Arcade Classic: Time Pilot

Xbox Live members in all regions can now download the arcade classic ’Time Pilot’ from the Xbox Live Arcade. You can download a free demo of the game, or purchase the full game for 400 points. Time Pilot is a 1982 arcade game by Konami and distributed in the US by Centuri, designed by Yoshiki Okamoto. It is a flying themed game debuting in the Golden Age of Arcade Games. Overview The player assumes the role of a pilot of a futuristic fighter jet, trying to rescue fellow pilots trapped in different time eras. The player must fight off hordes of enemy craft and defeat the mother ship (or "boss") present in every level. The background moves in the opposite direction to the player’s plane, rather than the other way around; the player’s plane always remains in the center. Description This game has the player travel through five time periods, rescuing stranded fellow pilots. The player must fight off droves of enemy craft while picking up parachuting friendly pilots. Once 56 enemy craft are defeated, the player must defeat the mothership for the time period. Once she is destroyed, any remaining enemy craft are also eliminated and the player progresses to the next level. All the levels have a blue sky and clouds as the background except the last level, which has space and asteroids instead. The specific eras visited, the common enemies and the motherships are: 1910: biplanes and a blimp 1940: WWII monoplanes and a B-25 1970: helicopters and a large, blue, CH-47 1982 (Konami version)/1983 (Centuri version): jets and a B-52 2001: UFOs The mothership is destroyed with seven direct hits. Once all the eras have been visited, the levels start over again but are harder and faster. This game was one of the more successful games of the era. It spawned one sequel in 1984, Time Pilot ’84. Though a respectable game, it did not do nearly as well as the original.
