After the events of "Raiders of the Lost Ark", Dr. Henry Jones is persuaded to go for another adventure...

The adventure is chronologically set between "Raiders of the Lost Ark" and "Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom".

Altough there are lots of fact mistakes and locations don't look like their real life counterparts ( Prague, Istanbul ), you get the feeling, the atmosphere of the given location. And face it - if it was 100% authentic, it wouldn't be as (re)playable as it is. Double Helix Games did their job more than well I think.

The gameplay is mainly beat'em up / shoot'em up with strong emphasis on melee and armed close combat.
Gunplay is simplistic ( Indy aims and targets enemies on his own just as Lara Croft, no crosshair visible ), only if you tap look key you can aim manually ( crosshair appears ).

Melee on the other hand is very rich. Indy and other characters ( mainly enemies ) can use various melee combos and grabs. Walls, ledges, railings - everything is taken into an account and can be used to gain advantage in the brawl. Surrounding items and furniture can be used as weapons as well - chairs, table legs, liquor bottles, shovels, lever handles, torches...all these can be picked and handled as improvised weapons. Also you can disarm enemies and use their weapons aganist them - swords, spears, machetes, knives, firearms and so on. But enemies can disarm YOU as well, so better be cautious all the time.

Of course there is also platforming and some logic puzzles try to test your wits, but with two or three exceptions these parts are easy.

One major drawback of this game is a camera. Sometimes, especially if you are cornered, expect to see nothing -_-. But if you avoid such situations, you are fine for the most of the game.

Altogether, this piece is maybe not a world wonder, but provides unexpected amount of entertainment. And if you are an action gamer, or more - PC / MAC action melee beat'em up oriented gamer, then this is without a doubt a must. For a PC / MAC there is not too many other games of this genre which can offer you such a rich variety in a brawl while avoiding stereotype quite good by mixing in other gameplay elements.

Greetings, Indy fans and ( or ) MAC / PC beat'em up genre fans.

Dragon Pearl mod file has passed Moddb check, so you can go to the mods -> Dragon Pearl mod and download it!

The mod does gameplay changes, audiovisuals are intact. If you want to see the difference it does, watch videos from retail version and then compare with videos from Dragon Pearl mod.

Since it is the first public release, I would like all of you who will try it out to comment and point out too disturbing bugs. Unfortunately, some glitches such as slash particles left on weapons or sometimes misused sounds are toll for more thrilling combat and cannot be eliminated with current knowledge of the engine mechanics.

Have fun!

Andrashi

Anyone know how I can open up level files in this game? I want to try the RopeTest.sls and whipGym.sls levels left in the level folder. Thanks in advance.

Just switch them out with one of the standard levels by renaming the files. Be sure to make back-ups so you can be sure to get things back to the way they were.
