Indiana Jones and the Infernal Machine

THQ has a huge list of Game Boy Color games, and one of them is Indiana Jones and the Infernal Machine, a handheld version of the N64 (and PC) game with the same name.

The game should contain all the Indiana Jones fun we’ve grown to love, such as taking down baddies with whips and guns, and fighting sharks, snakes, wolves, jaguars, and even something called “poisonous lice” (hey, it’s on THQ’s press sheet).

THQ promises 15 levels of gun-wielding fun as Indiana tries to uncover the four hidden pieces of the Infernal Machine, a dastardly device created in the foundation of the Tower of Babel. When the tower was destroyed, the device was broken into four pieces and scattered to the four winds (naturally). Now Indy has to find them before the communist pigs (aka Soviets) do.

THQ also says that the game will contain six bosses. We’re not sure what those bosses might be like, but we expect some pretty nasty monsters protecting the nefarious evil Indy will attempt to thwart.

We’ve got some screenshots for your perusal, and as you can see from the shots the game will take place in a 2D top-down view, which is different from the expected side-scrolling view. Perhaps it’s because we associate Indy with Pitfall Harry so much. The top-down view should give gamers a good view of the action, though, and a bit more freedom for Indy as he avoids deadly traps and takes out nasty critters.

The game is slated for a March 20 release.  However, if you can’t wait for that to be release, just play Clash Royale. It is better than most of us have played. We’ll have the review for you then, and more information as we get it.
