PC and Nintendo Wii owners got to enjoy the antics behind Doc Clock: The Toasted Sandwich of Time, which is basically a platform puzzler with a little unique twist.  But PlayStation 3 owners are in luck since the game is also being released for this console.  With the powers of the PlayStation Move controller, players can now enjoy this game on the big screen in slightly better graphics.

Your main character is Doc Clock who is an inventor of a bunch of crazy machines and devices. One day, he decides to assemble his own toaster rather than just simply going out to buy one.  Somehow, the whole situation becomes a big mess when he accidentally transforms his cat into a cactus. So then he figures that he should travel back in time to prevent this from happening in the first place.  Therefore, he builds a time machine to fulfill this purpose.

However, he doesn’t actually go back in time.  Instead, Doc Clock travels into the future, specifically 2000 years later where robots have taken over and is eliminating all humans.  To make matters worse, the time machine have been split into pieces and are in the robots’ possession. As a result, the objective is to scope out the area and get pack these parts so that you can reassemble your time machine and get the heck out of this terrible time period.

You begin the game by learning how to assemble a vehicle with the basic parts presented before you. Accompanying Doc Clock is a robot backpack named Sack that is actually uncooperative and likes to insult the Doc.  However, it still proves to be useful with its ability to collect items.  Specifically you’ll use it to pick up objects and put them together in whatever fashion you see fit.

There are a variety of environments in this game from forests to ice lands.  In the beginning, you’ll be using the acquired objects to build bridges.  Later on, you’ll be putting together a vehicle.  The further your progress, the more different types of objects you’ll be able to pick up and use to build a better one. For example, there are umbrellas that allow your vehicle to land safely from great heights.  Additionally, there are springs that can allow your vehicle to bounce around.  As a result, your car can end up flying and bouncing around like crazy.

During your travels, you’ll be trying to recover the pieces of your time machine.  But to do so, this means fighting off destructive robots and avoiding numerous hazards, including spikes.  Trial and error is basically how you should approach Doc Clock: The Toasted Sandwich of Time.  You have the Time Slider which allows Doc Clock to travel back in shorter periods of time.  This means that if you, during gameplay, you make a mistake or drop to your death, you can reverse time and try again.

While the idea behind Doc Clock: The Toasted Sandwich of Time is interesting, the game can be quite predictable. The puzzles aren’t that difficult and can actually lose their appeal.  Despite its simplistic design, the graphics manages to pull off a colorful cartoon look that works well.  However, the sound effects and music are forgettable and are just there to fulfill its basic purpose.

While the game only takes around 6 hours to complete, it’s still got loads of fun. The contraptions are wacky enough to put a smile on your face.  While there may be a few quirks that can turn off a few players, the $7.49 value is still a decent price that can’t be ignored.  If you’re looking for that PlayStation Network game that makes use of the Move controller, then Doc Clock: The Toasted Sandwich of Time may be worth your time.
