Tomb Raider series

Group Description

Tomb Raider is a series of action games with platforming and puzzle-solving elements, featuring a recurrent heroine, an archaeologist named Lara Croft. Most of the games in the series involve Lara traversing complex and hazardous locations, solving environmental puzzles and using abilities such as jumping and climbing to access new areas. Lara's trademark weapons are twin pistols with unlimited ammunition; however, she can usually find other weapons and items to help her deal with enemies.

The first game in the series appeared in 1996; building upon the concept of early Prince of Persia games, it is considered one of the progenitors of 3D platformers. The game was followed by numerous sequels and additional versions for handheld and mobile systems, as well as compilations. Lara and the games' backgrounds have since been adapted into two major Hollywood movies, with Angelina Jolie as the main actress.
