Description

The Secret of Monkey Island: Special Edition faithfully re-imagines the internationally-acclaimed classic game (originally released in 1990) for original and new audiences alike. The game is brought into the modern era with an all new re-imagined contemporary art style, a re-mastered musical score, full voiceover, and an in-depth hint system to help players through the game’s side-splitting puzzles. Purists will also delight in the ability to seamlessly switch between the updated hand-drawn re-imagining and the original classic version.

The game's twisty plot leads our naive hero on a hilarious, swash-buckling search for the fabled secret of Monkey Island. Tales of pirate wealth lure him to the port of Mêlée with high hopes, no money, and insatiable curiosity. If clever enough, he will win the confidence of Mêlée's pirates and find himself blown by the winds of fate toward the terrifying and legendary Monkey Island -- an adventure that would chill the bones of even the most bloodthirsty buccaneer.

  1. Just a piece of museum
    by Kid Iota, Spain - Nov 10th 2014

    I played this game in the 90's and I enjoyed it very much. But not now. 20 years are a lot of years for a game. Can you imagine how games will be within 20 years? Not me. The pace of the game is very slow. The story is lightly fun, but childish. The interface is clumsy, primitive. Many of the puzzles are illogic, most of them just plain.The graphics are too simple, with static backgrounds and bad animations. Nothing really interesting happens, so the urge to continue doesn't exists. Why did I like this game som much in it's time? I suppose it was as comparison to others at the moment. But, I repeat, not now. Only useful to collect.

  2. Great game
    by Sonny101, United Kingdom - Jun 2nd 2014

    Love all the Monkey Island games and I'm very happy about this special edition one. You learn how Guybrush and Elane meet for the first time and get yourself into great adventures in a graphic who fits into the time.
