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".

295q26s.jpg



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.

2z4brzk.jpg


:M :M

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

14c400n.jpg

wswjns.jpg
lookie, lookie !

34fbi83.jpg
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.

30ww307.jpg
How do you know who I am ?

2ufu936.jpg
Yeah, how ?

34fbi83.jpg
My dear Miss Hapgood, when you're Omar Al-Jabbar you know these things.

2ufu936.jpg
Then you ARE al-Jabbar !

34fbi83.jpg
Yes, a lowly dealer in oddities and trinkets, at your service.

308h6z4.jpg


30ww307.jpg
What do you know about Atlantis ?

33bo7l3.jpg
And don't tell us you don't know anything.

34fbi83.jpg
Well, somewhere deep in the Atlas Mountains there's an archaeological dig site. I'm convinced it contains the remains of an Atlantean outpost.

vxhg6c.jpg


34fbi83.jpg
Europeans. Germans, I believe.

Germans, huh ?

30ww307.jpg
What makes you so sure it's Atlantean ?

34fbi83.jpg
From time to time scoundrels appear in my shop to trade pieces they stole there. The designs are unmistakable.

30ww307.jpg
Where is it, exactly ?

34fbi83.jpg
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*

2m5z888.jpg


4t96bc.jpg
We will ?!

34fbi83.jpg
I admire your courage, but you'll never survive the desert. Give up while you still have your lives ahead of you.

30ww307.jpg
We'll never give up.

We wont ?! Okay.

34fbi83.jpg
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 ?...

ATLAS MOUNTAINS said:
The Atlas Mountains are a mountain range across a northern stretch of Africa extending about 2,500 km (1,500 miles) through Morocco, Algeria, and Tunisia.

zkn7ye.jpg


What's really interesting is that the mountains were home to a number of plant and animal species unique in Africa, often more like those of Europe. I wonder why that is ? Also, what about the name ? Plato said that Atlantis and the Atlantic Ocean were named after Atlas, the eldest son of Poseidon, the founder of the kingdom. So, how come come these mountains have this name ?

2nc2fjo.jpg


Did the Atlanteans come to these mountains to form an outpost ? Maybe because they are rich in natural resources ? Because in the Atlas mountains you can find deposits of iron ore, lead ore, copper, silver, mercury, rock salt, phosphate, marble, anthracite coal, and natural gas, among other resources.

51vs6s.jpg


Maybe someone was looking for Orichalcum. :smug:

:Atlantis wild theories end:



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

2hfsvax.jpg

aw6jgo.jpg


Uh. Maybe not.

sc9yxi.jpg


He sure seems surprised.

34fbi83.jpg
Tell me, how was your trip ?

iliuso.jpg
Okay, except our camels died a mile out of town !

34fbi83.jpg
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.

21e251s.jpg


34fbi83.jpg
I'd like to trade you for it.

30ww307.jpg
What'll you give me ?

34fbi83.jpg
Well, how about this baseball ? It's been autographed by your country's Lou Gehrig !

Hey, that's a great trade !

30ww307.jpg
I'll take it !

34fbi83.jpg
You've made a good exchange, effendi.


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

mmufq9.jpg


4t96bc.jpg
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 !

5v29oy.jpg


bjeres.jpg
I'm listening.

30ww307.jpg
I'll trade this autographed baseball for a squab.

bjeres.jpg
Hmmmm... Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm...

Yes, yes... YES ?!

bjeres.jpg
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.

esiycj.jpg


34fbi83.jpg
Do you have anything in mind ?

30ww307.jpg
Something white would be nice.

34fbi83.jpg
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.

30ww307.jpg
Hmm, no. Got anything else ?

34fbi83.jpg
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.

30ww307.jpg
Don't want it. What else you've got ?

34fbi83.jpg
Well, how about these charming ivory earrings ? They were carved from the tusks of a prehistoric mammoth !

What a deal !

30ww307.jpg
I'll take them !

34fbi83.jpg
You've made a great exchange, effendi.


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

2ezp6aa.jpg



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

qx5ph0.jpg


bjeres.jpg
This gift will save my marriage, effendi! And it's so color-coordinated. Here, HAVE A SQUAB !

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

30ww307.jpg
Thank you. (Squab, huh? It looks like a barbecued pigeon...)

No shit, Indy.


2dukd1.jpg
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.

