...although I *DO* agree with Anon-Bud that the including a LARGER play area in this (and most to all) of their games would be a very nice addition! STILL mad fun tho! ;)

Man does this bring me back! I think the time travel part is that this used to be good back about ten years ago or so. But now? Forget it! The play area is so small, one can barely see what's going on. How about FULL SCREEN?

I really used to like this game and would play for hours on end, but this is ridiculous! Is there no way to make the playing area larger?

Though it isn't perfect, I find that zooming the screen with CTL-scroll wheel allows me to see it better and get more immersed in it on my MacBook 13". Though the graphics inevitably become fuzzy, it does make this game quite playable on a larger screen, and there is no performance penalty.

Strange that version 3.0.1 is turning up on MacUpdate in December 2010. I've had that same version installed on my Mac for at least 7 years.

Listing problems: Missing icon, wrong screenshot, not free ($20).

But it's a great Pinball Game, worth every penny!

Edified,

Is the program asking for money? My download seems to be free.

No missing icon either.

Ok, I had this game years ago (under OS9 actually). It worked all the way up to my iMac G5. When I switched to a MacBook Pro in 2008 it refused to start. So I deleted it.

I guess the license file remained on my drive somewhere. Which is why my copy is not a demo.

Loony Labyrinth has two play modes: Modern Times, and 2000 BC. To travel to 2000 BC, you must activate the time machine by completing its feature.

You begin the game in Modern Times. As you progess through the time-stream to 2000 BC, you become the brave Prince Theseus. The key to your time travel is the Loony Machine which archealogist Sir Evangel discovered near the Knossos Palace of Crete.

In Modern Times, you'll enjoy three kinds of multiball play: Loony Multi, Labyrinth Multi, and Minotaur Multi. These multiball modes will help you explore the Labyrinth. Then, as you travel back in time, the game's music changes to indicate the approach of your final challenge: Battling the Minotaur, and rescuing its nine young victims.

Loony Labyrinth is rich in sound effects. They will remind you of classic TV game shows and science fiction movies of the 1950s. There's even an "antique" bumper sound from a real vintage pinball machine. Loony Labyrinth's voices tell you about your game's status so you don't have to look up at the score indicators.

Another of Loony Labyrinth's audio features is its two background music tracks. The game starts with "Bump Bumper Bandit," a modern theme. As you travel back to ancient times, the theme changes to "Speak Greek"---the way pinball music might have sounded in 2000 BC!

Loony Labyrinth's brightly-colored rams contrast with its overall antique-style design. We call this the "Neo-Classic" look.

Beginners will enjoy Loony Labyrinth's logical layout, basic rules, and easy-to-launch multiball. Does that mean it's too simple for experts, though? Not at all! The _real_ game starts when multiball starts. You'll find how difficult it is to control three balls---and how fun it is when you can do it.

Loony Labyrinth's multiball modes and Rescue-the-Ball feature have the biggest effects on your score. To get the most out of them, you'll have to learn advanced pinball-handling techniques. There's no better way to learn than playing!
