General Tips: This walkthrough covers just the basics—the locations of important items, how to get from one Area to the next, etc. If you're just starting the game, I encourage you to check out the Introduction and Controls page before getting started. Be sure to smash all breakable objects and explore everywhere. This will help you find additional studs that aren't mentioned in the walkthrough.

Area 1: Jungle
Head downhill to the right. Use Satipo to dig up the sparkling patch of ground and unearth a carved block. Smash the block and use the leftover LEGO bits to build a ledge. Climb the ledges to the level above.
Position Indy on the whip pad and swing across the gap. Build a crank mechanism and turn it to raise a bridge so Satipo can cross. Stand both characters on the large gray button to open the gate.
Continue to the right. Use Satipo to dig up a carved block. Smash it and build a whip pad. Use Indy's whip to climb to the ledge above. Push the small block to the left along the checkerboard tiles. When the block falls and breaks, hop down and use the leftover pieces to build a handle. Pull it to raise a platform just to the right and use it to jump across the gap.
Fight the Hovitos spearmen the open Area ahead. (See the Combat section of the Introduction for tips.)
Smash the green shrub in the background to reveal a map piece (1/3). Finding all three map pieces in any level reveals one of the ten artifact pieces.
Use the brown bits to build another whip pad. Whip swing across the gap to the right. Use the loose LEGO pieces to build 3 statues. Then whip the handle on each statue to raise a bridge so Satipo can join Indy. Use Satipo to dig up the sparkling patch of ground and unearth a blowpipe, which you can then pick up and use against enemies.
There are more Hovitos tribesmen ahead. After defeating them, go to the right end of the wall where you built the three statues. Climb onto the wall and follow the trail of studs to the left. On top, above the alcove with the statues, you'll find artifact piece (1/10). Jump down and return to the right.
In the foreground, just before the right end wall, is a line of studs leading down to a ledge. Jump down, break the carved block and build artifact piece (2/10). Use the other pile of bits to make a dangling rope that will enable you to climb back up.
Approach each of the burning torches flanking the stone door in the background and blow into the microphone to extinguish them. This opens the exit. Go through to the next Area.
Area 2: Waterfall
Use Satipo to dig up a spear. Then stand on the yellow pad and blow into the mic to inflate a rubber raft. Hop into the raft and steer toward the waterfall in the background. Behind the falls is a concealed room with lots of studs.
FREE PLAY: Later, when you've unlocked a scholar character, replay this level in Free Play mode. When you reach this spot again, break the carved block and build a scholar access panel. Use the scholar character to activate the panel, which brings up a mini-game that you play on the touch screen. Complete the game to open the door. Enter and climb the rope to the wooden platform. Stand Indy on the whip pad and pull down a bridge to cross over to the next platform. Switch to a character carrying an umbrella, stand on the gray umbrella pad and slide down to the island below.
Use the loose bits to build a platform in the river so you can jump across to the Area with the two huts in the background to gather studs.
Jump back to the island. Switch to a character with a shovel and dig up a carved block. Smash it and use the bits to build a whip pad. Use the whip to pull down a bridge. Cross over to another island with another whip pad. Whip down yet another bridge. An Ewok appears on the other side and gives you Artifact piece (3/10).
Step on the square button behind the Ewok to raise a set of blocks you can use to jump back to the Area where you started. Exit through the archway in the background.
Hop back into the raft and paddle out from behind the waterfall. Steer to the right bank of the river, hop out and fight another tribesman.
FREE PLAY: The red pad can only be used by characters with pet monkeys. Later, when you've unlocked one of these characters, use him or her here in Free Play. Step on the pad and press A to switch to monkey form. Climb the bright green vines to the ledge on the left. Push the wall button to raise a platform so the other character can ride up. Toggle the second character to Indiana Jones, stand on the whip pad and pull down a bridge. Cross over and use the next whip pad to pull down another bridge on the left. Cross over it and then hop along the ledges to the left to get artifact piece (4/10). Return to the Area on the right.
Head toward the back of this Area and use Satipo to dig up a carved block. Smash it and build a whip pad. Use Indy's whip to pull down the bridge. Cross over to the Area in the background.
Place the blue brick (1/3) on the blue pad. Have Satipo dig up another blue brick (2/3) just to the right. Place it on the blue pad as well. Now stand Indy on the brown whip pad and use his whip to climb onto the ledge above. Break the carved block to get another blue brick (3/3). Grab it, jump down and place it on the blue pad. When the third brick is placed, the blue pad turns into a jiggling pile of LEGO bits, which you can use to build a large gray button. Have both characters stand on the button to open the exit.
Area 3: Temple Interior with Spear Trap
Head to the right. Build a whip pad. Swing across the gap. Build a second whip pad. Climb Indy's whip to the ledge above, where there is yet another whip pad. Before using it, smash the carved panel on the wall to obtain map piece (2/3). Then whip swing across to the left to land on the ledge above where you started. Pull the handle to open a small alcove below on the left.
