Indiana Jones And The Last Crusade

Surefire adventure and excitement are a guarantee when you purchase this little beauty. Following the plot of the Last Crusade film very, very closely, you must take on the role of Indiana Jones and battle your way through four increasingly difficult levels to locate the last resting place of the Holy Grail.

Level 1 sees you groping in the dark of the caverns to locate the Cross of Coronado. Pick up torches to light your way and be sure to make a hasty escape across the top of the train. That secured, your next task is to locate the crusader's shield in the catacombs. Read your copy of the Byzantine Crusader carefully to make sure you pick the right archway on your search, otherwise you could end up roaming around in the catacombs until way after tea-time. Not recommended.

On level 3, you must locate your father's lost notebook, making sure that you have a valid pass on you at all times.

Unfortunately, these little blighters have a tendency to fall apart after a while so, to ensure that you don't set off the alarm, remember to pick up the passes.

If you manage to get this far, your last task is a race against the clock, as you take on the traps set by the crusading knights, on the way to the Grail. Succeed and you'll save your father's life. Fail and his heart turns to stone.

This one's a multi-load but don't let that deter you, as it is a beautifully crafted offering, featuring excellent graphics and tremendous atmosphere. For Indy and adventure lovers, this is one blast well worth getting hold of.
