    Yep, Indiana Jones and his sexxxy assistant are back for more awesome archaeologically oriented adventures! Back in Algiers we are, trying to find something more about Atlantis, Orichalcum and ancient spirits...







    Somewhere Deep In The Atlas Mountains.








    Let's have a better look at that Key Stone we "acquired".

    [​IMG]


    A sunstone, huh ? So that leaves for us to find the Moonstone and the Worldstone, according to Plato's writings...

    Indy, while searching his inventory comes upon the old magazine once again.

    [​IMG]

    :M :M

    Anyway, I think it's time to have a word with with Mr. Al-Jabbar.

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]lookie, lookie !

    [​IMG] Ahh... it is said that three stone disks were needed to open the gates of Atlantis. This looks like one of them. A sunstone, if I'm not mistaken... DR. JONES.

    [​IMG] How do you know who I am ?

    [​IMG] Yeah, how ?

    [​IMG] My dear Miss Hapgood, when you're Omar Al-Jabbar you know these things.

    [​IMG] Then you ARE al-Jabbar !

    [​IMG] Yes, a lowly dealer in oddities and trinkets, at your service.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] What do you know about Atlantis ?

    [​IMG] And don't tell us you don't know anything.

    [​IMG] Well, somewhere deep in the Atlas Mountains there's an archaeological dig site. I'm convinced it contains the remains of an Atlantean outpost.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] Europeans. Germans, I believe.

    Germans, huh ?

    [​IMG] What makes you so sure it's Atlantean ?

    [​IMG] From time to time scoundrels appear in my shop to trade pieces they stole there. The designs are unmistakable.

    [​IMG] Where is it, exactly ?

    [​IMG] I'm not exactly sure. I've learned enough to make a rough map... but it's VERY ROUGH. The problem is the desert is no place for a civilized man like myself... *sigh*

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] We will ?!

    [​IMG] I admire your courage, but you'll never survive the desert. Give up while you still have your lives ahead of you.

    [​IMG] We'll never give up.

    We wont ?! Okay.

    [​IMG] Well, then. Let it be as God wills it. Come, I'll lend you my map and a couple of sturdy camels.


    Wow, this Al-Jabbar dude is very generous. Off we go to the Atlas Mountains !
    But what do we know about these mountains ?...




    So, we've got sturdy camels, we've got a map, nothing can stop us from reaching our goal ! ...Right ?

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    Uh. Maybe not.

    [​IMG]

    He sure seems surprised.

    [​IMG] Tell me, how was your trip ?

    [​IMG] Okay, except our camels died a mile out of town !

    [​IMG] A terrible shame, those were my LAST TWO camels... Perhaps I can make amends in some small way. Do you still have that mask I gave you ?

    Hmmm. He is an untrustworthy fellow, but let's play along.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] I'd like to trade you for it.

    [​IMG] What'll you give me ?

    [​IMG] Well, how about this baseball ? It's been autographed by your country's Lou Gehrig !

    Hey, that's a great trade !

    [​IMG] I'll take it !

    [​IMG] You've made a good exchange, effendi.


    Awesome ! Let's have a closer look at it.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] It's some guy named "Ron Gilbert" ! What a swindle.

    Ron Gilbert ? :lol: That's a valuable signature among today's video game geeks, but alas, it doesn't have much value in 1939...

    :idea: Let's see if we can trade it for a Squab !

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] I'm listening.

    [​IMG] I'll trade this autographed baseball for a squab.

    [​IMG] Hmmmm... Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm...

    Yes, yes... YES ?!

    [​IMG] I'm sorry, effendi, but I cannot make that trade. Although that shade of white fits perfectly in my house.


    So here we are at another puzzle that's different in each playthrough. The Squab vendor will give you hints about what he'd like and you have to get something from Al-Jabbar that fits that description. For now we know that he'd want something white. Let's get back to Mr. Jabbar.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] Do you have anything in mind ?

    [​IMG] Something white would be nice.

    [​IMG] Well, how about this beautiful white cane ? It was once touched by Queen Victoria !

    Yeah, sounds good, but Jabbar just painted that cane white and if we try to give it to the squab vendor, he won't take it.

