Maze Craze - Volume 2, Number 7, Maze 7:

Raiders of the Lost Ark

Raiders of the Lost Ark
  • Concept: Raiders of the Lost Ark © 1981 Paramount Pictures
  • Directed by Steven Spielberg
  • Screenplay by Lawrence Kasdan
  • Story by George Lucas and Philip Kaufman
  • Artist: Dana, aka Dad

The original 1981 Indiana Jones action-adventure film from Steven Spielberg and George Lucas only received one direct video game adaptation, released for the Atari 2600 in November 1982. This maze is not based on the game, but the original film. I wasn't satifisfied with Atari 2600 graphic quality for my mazes anymore.

Similar to the original movie's number of game treatments, Raiders would only receive this one maze adaptation from me... suprising for one of my favorite movies. But after I tackled Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom in the next book, with more of a video inspiration, I never revisited this film as a theme. This scene is clearly exclusively from the "Well of Souls" portion of the film.
