Indiana Jones and The Temple of Poo (Sorry, Doom)

Hi all, yes It's Friday again and that means It's another "Shit Game Time" review and this time I've been asked to play and shit-rate Indiana Jones and The Temple of Doom on our beloved Amiga by Youtuber Scpuzy, what can I say but YUK!

There was a port of ToD for Amiga??? Thought was only for Atari ST
And reminds me the speccy version - but that IMO was better

(by the way then they ask me why i mostly hate flutes on amiga songs, because those were DARN EVERYWHERE)

I happen to like this game. It’s definitely weak in the graphics department, but the sound/music on the Amiga version is darn good. Fate of Atlantis is, of course, the definitive Indy game on the Amiga, but this one’s alright for a quick session.

Oh dear, you really need to expand your Amiga "Good Games I've Played" library

1. The movie is great, up there with the other two.
2. You need to fix your topic title.

Atari ST port runs smoother than this. Amiga version got just slightly better music...

Yeah I tried when I posted it but it won't let me re-edit the title, only the main text, do you know how?

Hey, I know it’s not an all-time classic, but it renders the main theme from the movie, in my opinion, very faithfully (especially compared to other licensed film games).

Not trying to defend this game as an overlooked gem. But I will argue that it’s... alright... and not poo.

Only mods can do it as far as I know.

In my memory I was very fond of at least one version of this game, I think the C64 one. Except for the cart sections.

I remember asking myself why am I even bothering trying this...

I should probably try all different versions on MiSTer.

From what I can find, those systems had it released...
  • Amiga
  • Amstard CPC
  • Apple II (that got to be quite interesting )
  • Arcade
  • Atari ST
  • C64
  • DOS
  • MSX
  • NES
  • ZX Spectrum

There got to be one that is at least playable apart from Arcades.

I assumed the typo was deliberate because Temple of Doom is set in India. I thought you were trying to suggest Indy was getting down with the culture... or summink.

Wasn't the movie banned in India when it was released?

Not sure about video games.

Yes, the Indian government didn't appreciate the voodoo elements/derogatory stereotyping etc. so blocked the production from filming in their country (causing the crew to relocate to Sri Lanka) and then banned the movie upon release. I think the censorship order still stands to this day.
