Default Freeware PC Adventure Game With Indiana Jones Look-A-Like

There was a game I remember playing on my computer maybe 5 years ago? I would love to play it again, but I can't for the life of me remember what it's called. I'm hoping someone will recognise it from my description.

- As the title says, it was a freeware PC game. Point & Click adventure.
- The main character (you) looked just like Indiana Jones, although it wasn't an Indy Jones game.
- It was very colourful
- I'm sure the Indy Jones\main character had a voice (not just text).
- One of the puzzles involved your neighbour. He was sitting calmly in his garden, admiring his flowers. You had to make him think that a common caterpiller on his flowers was actually a very rare caterpiller.
- Another puzzle involved you having to find 9 stone squares, which you could then place into a mountain side. But you had to turn the squares the right way, so they formed a stone face. Then a secret door in the mountain would open up.


Does anyone recognise this game?

Hmm, I know only one free Indiana-like game... Udoiana Raunes it is.

Well, technically it's 3 games.

It's not Udoiana Raunes.

The characterlooks like Indy Jones, but the gameplay has nothing to do with Indy Jones.

Thanks for trying though

Err... So you need gameplay like Indiana Jones, or, just opposite, you need no Indiana in it? %)

Anyway, check also Escape from Delirium, it seems free too.

No, the game itself has nothing to do with Indy Jones. It's just the character that looks like him. Or an Indy Jones-Wannabe, if you like. :LOL:

Unfortunately it's not Escape From Delirium either

No, graphics in Amazon Queen are a lot better.

Any chance it was "Treasure Adventure Game"? It's free on GOG.

Thanks for the suggestion, but that's not the right game.
My game is more of a point & click adventure game.

Check the posts here:

http://www.dosgames.com/forum/about18481-0-asc-0.html

The posters came up with a lot of good suguestions... I do remember something similer to what your after but I've really got no idea because I was like 4-8 years old at the time.

I hope some of the posts help you and I take no credit for this post if it does help you since others in the other post helped.