2zhgsw1.jpg


30ww307.jpg
Here, have this squab.

288mdg.jpg
Thank you, effendi. Here's your FREE GIFT.

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

2wprvkm.jpg



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.

2dsgrrk.jpg


30ww307.jpg
Will this do ?

11ucdgl.jpg
A valuable all-day pass ! Today the skies are yours, effendi !

Yay !

2vxr2ht.jpg



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

2eybd4i.jpg

rsfm90.jpg



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

11lltt0.jpg


11ucdgl.jpg
Is the view not a great beauty ?

4t96bc.jpg
It's too overpowering to watch any more.

11ucdgl.jpg
I hear and obey, effendi.

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

2zoyuzt.jpg


30ww307.jpg
In this light you look just like Vivian Leigh.

33bo7l3.jpg
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.

99gspi.jpg


1fxnk5.jpg
It's refreshing to see such spirit... but my assistant must be a woman. Show business, you know.

A woman, huh ?

23mr1p5.jpg


33bo7l3.jpg
No you don't, Jones !

Time to use our vast powers of persuasion.

4t96bc.jpg
Do it and I'll let you wear my hat.

33bo7l3.jpg
I'll let you wear my fist if you keep this up.

30ww307.jpg
The man's desperate. He needs your help.

2ufu936.jpg
Is this your idea of a friendly NUDGE ?

30ww307.jpg
Think about the effect on international relations.

2ufu936.jpg
I'm thinking about the effect on my health !

30ww307.jpg
We won't get anywhere until you volunteer.

2drgfu1.jpg


4t96bc.jpg
Pretty please ?

2ufu936.jpg
What's with you, anyway ?

30ww307.jpg
You've got to see this genius in action.

33bo7l3.jpg
Really !


Sophia finally decides to take a closer look...

35lvr5x.jpg



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.

15pmmmw.jpg


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

o6eh6q.jpg


1fxnk5.jpg
A VOLUNTEER !

2ufu936.jpg
But-

1fxnk5.jpg
Now now, my dear, there's nothing to be afraid of.

2ufu936.jpg
But-

1fxnk5.jpg
Just walk over to the board...

4h8sb4.jpg

fvhirc.jpg



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

2lmuliq.jpg

2q8bzpd.jpg

670h9v.jpg


1fxnk5.jpg
Thank you for your brave assistance, my dear. Allow me to express my gratitude, by giving you this souvenir knife.

Mission accompliced !

jgmpvb.jpg


33bo7l3.jpg
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 :

161kvgw.jpg



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

29l0kgo.jpg

^ 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 !

20ushgh.jpg



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.

p2ct4.jpg



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.

30hwriq.jpg


2ufu936.jpg
I'll stay here and watch the balloon.

clever girl.

2w35mk7.jpg


209lh90.jpg
Salaam, effendi.

30ww307.jpg
Have you seen anyone digging around here ?

209lh90.jpg
Well, I HAVE seen foreigners with trucks and equipment.

30ww307.jpg
Were they Nazis, do you think ?

209lh90.jpg
They had pale faces, like you, effendi.

20uy5vk.jpg


209lh90.jpg
Hmmm, this "X" is to the south and considerably to the east.

30ww307.jpg
Thanks for the information.


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

2060ydx.jpg

2v2titg.jpg



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

1p8axw.jpg


209lh90.jpg
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.

30ww307.jpg
Thanks for your help.


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

30vn52x.jpg

ziktur.jpg


What the hell ? Someone's shooting at us !

eu1zj9.jpg


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

33fao9g.jpg

2rdvud4.jpg


Always works.

nwc9w5.jpg


2ufu936.jpg
I've seen better landings.

30ww307.jpg
Him too. :smug: So, what do we do now ?

2ufu936.jpg
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.

1oq4qe.jpg



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

s3er2t.jpg



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

8wl7k5.jpg


30ww307.jpg
Wait, where are you going ?

8x8z9j.jpg

4gj0ix.jpg


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

33dwlyv.jpg

2r5uutj.jpg

96cih0.jpg


30ww307.jpg
Are you ok ?

35c3n9s.jpg
I think so...

30ww307.jpg
Good, I'll have you out in no time.

35c3n9s.jpg
Hurry !

ftbv4.jpg


35c3n9s.jpg
$*& !

4t96bc.jpg
Could you speak up ? I didn't catch that.

