The Amulet was disappointing - the plot was very similar to Level 9's Lords of Time with seven time zones to be journeyed through in the search for the fragments of the Time Lord's amulet. That invited comparison, though, to be fair, The Amulet is only a third of the price of the Level 9 program.

Travel across the zones is random so planning can be quite tough. I also found that I was getting bumped off too often and for precious little reason.

In the medieval section, already protected by a shield, I picked up a sword only to be immediately offed by an irate Norman. Although I was armed I was given no chance to fight of flee - that sort of event did not endear me to the game, especially as the same sort of thing kept happening elsewhere.