Jump down from the ledge, go to the alcove you just opened and take the wooden torch. Move close to the burning brazier to light the torch. Then move next to each of the torches mounted on the wall to light them. When both are lit, the larger alcove opens. Step on the button inside to raise a platform that will enable both characters to cross the gap on the right.
FREE PLAY: Dig up the sparkling area on the ground. Use the bits to build a Thuggee access panel, which naturally can only be used by Thuggee characters. Return to this Area later in Free Play when you have such a character. When you activate the panel, it opens a mini-game that you must beat to open the door.
Inside, blow out the 3 torches along the left wall to reveal artifact piece (5/10) on the ledge above. Smash the carved block and build a red pad. Switch to a character with a pet monkey, step on the pad and change into the monkey. Then climb the vines to reach the artifact. Climb down, step on the red pad and change back into a human.
Break the other carved block and build a wall button. Push it to lower the water level. Hop down to the ledge below. Build a whip pad, toggle both characters to Indy and swing across to the right.
Stand back a bit and use your whip to break the carved panel above the whip pad where you land after crossing the water. This reveals map piece (3/3). If you've found the other two map pieces earlier in the level, you'll now receive artifact piece (6/10).
Build another whip pad and climb Indy's whip to the ledge above. Toggle to a character with a shovel and dig up the parts for another red pad. Change one character into a monkey and climb the vines to the ledge above on the left. Slide the box off the edge so it falls and breaks. Use the bits to build a large gray button. Stand both characters on it to raise the water level again.
Hop across the square ledges to the right. Dig up the bits to build a BOTCS access panel. Toggle to a character who is a member of the Brotherhood of the Cruciform Sword and activate the panel to bring up another mini-game. Solve it to open the door and get artifact piece (7/10).
Now jump back to the center ledge, step on the big button to lower the water level, hop down and make your way along the lower level to the left. Use the whip pad near the vines to climb back up to the entrance and return to the main Area.
To get past the elaborate spear trap, you must hop across the tiles touching only the green ones. If your character lands on a red tile, the spears pop out and you must start over. Here it helps to position your character on the left side of each green tile before jumping to the right over the adjacent red tile. If you start on the right side of the green tile, it's easy to accidentally trigger the spears.
Once you've passed the spear trap, push the square wall button to deactivate the trap so the other character can cross easily. Then stand on the large gray button to open the exit.
Area 4: Temple Interior with Moving Blocks
Smash the carved panel on the wall just to the left of the entrance to reveal Artifact piece (8/10).
Build the whip pad and swing across the gap. Build a handle and pull it to open the wooden gate so Satipo can join Indy. Run carefully past each of the moving blocks as it retracts. Continue to the right.
Smash the carved panel near the whip pad to reveal a tunnel. Go through. In the next room, stand on each of the 3 whip pads and use Indy's whip to pull the levers on the 3 statues. This raises 3 carved blocks. Break them and build 3 floor buttons. Step on them to lower 3 large blocks that form a set of stairs.
Now go to the right and place the blue bricks (1/3 and 2/3) on the blue pad. Smash the carved block to get another blue brick (3/3). Place it on the pad and build another floor button. Step on the button to complete the staircase. Climb the stairs to the Area above.
Notice the mural on the wall depicting 4 colored LEGO bricks. Step on each of the colored floor buttons in the same order they appear in the mural: green, yellow, blue then red. This opens the door revealing artifact piece (9/10). Return to the left and go back through the tunnel to the main Area.
Build a whip pad and use it to climb to the ledge above. Now take a series of running jumps across the tops of the moving blocks to reach the ledge the left. Push the wall button to extend a rope so your companion can climb up. Stand both characters on the large gray button to open the exit.
Area 5: Stairway and Idol Room
FREE PLAY: Break the block near the entrance and build a crawlspace. Only small characters can fit through these little hatches. So return to this Area in Free Play when you have a little guy. Have him crawl through to reach artifact piece (10/10) on the ledge above.
Go to the right. The red-tiled floor is a spear trap that prevents you from crossing directly to the idol on the other side. To get around it, dig up the carved block, smash it and use the leftover bits to build a fan. Stand on the fan and blow into the mic to lift your character into the air. Steer forward to land on the ledge. Cross over and jump down on the other side. Step on the small button to trigger a cut scene.
Area 6: Rolling Boulder
Immediately start running toward the foreground to avoid the huge rolling boulder. Don't worry too much about gathering studs. Just stay near the middle of the tunnel and concentrate on jumping over the various dark pits and LEGO rocks.
If you make it to the end of the tunnel without getting flattened, you'll see the red brick near the opening. Run through it and immediately jump over the pit beyond. Then continue to the end of the tunnel. If you miss the red brick on your first try, you can replay the level again later. You'll need to do this anyway to get the artifacts that are only available in Free Play.
When you reach the end of the tunnel—or the boulder reaches you—a final cut scene kicks in. After this you'll see your stats for the level and a message that the Temple of Doom and Last Crusade stories have been unlocked. (You can access those through the "II" and "III" doors in the college.) You'll then have the opportunity to continue the Raiders story or return to Barnett College.
