Hello there! It’s so wonderful to get a new apprentice. You can call me Arty.

We haven’t found all of the bits of the last fellow yet, I’m sure we’ll piece him back together eventually. Well pip pip huzzah and all that!

Well, I say old bean, welcome to A.R.T.I., Archaeological Rescue Team International.

We are an old and storied organization, specializing in rescuing wayward adventurers and explorers, oh, and the odd over curious cat.

We’ve developed these rather spiffy jet powered rescue suits that I’ll tell you a bit more about later. Unfortunately, I’m getting a bit too old to pull on the “A” suits now, but if you read on, I’ll be able to guide you through the basics of your training.

A.R.T.I. Box


Archaeological Rescue Team International (A.R.T.I.) is an old and storied organization, specializing in the rescuing wayward adventurers and explorers. You take on the role of Arty’s new apprentice. Pack your “H” suite and rescue gear, next stop: South America!

Your objective is to rescue the adventurer or explorer who happened to get themselves lost in each area. Fortunately, you have some pretty nifty gear and doodads to help you in your mission. Your “A” suit comes with a built in gyrocopter, a laser beam and a useful dynamite dispenser.

In the rescue zone, you will come across all manner of beasties. You can avoid them or dispatch them with the laser beam. Walls can be taken out with dynamite, but don’t stand too close! Watch out for lamps, too, if you knock out the lamp, you will be working in the dark!
