Despite becoming Guinness World Record holders, retro publisher Hamster isn’t resting on its laurels, with this week’s Arcade Archives range receiving the weird and obscure Time Tunnel, now available to purchase on PS4 and Nintendo Switch.
Released by Taito in 1982, Time Tunnel is a reaction-based maze game with a strange sci-fi premise. Players are charged with managing a commuter train’s journey from Earth to outer space, collecting passengers, refueling, changing tracks, and meeting connecting carriages, all while avoiding alien invaders and other hazards. Endless play alternates between present-day and “futuristic” stages.
Time Tunnel is available to download now on PS4 is Japan and Nintendo Switch worldwide, priced at around $8.