    [​IMG] Hmm, no. Got anything else ?

    [​IMG] How about this lovely bar of soap ? It's 99 94/100 pure.

    It looks lovely, but it actually smells like garlic and the vendor doesn't want it.

    [​IMG] Don't want it. What else you've got ?

    [​IMG] Well, how about these charming ivory earrings ? They were carved from the tusks of a prehistoric mammoth !

    What a deal !

    [​IMG] I'll take them !

    [​IMG] You've made a great exchange, effendi.


    Of course you didn't expect they were genuine, did you ?

    [​IMG]


    But let's take them to the vendor, at least they don't smell like garlic.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] This gift will save my marriage, effendi! And it's so color-coordinated. Here, HAVE A SQUAB !

    FUCK YES !!!!! WE GOT A SQUAB !!!!!!

    [​IMG] Thank you. (Squab, huh? It looks like a barbecued pigeon...)

    No shit, Indy.


    [​IMG] Mmmm. Looks tasty.


    I bet it does, Anthony, but we won't eat it. Why, you ask ? Because we'll continue this roller coaster of trading --we are in Algiers, after all. We'll give it to the beggar and get that free gift he was talking about.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] Here, have this squab.

    [​IMG] Thank you, effendi. Here's your FREE GIFT.

    Ok, I hope it's not a fake doggie-doo, or something.

    [​IMG]


    Hmm, it's some sort of ticket. Didn't that sign on the wall say something about balloon sightseeing rides ? Let's have a look.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] Will this do ?

    [​IMG] A valuable all-day pass ! Today the skies are yours, effendi !

    Yay !

    [​IMG]


    Wait a minute... maybe we can use this balloon to search for the dig site in Atlas mountains. What an awesome idea !

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]


    ...or not. The rope keeps it from drifting away. I guess we'll need something to cut this rope :wicked smile:

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] Is the view not a great beauty ?

    [​IMG] It's too overpowering to watch any more.

    [​IMG] I hear and obey, effendi.

    Mmmm, Indy and Sophia, alone in a floating balloon... :smug: Why don't we have a word with her...

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] In this light you look just like Vivian Leigh.

    [​IMG] Frankly Indy, I don't give a damn. [TRIVIA !]

    Archaeology comes first.

    So, let's see if we can befriend that knife-thrower and get one of his knives. IIRC he desperately needed an assistant.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] It's refreshing to see such spirit... but my assistant must be a woman. Show business, you know.

    A woman, huh ?

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] No you don't, Jones !

    Time to use our vast powers of persuasion.

    [​IMG] Do it and I'll let you wear my hat.

    [​IMG] I'll let you wear my fist if you keep this up.

    [​IMG] The man's desperate. He needs your help.

    [​IMG] Is this your idea of a friendly NUDGE ?

    [​IMG] Think about the effect on international relations.

    [​IMG] I'm thinking about the effect on my health !

    [​IMG] We won't get anywhere until you volunteer.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] Pretty please ?

    [​IMG] What's with you, anyway ?

    [​IMG] You've got to see this genius in action.

    [​IMG] Really !


    Sophia finally decides to take a closer look...

    [​IMG]


    Now, this puzzle had me stumped for a LONG time when I first played the game. Whatever I said or did to Sophia she always refused to volunteer. There were some subtle clues in the conversation, though. What needs to be done here is to actually *PUSH* her into volunteering.

    [​IMG]

    Gahahaha. That will teach you to snub Indy's compliments !

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] A VOLUNTEER !

    [​IMG] But-

    [​IMG] Now now, my dear, there's nothing to be afraid of.

    [​IMG] But-

    [​IMG] Just walk over to the board...

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]


    Knife-throwers can be persuasive if they want to... The show begins !

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] Thank you for your brave assistance, my dear. Allow me to express my gratitude, by giving you this souvenir knife.

    Mission accompliced !

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] Before I USE it on you !


    Heh, a close inspection on the knife shows that the knife-thrower may not be as good as he claims to be :

    [​IMG]


    But we don't really care, we've got a balloon ride to catch.

