Race Through Time is an online Flash minigame based on Ratchet & Clank Future: A Crack in Time, especially the Great Clock sections with Clank. It is a 2D platformer incorporating many of the time manipulation features from the Ratchet & Clank series.
The game takes place during Ratchet & Clank Future: A Crack in Time.
The player controls Clank in a 2D platformer in a level resembling the Great Clock. There are many elements unique to the Great Clock, but in the background is space. Quantos is shown in the background.
Clank is controlled by using the arrow keys to go left and right and to jump. 'Z' slows down time, while 'C' speeds up time - a new feature to Clank. The player has two bars on the left and right of a clock on the interface; they are used up when slowing down or speeding up time respectively. The goal is to complete the game in the quickest time possible. The player can collect hourglasses that take 10 seconds off the time, and there are 3 hourglasses in total.
When completing the minigame in certain times, you can be awarded either a Bronze, Silver or Gold wallpaper.
