Overall, Timerace is a pleasant puzzle diversion, with nice graphics, challenging and a bit innovative gameplay, and diverse background graphics that tell the story of the evolution of mankind (similar to Tetris Classic). It's a mix of Tangram and Tetris that should please all puzzle fans. Recommended, but make sure you use slowdown utility before starting the game, otherwise you'll wonder why you never seem to have enough time to complete a level :)
Bad news everybody!Okay so this\'ll be short, but in all likelihood, I am going to be shutting this page down. It\'s expensive (very), and I do not think it\'s needed anymore given the success of GOG.com, Abandonia, and a few others. I simply don\'thave the time to keep it up and running, nor can do I have the time to make it the kickass community that I think it needs to be. I tried to ping abandonia about taking it over, but I never got a response. if anyone else has any alternative ideas, drop me a line at admin at hotud.org and we can figure something out.

A fun variant of classic Chinese boardgame Tangram, Loriciel's Timerace is more similar to QQP's later underdog Origamo, but with simpler gameplay and tougher time limit. In each level, you are given triangles of different colors, four of which can form a square. Your goal is to rotate triangles and put them next to other triangles of the same color to make them disappear. If you inadvertently fit 4 triangles of *diferent* colors into a square, that square not only disappear, but will also take a piece of playing board with it, leaving you with less room on the board. The goal is to get rid of all the triangles before the walking cavemen (or their descendants in later levels) reach the exit to the right.
