Indiana Jones' Greatest Adventures

Moby ID: 6785
SNES Specs

Description official descriptions

Indiana Jones gets the Super Star Wars treatment for SNES. The title consists of platform levels from the first three Indy films: Raiders of the Lost Ark, Temple of Doom, and Last Crusade. Players get to use Indy's trademark whip, as well as guns, grenades, and his fists to get through the game.

Indiana Jones Greatest Adventures also features special levels such as running from the giant boulder (Raiders), the Mine Cart chase (Temple of Doom), flying a biplane (Last Crusade), and fighting a Nazi commander on a tank heading off a cliff (Last Crusade).

The game is highlighted by selections from the John Williams score, and includes sound effects, digitized speech, and image captures during cutscenes.

Trivia

Cancelled Genesis version

A port was developed for the Sega Genesis by U.S. Gold and was even reviewed by GamePro in its August 1995 edition (rated 3.5 out of 5.0), but it was never released.

Graphics

Just like the Super Star Wars series of games for the SNES, this game was published by JVC Musical Industries, Inc. who apparently re-used some of the graphical content from the Star Wars games for this Indiana Jones platformer. This is especially evident when comparing the character animations of Han Solo with Indiana Jones. Note how Han's/Indy's animations for jumping and firing look very much alike in terms of pose: Indy firing his pistol looks just like Han Solo with his blaster except they wear different clothes. Given the fact both characters were played by Harrison Ford and his video game representations would thus look alike, re-using the animations does seem efficient.

References

In the movie Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom (1984), Indy meets Lao Che in Club Obi Wan (obvious Star Wars reference). There's a sign in this game for Club Joruus. Joruus was a clone of the Jedi Master, Jorus C'baoth, but insane from the cloning process and turned to the Dark Side.
