Loving Lara Croft:
what’s the story?

Whether you’re a fan of computer games or not, the chances are you’ve heard of the legendary Tomb Raider series featuring the favourite heroine of many: Lara Croft. Developers Core Design started work on Tomb Raider as far back as 1993, before launching the game in 1996 – much to the delight of legions of gaming fans.

Tomb Raider’s appeal has always been tied to the feisty character of Lara Croft, an archaeologist from England who has a serious kick-butt attitude and then some. Gamers travel with Lara as she tours the world to find important historical artefacts – and gets stuck into the dangerous sites of tombs and ruins for added thrills. Generations of fans have aligned themselves to Lara Croft and her adventures, and there are many who continue their love affair with this ballsy and sexy heroine.

After the launch of Tomb Raider in 1996, developers worked hard on bringing out bigger and better versions of the game every few years, much to the delight of thousands of fans. The first game was playable on personal computers, PlayStation and Sega Saturn consoles. The success of the first Tomb Raider inspired the creation of Tomb Raider II, which was introduced in 1997 – and was again played by gamers on PCs and PlayStation consoles. This was followed by Tomb Raider III in 1998; and Tomb Raider: The Last Revelation in 1999. The year 2000 was a big deal for the Tomb Raider franchise, as the game was now available to play via Dreamcast. As well as that, Tomb Raider Chronicles was released in the same year, and proved to be yet another hit for fans.

Not content with the already impressive development of Tomb Raider over the previous years, developers decided to give players a shiny and new version in 2003 with the creation of Tomb Raider: The Angel of Darkness. This game was playable on both personal computers and the Playstation 2. Tomb Raider Legend was even bigger and better, especially as it was available on so many devices. Players had the option of choosing to enjoy Lara’s adventures using their PCs, Playstation 2, Xbox, Xbox 360, Playstation Portable, GameCube, Gameboy Advance and Nintendo DS.

Tomb Raider Anniversary was introduced to a global audience in 2007, and this was followed by Tomb Raider Underworld in 2008. In 2011, the Tomb Raider Trilogy was redeveloped to allow for play in HD, and this was far from the end of Lara’s adventures with her fans. A Tomb Raider reboot was launched in 2015, with new versions appearing on different platforms the following year.

Thanks to the success and huge popularity of Tomb Raider, it started appearing in casinos as far back as 1997. Games like the Tomb Raider 2 slot are still enjoyed by thousands of fans from all over the world today – at both online and in-house casinos. The enduring appeal of Tomb Raider has made it a cult classic. If playing the game and the slots has inspired you to revisit the favourites from your childhood, check out these cool retro kids TV shows for a fun trip down memory lane.
