About This Game

While explosively stripping the evil pirate LeChuck of his demonic mojo, Guybrush Threepwood inadvertently infects the entire Caribbean with the arch-fiend's expelled voodoo, which threatens to transform buccaneers into unruly pirate monsters. Pursued by a notorious cut-throat Pirate Hunter and a creepy French Physician who believes that Guybrush's eerily-infected hand holds the secret of eternal life, Threepwood sails the seven seas in search of La Esponja Grande, a legendary sea sponge with unparalleled voodoo exfoliating abilities. But little does Guybrush know, his quest is part of a larger, more sinister plot, and good and evil are not always as they seem...
Who can Guybrush trust? Where can he turn? Everything you think you know will be challenged as Tales of Monkey Island builds to its unexpected finale!

About Chapter One


The saga begins with a heated battle involving the brave but often bumbling Mighty Pirate™ Guybrush, his beloved wife Elaine, and their nemesis, the demon pirate LeChuck. When the showdown goes up in flames, Guybrush finds himself marooned on a strange island with winds that always blow inward. How will our hero manage to escape this meteorological anomaly? What has become of LeChuck and Elaine? And what's the story with the infectious voodoo pox that's spreading across the Caribbean, causing Guybrush and other pirates to act like unruly hooligans? These are just some of the many questions posed in this first chapter of one of the most rollicking and rip-roaring entertainment experiences this summer.

About Chapter Two


Guybrush's adventures continue on the high seas as pox-plagued pirates lay siege to the innocent Mer-People. In between defending the Mer-People and dodging the persistent pirate hunter hot on his trail, Guybrush manages to catch up to his beloved wife and despised arch-nemesis — but their reunion is short-lived. Now Guybrush must focus on eradicating the Pox of LeChuck before more harm can be done. And as the Mighty Pirate draws closer to a cure, the waters will only grow murkier in this thrilling chapter of the epic saga.

About Chapter Three


In the third Tales of Monkey Island chapter, Guybrush gets in deep (literally!) as his quest for the voodoo exfoliating La Esponja Grande takes a scenic twist -- through the guts of a giant manatee!
Trapped in the belly of the beast, our hero encounters a surprising band of castaways, including the long-lost (and obsessive-compulsive) explorer Coronado De Cava. Can the Mighty Pirate win the suspicious De Cava's trust? Will sexy pirate hunter Morgan LeFlay prove to be a ruthless enemy, or an unlikely ally? Will the group find La Esponja Grande in time to save Elaine from the rampant Pox of LeChuck? And will the world be crushed by the gnashing teeth of a certain demonic skull? Tales of Monkey Island's moist and absorbing third episode, Lair of the Leviathan, will answer some of these urgent questions -- and raise still more -- as the five month adventure builds to its epic climax!

About Chapter Four


Guybrush returns to Flotsam Island, but forget about a hero's welcome. Handed over to De Singe by the backstabbing Morgan LeFlay, Guybrush is seized by an angry mob and put on trial! With a silk-tongued prosecutor in his face and a hangman's noose dangling over his neck, Guybrush must figure out how to defend himself against grave accusations. Meanwhile, the determined Marquis sets his sights on a new and far more attractive test subject. How on earth will the Mighty Pirate get out of this mess? The monthly Tales of Monkey Island tension continues to mount in "The Trial and Execution of Guybrush Threepwood." Brace yourself for a shocking revelation that will rock the world of Monkey Island to its core.

About Chapter Five


Our piratey heroes meet their ultimate match with the Rise of the Pirate God. Can the world of Monkey Island be saved? Find out as the Tales of Monkey Island saga comes to its thrilling conclusion.

I LOVE the Monkey Island series. I started playing from Escape (bad start, yes). Then I tried out the 1st and 2nd games went they went on the iPad App Store. Never tried the 3rd one, but I heard some good stuff.

So after finishing Tales of Monkey Island, I can honestly say that I enjoyed it. The characters are still as funny as they were in the previous games, and the story, while a bit weird and confusing, was still enjoyable. The humour was still excellent, even thought they did get new writers for this one. Many references and small homages to pop-culture, and even the older Monkey Island games too.

And to all of you Mac users, don't worry, the game works fine. In the amount of time I played the game, I haven't encountered any bugs or glitches.

It's a shame they won't be making a sixth game, since all the characters only agreed to a five-game deal with LucasArts (Escape From Monkey Island joke, look it up). But to me, this was a pretty fitting end to Guybrush's piratey adventures. I'd say that this game is absolutely worth it's full price.
Before I end this review, let me just say this one sentence...
Oh, how appropriate, you fight like a cow.

A perfect follow-up to the legendary Monkey Island series. Hits all the right notes in terms of typical Monkey Island humor. Graphics might be jarring for some but it's better than EMI especially once you get used to the style. The first episode is the weakest but it gets better as you play. Puzzles overall are simpler compared to earlier titles but this also means they are not frustrating, so it's well-balanced. Absolutely recommended for MI fans.

A fantastic few chapters in the continuing story of Guybrush Threepwood - Mighty Pirate TM. The chapters were each surprisingly long, taking my wife and I about 5hrs per chapter making 25hrs of gameplay time.

I originally played The Secret of Monkey Island 1 years ago as a child - before any voices were added (the game intalled from 3x 1.44mb disks I think), and The Secret of Monkey Island 2 a few years later - also on 1.44mb disks if I recall correctly. I never played number 3, and was there a number 4?? Either way, this has plenty of great tie-ins with the original games and was good for a few laughs. My wife had never played any of Monkey Island, but she picked up on the general idea soon enough and enjoyed the series and the ending.

Puzzles were very well thought out and often needed different perspectives and logic and plain old trial and error to figure out what the whacky item combinations were. Playing with the wife was great for the second opinions and to introduce her to the childhood that was Monkey Island!

Great value at $5, especially if you've played any of the old games of the series!

I really love this game. This type of game is my bread and butter and I think it has just the right blend of difficulty without making it so hard you stop playing. Not to mention the story is fun and really adds to the experience. It isn't for everyone, but if you like puzzle solving and a good adventure story then this is probably for you.

Great game! A bit darker and more serious than the pervious games, but still a good ending to the story about Guybrush
