After finding some of his father's belongings your character is sent back in time but only for a short while each time. Every time he goes back he has to complete some tasks to help his father out in the past. It gets a little confusing but it's great fun working through the levels and following the story.
If that game enjoyably drained your time then why not look at some of the other great games put out by the developer at the HAG section for Newgrounds. If you're just after quickly playing more popular Adventure games then we'd suggest Survival Island, Reptilian Roundup and the cool 3D Unit 2. Spreading greatness!
