TimePilot Gameplay.

Players assume the role of a pilot of a futuristic fighter jet trying to rescue fellow pilots trapped in different time eras.
In each level, players battle enemy aircraft and then a stronger aircraft. Players’ fighter jet is in the center of the screen at all times. Players eventually battle a mothership of the time period they are in; once the mothership is defeated, they move onto the next time period. Parachuting pilots will occasionally appear and award players points if collected.
