Of all the video game cliches, time travel is my favorite. Who cares if it doesn't make any logical sense? It's a conceit that allows developers to craft levels inspired by famous eras from the past and future. This means that every level looks different, the enemies are unique and the story (assuming there is one) can take crazy twists you won't see coming. Perhaps it's my love for time travel that makes me give Time Soldier a pass.

Originally released in 1987 (under the name Battle Field in Japan), Time Soldier is yet another Ikari Warriors-style action game in which players are supposed to swivel their D-pad and shoot enemies. The gimmick here is that our hero travels through time to shoot dinosaurs, Roman soldiers, aliens and more. In all there are five time periods you weave in and out of -- The Primitive Age, The Age of Rome, The World Wars, The Age of War and Future World.

Time travel conceit aside, this Mini feels almost exactly like Ikari III, SAR - Search & Rescue, Guerrilla Wars and countless other SNK releases. You have a choice between manually rotating your aim (by using the left and right shoulder buttons) or the simpler auto aim (where you shoot in the direction you are standing). Sadly, neither aiming option is ideal. No matter what, the game's insane difficulty will ensure that you're dying every few seconds. Thankfully the game comes with unlimited continues. This is yet another SNK Mini that would have benefited from a two-player option.
