FAQ/Lists
---------
Indiana Jones and his desktop adventures 
randomly generates quests every time you 
play it.  Pretty much the only thing that 
stays constant every time is the town.


Town layout:
The building above your starting point is 
Marcus Brody's headquarters.  The building 
to the left of that is the bar.  Below the 
bar is Jose's market.  A little to the south 
east of Jose's is Indy's temporary home.


Indy's health meter is divided into four colors:
Green  ----- When the meter is all green, Indy is at 100%.
Yellow ----- Indy might want to heal soon.
Red    ----- Indy's health is dangerously low.
Black  ----- When the meter is all black, the game ends.


Indy has multiple weapons at his disposal:
Bow         ----- Found randomly
Luger       ----- Found randomly
Machete     ----- Found randomly
Spear       ----- Found randomly
Whip        ----- Always at Indy's house
Aztec Sword ----- Quest related

Bow         ----- 2
Luger       ----- 4
Machete     ----- 1

Whip        ----- 3
Aztec Sword ----- 3

General Hints and Tips
----------------------
When you walk into Marcus Brody's house, 
go to the refrigerator in the left room.
Push up against the fridge to get a First 
Aid Kit.


Jose will only give you Yerba Buena if your 
life meter has dropped significantly.
(Also, he will not give you any if you already 
have some in your inventory.)


If you talk to Gabriela, the barmaid, 
sometimes she will give you bananas or 
tequila.  Both are random occurrances.  
(Bananas heal you and tequila hurts you.)


Moving blocks, stools, rocks, boulders, and 
other things around often yields useful items.


The map is almost always within one screen of the town.


Teleporters can make traveling (or travelling) in larger
maps more manageable.  Teleporters look like + signs on
Indy's map.
