This is an action-adventure game in which players assume the role of Lara Croft on a quest to recover an ancient artifact. Using a top-down view, players must cooperatively solve environmental puzzles to avoid traps as they traverse ancient temples and jungle ruins. Players use spears, machine guns, shotguns, rocket launchers, and remote bombs to defeat a villain's demonic forces. Shooting enemy creatures (e.g., giant spiders, stone creatures, giant lizards, dinosaurs) sometimes results in splashes of colored blood that briefly stain the ground. Realistic gunfire, explosions, and cries of pain are heard throughout the frenetic combat.
