Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade

Lucasfilm Games, 1989

This title was released shortly after the first Indiana Jones film hit the silver screen. And as hard as it is to believe, this game is just as fun to play, as the movie is to watch. The puzzles range from simple to very challenging and the game has several alternate endings. The story goes by exactly as in the movie. You are set to find your missing father, who's been mysteriously kidnapped by Nazis while on a quest to find the Holy Grail.

The game uses the same engine as LucasFilm earlier games decorated with dated enhanced graphics and sound that defines the earlier computer gaming era. While there were some good action sequences, some clever puzzles can be solved in many ways. So, if you were looking for a game with familiar characters than this would be a good one to try.
