Live From The Basement: Indiana Jones & The Last Crusade (Lets Play & Review)

Hello Dwellers and Welcome to the Basement....

Tonight we're doing a little retro game, it's Indiana Jones & The Last Crusade: The graphic adventure, one of my favorite games of all time!  -- Watch live at 

In the early 90s, I was more a PC gamer than a console one, and one of my favorite games was Indiana Jones & The Last Crusade (the Graphic Adventure), from LucasArts, and while it was published in 1989, I didn't play it for the first time until I think 1996... and I have a lot of fond memories playing this up in my room, working my way all the way up until I was able to retrieve the Grail.

That said, the game itself is more of an 'alternate take' on The Last Crusade, filling out certain familiar scene from the movie with puzzles and alternate ways to get through things. And while I remember quite a lot of the solutions from 20 years ago, I remember there being a lot... and I mean a LOT of trial and error, hell in the video I'm saving every few moments in the castle, because I'm still paranoid about making a mistake when it comes to trying to make my way to Henry Jones Sr.

The controls are pretty solid, you can use the mouse, but also there are key commands, the first four letter keys on the left hand side of the key board correspond with the on screen options for things to have Indy do, the numeric key pad is used to fight when those opportunities came up (far to frequently during my broadcast). It's very simple to learn.

Graphically, it's a late 1980s computer game that was cutting edge for its time, but yeah it looks dated, and the sound isn't the best, but all that really matters is that the game is still fun.

If you've never played it before, give it a try. But if you want something with better sound and sharper graphics, go play Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis.

Hmmm I think I might want to revisit that...
