Playing a time traveller, "Time Master Tim," the player's objective is to collect dinosaur eggs, and rescue hatchling dinosaurs, while avoiding snakes ("proto-snakes"), gigantic spiders ("proto-spiders"), flying creatures ("proto-pedes"), and the dinosaurs' mother (or "Dino Mom"). Physical contact with any of the first three causes the player, after a period of time, to experience "devolution" into a prehistoric spider (as a result of "contamination"). The player needs to get back to the transport force field ("time warp") before time runs out, in order to avoid this grisly fate (which is equivalent to death; it results in the loss of one of Tim's lives). Returning to the force field in time restores the player's health. The Time Master can also be contaminated through physical contact with a Dino hatchling. When contamination ensues, any of the eggs being carried by Tim are destroyed. For each egg lost, the player gets one minus point. Additionally, coming into direct contact with the juvenile dinosaurs kills them, by infecting them with biological contaminants ("the common Measles") from the 21st century, subtracting ten points from the player's score. While within the transport force field, Tim is safe from all creatures except the Dino Mom.

Famous quotes containing the word description:
“As they are not seen on their way down the streams, it is thought by fishermen that they never return, but waste away and die, clinging to rocks and stumps of trees for an indefinite period; a tragic feature in the scenery of the river bottoms worthy to be remembered with Shakespeares description of the sea-floor.”
—Henry David Thoreau (18171862)
“A sound mind in a sound body, is a short, but full description of a happy state in this World: he that has these two, has little more to wish for; and he that wants either of them, will be little the better for anything else.”
—John Locke (16321704)
“I fancy it must be the quantity of animal food eaten by the English which renders their character insusceptible of civilisation. I suspect it is in their kitchens and not in their churches that their reformation must be worked, and that Missionaries of that description from [France] would avail more than those who should endeavor to tame them by precepts of religion or philosophy.”
—Thomas Jefferson (17431826)
