- Indiana jones and the temple of doom -

Who doesn't know Indiana Jones, the archeologist with the hat and his trusty whip. The temple of doom was the second Indiana Jones movie but it was the first to be translated as a game. The story revolves around a sacred stone that was taken from a village by the eveil worshippers of Kali. Indy also hears that all the children have been taken away and being the good guy that he is agrees to try and find and rescue them. The game start directly in the mines where the children are forced to mine for more of the sacred stones. With your trusty whip you must take out the guards and free the children.

There are three main levels throughout the game and you will be switching between them after each level. The first are the mines and here you will face not only guards but dangerous creatures like cobras as well. You can use your whip to fight but also to swing around the level between platforms. The second level you will come across is the railway level which was pretty unique at the time of the movies. Here you travel around on a mining cart but there are also children to be saved here. The third type of level is much like the mining levels but this time they are inside the temple of Kali. Each level requires you to save a number of children before you can continue.

Indiana Jones and the temple of doom adheres to the (now) tradition that games made from movie aren't very good. They took some of the action parts and created a game about it but they fail to capture the excitement of the scenes in particular and the being based on a limited number of events in the movie the levels get rather boring quickly. I love the Indiana Jones movies but this game just doesn't cut it I'm afraid.

Overal rating: 5/10

This game was released for many different systems here are some notes:
Amiga Released in 1989.
Altough this is the most powerfull machine the game was released for, graphically it isn't much better than the DOS version.
Amstrad CPC Released in 1987.
Quite different compared to the other versions but in this case different doesn't mean good.
Apple Released in 1989.
Compareable to the C64 version but the text is a bit unclear.
C64 Released in 1987.
A decent version.
DOS Released in 1989.
Graphically almost identical to the amiga version but the sounds are nowhere near as good.
NES Released in 1989.
This is definately the best version as far as playability goes.
Others These versions are not available.
