Product Description

Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom is a 1984 American fantasy-adventure film directed by Steven Spielberg. It is the second film in the Indiana Jones franchise and a prequel to 1981's Raiders of the Lost Ark, as well as a partial remake of Gunga Din. After arriving in India, Indiana Jones is asked by a desperate village to find a mystical stone. He agrees, stumbling upon a Kali-worshiping Thuggee cult practicing child slavery, black magic, and ritual human sacrifice. Producer and co-writer George Lucas decided to make the film a prequel as he did not want the Nazis to be the villains again. The original idea was to set the film in China, with a hidden valley inhabited by dinosaurs. Other rejected plot devices included the Monkey King and a haunted castle in Scotland. Lucas then wrote a film treatment that resembled the film's final storyline. Lawrence Kasdan, Lucas's collaborator on Raiders of the Lost Ark, turned down the offer to write the script, and Willard Huyck and Gloria Katz were hired as his replacement, with the resultant screenplay partly based upon the 1939 film Gunga Din.[2]

1.0 out of 5 stars Crystal Skulls Everywhere September 17, 2014
The 1984 movie is a classic. This 1988 game is not. That’s the first piece of knowledge that you need. There were two different copies of the game (basically the same) by two different companies. They would eventually go to court with only one standing. Tangent last out to Mindscape. And although Tengen games were usually pretty solid, the game itself wasn't anything to fight over honestly. It might have sold well, but the game is annoying.
First irritation is the horrible view. It’s literally brain bending trying to figure out what perspective you’re looking at the game at! It’s not a sidescroller, it’s not a platformer. What is it? It wouldn’t be as annoying, but you got enemies coming at you. You can fall to your death. And those blasted conveyer belts will get you killed too! Also your weapons suck. Seriously. I have never been sadder about using a whip.
Another stupid thing, if you die on wave 9 (stage 9) or above then you had to start back at 9. This is annoying because there are 12 waves! Just a stupid idea. Definitely a Crystal Skull of a video game. Not worth having in your NES collection.

2.0 out of 5 stars Five Steps Forward. Wait... You're exhausted now. November 17, 2014
This is a loose port of the arcade game of the same name. The object is for Indy to rescue kidnapped children from the cultists. Find the kids, clear the level. Indycan find and/or use weapons like his trusty whip which will let him swing from posts, pistols etc to deal with the Thugee guards that really want to keep kids in little cages for some reason.

The main problems with the game are that the objective is unclear, and the perspective which seems to be isometric mashed flat then mapped onto an infinite scrolling plane makes navigation needlessly confusing. If you can wrap your head around those issues though, you do get to ride around in mine carts a lot looking for kids.

I got this game back when it was brand new, and I managed to sink a fair amount of time into it as a kid. I can't say the game's terrible as a result, but it is rather repetitive. I wouldn't recommend this to anyone but collectors who want a complete collection but have no intention of playing the games they're collecting.

2.0 out of 5 stars not one of tengen's best November 11, 2008
Fun: 2.0 out of 5 stars   
indiana jones and the temple of doom, what can i say? this game had a lot going for it since the movie good, but alas, it was not ment to be. the first time you play the game, you bigin to knowtice something, the games messed up. when you jump, you fall down. at first, i thought it was natual to fall, but then you realize the only way this is possible is if indiana was climing, which makes no sense. another thing screw up is the way you change weapon. it's awkward and annoying having to reach over to the select button and push up, down, left or right just to swich weapons. it dosen,t even pause the game. and since the screens are looped, you going to get confused faster than indiana jones would. theirs more i can talk about, but it's not worth it. the game is fun, for the fist 10 seconds you play, but it soon falls apart as you go on.

for your own sake, don't waste you hard earned money on this garbage.
