It is 1938 and adventurer Indiana Jones is joined by his father on this quest, preventing Adolf Hitler from capturing the Holy Grail. He will have to deal with Nazi guards, the Luftwaffe and enemy spies as he tries to stop the tyrannical Nazi leader.The Graphic Adventure
uses the same SCUMM gameplay system as the previous Maniac Mansion
. Most of the screen is used for a visual rendition of the current scene. At the bottom of the screen are words, which can be clicked on using the mouse to activate their functions. For example, objects can be picked up, used, pushed or pulled, and turned on and off. Most locations are from the movie, but some further scenes are added.
In keeping with Indiana's action-man persona, the game also features pure action scenes. Unlike most Lucasfilm adventures, you can die.
Two PC versions of the game were released, one with 16 color EGA graphics, and one with 256 color VGA graphics.

The Press Says
There are currently no topics for this game.
The credits are randomized so that each of the three main designers gets "top billing" at one point or another.
Dialogue between Indy and other NPCs plays a crucial role in the progression of this game. According to the folks at Lucasfilm, every dialogue situation can be solved either by talking your way out of it, or by resorting to fistfighting.
The package contained the "Holy Grail Diary". It contained essential information for solving the holy grail puzzle at the end of the game.
In the German version of the game all Third Reich insignia were repainted and made invisible. (Remember the scene, where Hitler signs the diary for example - there is not a single swastika around in the German version.)
That's because in Germany no toys are allowed to wake resemblances to Hitler's regime. And computer games are (legally) toys. There is one overlooked instance in which swastikas are still seen: when a guard is knocked out during a fist fight, stars in swastika form appear over his head.
Indiana Jones and The Last Crusade: The Graphic Adventure
was the first of two graphic adventures by LucasArts to incorporate an IQ (Indy Quotient), which was a scoring system (the second was Fate of Atlantis
). There were many different ways of completing the game.
- Like in many other of LucasArts' games, Max makes an appearance, this time with Sam too! They can be found at the far right in Indy's office where they're "disguised" as a totem pole.
- In versions of the game that have the translation table copy protection, there is a Indy in-joke. In the top right corner of Indy's writing pad are two crossed out phone numbers. The names next to the two numbers are Marion, and Willie, which were Indy's love interests from the first two Indiana Jones films, Raiders of the Lost Ark, and Temple of Doom.
Although its based on the movie, the game does take same liberties. There are three possible endings, and several "alternate" ways to get from one point of the story to another (ie. when the Jones have to go to Alexandria).
