Indiana Jones Type Game

Post by IndyB007 » Sun Dec 09, 2007 9:43 pm

Hi there.

When I was the book store without any cash, I noticed an issue of Retro Gamer with a Donkey Kong cover. Naturally I picked it up and flipped through the pages, reading a few small articles and making a mental note to return to the store and buy the magazine. Fast forward two weeks and I had forgotten about the magazine and returned to four different stores and could not find that magazine anywhere.

What I do remember was a small article on a home-brew title that looked something like an Indiana Jones type of game towards the back of the magazine, but for the life of me, I cannot remember the name of the game.

Could some kind soul fill me in on this game so I can download and enjoy it?

We gave it a 9 at Oldschool Gaming and i remember that it grabbed a lot of people in the C64 scene who don't normally play games, there were a couple of weeks where Joe Gunn was a major topic of conversation on IRC and it was quite hard to avoid the spoilers! =-)

Why, thank you very much! I preferred my other one - but it was too many kb for this forum :roll:
