> INDIANA JONES AND THE LAST CRUSADE by Lucasfilm Games


• Completed by Brendan Phoenix
Reviewed by Vinny Mainolfi

I love the Indiana Jones movies and remember how excited I was when I first sat down in the cinema back in 1981 to watch the first instalment, Raiders of the Lost Ark. Unfortunately, Lucasfilm Games just couldn't manage to translate the movies into a solid Commodore 64 games - which is a real shame as it's an opportunity missed. Instead, they seemed to produce third-rate indy games that missed the who concept of adventure! I mean, even ZZAP64! thought this game was a dud and scored it a measly 36%. I have to admit that it's worth a little more than ZZAP64!'s score, but it's still not a memorable game. That aside, is the ending any good?


"RUN INDY!"


The End.

HOW WAS IT COMPLETED?: Brendan used a level skip cheats.

SO WHAT HAPPENS?: The final level is completed and a game ending message appears, which reads: "WELL DONE INDY. YOU HAVE ACCOMPLISHED YOUR DARING QUEST. YOU HAVE RESCUED YOUR FATHER." This is accompanied by a small ditty taken from the movie's theme tune.

COMMENTS:

  • Vinny: You've got the ending message and an Indy ditty, but it's still a very poor ending! I always thought that Lucasfilm Games produced quality games and game endings, but that's probably just a myth or my imagination running wild.

  • Andy Vaisey: Could have been a great film license! It wasn't. This is reflected in the ending.

  • Brendan Phoenix: This is the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull in relation to the quality of ending, i.e. pants!

  • Andrew Fisher: The "Action Game" was done by Tiertex for US Gold, not Lucasfilm... shame the C64 didn't get the point & click "Adventure Game" instead.

FINAL SAY: It's a poor ending for George and his boys.

G.E. RATING: 2.5 / 10