35c3n9s.jpg
I said $*&*# !

30ww307.jpg
Okay. Stay there, I'll go find some help.

zn6j2w.jpg


4t96bc.jpg
Just kidding :smug:

35c3n9s.jpg
:x


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

adg8bt.jpg



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.

2zr2n9w.jpg



What about the truck ?

5nrj8j.jpg



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

34rdufa.jpg



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.

2960s1y.jpg



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...

x21kx2.jpg



Robocop's primary functioning organ ?

2py4vvc.jpg



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

4t96bc.jpg
It feels like a gas tap.

Mmm. And what's that on the side ?

4t96bc.jpg
It feels like an on/off switch.

Great ! Let's push it.

30ww307.jpg
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 ?

2e2fplf.jpg


...or Robocop's primary functioning organ.

30ww307.jpg
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 :

1z4bck1.jpg



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 ?

2ain82c.jpg

2exu2xc.jpg



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

2z81e78.jpg


Ta Daaa !

141s9ic.jpg



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

19ta9s.jpg


4t96bc.jpg
I've seen THAT before.

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

30ww307.jpg
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.

2l9qwev.jpg


AHA !

16iytzk.jpg


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.

292qy3b.jpg


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.

3025t15.jpg



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

2nv5e34.jpg



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

34np69w.jpg

2lliy2t.jpg


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

30ww307.jpg
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 :

2rzfhwn.jpg


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.

1ghn40.jpg



Fits like a charm !

2wqzt49.jpg



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" ?

igdcfm.jpg



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

20ayuly.jpg


30ww307.jpg
Sophia ?

Yep.

bfpfp.jpg


2ufu936.jpg
I thought you were going to leave me in there !

4t96bc.jpg
Believe me, I was tempted.

33bo7l3.jpg
Lucky you didn't, here's something we may need !

30ww307.jpg
A distributor cap !

2ufu936.jpg
It fell on my head when I sank into the hole. And that's not all, look !

30ww307.jpg
What is it ?

2ufu936.jpg
It's an amber fish on a string.

30ww307.jpg
I can see that. What does it do ?

33bo7l3.jpg
How should I know ? I suppose you've come up with something more interesting ?

30ww307.jpg
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.

2ufu936.jpg
That sounds possible. Let's go !


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

24fb8zs.jpg


2ufu936.jpg
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...

2n0su45.jpg


Fuck yeah ! Let's grab it.

30ww307.jpg
I better turn the generator off first.

kdah3q.jpg


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...

2urbbqb.jpg

2m2uoua.jpg


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


2wdn5lg.jpg
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...

2rokgtz.jpg

6ol5r4.jpg




Crete, here we come.

I assume we're talking Indiana Jones and the Fountain of Youth? The demo was pretty promising, but that was back in 2006

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.

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

biqdw.jpg


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.








EDUCATION FOR THE IGNORANT POPAMOLERS said:
Here we are in the ceremonial and political center of the Minoan civilization, that flourished in the Island Of Crete during the Bronze age, for about 15 centuries. It's considered to be the first advanced civilization in Europe.

2dmduma.jpg


Its demise is believed to have come from a massive tsunami, generated by a volcanic eruption from the island of Thera, that devastated the coastal areas of Crete. Not unlike the Atlantis legends we've heard, eh ?

539t06.jpg


^ They had a thing for bulls and extreme sports.



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

14v7ok5.jpg


2ufu936.jpg
I don't know, but we should be careful. Something tells me they are not far away.

30ww307.jpg
Let's look around.


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

2it7o9.jpg


Then let's see if the sunstone fits.

11rdu8i.jpg


Yep.

2m6ltsg.jpg


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

9hhqvp.jpg


Nope.

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

2s0y3c1.jpg


33bo7l3.jpg
Hang on a minute... Nur-Ab-Sal speaks !

2nhmjco.jpg


33bo7l3.jpg
He bids us to find the underworld passage to his ancestral home !

4t96bc.jpg
How do you do it ? Radio ? Signals from the fillings in your teeth ?

2ufu936.jpg
Still the wiseguy. You'll learn.


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

23sc6ls.jpg



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...

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.

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

There's a statue here !

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

It's an ancient diagram of some kind.

There's a bull's head, horns and tail.

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.

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.

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

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...

And the Bull's head with the left horn.

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

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

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

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.

What was it that Plato said ?

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

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

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.
