Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade: The Action Game was released in 1989 by Lucasfilm Games, based on the film of the same name. The game appeared on a number of home computers and game consoles at the time such as ZX Spectrum, Amstrad CPC, Commodore 64, Atari ST, Amiga, IBM PC, Master System, Mega Drive/Genesis and Game Gear.
There are also two completely different games for the Nintendo Entertainment System and Game Boy, both titled Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, one released by Taito and the other by Ubisoft, with no subtitle to differentiate the two versions.
As in the movie, the player's quest is to find the Holy Grail. En route, the player must find the Cross of Coronado, the Knight of the First Crusade's Shield and your fathers Grail Diary.
Computer Gaming World gave the Taito's version a negative review and said it was "just another search and recover game" with little to do with Indiana Jones. The review praised the graphics and sound, but found the fight sequences both too easy and too short, since all enemies could be defeated in one hit and turned their backs shortly after attacking the player. Compute! liked the Commodore 64 version, approving of the graphics and describing gameplay as "quite addicting", but criticizing lack of savegame and replay value.
