You are watching TV at home doing nothing. As you are flipping through the channels, you saw something that you did not expect to see. Suddenly, you were chosen to travel through time. The time machine needs you to gather artifacts from different eras, otherwise, it will vanish forever. The artifacts were all in the places where a significant event or catastrophe happened. Can you solve the problems and retrieve all the artifacts in time?


The graphics of the game were fantastic. There wasn't a video to tell you stories that many online games have. Instead, I had to read the stories along with the images. The pictures matched the theme and story well. I was never bored because I traveled to unique places in different eras within the game. I was immersed in the game deeply with the exciting stories and engaging images of each scene.


The game was entirely playable online, no printing was necessary. Once you purchase the game, you will receive the code to access it on the website. To play with your friends or family remotely, you must use a tool like Zoom to share the screen.

The structure of the game was easy to understand. It was linear. I read a story about a particular time and entered a puzzle section of the scene. Once I solved the puzzles in the section, I moved on to a new set of scenes and puzzles in the next time zone. Most of the puzzles were classic ones that you may see in escape rooms or puzzle books, such as a cryptogram and various logic puzzles. I loved that some of them had a little twist. Some of the puzzles were challenging. All the puzzles fit well with the theme and the stories of the eras. I liked the hint system. The icons of step-by-step hints appeared on the screen as time passed. I was able to check the answers if I needed to. A minor thing, one of the puzzles was a little bit confusing to have the correct answer because of how it was presented. I felt the instruction was not specific enough for me. I had to try entering answers differently a few times to get the right one. Overall, I enjoyed that the game had many types of fun classic puzzles and stories of time travel with charming images from different historical moments.

“The Time Collector” was a fun online puzzle game to collect artifacts from different eras by traveling through time. I had fun visiting various scenes from different eras, such as the time of the dinosaur or the moment of the Titanic sinking. I enjoyed solving different types of classic puzzles. The game is not an escape room, but it is a perfect puzzle game for a fun game night for friends and family or for solo players who enjoy stories and traditional puzzles. Why not try an exciting adventure through time?
