look through there.. figure out how to find time and :

startTime = ....;
endTime = startTime + 120;
do {
/* game code */
nowTime = ....;
} while (nowTime < endTime);

Or use time() and sessions
<?php
session_start();

do{
$_SESSION["startSec"] = time();
/* game code */
}
if($_SESSION["startSec"] < (60*60*2) {
ok
}

Instead af sessions, you could set a cookie

And with some Javascript you could show the  time there's left to play
