The purpose of the game couldn't be simpler. The evil DeNomolos want's to change the future and so it is down to both Bill and Ted to jump their way through 50 levels collecting all the lost time fragments and thwart his most totally heinous plan.
What I love about the game is the games simplicity and solid controls. Also each level offers a totally new platform element or puzzle to overcome, making each new level genuinely fresh and new, a joy to discover that drives you onwards through all the levels. Combine that with ten worlds to explore and nicely laid out password system and there is just the right balance of platform challenge, only sometimes dipping over into being overly frustrating. For me it is platform gaming at its purest form and all the better for it.
The two player option is a nice touch, you can't play simultaneously, but by taking it turns, which adds a nice competitive edge to the game as both players tries to out do each other.
Verdict 4 out of 5 stars
