Sometimes in life, the events that surround us not only affect us in the here and now, but occasionally, they can affect the lives of generations to come. That's the idea behind the light family-friendly RPG (role-playing game), Destiny Connect: Tick-Tock Travelers. It's an interesting idea, though the plot can get a little confusing sometimes with all the game's back and forth time shenanigans. It doesn't help that the story unfolds without the benefit of any voiceovers, meaning that to follow what's happening requires a lot of reading. It slows the pace of the game considerably, but skipping out on any of the dialogue is done at your own risk, as some offhand comment made earlier is often a key to making some sense of later events.

Combat in Destiny Connect isn't difficult to get the hang of, but it can require some sudden shifts in strategy. The player's party is made up of two human characters and the robot, Isaac. While the other party members can fall in battle, losing Isaac is an instant "Game Over," making protecting him a key component of combat. This can get particularly difficult when the opposing party decides to gang up on your mechanical teammate. Isaac can shift roles with his Transformation skill to help out, but unless you've got some healing skills or items handy, he can easily get overwhelmed if you're not paying attention. That said, keeping an eye on the turn order of characters and planning a couple of moves in advance is usually enough to come out on top. While Destiny Connect: Tick-Tock Travelers requires a good bit of patience and … well, time … it's an entertaining and imaginative adventure that should appeal to both kids and kids at heart.
