Monkey Island, the first one, was probably one of the best re-imagined retro games for the iPhone, also making it as one of the best point-and-click adventure games on the platform. I had an enjoyable time with the first version, and while I’m not too keen with point-and-click adventure games, Monkey Island drew me in like no other.
Fortunately, LucasArts has decided to release the second Monkey Island, named Le Chuck’s Revenge to both the iPhone and iPad (separate versions, separate costs). It brings all the “special” it brought to the first game in the series, with the ability to switch between classic and enhanced graphics, redone musical score, voiceovers, and a hint system.
If you were a fan of the first game, this seems to be a no-brainer. Hopefully I’ll be able to get my hands on this title before the night wanes into dawn.
