Beyond Time is a first-person graphic adventure that puts you in the role of an archeologist in search of famous artifacts that have been stolen from museums and holding places.
Michelangelo's Pieta from the Vatican, the Seti I statue from Cairo, the Mona Lisa from the Louvre—each one is missing. They have been stolen from safes and cases, sometimes vanishing before people's eyes. You'll visit exotic and famous locations such as the Temple of Osirus, the Tibetan Palace, and the ruins of Atlantis during your search to recover lost treasures.
Now, you are being sent to the scene of a recent archeological dig where one of these artifacts turns up, buried in the sand. You must use wits, memory, and exploration to solve many puzzles and mysteries you may come upon. An inventory system allows you to store items you find that can be used in various locales you eventually visit in the game. For instance, you may find a key in France that has to be used in an Egyptian temple or a hieroglyphic might help solve a puzzle later on in the game.
Beyond Time features more than two thousand 3D scenes, six different civilizations to which to time travel, fifty puzzles with varying degrees of difficulty, multiple display options, and over eighty minutes of cinematically designed scenes that include clues and enhance the story.
Be careful and have your wits about you, as someone or something is playing with an object that should not be tampered with—time! ~ Glenn Wigmore, All Game Guide
