Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis, PC

Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis was initially published by LucasArts in 1992 and was immediately recognised as something rather special – at least better than what most of the competition were doing at the time.

What makes Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis so good is the melding of the Raiders of the Lost Ark movie mythos, and the great writing, art and animation talent of LucasArts.

The story is: you – as Indiana Jones – with psychic sidekick Sophia Hapgood, trying to stop the Nazis from using the hidden power of Atlantis to take over the world. The plot is set on the eve of the Second World War, in 1939, and it’s basically a globe-trotting race to uncover the hidden city of Atlantis before the Nazis do.

Visually Fate of Atlantis is relatively simple, but is beautifully-embellished with great animation and lots of surprises. Puzzle-wise: this is as tough as any other point-and-click adventure on the market. ie. easy if you know how, but difficult if you don’t. Discovering what to do is part of the fun of these games, isn’t it? But… if you’re easily frustrated, you can also refer to a walkthrough. There’s no shame in it – if you’re stuck. 🙂

Still available on Steam and GOG today, Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis is LucasArts at the top of their game, but without the overt surrealism of Day of the Tentacle or Sam & Max.
