Here's a strange old arcade game that no matter how
hard I look at it, I always think 'early Darling
Brothers creation', but with a bit more umpf. You'd also
be right in thinking that Battle Through Time is
actually the big brother of many variations on a similar
theme such as Trooper Truck (Rabbit Software), Jeep
Command (Bug-Byte), Silkwork (Sales Curve), and Moon
Buggy (Anirog) - all very similar looking games and
playing almost identical to Battle Through Time.
Ironically, Battle Through Time hasn't stood the test of
time and looks very much outdated compared to many of
the games produced today on the Commodore 64. Still - it
has a place in many C64 enthusiasts' hearts and so let's
look upon this as more of a celebration of the game and
a reminder of days gone by...

HOW WAS IT COMPLETED?:
Brendan said: "No cheats this time - the game has a
handy resume from last level facility - so with that and
plenty of saves I battled my way through the game."
SO WHAT HAPPENS?:
The end of level baddie, a dinosaur, seems to explode
and then our hero's vehicle is transported to another
time/level. The end of message reads: "CONGRATULATIONS...
YOU HAVE REACHED THE END OF YOUR JOURNEY THROUGH TIME.
NOW ENTERING LEVEL 2."
