The player takes the role of INDIANA JONES in his quest to recover the sacred SANKARA STONE that once protected MAYAPORE, a remote village in India. He must also free the children from MAYAPORE who have been enslaved in the evil PANKOT PALACE.

The palace is the secret worshipping grounds for the THUGGEE death cult. MOLA RAM, the ruthless High Priest has forced the village children to dig in the THUGGEE mines for precious gems and the other missing SANKARA STONES.

Wave 1. The player controls INDY in the mine caverns, a labyrinth of narrow passages, ladders, chutes and conveyor belts. INDY must free the children along the way and escape the pursuing PHUGGEE GUARDS.

Wave 2. Upon reaching the tunnel entrance, INDY rides a mine car still trying to escape THUGGEE GUARDS and avoid derailing on the unpredictable tracks. In the higher levels of this wave, INDY must watch out for missing rails, jumps, giant bats and a THUGGEE GIANT.

Wave 3. In THE TEMPLE OF DOOM, INDY must reach the SANKARA STONE which is placed on front of the statue of KALI, the four-armed goddess of death. Once the stone is retrieved, INDY exits into the mine vaverns. The action continues until INDY revocers 3 stones.

INDY is then faced with escaping over a perilous rope bridge. A "bonus round" is awarded if the escape is successful.

Das Spiel basiert auf dem gleichnamigen US-Spielfilm (deutscher Titel: Indiana Jones und der Tempel des Todes) von 1984 mit Harrison Ford, Kate Capshaw und Jonathan Ke Quan in den Hauptrollen.

Neben der Tengen-Umsetzung für das NES erschien das System durch Mindscape, U.S. Gold und Kixx noch auf Amstrad/Schneider CPC, Apple II, Atari ST, Commoore 64, MSX, NES, Sinclair ZX Spectrum sowie für MS-DOS.

Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom ist das erste System 1-Spiel von Atari Games, das mit digitalisierten Voicetracks arbeitet, in diesem Fall Harrison Ford in seiner Rolle als Archäologe Dr. Henry „Indiana“ Jones und Amrish Puri als Hohepriester Mola Ram. Auch Teile der von John Williams komponierten Filmmusik werden verwendet.
