    This game is a sort of Bejeweled with a different kind of gameplay. The fanatic puzzle game players will enjoy this title, but most of the gamers are pretty fast through this game. Not a really bad game, but there are more better and fun puzzle games to get.

    I have to admit that I was really surprised by this game. Something that, on the surface, looks low budget and boring turned out to be packed with quality gameplay and top notch features. For such a cheap price, Time Machine Rogue Pilot is a game not to be underestimated.

    All-in-all, Time Machine: Rogue Pilot does exactly what it sets out to do – provide gamers with a unique match-three experience. The shooting-based gameplay definitely adds a new mechanic to the aging genre, and while I was not all that impressed with the hidden-object minigames, they provided a nice change of pace. Do I think it is better than Puzzle Quest, 7 Wonders, or Bejewled? No. But it is a solid puzzler, and with an MSRP of $6.99, gamers can hardly go wrong.

    Time Machine: Rogue Pilot is a good clone of Bejeweled. If the genre has not yet bored you, the title of Lesta Studio might be for you.

    It never manages to be unique, but does little wrong, and a worthy addiction if you're a fan of the genre.

    Time Machine: Rogue Pilot doesn't stand out between all the other games that try to make profit from the ever so successful Bejeweled. It's an entertaining game for a short period, but will be forgotten soon.

    If you just have to have another Bejeweled variant, then I suppose you might want to give the game a look, but otherwise there are better Bejeweled games out there (e.g. the Puzzle Quest games) that are more worth your while.

    Time Machine: Rogue Pilot is interesting for its plot and its sense of danger and momentum. These things aren't exactly groundbreaking, but for seven dollars, it's decent (and different) enough.

    Put simply, Time Machine Rogue Pilot does too little to differentiate itself which is a fatal shortcoming for an entry into such a saturated puzzle genre. Had it the actual capacity to take us back 20 years, it may have garnered more appeal.
  10. Mixed up and odd, like a platypus in a petting zoo. [Spring 2011, p.116]
