1994: Ten Years After is a 2D fixed screen platform game in the tradition of Nintendo's Donkey Kong. Your objective on each level is to capture a key, then make your way to a keyhole that allows advancement to the next level. The journey, however, is filled with a variety of traps that require thought, precision movement and proper timing to overcome.
You can move your (unnamed) character left or right and jump over holes and obstacles. The traps include monsters, floating platforms, birds that carry your character back to the beginning, long falls and other dangers. You begin the game with three lives and lose one each time your character is caught in a trap or touched by a monster.
Another way to lose a life occurs when the level timer counts down to zero before you capture the key and reach the keyhole to complete the level. Each time your character loses a life, you're returned to the starting point to try the level again, assuming you have any extra lives remaining.
1994: Ten Years After offers options of setting the game speed to slow or fast and either playing a regular game or practicing a level. While regular gameplay gives you three lives at the start, the practice mode allows unlimited play on any level desired. ~ Kyle Knight, All Game Guide
