By Aspyr Media, Inc. (Aspyr Media (iDP))

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.

Relive the swashbuckling humorous misadventures of the wannabe pirate Guybrush Threepwood
* Go on a daring adventure in your attempt to become the most infamous pirate in the Caribbean
* Win the heart of the beautiful governor, Elaine Marley
* Along the way, confront the evil ghost pirate, LeChuck

Play it again for the first time

I am a huge Monkey Island fan and it was part of my life growing up. I am glad to say this is a great adaption to the mac with much better graphics. I nice touch is pushing 0 and seeing the original graphics to bring back the memories. My best purchase for the mac and enjoyed doing all the puzzles again. No crashing or problems. Worth learning the keyboard shortcuts. Y=Pull S=Push L=Look T=Talk U=Use O=Open C=Close

Loved the original and l love this version. But please please apple - Please bring all the Monkey Island games to mac - such as monkey island 2,3,4,5 & the tales of monkey island to mac also please bring the kings quest games - all the old adventure games. But monkey island will always be a top favourite game. loved it on the old amiga - this game brings back some happy memories. —— The graphics are amazing and its nice to see the game brought back to life. BUT, did you know - you can also play the classic old version as well as the modern version, I found it by mistake. I forgot how l did it now. But u can also play the old 90’s version as well - which is also included with this app. please bring all the monkey island games to Mac - The monkey island games are still a well loved game.They are a classic and we love the classics -deep down.

Waste of time (1.0.2)

So boring it’s unreal. Characters are annoying at best, story is dull and the controls leave a lot to be desired.

Great Game - Make Sure You Manually Save Though. (1.0.2)
10/12/2013 13:30:00 5/5 By MiraculousMouse
Excellent game with real character and humour throughout. It has frozen on me twice on the two evenings that I've played it, so I'd recommend manually saving the game in a 'Save Game Slot' every now and again. Beautiful graphics. Some of the logic behind matching things or clues to complete a task is a little bit disjointed: for instance: collecting flowers for poisoning something, but with the flowers not being specified as a poisonous flower, but on the whole it is an excellent game. So many games lack real character nowadays, so it is refreshing to see a game where the developers have concentrated on making a remake of this colourful game. The strength of the game is that it's cheesy in a deliberate and fun way, with crisp graphics and a lot of humour. Well worth the price. A+++

A fun, humorous classic. (1.0.2)
24/05/2013 01:20:00 5/5 By MusicGuy2013
Firstly I'd like to mention that I've played through the whole game and not experienced any bugs which have affected gameplay. It has a great soundtrack. And I like the new arty look. Its everything great about the classic game with a new look.

graphics no good (1.0.2)