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    All your skies are belong to us.

    ^ Please, it's 1939. The knife trowing sequence obviously is a symbolism that depicts forced "consensual" sex.

    After surviving lethal trading negotiations and extreme knife-throwing, we knew that we just had to get out of Algiers. So we did what any sane man would do, we stole a balloon and set off to find the Atlantean Dig Site.

    We're riding the skies, baby !

    [​IMG]


    But how can we find it in this endless desert, especially when our map is as vague as a cheap whore in Calcutta when it comes to discussing quality of service ?









    Digging Holes In The Sand.









    MINIGAME !
    Navigating the balloon isn't easy business, I can tell you that. By dropping ballast we get higher, by venting hydrogen we get lower and each time we do one of these actions the balloon changes the direction it's heading to.

    [​IMG]


    Since we've had the realization that we won't find shit by ourselves, we decide to head over to that nomad camp and see if we can get any help.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] I'll stay here and watch the balloon.

    clever girl.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] Salaam, effendi.

    [​IMG] Have you seen anyone digging around here ?

    [​IMG] Well, I HAVE seen foreigners with trucks and equipment.

    [​IMG] Were they Nazis, do you think ?

    [​IMG] They had pale faces, like you, effendi.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] Hmmm, this "X" is to the south and considerably to the east.

    [​IMG] Thanks for the information.


    Ok, now we're getting somewhere. Let's go one screen south and two screens east.

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]


    There's another camp here. I hope if they can offer some more help.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] Hmmm, you are VERY close to this site. This "X" is a little to the south and slightly to the east.

    It seems we're running out of film extras.

    [​IMG] Thanks for your help.


    What do you know, "X" marks the spot.

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    What the hell ? Someone's shooting at us !

    [​IMG]

    Quickly, use the "throw a Balloon on his face" maneuver !

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    Always works.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] I've seen better landings.

    [​IMG] Him too. :smug: So, what do we do now ?

    [​IMG] We could try to patch up our bullet-ridden balloon... or we could hike to that dig site on the left.


    I've got a better idea. Let's head to the right. Into vast, uncrossable desert.

    [​IMG]


    I bet this is a nod to all those Sierra adventures where you could find death in every turn.

    [​IMG]


    Man, how did they manage to cramp so many puns in one sentence? Anyway, we should head over to the dig site.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] Wait, where are you going ?

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    But Nur-Ab-Sal works in mysterious ways...

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] Are you ok ?

    [​IMG] I think so...

    [​IMG] Good, I'll have you out in no time.

    [​IMG] Hurry !

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] $*& !

    [​IMG] Could you speak up ? I didn't catch that.

    [​IMG] I said $*&*# !

    [​IMG] Okay. Stay there, I'll go find some help.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] Just kidding :smug:

    [​IMG] :x


    Ok we've had enough fun with Sophia, let's check this place out.

    [​IMG]


    As for getting Sophia out from the same hole she fell in, it doesn't seem possible, since the table is jammed in there tightly.

    [​IMG]


    What about the truck ?

    [​IMG]


    No shit. Let's have a look at the engine.

    [​IMG]


    It seems we wont be using the truck anytime soon. So, I think it's time we searched the actual dig site. There's a ladder we can use.

    [​IMG]


    Damn, it's pitch black in here. Thus, instead for the "Look" command we have a "Touch" command. There's a "metal thing" here, let's try to see if we can understand what it is...

    [​IMG]


    Robocop's primary functioning organ ?

    [​IMG]


    No, it's the next best thing. It seems that there is something on the top...

    [​IMG] It feels like a gas tap.

    Mmm. And what's that on the side ?

    [​IMG] It feels like an on/off switch.

    Great ! Let's push it.

    [​IMG] Nothing's happening. Maybe it's out of gas.

    DAMN! Let's see if we can find anything else that could be of use...
    Hey, what's that ?

    [​IMG]

    ...or Robocop's primary functioning organ.

    [​IMG] I hope it's a hose :/


    Fortunately for Indy, it's a hose. Not far from that spot we find something else that could be useful :

    [​IMG]


    Ok, so now we have a hose, a clay jar and a portable generator that's out of gas... Are you thinking what I'm thinking ?

