ACE (Advanced Computer Entertainment)
Overall it's appealing stuff with chunky, pleasant graphics, but the gameplay's a bit lightweight in parts - level 2 is particularly easy - and a day's play should show you most of the variety the game has to offer.
This is a close conversion of the original coin-op in the sense that none of the essential elements have been left out. However, there are question marks about the quality of that game in the first place. It is basically too easy. Sure, there is the added challenge of seeing how quickly you can complete the game against a ratio of points scored - but I still feel something more arcade-adventure style would have been better.
The Games Machine (UK)
Indy marches around level one though the Ark had some terrible lasting effect on his gait - and his weapon-wielding seems decidedly dodgy. Racing through tunnels, steering the car whilst fighting off Thugs is a sensation which is sadly lacking, the little mobile cruises through the screen at about the pace of a 1541 disk drive. Not a high quality game graphically, the thing creates sufficient frustration to warrant turning the computer off and loading something else... quickly.

Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom is a bad game all the way around. It looks bad, has bad controls, and is way too short. You really don't need to even rescue the children in the first level, they just add more points to your score. Each level can be completed in under 30 seconds.
