Indiana Jones meets Choose Your Own Adventure
If you've ever wanted to be Indiana Jones in an interactive fiction book, this game is for you. Three playthroughs and I've been crushed by a falling tower, escaped a pit of snakes (Why'd it have to be snakes?) and poisoned by a puzzle box. The writing is high quality and fun. Can't wait to get further into the story next time.
Fun, like a Choose you own Adventure book with achievements!
Really cool, extremely fun storyline with multiple paths you can take on your way to the treasure vault. Took me a few tries, but the "ultimate" and ending was pretty awesome and well worth the wait! Very well done.
