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.
