Fortunately for Indy's adventurous soul, the world is still a dangerous place. The Soviet Union has slammed an Iron Curtain down across Europe, provoking the Cold War that will occupy East and West for half a century. Communist agents are everywhere, searching for a weapon to tip the balance of power in their favor.  And they may have found something useful in the desert ruins of Babylon, the legendary Tower of Babel. Gennadi Volodnikov, an unorthodox Russian scholar, thinks the Tower housed a machine to reach across the dimensions of space and time, inspired by the winged god Marduk. When gears began to clatter, alarmed Babylonians toppled the Tower, scattering four of Marduk's disciples - and parts of the machine - to the far corners of the globe.  Indy races the Soviets to recover those parts and stop them from repairing "Infernal Machine".
