To…the future!
“Special Agent” Wilbur
Robinson needs you
for his next mission.
Are you ready?
Travel to past and future worlds to
keep the Robinson Industries’ most
important invention – the Time
Machine – from falling into
the hands of evil. You’ll need your
wits, your courage and plenty
of Robinson gadgets as you do
battle with some of the film’s
most diabolical villains…and some
mysterious new ones, as well.
To get you up to speed, have a
look at this helpful Instructional
Manual. As you work together
with one of your favorite movie
characters, remember:
“Wilbur Robinson never fails!”
To begin your adventures, you can either select New

will take you to the next screen. From here, you will
see a three empty slots menu.
If you chose New Game, your choices will be Start

If you chose to Load a Saved Game, it will give you the
same screen but now “Continue Game” will replace
“Begin Game”.
Use the ≈ button to accept your choice. Use the
Directional buttons on the left of the controller
