15. Indiana Jones And His Desktop Adventures
Like the similarly themed Yoda Stories that released during the mid 90's, Indiana Jones and his Desktop Adventures was a desktop windowed experience by LucasArts that stripped things back to a simple top-down adventure, complete with colourful retro graphics. Unfortunately, just like Yoda Stories, it's not all that good.
The point of these desktop jaunts was to provide a quick and easy game that anyone could play, sort of like Minesweeper but with bad guys and guns, if that makes any sense. You'd control Indy through a mix of both keyboard and mouse, collecting various items to solve puzzles whilst shooting anyone that gets in the way.
To be fair, there's a little of ingenuity at play here, namely the ability to choose the size of the game upon starting it up which decided the length of each randomly generated adventure, something a lot of modern indie titles (another pun intended) use to much greater effect today. Having said that, Minesweeper is a much more effective use of wasting your time.
