    TRIVIA
    Licensed to Romstar for US distribution (September 1987).

    This game is known in Japan as "Battle Field".

    The game contains a horrible original bug: when you select 'Japanese language' in the dipswitch settings, the title screen is totally broken.

    Default high-score table (ranking):
    1 90000 M.I.
    2 80800 OK .
    3 70900 A.U.
    4 60600 UCL.
    5 50500 UCC.
    6 40400 SOS.
    7 30300 SUN.
    8 20200 GO .
    9 10100 SSS.
    10 7700 YES.

    UPDATES
    In "Battle Field", the highscore table contains different name entries than Time Soldiers.

    TIPS AND TRICKS
    To accomplish the missions here requires going through time warp machines that appear on all stages. But when you're on a stage where one of your fellow time soldiers who need to be rescued is located, you should avoid entering the time warp machines, otherwise, it'll take longer to complete the missions, as you'll need to access more time machines on other stages until you get back to the specific stage where you need to find the captive. For example, if one of the captive soldiers is located on the Age of Rome stage, remain on that stage until you've reached and defeated the main boss enemy. The captive soldier will then materialize and the game will tell you that 'you destroyed the boss monster and rescued one warrior'. Then, you'll proceed to the next mission to rescue another captive soldier.
