    001-General Information
    -----------------------------------------------------------
    
    This is a walkthrough for the Nintendo Entertainment System
    (NES) game called Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade.  There
    are two such games; this guide is for the one made by Taito.
    You can e-mail me about this guide at
    ilovecartoonssomuch@yahoo.com, but make the subject blank
    if you do.  If you want to use this guide for something,
    you should ask first.
    
    002-Story
    -----------------------------------------------------------
    
    When Indiana Jones was a kid, his father never paid attention
    to him.  His dad was too busy working on trying to find the
    Holy Grail, which is the cup that Jesus drank from the night
    before he died.  It supposedly has special powers, including
    healing people and allowing someone to live forever.
    
    Years later, Indiana Jones became an archeologist.  He has
    had a lot of adventures, including finding the Arc of the
    Covenant (you can learn more about that by watching "Raiders
    of the Lost Arc", which has a disappointing ending).
    
    One thing to note: this takes place during the World War
    Two era.  One more thing to note: Indiana Jones hates Nazis.
    The Nazis, of course, want the Holy Grail just as much as
    Indiana's father does.
    
    003-Characters
    -----------------------------------------------------------
    
    Indiana Jones: The whip-carrying, Nazi-killing, lady-catching,
    suave hero of this game.
    
    Indiana Jones Senior: Indiana Jones' father, played by Sean
    Connery.  (Indiana is played by Harrison Ford).  Indiana's
    father calls him Junior instead of by his real name.  He's
    also obsessed with finding the Holy Grail.
    
    Marcus: Indiana Jones' long time friend who has helped him
    throughout all of his adventures.  Little does Indiana know
    that Marcus actually works for the Nazis (which isn't
    covered in this game).
    
    Dr. Schneider: A lady that Indiana meets in Venice.  There
    may be some romance between the two of them, but she only
    has a cameo in the game and is therefore not that important.
    
    Sallah: I don't know who he is.  Apparently he's a good guy.
    
    Knight: He protects the Grail from evil.
    
    004-Walkthrough
    -----------------------------------------------------------
    
    Indiana Jones, "Indy", is finally getting a moment to sit
    and relax after a hard day of being an archeologist.  But
    strangely, he's gotten a letter from Venice.  It's his dad's
    grail diary!
    
    Indy's dad has been searching for the Holy Grail for his
    whole life.  The diary contains all of the information that
    Indy's dad has on the Grail.  Why is he sending it to Indy?
    Sounds like something fishy is going on...
    
    Indy also has a telegram from Marcus, his good friend.
    Marcus has located the Cross of Coronado on a ship.  Indy's
    been searching for it his whole life...
    
    What should Indy do?  Should he see what's up with his dad,
    or should he see what's up with the Cross of Coronado?  If
    you pick one, you can pick the other later (and it'll be
    harder).  I recommend going after the Grail first, as it's
    hard enough already, and having to do it while it's harder
    is a pain in the butt.
    
    004a-Venice, Italy
    -----------------------------------------------------------
    
    Boy, this is tough.  You have to move the blank square
    around until you've solved the puzzle.  You have to do it
    fast, because time is running out.  Here's where you should
    move the black square:
    
    4 left, 1 up, 1 right, 3 down, 1 left, 1 up, 1 right, 1 up,
    1 left, 3 down, 1 right, 2 up, 1 left, 2 down, 1 right, 3
    up, 1 left, 2 down, 1 right, 1 up, 3 right, 1 up, 2 left,
    2 down, 2 right.  Press select to leave once you've done
    this.
    
    Yay, now Indy's got a picture of the Holy Grail!  This could
    come in handy...
    
    Indy gets a message from Sallah.  His dad is being held
    captive, and Marcus has disappeared.  Now Indy's got to
    save his father, find Marcus, and get the cross.  If we don't
    get the cross now, it will be impossible to get it later,
    so let's get it now.
    
