Area 1: Raft Run
This area is actually comprised of two separate, connected areas. I've combined them into one for the purpose of this walkthrough.
After the cut scene, Indy and friends are sliding downhill in a yellow rubber raft. Steer with the D-pad to collect studs and avoid obstacles like trees and ice boulders. You won't be able to get everything on the first pass. So do what you can the first time through and be sure to return later in Free Play to pick up any artifact pieces you missed.
Try to hit the LEGO snowmen, though, as these will help you get artifact pieces. The counter at the bottom left corner of the touch screen shows how many snowmen you've hit so far. Smashing any 10 will give you artifact piece (1/10). The other artifacts are located in specific spots:
Run over the first three snowmen by steering first to the right, then left, then right. After that, stay to the left to slide up onto a ledge that runs along the left canyon wall. Aim for the cluster of studs near the end of the ledge, which should point you a little to the right so you can jump across the canyon onto the next ledge. Here you'll find artifact piece (2/10), provided you hit those first three snowmen.
When you enter the dark, narrow ice tunnel, avoid the rocky spikes and stay to the right at the fork. When you emerge into the light again, bear to the left to slide up onto a narrow ledge that runs along the canyon wall. Follow it to the end to get artifact piece (3/10). After that, stay toward the left of the course and then continue more or less straight ahead. Try not to slip off the narrow, icy plateau as you follow it to the end, where you'll find artifact piece (4/10).
On a different play-through, when you enter the dark canyon, stay to the left at the fork. Immediately after the path splits, you'll jump across a small chasm. Continue to a huge snowflake made of studs, at the center of which is artifact piece (5/10). After this, stay to the right to avoid hitting the rock formation on the left.
You can also get artifact #4 after taking the left fork in the dark tunnel. When you emerge into the light, continue more or less straight ahead and follow the narrow, icy plateau to the end, where you'll find the artifact.
Area 2: First Riverbank
Move to the left. Stand on the yellow pad and blow into the microphone to inflate a rubber raft. Hop in and float across the river. Jump out on the opposite bank and gather the studs there. Then return to the start.
Now head to the right. Stand Indy on the whip pad and swing across the river to the other side. Use the loose LEGO bits to build a bridge so Willie can cross. Position Willie on the gray pad on the right and press A to use her umbrella to slide down the cable to the opposite bank. Step on the button to raise a boulder in the water so Indy can join her.
Smash the shrubs in the background to reveal a crawlspace. Switch to Short Round (by pressing the L or R button or tapping his portrait on the touch screen). His small size allows him to fit through small hatches like this. Press A to crawl through and emerge on the other side of the stream to the right. Step on the button to raise another boulder so the second character can cross.
Switch back to Indy and use the whip pad to climb to the ledge above. Whip down the box on the right, which contains map piece (1/3). Then stand both characters on the large gold button to lower the bars across the doorway and go through.
Area 3: Riverbank with Dynamite
In the area beyond, stand on the whip pad and use Indy's whip to grab some dynamite. Push it along the checkerboard tiles toward the big LEGO boulder. A small pile of bits falls down on the left. Use it to build a plunger and push that to blow up the dynamite. Use the bits that remain to build another crawlspace. Use Short Round to crawl through onto the ledge above. Jump to the ledge on the right and turn the crank to open the bars below on the right.
FREE PLAY: Jump back to the ledge on the left, then to the next ledge beyond this one. Toggle to a Thuggee character and use the Thuggee access panel to open the bars in front of artifact piece (6/10).
Climb down and go through the opening on the right.
Area 4: Riverbank with Floating Logs
Use Willie's umbrella to slide from the gray pad down to the opposite riverbank. Push the wooden crate into the water so the other character can use it to cross. Stand Indy on the whip pad and use his whip to grab the crate in the water on the right. Smash it, build a dangling rope and use it to reach the ledge above. Stand on the next whip pad and pull another crate down from above. Use the leftover bits to build a crank. Turn it to open the bars on the right, allowing the logs trapped behind it to begin floating downstream.
Hop across the moving logs to the small square button in the middle of the stream. Step on it to open the bars on the left bank. Continue jumping across the floating logs to the right bank. Turn the crank there to raise a barrier that traps the logs, forming a bridge. Cross back over to the left to retrieve the red brick. Then return to the right bank to continue.
FREE PLAY: On the right bank (i.e., the same side of the river as the crank), move to the bottom left corner of the riverbank. Follow the trail of studs across the partially submerged logs to the area in the front right corner of the map.
Switch to a character with a shovel and dig up the sparkling patch. Use the bits you find to build a crank and turn it to lower a platform with the pieces needed to build artifact piece (7/10). Return across the logs to the upper riverbank.
Stand both characters on the large, gold button to open the bars. Go through to the next area.
Area 5: Riverbank with Log Barriers and Spike Pit
Smash the plants on the left to get map piece (2/3). Then stand on the whip pad and use Indy's whip to grab the wooden crate. Smash it and build a solid LEGO plate over the spike pit in front of the crawlspace. Switch from Indy to Short Round and go through. Turn the crank to lower the log barrier on the right.
Before jumping down, switch back to Indy and use the whip pad to swing across to artifact piece (8/10).
Continue to the right. Have Indy use the whip pad to swing across the stream. Step on the button to raise a pair of boulders in the water so the other character can cross. Have both characters step on the large, gold button to lower the next barrier.
FREE PLAY: Use a character with a shovel to dig up the sparkly patch between the 2 buttons. Use the bits to build a Thuggee access panel. Toggle to a Thuggee character to beat the mini-game and open the gate on the left. Go through.
Smash the carved blocks and use a small character to wriggle through the crawlspace to the ledge above. Push the wall button to rearrange the ledges above on the right. Jump over to the next ledge and push the wall button there to move the ledges back the way they were. Jump across to the left.
Toggle to a character with an umbrella and slide down the zip line from the gray pad to the ledge below. Turn the crank to lower the bars in front of artifact piece (9/10). Grab it and return through the other doorway to the main area.
Head to the right. Smash the green shrub near the yellow pad to get map piece (3/3). If you found the other map pieces earlier, you'll get artifact piece (10/10) now.
Stand on the yellow pad and blow into the microphone to inflate a rubber raft. Hop in to trigger a cut scene and end the level.
