Apple Games Features LEGO Indiana Jones
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Apple Games has entered the dangerous world of archaeology with an examination of LEGO Indiana Jones: The Original Adventures. The game allows players to experience the action adventure of the popular movies in a world crafted from LEGO bricks. Apple's feature includes an overview of the game's features, comments from LEGO Indy producer Nick Ricks, a history of Indy's video game incarnations, and a list of tips, tricks, and cheats for the game.

Ricks also notes that the game builds on his company’s previous digital LEGO experience by enhancing the ways in which you manipulate the environment through the game’s 83 characters. “In LEGO Star Wars II, all characters could build things from piles of LEGO,” he explains. “With this in mind, we introduced the concept of moving LEGO objects around so they can be combined and rebuilt in lots of interesting ways. This in turn allowed us to introduce different puzzles and obstacles for players to overcome.” In addition, LEGO characters can now build and ride in vehicles, and some of them have the ability to fix broken machines.

Ricks adds: “We’ve also assigned the abilities previously associated with characters — [such as Jedi Knights’ ability to use the Force on objects in LEGO Star Wars I and II] — to the tools they carry. For example, if Indy finds an excavation site, he knows he needs to find a shovel, or use Sallah, who comes with the appropriate tool. Characters also no longer need to be in close proximity with each other for you to swap between them, which allowed us to design traps and encounters with greater flexibility.”
