Classic of the week: Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis
March 14, 2011
One of the best adventure games of all time is without a doubt Lucas Arts’ Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis.
Lucas Arts has done a lot of great adventure games in the 80s and 90s. And I could also have choose Zak McKracken, Maniac Mansion, Day of the Tentacle or Monkey Island as classic game of the week.
I’ve chosen Indy 4, because I think it was the first adventure game that let the player decide to play one of three different plots each with unique cutscenes, puzzles and locations. The story was incredible, too. I asked myself very often, why they didn’t made a movie out of it. And it had a lot of very funny scenes.
I really hope that after the Special Editions of Monkey Island (which I really LOVE) that more Lucas Arts classic adventures will come in a new version to desktop PC’s and mobile phones.
