In Treasure Adventure Game, there are numerous locations that are only accessible at certain times of the day. I always seem to be at the wrong end of the day when I'm ready for these events, and often just spend the remainder of the game day twiddling my thumbs and generally being bored.

I find this unacceptable.

Is there anyway I can sleep, sit on a bench, or generally move forward through time in a quicker manner?

Once you get the Magic Bottle, you can fast-forward time by going to an alternate dimension.

You may have noticed these black holes all over the place. (I was initially confused about their function, too.)

You can scoop these up with your bottle, then release them to open a portal to said mysterious dimension. It serves 2 purposes:

  1. Fast travel. Everything is tiny compared to you, and you can walk across the ocean, so getting around is a breeze. When standing on a tiny island, you can press up to immediately warp to the real deal.

  2. Time travel! Time goes a lot faster in this dimension, as evidenced by the moon and sun racing across the sky. If you require a specific time of day, locate your nearest dimensional rift and spend a couple seconds on the Other Side.

However, there is really nothing you can do without the bottle.

Wow, this is great! Gone are the days of my loitering around the park to while away the time! –  RedRiderX Nov 5 '12 at 14:44

If I recall correctly from my playthrough, there is no way to do so. That really frustrated me too. Have a website ready to alt-tab to; StackOverflow is one excellent candidate.

Don't give up on it entirely because of this. There's not too many time-sensitive events, and except for a few annoying glitches and design flaws, the game plays very well.
