Though Time Pilot doesn't have much of a story to speak of, its time travel concept gives it enough of a hook to carry its relatively simple gameplay. Perhaps a bit reminiscent of the 1980 movie The Final Countdown in concept and inspired by Bosconian in gameplay, the game sends the pilot of a high-tech plane through various eras in time to battle the best aircraft each period has to offer, from biplanes to helicopters to jets to eventually UFOs (because you travel all the way to 2001 if you're good enough). Time Pilot was the first game designed by Yoshiki Okamoto, who secretly worked on the game after being told to develop a driving game and went on to create Gyruss before he joined Capcom, where he was a key contributor to the Street Fighter series and was responsible for hits such as 1942, Final Fight and Resident Evil.
