Dead on Time is an "arena shoot-'em-up" where the goal is to survive as long as possible while destroying enemy waves to get bonus time. Full details can be found in the in-game instructions.

This game works on all models of CPC, but you must leave the disk in the drive for 64k models (multi loadings?). You don't need to leave the disk in with more than 64k, but if you do it will save the high-scores to disk.


Jason Kelk reviewed Dead on Time in issue 77 of Retro Gamer, giving it an overall rating of 93% and a 'Retro Gamer Sizzler' award.
