- TRIVIA -


Time Killers was removed from many arcades for being just a little too gory.


This game had a unique button layout that no other games uses. Even its sequel, "Blood Storm", doesn't use it, but instead uses the "Mortal Kombat" five button X pattern. The unique part is those five buttons are laid out in a pattern that resembles the human anatomy on the Time Killer control panel. There are many moves that requires hitting all five buttons at the same time, which is easy to do with the above layout (use your entire hand to press all five buttons simultaneously).
