A plane has crashed in a remote and unknown plateau of the Himalayas. To their horror, the survivors soon discover that it is populated by dangerous prehistoric creatures and tribes. The player must guide the party of four survivors - the pilot, Jarret, and his three passengers - to safety, avoiding dinosaurs, cannibals and natural dangers, while also ensuring they are sufficiently rested and fed during the long and difficult journey. Where Time Stood Still is an isometric 3D arcade adventure game. The game was produced by Denton Designs as a follow-up to their successful 1986 title The Great Escape.
