Publisher's summary[]

Indiana Jones is on the run... Again!

It's a fast-paced chase to see who can make it to the legendary city of gold–get ready for a race to Akator!

Plot summary[]

A partial adaptation of the film, the story broadly covers events beginning around Indiana Jones and Mutt Williams' recovery of the Crystal Skull of Akator from Chauchilla Cemetery up to the arrival at the entrance to the city of gold itself (although the photographs depict the interior of the temple with the door to the treasure chamber). Much of the action is centered around the Jungle Chase.
