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.

Comments and Ratings for The Secret of Monkey Island ™: Special Edition

Ridiculous (1.0.2)
3/9/2016 10:29:00 PM 1/5 By Monicajway
Heaven forbid you need to change the language in the game. You pick one and thats it. NOWHERE can you change the language once the game starts. Not a single option to change it. Even uninstalling and then a reinstall doesnt even work. The support forums online are not helpful. “go to this folder, delete that folder, search for .lkwalknalifne/liknkandcli then delete that one folder”….the support team at aspyr is non existent. “we’ll email you shortly”. 3 days, no contact. I’m asking for a refund. what a joke.

Does not work with El Capitan (1.0.2)

I have emailed Aspyr and they replied that they are aware that this game any many other titles are not compatible with El Capitan but they have not provided notice on the App Store that these games will not work. Loved the game growing up and wish it worked.

Game is bugged on El Capitan (1.0.2)

Got this game a few weeks ago. Was a lot of fun until I upgraded to El Capitan. Now the screen is offcenter to the degree that the game is unplayable. I’m surprised that this wasn’t tested and fixed before I upgraded since I waited so long to move to El Capitan. If they haven’t fixed this by now I don’t expect that they ever will. Great game but really terrible support. Do not buy.

Great game, well re-made, with just one problem: HUGE memory leak. If you're careful to fully exit and quit the game (nothing running the the background) every couple of hours, you should only have to deal with a few minutes of lag when minimizing/maximizing the game. Otherwise, you may run into 20 minute screen freezes, continuous music (even after a force quit), and other junk. Still, the ocassional restart is well worth the nostalgia.

Beware Opening Titles (1.0.2)

Start a new game .. watch titles forever (you can't skip them) … then listen to music while title screen sits motionless … and wait .. and wait. In fact, the title screen NEVER goes away. Endless keyboard bashing discovers that you must press the DELETE key to get rid of the startup screen. Not documented, pointless, no idea why. A dumb attempt at humor? A pity, I remember the original with much fondness, hence the three stars .. and -3 for this absurd irritation.

Great Game (1.0.2)

Great game. I've played all old versions of this game. It's awesome to have this back and discover again all puzzles. Nice graphics, content meets the original version.

glitchy (1.0.2)

The game freezes occasionally during dialogue sequences and you lose all unsaved progress. Good game, but frustrating!

Fantastic! (1.0.2)
11/25/2012 1:17:00 AM 5/5 By Prachi Gauriar
What a great game. I never played it in the ’90s, but playing it this weekend really took me back to my childhood playing Kings Quest, Kyrandia, Space Quest, etc., etc., etc. The artwork and voice work is great, and the story is a lot of fun. One really cool feature is the ability to hit the 0 (zero) key to switch to the original graphics and music. Anyway, if you love Adventure Games or just want to play something fun, get this game.

Fun Game (1.0.2)

Fun game, can you also do DOTT?

Great classic remade very nicely, but BOILS your computer (1.0.2)
8/22/2012 11:36:00 AM 2/5 By nurikaakasouliloquy
I have been a rabid adventure game fan since the earliest graphic-based examples of the genre, and anyone who has been into adventure games for that long knows how and why Monkey Island series is considered among the best examples of the genre ever. This game is probably my fav. Monkey Island game, and it is beautifully remade BUT it makes my MBA (2012), which otherwise never has heating issues even when working on Photoshop, BURN like a kettle,so much so that I cannot hold it with my bare hand. and if running on battery, lose the entire charge in 1-2 hours (as opposed to the ~5 hrs..) I am not worried about the 9.99 i spent, but worried that i cannot recommend this beautiful rendition of the classic to any of my friends, since I cannot risk my valuable computer for just one game, and neither should anyone. Really wanting to play this game, I researched all over the internet for other people having the same issue and possible solutions. I found out that the terrible heating problem is also present for various generations of MacBook Pro's as well, and for many other MBA users other than me, and noone seems to be able to offer a solution. It is very irresponsible of the company to keep selling this clearly faulty app., and not bothering with an update that would fix the heating issue, even though people have been complaining about it since the game's release, really guys, what have you been up to for the last 1,5 years?
