The Secret of Monkey Island gets an iPad Special Edition

We were worried when classic adventure The Secret of Monkey Island first came to iPhone. What if it wasn’t as rip-roaringly funny as we remembered?

Thankfully, it was. But as well-realised as the iPhone version was, we’ve been craving an iPad version to make use of the big screen. Well, it’s here. The Secret of Monkey Island: Special Edition, for iPad is its somewhat wordy name, and it hit the App Store this weekend.

As the blurb puts it: “Pirates! Adventure! Monkeys!”

The game has hi-res visuals, a voiceover using the original cast members, and a choice of Special Edition and Classic modes to play. The controls have been tweaked too, with traditional point’n’click interface, or direct character control.

A must-download for gamers of all ages. And its sequel is already available for iPad too, and has just got a patch to correct some of its flaws.
