Description

Think of this game as a mix of Tomb Raider and Boulder Dash. You play as an Indiana Jones type of adventurer, exploring temples full of traps in the jungles of Angkor Watt, the castles in Bavaria and the frozen monasteries in Tibet.

The game has a lot of secret areas and alternative routes - you can visit any previously beaten level using the world map to explore it again.

The gameplay is quite interactive: trapdoors, realistic rolling boulders, mines, breakable dragon eggs, weight - activated floor plates, it's all there. You also have dynamic water with which you can flood some rooms (or drain others) and use it to extinguish fires or safely transport objects.

Some of the enemies affect the world around them by burning or cutting the objects and you can use their behaviour to your advantage. You also have a grappling hook like Lara Croft and with it your character can pull boulders and enemies.
