|In the early 1930's, Tess Conway, obsessed with ancient Egypt, and her
guests vanished without trace... right in the middle of a wild party on
the Conway island estate. Sixty years after this events it's your
mission to investigate the strange events that took place in those days.
Though it's graphically a typical Doom clone, there are some differences:
the game has one huge level instead of many smaller ones which allows you
to return to old places at any time, i.e. to pick up health packs or
ammunition. Also the spirits of Tess and her guests appear occasionally
and bring the story of that evening to light helping you to find keys,
to unlock doorways, to locate secret passages and to solve puzzles.
You must explore the huge estate and its hundred
rooms while acquiring needed objects and dispatching sixteen different
types of enemies including ducks, hunters, flying heads, evil cooks,
crazy clowns, ugly rats, smoking skeletons, and many others. You can
check your position at any time by using a map. This is a fun game
for those who like haunted mansions. In 2012, a fan-made remake using Adobe Flash CS3 engine was released. It adds sounds from Fallout 2 & Silent Hill 2. On July 23, 2015, ZOOM Platform announced the release of an updated version of Killing Time exclusively for their store. The update work was done by Jordan Freeman Group and published by ZOOM Platform and Prism Entertainment. It made the game compatible with new OS and fixed some sprites to look similar to those FMV enemies in the 3do version but it still uses the maps from the PC version instead of the 3DO ones.
