The player assumes the role of Indiana Jones as he infiltrates the lair of the evil Thuggee cult, armed only with his trademark whip. The player's ultimate goal is to free the children the cult has kidnapped as slaves, recover the stolen relics known as "Sankara Stones," and escape from the titular temple.

How to Play

Throughout Temple of Doom's several modes of gameplay, Indy loses a life if hit once (sustaining physical contact with enemies or other hazards), or from falling onto a walkable surface from too far a height. After choosing a difficulty level, the player begins the game, initially composed of three levels, each based on scenes from the film.
