Time Slip (SNES)
Earth date 2129, planet Tiamat is fucked. A rift in space/time is growing near their planet, and will soon wipe out their entire civilization. They have one hope for survival, to conquer their nearest neighbour: Earth. The trouble is that Earth is full of soldier types armed with future guns, so the Tiamatians decide to conquer them in the distant past.
Earth learns of this plan, and puts together a crack team of soldiers go back through time to save the day, but a Tiamatian attack kills them all. All but one...
Anyway, Doc Gilgamesh jumps into the time machine and vanishes.
Those boxes on the right can be destroyed to reveal power ups, but I'm not planning to stick around in range of those guns to see what's in them.
Fortunately it lasts a good while before you lose, and you start off with nine lives, so I wonder... what happens if I start a new game, put something on the fire button and just leave it running?
