US Gold/£29.99/Master System
The man with the whip, thong and chain is back and this time he's brought his kinky dad in on the act. The third in the Indy Jones series, sees Indy trying to find the Holy Grail before the Nazis get to it. All he has to help him are his father's sketchy notes, jotted down on a pad posted to him from his father in Italy.
Indiana Jones And The Last Crusade is based loosely round the film and is consequently split into various parts. In the first scene, you have to search a network of caverns, caves and chasms to reach the Cross of Coronado. The ancient artefact has been stolen by treasure looters, who aim to use it for their own gain. You must first find the whip and then fight your way past thugs or put the cross in a museum where it belongs. Having collected the cross, you must escape on the roof of a circus train to level two.
And so to Castle Brunwald, to track down the other half of the shield of the Knights Templar, which gives clues as to the whereabouts of the Grail and news of where Indy's father is held. Next stop is a zeppelin, dodging Nazis, rats and lightning. And there's more. The Grail's in sight, but disappearing tiles, invisible bridges and fake cups do their utmost to thwart your plans.
At times the gameplay can get frustrating due to untimely deaths - however, variety and stunning graphics keep you gripped.
