Lost in Time

Coktel Vision, 1995

When I first played this game in 1995, I was sure it would be turned into a series. Sadly, no sequel to this marvelous title was ever created, probably because solving the puzzles depends more on common sense than on imagination or resolve.  Even so, this remarkably enjoyable title casts you as Doralice Prunelier, a young woman travelling into time to hunt a killer. In order to return to your own time, you must complete certain tasks, which take you to marvelously rendered re-creations of fascinating historical periods.

Standard graphic adventure game with some digitized backgrounds, while most of the backgrounds are graphically rendered with brief inset full motion movie scenes describing the action taken. First-person perspective view with a unique point and click interface. An adventure well worth playing by all ages.
