaguely like some Chrono Trigger knockoff. Not AE, though, AE didn't have time travel.

heres some more info that might help, it was cartoonish, it wasnt a puzzle game.
I remember in the egypt level you had to find a gun that shot cloth, and you had to shoot a mummy with it to wrap it up. but yea definitely at the end of each level there was a big golden diamond that you would get for defeating the bosses.
Thanks ! :D

nope, if you have read the description i wrote at the beginning i mentioned that its a good old game that uses arrow keys and space to jump.
but yes i do believe that it was on DOS.
One more thing that might help you guys figure out what game im talking about.
in one of the levels, you had to acquire a mask that would fool a guy who was standing behind the door and checked people through the peeping hole in a door.
i also remember that at the beginning, the menu had a swirling orange and red background

I have played Time Commando. The one I'm looking for is older with 2D graphics maybe early 1990's.
