Description: “Time on your hands” is a Virtual Reality experience in which you live from within one of the best Spanish TV series, “the Ministry of Time”. In this experience, you will be able to get into the Ministry’s Headquarters and meet forehand some of the characters of the series. In the game, you are applying to enrol the Ministry and therefore you will have to sit an exam and pass an interactive test which will tell if you are prepared enough to become a member of a ministry’s patrol. Over 10 minutes, you will stroll along several rooms of the ministry gazing around. After crossing the main secret gate, you will encounter the Cloister where you will be met by one the chiefs of the Ministry. Ernesto Jimenez. He will lead you to the office where Angustias, the secretary is receiving the candidates.
The exam will take place at the Director’s office, who will overlook the applicants, you included. You will have to answer several questions related to Spanish history and the plot of the series. If you pass the exam, the Ministry’s ID will be given to you in order to access the downstairs area. After going down the famous snail staircase, you will find corridors inhabited by members of the ministry from different Eephocas-from Cavemen to Roman soldiers or medieval monks. Only at the end of your journey, you will find the Doors of the Time.
Review: This is a short interactive experience based on the Spanish television series ‘El ministerio del tiempo’ (translated: The Ministry of Time). While there isn’t much to this experience it is worth playing as it looks OK. While I am sure some would have prefered a full game for a freebie it is still worth a look even if you don’t know of the TV show. But some people will just see it as little more than a promo for the TV show and to be honest, that is just about all it is, just a very good one that is fun to play.
