Lego Indiana Jones is a 2008 video game based on the first three films.It was developed by Traveller's Tales and LucasArts .The game will feature the same drop in/out mode from the previous game.New abilities such as digging and academic access have been introduced, and characters can pick up objects,e.g. bottles,guns and chairs and use them to take out enemies or solve puzzles.A slight preview of the game is shown in Lego Star Wars: The Complete Saga because Indiana Jones is an unlockable character in the game

Secrets Hidden throughout the game are treasure chests. There are 10 chests in each level and if the player collects them all, an unlocked secret will be waiting for them at Barnett College. Some levels contain buried bonuses to help find the missing treasure chest. There is also a red package that first has to be found, then picked up and inserted in a red post slot.

There is an artifact room for all the treasure chests the player has collected, with a special prize for players who have collected all postboxes.

Han Solo is a special unlockable character. Players can unlock him by finding Luke Skywalker, Princess Leia, Chewbacca, R2-D2, and C-3PO throughout the levels.

C-3PO can be found on the first level of Raiders after you get the golden idol. Get across the outer moving platforms until you see a silver door. Blow it up and go inside.

Luke Skywalker can be found on the second level of Raiders. Once you get past the ice bridges near the end jump down and Luke will be behind some ice. Use Willie or exploding things to get him out.

Development The developers have chosen to have Nazis and any reference to them removed from the game, have being described by an "anonymous genocidal, ist, trenchcoat-wearing master-race".

It was initially reported that the game would allow up to four players in co-operative mode,[1] but this later turned out to be a miscommunication. While four characters may be visible on the screen, only two can be controlled by players.

Before, Indy had Han Solo's Holster and had his pistol with him. When gameplay previews came, he had no holster and didn't have a belt, some had him with a pistol. When the game came out Indy had a holster, but no pistol. Indy's punching, along with his whip is now one of his main weapons. (Although he has it in some cutscenes)

Gameplay The game follows the storylines from the original Indiana Jones films: Raiders of the Lost Ark, Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom, and Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade. Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull is not included in the game. Notable scenes have been recreated from the, such as the iconic boulder escape and the fight on the rope bridge, as well as Walter Donovan choosing the wrong Holy Grail.

Like Lego Star Wars, the objective of the levels is to get to the end, collecting Lego Studs (Treasure) to earn the True Adventurer title along the way. Other goals of the levels is to find 10 Treasure Chests and a Red Parcel in each one. Free Play mode allows players to change characters during the level, and roam around trying to find the secret items. Barnett College serves as the hub for all the missions.

Each character featured in the game has his/her own unique ability, such as Satipo being able to dig things from the ground whereas other characters cannot, and female characters like Elsa Schneider and Marion Ravenwood being able to double-jump unlike male characters. As with Lego Star Wars II, Lego Indiana Jones allows players to customize characters.

A new feature not seen in the Lego Star Wars series allows the player to interact with objects in their environment (e.g., bottles, swords and guns). Similarly to Lego Star Wars II: The Original Trilogy, players can build and ride vehicles whenever they want.

The creators of this game have said that it will focus on phobias. For instance, if Indiana Jones sees a snake, he will be stunned until the snake is gone.

Doing tasks in the game unlocks Achievements in the X-Box360 version.
