If you could save multiple slots, then the time-limit would be pointless because you could just reload anytime a sidetrack proved pointless.

PS- I have my hands on my new used copy at this moment. I'm happy.
The time limit was my primary frustration with the game. It's a hell of a lot of fun because of all the freedom you have, sticking a time limit on it is the anti-funs.
