Lego Indiana Jones: The Original AdventuresEdit
Lego Indiana Jones: The Original Adventures is a 2008 video game developed by Traveller's Tales and published by LucasArts. The game allows players to recreate moments (albeit more humorously) from the first three Indiana Jones films: Raiders of the Lost Ark, Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom, and Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade. It features the same drop in/out co-operative play mode as seen in the Lego Star Wars video games, although it is restricted to local console play. The game was released on June 3, 2008 in the United States and Canada, and June 6, 2008 in Europe. A downloadable demo for Windows was made available on May 13, 2008. This game is based on the Lego Indiana Jones toy line. The Mac OS X version of the game was released on December 4th 2008 by Feral Interactive.
As introduced in Lego Star Wars: The Complete Saga, new moves include clinging onto branches during a jump using Indy's whip. As a promotion, Lego Star Wars: The Complete Saga features Indy as an unlockable playable character.
The game often follows the events in the films, however like the Lego Star Wars series, some scenes from the film have been altered to become more family friendly or just provide comic relief to the player.
The game follows the storylines from the original Indiana Jones films: Raiders of the Lost Ark, Temple of Doom, and Last Crusade. However, the developers modified the storylines to fit the events into 6 game chapters per movie. Barnett College, Dr. Indiana Jones' teaching location from Last Crusade (Marshall College in Raiders of the Lost Ark and Kingdom of the Crystal Skull), serves as the main hub of the game, and different maps on the walls allow access to each of the missions, extra unlockable content and options are found in the different classrooms. Once a player chooses a mission, a cutscene begins that introduces the section of the movie being played. Notable scenes have been recreated from the movies, such as the memorable boulder escape and the battle on the rope bridge, as well as Walter Donovan choosing the incorrect Holy Grail.
There are 82 (standard) playable characters in total, 23 characters which are given to players in the story, and 59 characters which may be purchased from the in-game Library. Then, there are the two custom figures which can be made by the players, and the bonus character Han Solo (much like Indiana Jones was a playable character in Lego Star Wars: The Complete Saga). A few other characters can also be played with the "Secret Characters" extra on, only playable on certain levels. Each character featured in the game has his/her own unique ability, which are required to access new areas when replaying a level in Free Play mode. Lego Indiana Jones allows players to mix and match parts to customize characters and make their own creation like "Belloq Jones" or "Colonel Toht".
Every level has one red parcel that must be found and put into a red and grey postbox that is usually hidden somewhere close by. Usually these parcels can only be accessed with a special character ability when playing a level the second time through. Once the parcel is delivered to the postbox, the player can purchase a special ability back at Barnett college. Instead of canisters like in Lego Star Wars and Lego Batman, the characters collect treasure chests which contain pieces of artifacts instead of vehicles. Each episode (Raiders of the Lost Ark, Temple of Doom, Last Crusade) contains six levels, in which pieces for six unique artifacts can be uncovered. The artifacts (and the level in which they are found) are:
Raiders of the Lost Ark:
- Giant Hovitos Idol (The Lost Temple)
- Nepalese Altar (Into the Mountains)
- Monkey Statue (City of Danger)
- Anubis Statue (The Well of Souls)
- Sphinx (Pursuing the Ark)
- Ark of the Covenant (Opening the Ark)
Temple of Doom:
- Jade Dragon (Shanghai Showdown)
- Ivory Elephant (Pankot Secrets)
- Jewel Eyed Skull (The Temple of Kali)
- Dinosaur Fossil (Free the Slaves)
- Pankot Diamond (Escape the Mines)
- Ceremonial Headdress (Battle on the Bridge)
- Crusader Shield (The Hunt for Sir Richard)
- Suit of Armor (Castle Rescue)
- Gilt Frame Portrait (Motorcycle Escape)
- Eagle Statue (Trouble in the Sky)
- Ancient Amphora (Desert Ambush)
- Fake Holy Grail (Temple of the Grail)
New features were added to the gameplay from the Lego Star Wars series, such as the ability for the player to interact with objects in their environment, e.g. bottles, swords and guns. Players can also build and ride vehicles. The game also incorporates character phobias from the films; for example, if Indiana Jones sees a snake, Willie sees a spider (excluding giant tarantulas), or Henry Jones Senior or Elsa see a rat, they will be frozen with fear and have limited movement capacity until the animals are either dead or out of range. Also, new melee attacks, such as the Whip snag (trips enemies), have been added.
