One of the funnest parts about watching "Raiders of the Lost Ark," the old movie with Harrison Ford as Indiana Jones, is how it looked. Indy dodged danger and fought off the bad guys from deep inside dark tombs, jungles and forgotten cities.

You can experience that in any of the four "Raiders" movies, or by playing a videogame. But, you don't have to dig out your Atari. There's a new game that captures the feel of those movies.

You can experience a little bit of that "Raiders" magic in the smartphone game Blocky Raider. Blocky, who's kind of a Lego-style version of Indiana Jones, racks up points as he dodges danger in torch-lit dungeons.

You use your finger to control the game. You guide Blocky Raider to speed through closing doors and to jump over bridges. You help him get past fire pits, over deep pools of water and past spinning saws. (See video below.)

Note: If you've played the game Crossy Road, Blocky Raider is virtually the same, except for its look.
