Loony Labyrinth has two play modes: Modern Times, and 2000 BC. To travel to 2000 BC, you must activate the time machine by completing its feature.
Another of Loony Labyrinth's audio features is its two background music tracks. The game starts with "Bump Bumper Bandit," a modern theme. As you travel back to ancient times, the theme changes to "Speak Greek"---the way pinball music might have sounded in 2000 BC!
|-In 1893, while visiting a London antique shup, the archeologist Sir Evangel, found a strange carved stone called "Galopetra" (in Greek, galo=milk; petra=stone). On its face was a strange hieroglyph and the symbol of a maze. On the reverse was a picture of the Minotaur---a creature with a human body and a bull's head.|
He was so fascinated with the mysterious stone, he traveled to the Cretian island where the stone was found. There he found and excavated a huge stone maze, the legendary Labyrinth of Knossos. Deep inside the Labyrinth, he discovered a secret that no one could imagine: A hidden mechanism which enabled a journey to the distant past.
In 2000 BC, the Minos civilization was at its peak, with technology far beyond ours. The Minos people traveled through time and space with their time machines. Then, seeking to make powerful weapons, they began experimenting with bio-technology, and created a fearful monster called the Minotaur.
The bio-weapon Minotaur was furious and uncontrollable, King Minos of Crete ordered Daedalus to build a huge labyrinth on Knossos Hill. There the Minotaur would be contained. To keep it appeased, each year nine young people were sacrificed to it.
When Sir Evangel found the hidden time-travel mechanism, he named it the Loony Machine. He studied it and tried to operate it, but never succeeded. The machine had waited for thousands of years for Theseus, the warrior destined to defeat the Minotaur. When Theseus appeared, the Loony Machine would recognize him and take him back to 2000 BC to save the Minos people.
You now see before you the Galopetra Stone, and a note from Sir Evangel about the Loony Machine.
"Explore the Labyrinth and find the other five Galopetra Stones. Install them in the Loony Machine's pedestal. Then, if you are indeed the destined warrior Theseus, the Machine will take you to Minos, an incredible world of thousands of years ago. Your mission there will be to defeat the Minotaur and save the nine young people from sacrifice. If you are successful, Ariadne will show you how to return to the present."
