Added DiffLines:

* ActorAllusion: Well, to Creator/HarrisonFord, anyway:
** In Indy's office there is a [[Franchise/StarWars thousand-year-old falcon]], it means a lot to him.
** In one line of dialogue, Indy introduces himself as "[=Robert McFalfa=]", a nod to the Bob Falfa character played by Ford in ''Film/AmericanGraffiti''.


* DidWeJustHaveTeaWithCthulu: As an alternative to the above, if Indy is carrying a copy of Mein Kampf he can get Hitler to give him an autograph.

Added DiffLines:

* ActionizedAdaptation: Inverted, as the game removes a number of action sequences that (admittedly) would've been hard to pull off in a PointAndClick game.


** Marcus would ask Indy to translate some symbols for him, which would need to be looked up in the manual. Failing to do so would let the game continue as normal - until a crucial point where Indy, at Donovan's place, would fail to translate a tablet concerning the Holy Grail (Indy mistakenly translates it as "Holy Grain"), prompting Donovan to say "Seems you're just an illegitimate copy of the man I thought you were." This protection was removed in later versions.

** Even if Indy is disguised as a servant or an officer, the Nazis, not recognizing him, are still suspicious, requiring Indy to talk his way past them. Also, if they see him in another outfit later, they'll realize he's an impostor and turn hostile.



** In some versions Indiana can be [[https://www.gamefaqs.com/pc/564917-indiana-jones-and-the-last-crusade/faqs/52953 banned]] from [[http://www.supercheats.com/pc/walkthroughs/indianajonesandthelastcrusade-walkthrough02.txt the library]].

* PlotCouponThatDoesSomething: Henry's Diary of the Grail, with vital information for the quest. Even if you have its exact random knowledge from a savegame, the game won't let progress in Venice unless you have it in your inventary (Having Henry's package is enough, Indy doesn't actually need to open it).

* PolishedPort: Although the game is best remembered for running through the Apple, Amiga, and MS-DOS compatible systems, the FM-Towns version is considered the better version through the use of a simpler interface and Redbook Audio based on the film score. The game is still in English despite originally being released for Japanese consumption.
