Indiana Jones and The Fate of Atlantis: The Action Game
DOS - 1992
Description of Indiana Jones and The Fate of Atlantis: The Action Game
After letting Tiertex develop a disappointing action game based on its The Last Crusade movie license, LucasArts wisely decided to develop the action game based on the original Fate of Atlantis adventure game on its own. The result is a fun, but VERY difficult isometric action game starring everyone's favourite archaeologist.
Being an action title, the game starts off where Indy is about to have an excuse to use his trusty whip: in Monte Carlo, after he recruited headstrong former student Sophie to his aid and determined the location of ancient discs needed to open the door to the lost city of Atlantis. Most action takes place in isometric view, although there are some variations along the way to keep up interest. There are even some adventure-game elements, such as Indy's inventory which you can fill with various objects to use (i.e. money to buy things). They are mostly easy though, and are there only to relieve the tension from knuckle-blistering action.
Overall, this is a much better Indy action title than The Last Crusade, although the extremely tough difficulty level may discourage action newbies, and the color scheme is a bit too sepia-influenced for my taste. It's not the best action game your money can buy, but it's still pretty good.

Unlike previous Indiana Jones licensed games, there is no accompanied Hollywood movie tied to the Fate of Atlantis story. If you want to understand the story/scenario better, I recommend to check out the point-N-click adventure game of the same name, which is the definitive take. In fact, you rather should be playing that one instead of this awkward casino crap. It even has more action than this. one promises.
Graphics modes and sound devices are auto-detected, it seems to take EGA, VGA/MCGA, Tandy(?) modes.

The game works fine, except I need a code for the "code wheel" and I don't know how to type it in.

The game runs very well on DOSBox 0.74 including Sound and FX.
