Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis - Manual
Playing The Game:
As the story opens, Indy is searching Barnett College for a mysterious
statue. At this stage, as Indy proceeds from room to room. You can
examine an object more closely and in some cases, make use of it
simply by clicking on them. Try clicking on the gargoyle in the fore-
After you have found the statue,Indy will return to his office,Where
the next part of the story will unfold in a "CUT SCENE". Cut scenes
are short animated sequences like scenes from a movie which can
provide clues and information. They are also used to show special
animated sequences, as when an unsuspecting jungle rodent helps
Indy get rid of a snake. When you are viewing a cut-scene, your cursor
disappears and for the moment you don't control the events.
You begin directing Indy's actions as he arrives in New York City.
The displays are divided into the following sections:-
The Action Screen:
Is the largest part of the display. This is where
the animated action takes place. Dialogue spoken by the characters
also appears here.
The Sentence Line
Is directly below the Action Screen. You use this
line to construct sentances that tell Indy what to do. A consists of
a VERB (action word) and one or two NOUNS (objects).Some examples
of sentances you you might construct on the sentance line are
"Use whip with statue" or "Use arrowhead with rag". Connecting
words like "ON" or "WITH" will automatically be inserted by the program.

Are listed in the lower left side of the display. To select
a verb,position the cursor over the word and push LEFT MOUSE BUTTON/ENTER
or JOYSTICK FIRE BUTTON. The game has a `quick-verb' feature that high-
lights an appropiate verb when the cursor touches an interesting or
useful object on the screen. For example, when Indy is near a door will
high-light the verb OPEN. Pressing the right mouse button ,will use the
quick-verb with the object, which in this case opens the door.DON~T
worry: this feature won`t give away solutions to any of the puzzles.
keep in mind though a verb is high-lighted, It may not be the only way
to use an object, try the other verbs as well!

placing the cursor over an object in the Action Screen. Many objects
in the environment, and all the usable objects in the game, Have names
if an object has a name, it will appear on the Sentance Line when you
position the cursor over it . If no name appears for an object on the
screen,you can be sure that it has no sagnificance other than as a part
of a back ground , You may also select nouns by clicking on them
in the Inventory.
The Inventory Icons:
Are located to the right of the verbs. At the beginning
of the game Indy`s inventory is limited to what ever he has retained from
the first cut-scene. When he picks up or is given an object to use during
the game play,an icon for that object is added to the inventory. There is
NO limit to the number of objects Indy can carry.When there are more than ten
objects in the inventory, Arrows appear to the left of the icons.

Open the theatre's back door. See if you can talk your way past the
doorman without getting into a fist-fight. Explore the alley a bit
further...maybe there`s another way to get to the theatre.
At a certain point in the game, you will find yourself back in
Indy's office, with a decision to be made: Should you persuade Sophia
to continue with Indy on the search? Do you want to proceed on your
own, using your intellect to overcome the obstacles in your way?
or would you rather spice up your quest with a little more action??
There are 3 ways to procced from this point. The choice you make will
influence the course of the story. While the team,wits and fists paths
cross one another at times, many of the puzzles and their solutions-as
well as the places which you can visit - will be different. The path's
re-converge when you reach ATLANTIS..
We suggest you reserve a Save Game slot for the decision(see game controls)
That way, once you've successfully completed the path of your choice, You
can return to the point of decision to sample a differnt path..

amusing statement. Keep in mind that just as in real-life some of
Iny`s wisecracks can lead to trouble. Fortunately in Indiana Jones
And The Fate Of Atlantis, you can save a game before surrendering to
Remember, picking a fight is dangerous. Losing can lead to the game's
abrupt end, If you choose the action path, you will find it necessary
to fight your way to several situations.

fight.keep in mind that you dont get IQ points for using this option.
Notice the displays for health and punch-power
Both for Indy and,below that for his opponent. If either combatant
is hit,His health decreases, When health drop`s to a dangerous level
the display will turn yellow, When the drop in health becomes critical

he will be knocked on Conscious. If Indy rests beetween fights,he will
HEAL and his Health Power will return to normal.
The punch power display shows how powerful Indy`s swing will be. Each time
Indy tries to hit,his Punch Power takes a few moments to build back up
to it's maximum ,If Indy swings again to quickly, he will not hit a maximimum
power. Of course it may be important to keep his enemy off balance than
to hit for maximum effect. Indy can punch high,middle or low to try to
get past his opponents defenses. Each enemy has his own individual
strengths and weaknesses.
To punch your opponent,position the cursor on him and push either Mouse Button
(you can switch to keyboard/joystick.)
Indy also has some defensive moves. His opponents often set their fists a
moment before they try to punch.If you watch for his and have Indy block
at the positioning the cursor on Indy(Either high/middle/low)and clicking
you can successfully block the punch. Also Indy step back to increase the
distance between Him and the opponent. This can be used to buy a little time
for Indy to recover some of his punch-power. If you dont like the way the
fight is going .you can make your Escape by repeatedly backing Indy away
from his opponent.
