Plot summary[]

During World War I, spy Indiana Jones is contacted by an agent who explains that the French have intercepted several short-wave radio transmissions from Germany indicating that German spies were dispatched to buy the finest military weapons technologies from scientists around the world.

Indy is sent to contact points in four different countries in order to block the technology sales and neutralize the German agent. Cheng notifies Indy to journey to a temple in Lhasa and stop a Tibetan scientist from supplying the enemy with their mustard gas device. Habib calls Indy to Cairo because the German agent sought to buy their advanced Gatling gun in the basement of a pyramid.


The zeppelin is destroyed.

After being notified by Ian, Indy traversed Tower Bridge in London and stopped the enemy from acquiring the flame-thrower technology through a treacherous English scientist inside Big Ben, while Ali told Indy to stop the spy from taking the ball-bearing bomb inside the dungeons of a temple near a Bombay marketplace.

With all the deals prevented, Klaus, a German double agent, instructs Indy to infiltrate and destroy a prototype zeppelin in Berlin. Jones is successful, and production of the zeppelin is crippled.
