    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
    
    
    Weapon speed from 1 to 4 (1 being the fastest):
    Bow         ----- 2
    Luger       ----- 4
    Machete     ----- 1
    Spear       ----- 1.5
    Whip        ----- 3
    Aztec Sword ----- 3
    
    
    Healing items:
    Bananas       ----- Heals 1/4 of a color of health

    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.
