Top Secret (May, 1994)
"I. J. & TD" to połączenie osobliwej platformówki ze zręcznościówką. Grafika jest ładna, postacie nieźle animowane, chociaż nie jest to szczyt możliwości. Muzyczka podtrzymuje wątki filmowe, lecz do artyzmu jej daleko. W sumie gra niezła.

O herói deverá enfrentar todos os perigos do templo da perdição para salvar o príncipe.
Rooms wrap around both horizontally and vertically, and the slight degree of freedom is nice. However, the game’s simple design gets repetitive, although the music based on the movie is nice to hear. If you can make it past all the waves, you get to face Mola Ram and the iconic rope bridge.

What’s the point of collecting items if they don’t do anything other than look pretty and add to your cool factor? Does it matter? It’s a Temple of Doom, not a Temple of Personal Accommodation.
The Video Game Critic (May 23, 2008)
Ugh! Temple of Doom's graphics are butt-ugly, with repulsive color schemes and pitiful animation. The Michael Jackson-impersonating thugs mindlessly fall from platform to platform, and often hurl themselves directly into the lava. The fighting aspect of the game feels like a complete afterthought. Switching weapons is awkward (hold select while moving the directional pad?!), and firing your gun will instantly kill a bad guy anywhere on the screen! I also find it odd how you can grab the same item over and over again to rack up points. Indiana Jones Temple of Doom is so bad that it made me want to rip someone's heart out, tie them to a metal rack, and lower them into a lava pit. But wouldn't you know it - it turns out that's illegal in Maryland! Temple of Doom's only saving grace is the horrible Last Crusade game for the NES, which makes this look almost respectable by comparison.
