Indiana Jones in Revenge of the Ancients is a text adventure game that is not based on any of the films; it is rather a whole new adventure, which in terms of the franchise's storyline, takes place in 1936. As in other text adventures, the player must type the desired action when prompted, in order to advance the storyline.

The storyline involves the eponymous character traveling to the Mexican jungle and explore the Tepotzteco Pyramid, with the purpose of getting the Mazatec Power Key before the Nazi forces, under the command of Plebinheim, get to it first.


In 2008, IGN ranked the game at number nine on its list of "Top 10 Indiana Jones Games", writing, "While not as clever as the Zork series, Revenge of the Ancients tells a good yarn that fits nicely in the Indy oeuvre."[1]
