Time Paradox from German developer Flair might have gone down the memory hole for good reasons. It’s a fantasy adventure that can be loosely compared to King’s Quest VII or the Kyrandia series as far as the fairytale setting. The plot, which should be central to any adventure, is nonsensical and poorly translated from its native German. Agent Kay gets sent back in time to stop the evil Morgana Le Fay, traveling all the way back to the ‘time of dinosaurs and cavemen’. It’s as lame as it sounds.
Time Paradox was under the works for a full six years, so the graphics look and feel more like early rather than mid 90s quality. Visually the game isn’t that bad – the graphics in fact might just be the best part of the game. The puzzles are more than a little dubious, however. You get a healthy mix of item puzzles (combine them with the environment or between themselves) and also several dialogue trees to navigate with the many characters. Both of them stretch the imagination at times and become frustrating, an issue worsened by your charcter’s slooow walking speed and frequent backtracking.
