spent some time with Traveller's Tales' upcoming Lego Indiana Jones: The Original Adventures
and survived a giant boulder to reveal various details about the game chronicling Indy's first three adventures. If you've played any of the Lego Star Wars
games then you're already familiar with the set-up of this title. Barnett College serves as the hub (like Mos Eisley cantina in Star Wars
) allowing players to access the 18 levels of the game. There are other Star Wars
standards like the "Free Play" mode, but the producers say that Lego Indy will be more "adventure style" than Star Wars' fighting emphasis.
As for game mechanics, the whip on Wii
will function similar to the lightsaber waggle and not have "1:1 remote-to-whip synchronized control." Though the Nazis have been removed from the game, the producers say the movie plots will stay intact. They also say despite puzzles being designed for two players, the console versions will support up to four players simultaneous. Lego Indiana Jones
should be ready for discovery June 3.