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]


    A jar filled with gas ! Time to shed some light on this situation...

    [​IMG]

    Ta Daaa !

    [​IMG]


    Finally we get to do some archaeological work. There's a painting on the left wall :

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] I've seen THAT before.

    Yeah we know. What about that circular thing between the two girls ?

    [​IMG] Is that a ball these figures are tossing around... or a stone disk ?

    Whatever it is we've seen enough movies to know that these things are probably pushable.

    [​IMG]

    AHA !

    [​IMG]

    Ooops. Now the first time that I played this, I was surprised when I didn't find anything in here. Only later did I find out that this was a puzzle concerning another path (WITS I think.)


    Anyway, let's move on. A good archaeologist searches thoroughly his surroundings and finds anything that has even the slightest possibility of being useful.

    [​IMG]

    Wait, what ? How did a ship came to be here ? Are those theories that say that Sahara used to be a sea, true ? Maybe in the ancient times the Atlas Mountains were just an Island and that's why the Atlanteans made an outpost here... Mind-boggling, I know.

    Bottom-line: we grab the rib. Then we have a look on the table.

    [​IMG]


    We pocket that too. Now what's that on the right wall ?

    [​IMG]


    Could Sophia be behind that wall ? I bet that ship rib can help us bring it down.

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    DAUM ! We found something even better than Sophia... a mural !

    [​IMG] It's a map of the island of CRETE with a hole in the middle. Hmmm, didn't I read about that in the Lost Dialogue ?

    Let's see :

    [​IMG]

    Hmmm... So, the sunstone was used to open entrances to many Atlantean outposts... Since there's a hole in the mural, maybe we can use the peg to hold the sunstone.

    [​IMG]


    Fits like a charm !

    [​IMG]


    Now what did the lost dialogue say ? ...Horns concealed by darkness... The sunstone has one full sun, two half suns and something that looks like a moon. Or is it... "Darkness" ?

    [​IMG]


    That should do it. Now, let's push the peg-

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] Sophia ?

    Yep.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] I thought you were going to leave me in there !

    [​IMG] Believe me, I was tempted.

    [​IMG] Lucky you didn't, here's something we may need !

    [​IMG] A distributor cap !

    [​IMG] It fell on my head when I sank into the hole. And that's not all, look !

    [​IMG] What is it ?

    [​IMG] It's an amber fish on a string.

    [​IMG] I can see that. What does it do ?

    [​IMG] How should I know ? I suppose you've come up with something more interesting ?

    [​IMG] Maybe... Look where the Sunstone is centered on this mural, it's the island of CRETE. I'll bet Crete is where we'll find the GREATER COLONY of Atlantis Plato mentioned.

    [​IMG] That sounds possible. Let's go !


    Hold your horses, Sophia. First let's see what this fish thing is all about...

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] It must be detecting the orichalcum residue !

    Interesting.

    So, it's time to leave this joint, but how will we manage that ? We may have a distributor cap that we could use on the truck's engine, but we're still missing a spark plug. Say, you don't think we could get a spark plug from the generator, eh ? Let's open the panel...

    [​IMG]

    Fuck yeah ! Let's grab it.

    [​IMG] I better turn the generator off first.

    [​IMG]

    And now we have a spark plug.

    We should leave, but in this darkness it's easy to stumble around and touch various things by mistake...

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    So close and yet so far... You wanted romance, you get romance :smug:


    [​IMG] Yeah! Come on, come on, come on, come on
    Now touch me, baby !



    Bah, let's get outta here. We use the distributor cap and the spark-plug on the engine and...

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]



    Crete, here we come.

    Puzzles broke that game for me, too. They took all the enjoyment out of the game, and I've played quite my share of difficult adventure games in my time (The Dig and one about Sherlock Holmes, among others).

    No I think this was from another project that never got past from making some basic sprites.

    Fountain of youth seemed very promising, but unfortunately it seems abandoned now.

    Insert clever insult here
    Yup, agree there. Plus, page 8 looks close enough. Doesn't it?