    004b-Cross of Coronado
    -----------------------------------------------------------
    
    Press Select to take out your whip.  Press B to use the
    whip.  Get used to that.  Look at the top of screen.  There's
    a health meter, and a life meter (One grail = one life).
    Walk off to the left (fall off the boat).
    
    A bad guy will run in from the left.  When he runs towards
    you, hit him in the head with the whip.  However, if you
    miss, you'll have to put away your whip and punch/kick him
    to death.  This doesn't really work, so you really need to
    kill them with the whip.
    
    More people come in on Indy; kill them as well.
    
    Now, this boat has a lot of doors on it.  Enemies will
    come out of each door.  You need to kill 30 people to get
    the Cross of Coronado.  Always be ready for enemies.
    
    Once 30 are dead, get to the upper left part of the ship.
    Kill the person who comes out from there (he's colored
    differently than the other people you fought before.  Kill
    him for the cross.  Indy jumps the boat.
    
    Note that if you failed this part here, you have to restart
    the game.
    
    Indy gets a telegraph from Sallah.  We now know the location
    of the Holy Grail.  But wait, didn't you forget about Indy's
    dad?  Go save him next.
    
    004c-Brunwald Castle
    -----------------------------------------------------------
    
    This place is a maze.  Sheesh, this is really hard to do.
    However, with this guide, you won't have to go through all
    of the agony of trying to find Indy's dad.  Look out for
    Nazis all throughout this level.  Kill them like you did
    in Coronado.
    
    Go left and enter the first door you come to (use up to do
    this).  Go up the door there, and up the stairs.  Go all
    the way left and go up the second to last staircase.
    
    Go through the door here and then go right.  Jump over the
    ramp by pressing A and B at the same time (the poor controls
    make it hard).  Then go all the way right in this room.
    It takes a while.  Once you're there, go down some steps.
    Go down the stairs and enter the door.  Whip the light on
    the wall by pressing B and up.  The wall opens up; go
    through it.
    
    Stand in front of the chair.  Press down; then go through
    the fireplace.  You save Indy's father, who still calls
    him Junior.
    
    Once you're done, it's time to go get Marcus.  Can't be
    that hard, right?
    
    004d-Saving Marcus
    -----------------------------------------------------------
    
    Great, this is hard.  You have to fight about ten Nazis and
    kill them.  The problem?  You're fighting on a tank, so you
    can fall off and die easily.  Same fighting rules as in
    Coronado.  Also, you have to do it before the tank falls off
    the big cliff.
    
    This is pretty hard to do.  Once you've killed a lot of bad
    guys, Marcus (in blue) jumps out.  If you can't do it, the
    Nazis steal your dad's diary AND you have to try to save
    Marcus again.  You can go to Berlin to get the diary back,
    but you don't need to (instructions are included in here).
    
    Good luck.
    
    004e-Getting to the Grail
    -----------------------------------------------------------
    
    Now there's nowhere to go but to the Holy Grail now.
    
    You have to walk in the name of the Lord here, which was
    Jehovah when the Holy Grail was lost.  You can only step
    on plates with the letters of Jehovah on them.  Indy's candle
    burns low while this happens, so move fast.
    
    Go three up, two right, five up, two left, one up, seven
    left, five up, four right, and up as far as you can go.
    
    If you played this game the way it was supposed to be played
    (without using a guide), you'll know that you passed an
    obstacle by following this directions.  But I digress.
    
    004f-Finding the Grail
    -----------------------------------------------------------
    
    You're in the inner sanctum of the Holy Grail now.  One of
    the knights that protects the Grail (he drank from the
    Grail, so he lives forever) is there.  He has a variety of
    cups, and you can only choose one.  Can you choose which
    one is the Grail?  How?
    
    Wait!  You sketched the Grail in Venice!  Use the sketch to
    figure out which one is the Grail.  And in case that doesn't
    help you, the Grail is eighth from the left (on the top row).
    You choose wisely.  Now you get to see the ending!
