Collecting, Retro gaming

A bit from my personal collection – Indiana Jones

I just love everything and anything Indy…and I love Lucasfilm..
I played both the action and adventure games released by Lucasfilm in the late 80’s and early 90’s, the action game wasn’t really my cup of tea but the adventures were really something else. I have really fond memories of The Last Crusade, The Adventure Game, loved the location and the puzzles, it was very true to the movie of the same name.
I played it originally in all it’s EGA glory, which looked absolutely fantastic. I later on played the VGA version, which didn’t leave a strong visual impression.

Fate of the Atlantis
One of my favourite adventure games has to be Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis. Fate of Atlantis was the sequel to the 1989 adventure game Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, both developed by Lucasfilm Games/LucasArts. Atlantis was met with critical acclaim when released in 1992 and it sold well over one million units (on all platforms which it was released for).
In 1993 an enhanced “talkie” edition with full voice acting and digitized sound effects was release on CD.
The story was written by Hal Barwood and the designer Noah Falstein, who had rejected the original plan to base it on Indiana Jones and the Monkey King/Garden of Life, a rejected script written by Chris Columbus for the third movie.

Below is some of my sealed Indiana Jones games.
