Description of Future Wars: Adventures in Time
What an unlikely hero! You are a window cleaner. A common, little window cleaner. Yet you discover, more due to your notorious curiosity than by mistake, a time machine in your chiefs back office. Strange? Absolutely. Your adventure in the past and the future is about to begin. The quest? Four words: Evil aliens. Beautiful girl. Any questions?
Future Wars, Delphine Software's debut and first attempt at an adventure game, is a fun adventure controlled via a home-made point-and-click interface. A right click brings up the verb menu. After choosing one of the six commands, you point the mouse over the desired target and execute with a left click -- straight and simple.
Small objects are depicted by enlarged drawings -- once you found them. Pixel hunting is a very frequent sport in Future Wars, making the game extremely frustrating as you must move the mouse slowly across the screen, looking for 1x1-pixel objects you may have missed. Lazy players are punished with puzzle dead-ends. Fortunately, the plot is inventive enough to keep the players glued to the screen and forgive the game's quirks.
Overall, a worthy first release that bodes well for the company that would later be famous for excellent action/adventure games.

So this game works flawlessly in DosBox...HOWEVER I am having a hard time getting the Mac to simulate simultaneous Right-Left mouse clicks to save or load a game.

Excellent ! Un des premiers point 'n click français.
L'ergonomie date un peu, mais quel jeu !
En France, ce jeu est plus connu sous le nom "Les Voyageurs du Temps"...
