Time Traveler[2][3] is a fantasy text adventure developed by Krell Software Corp. The game was released on the 16K, Level II TRS-80.

Plot[edit]

The object of the game is for a player to go back in time and obtain 14 rings, each hidden in a different era and possessing a different special power that can help the player in some way. The player then returns with them to the time machine laboratory.[4]

Reception[edit]

The game was reviewed in The Dragon #44 by Mark Herro. Herro said that his opinion of the game kept changing as he played it; he intended to evaluate the game negatively at first, but the more he played the more he found himself liking it despite its problems. As he was playing an early pre-production advance copy, he found a number of little bugs in the program. Krell Software told him they had taken care of the problems in later versions.[4]
