Was it possible to win this game?
10 March 2009 | by See all my reviews

This game brought about many nightmares and hours of play as a child trying desperately to win what I still have no clue on how to win. I hear some people say they won it and you basically see the scene right at the beginning in reverse. You are basically Indy, you pick up the whip right at the beginning and you can choose to fight wave after wave of snakes with said whip or you can go to the market and maybe by a grenade or parachute or something. You can even find a revolver in a garbage can. You can use said grenade to blow a hole in the screen with the snakes and go through a level with no dangers and some sort of clock to a room that is apparently cliffs, a strange marsh with the strangest looking spider ever, to a room where you get trapped in boxes. You have a treasure room beyond the room with the boxes. You have a strange land below the cliffs where a man in black roams, the black market, a strange area with a mound of dirt that just takes you back to the cliffs, the map room that shows nothing even when you have the staff of ra, the black market which has more snakes and how any of this ties in together is beyond me.