    Now where were we ? Ah yes, the Island of Crete in Greece.

    The good thing about using seaplanes is that they bring you right where you want to be, and in this case it's the ancient ruins of Knossos.








    Taking The Bull By The Horns.











    So, is Knossos the Greater colony that's mentioned in Plato's Lost Dialog ? We'll see.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] I don't know, but we should be careful. Something tells me they are not far away.

    [​IMG] Let's look around.


    Let's do that. There's some kind of pedestal here.

    [​IMG]

    Then let's see if the sunstone fits.

    [​IMG]

    Yep.

    [​IMG]

    I wonder if the "darkness under the horns" thing works here.

    [​IMG]

    Nope.

    It seems we'll need something else to make this work, so let's go to the main area of the ruins...

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] Hang on a minute... Nur-Ab-Sal speaks !

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] He bids us to find the underworld passage to his ancestral home !

    [​IMG] How do you do it ? Radio ? Signals from the fillings in your teeth ?

    [​IMG] Still the wiseguy. You'll learn.


    Charming as always. Let's head to the hill, there's some kind of instrument there.

    [​IMG]


    We "borrow" it, of course. Now let's have a look at the ruins. The important stuff we'll find inside rooms and under rocks are randomly placed each time.

    Most of the chambers have nothing but dust and empty pots...

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]


    Since the Greeks suffer from an economical crisis (that will continue to exist for at least 7 decades) they have no one to guard the ruins, so we can do as we please. In the center of the area we find a monument depicting two giant horns.

    [​IMG]


    We also find various piles of rubble scattered around. Most of them are unimportant, but one of them seems more interesting...

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] There's a statue here !

    [​IMG]


    Hmmm... And it's wedged to the ground, unmovable. What's even more interesting is what we find in another chamber :

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] It's an ancient diagram of some kind.

    [​IMG] There's a bull's head, horns and tail.

    [​IMG] The lines appear to converge on that circle. Could the circle be one of the stone disks ?


    AHA ! Haven't we already found a bull's head statue ? Let's search the area some more.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] It's a bull's tail statue.


    Eureka ! So we have the everything that's shown in the mural. Now we somehow need to align the two statues with the big horns. I guess that surveyor's transit will come in handy after all.

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]


    Awesome ! Let's have a look. Here's Sophia...

    [​IMG]


    But now what ? The first time I played it, I lost a lot of time with this puzzle. I tried look for an place that can be seen from both statues when looking at the horns, but that didn't help. What I actually should be doing is align the Bull's tail with the right horn...

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]


    And the Bull's head with the left horn.

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]


    And we find the spot. It's marked by an "X"

    [​IMG]


    Now all we need to do is dig. I bet that ship rib can do the job.

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    :smug:

    [​IMG] It's got a hole in the middle and little moons carved into the surface.

    [​IMG] It must be one of the Moonstones Plato wrote about !


    Now that we have the moonstone maybe we should head back to that pedestal and place *both* stones.

    [​IMG]


    What was it that Plato said ?

    [​IMG]

    Let's see...

    This stuff is the reason what we became archaeologists, my friends. That and the hot chicks of course.

    [​IMG] The legend of Atlantis isn't any MORE far-fetched... Maybe it's true too.

    [​IMG] I think the last stone disk and Atlantis...

    I hated the labyrinth bit. It was a pain to navigate back when I was 9 years old. And there seemed to be no end of needless fightng on the fists path. I did like the part where you pushed a gant stone tablet onto a guard though :smug:

    ...Not really a spoiler, since that part only happens on the fists path

    Yeah, when labyrinths come into video games (especially adventure games) you know it's most likely a disaster. Fortunately this one isn't as much of a pain in the ass, as in some other games (Legend of Kyrandia comes to mind)

    And at least here they have valid reason to include a labyrinth, since it's THE Labyrinth.

    Nothing compares to those labyrinth-like catacombs in Shadow of the Comet.

    MOAR!!! By the way, I think that labyrinths suck too in jrpgs/rpgs with high enemy encounter rating, the only thing worse than a long maze is a long maze filled with deadly enemies every 3 steps.
