When it comes to point-and-click adventures, the Monkey Island series is certainly one of the most distinguished and well-liked of the bunch. So if you’re a fan of LucasArts’ offering, you’d be extremely pleased to know that Monkey Island 2 Special Edition: LeChuck’s Revenge is now on sale for only $0.99 (down from $7.99). ChiffaN, our resident adventures fanatic, recently reviewed the game and found it highly enjoyable, even giving it a Kiss It rating.
The adventures of Guybrush won over people’s hearts and wallets long before the iPhone ever was conceived. On the iDevice the Monkey Island 2 finds a home away from home, fueling the rebirth of the adventure game genre and acquainting the generation “i” with the classics. Though it lacks the additional content of Broken Sword: Director’s Cut (TMA Review) it makes up for it in superb graphics, all-new voiceovers and completely touch-screen interface… Time to embark on the search for Big Whoop, ye mates.
The sale only applies to the iPhone/iPod Touch version, so iPad owners are out of luck at the moment. At any rate, if you fancy a top notch title on your iDevice (especially if you’ve already played the first - The Secret of Monkey Island: Special Edition), don’t hesitate for a second with this excellent price drop.
