Big grin Lords Of Time !

Well I finally got my EBAY purchase today, still in shrink wrap !!

But anyway.. I played this years ago, I have a crack of somekind, two disk... but it seemed like a beta or demo or something, because you couldn`t do a great deal, seemed to be missing something, or rather alot of the gameplay!!

I liked the game because it reminded me of Faery Tale Adventure! which I loved to bits..

Only prob is, I have the game here, in the US, and all my amiga equipment is in the UK

Anyone have an details on this game???

1992!! bloody hell, that long ago!

Big grin Well....

The box has a date of 1992 on it.
I`ll take it with me to the UK, and hopefully get it uploaded, this is the original version.

I think there might have been some sort of Faerytale Adventure link...


Lords Of Time (Hollyware 1992)

Amiga Power issue 20, page 91, 53%

Lifeless, lacklustre FRPG that's not so much run-of-the-mill as aimless-kind-of-stroll-of-the-mill. Nothing very much of anything. A vacuum. 2/5*

Wink thats what I thought..

Thats exactly what I was hoping for when I got the game, it looked so Faery Tale.. I even called the company from my Mums phone at some ungodly hour to see.. what the deal was.. ( this was MicroIllusions ) and they said there was no FT2.
I mean we all know there is now.. but I did love Faery Tale adventure..
Can`t wait to boot this version up see if it`s any better than the crack I have in the UK.
Anyone interested in a scan of the cover box art??

MOST definitely, as I have *nothing* on this game, picture-wise. OK, well I have the Cody DBSS (TM) from above, but beyond that, nothing. So any, all cover, back, insides, etc. scans would insure you the presence of Frederic's first born male child (and hey, if you don't need a firstborn, they make great sacrifices!)

Big grin and while I`m at it...

Here`s the links for Lords of time front and back box art!!

my isp won`t allow remote posting

Also anyone remember Faery Tale ADventure being reboxed in a proper box with BOOK 2 stamped on the bottem, as apposed to the flat cardboard container the original came in.. same game and everything, but I got mildly excited when I read BOOK 2 on the front
ok lets give this a try







oh I guess it does allow remote posting or whatever it`s called

good day!

Wonderful! It always gives me a rush to see a coverscan for a game I've never seen the box for. This one gave me butterflies in the stomach, and cold chills.

I don't remember ever seeing that revised FTA box...just the standard Microillusions US box. You wouldn't happen to have this beastie, as well?

If seeing a coverscan gives you a rush could you compare it to taking drugs then? Just cheaper since you can find it on the net?

This particular headrush is a bit different than the drugs one. And it seems drug prices are so high these days, even buying a rare game on ebay is probably cheaper (and better quality!) When I stopped taking drugs, they were replaced by my Amiga stuff and coaching baseball. It turned out to be a worthwhile trade and the only downside of said trade is that aging finally caught up with me. It (aging) never really made much of an appearance when I was getting drunk and stoned every night, but since quitting it is like a rubber band that has stretched real far and then released. Dammit.

@Stainy
Thanks, daddy-o! I'm getting a buzz already!

Lords of Time

One of my favourite games ever, but never been able to find an adf (though I'm pretty new to the emulator thing, so that may be why). Generally I only ever see the other Lords of Time, as opposed to the Hollyware edition.

Would be great to get hold of the adfs - I definitely don't have the computer geekpower to get them from my original Amiga disks.

From what I remember, I always used to get stuck when trying to get access to the Druids temple - there was some funky arrangement of burning herbs required, and it had to be at a certain time. If I ever get the emulated version, thats the first thing I'll try and do! Well, that and re-do the sword courses...and possibly visit the frogs. I seem to remember enchanted frogs, but I could be imagining things.

Nothingness as in bits of the game missing? Or nothingness as in large tracts of green with wolves chasing you?

Nope, thats meant to happen. There is a lot of walking around in that game. My main memory is running away from wolves near rivers and woods, desperately trying to reach the next village (before I beefed up my swordsmanship, at least, when things became a whole lot easier).

You'll come across a few hamlets with banks and inns to learn sword-fighting/magic etc, and there are a couple of 'hidden' places that are sort of funky, but I won't ruin it for you by saying what they are.

EDIT: I got hold of some adfs! VERY happy; been searching for these for years! Now if I can only find my old box, disks and manual in the attic, the nostalgia will be complete.
