This is an adventure-platformer in which players help Lara Croft and her allies recover ancient artifacts in an underground temple. From a 3/4 overhead perspective, players traverse environments and use pistols, machine guns, shotguns, and magical relics to defeat fantastical creatures (e.g., giant scarabs, skeletal warriors, crocodile creatures) in frenetic combat. Battles are accompanied by realistic gunfire, large explosions, and cries of pain. Some creatures break apart into pieces and/or emit splashes of colorful liquid when defeated; one sequence depicts blood stains on a book. The word “bastard” can be heard in the game.
