This has to be one of the more boring of the time travel games I have played. This is nothing like the movie, Timecop, but we are working for an agency that deals in time crime. We weave in and out of time in various cities around the world, but we never leave that place we are bound to, so 2012 Paris becomes 1970 Paris, but we are still looking for stupid little things in the same office, or shoreline, or restaurant, or pile of ruins.

The game is far too easy with there being no penalty for misclicking. I got to the point where I was just clicking on every object in the puzzle, and finding the objects in the small list by chance. Once you found all the items on the list in the present and the past, the game would move you to another puzzle, and there might be a break in all this tedium with a minigame here or there. There are many time-travel casual games out there, but Time Chronicles: The Missing Mona Lisa is one that really needed to be polished up a bit. Did I mention that our antagonist is a creepy, over-dressed lizardman know as Time Chameleon? Yeah… right… If you want to give this a try, you might want to wish for time-traveling abilities to get back the hour you lost with the demo.
