img_0312LucasArts' Secret of Monkey Island has been put on sale this weekend for only $3.99 (down from $7.99) [App Store].

Originally released in 1990, and having seen several revisions following the initial release including a port to the Sega CD, this Special Edition of The Secret of Monkey Island [App Store] is the best version of the game yet. It has been completely re-imagined with new art, complete voice-overs, and a new live instrumental musical score. The iPhone version really is an impressive effort.

The game has also seen a 1.1 update which fixes a number of 3GS related issues (graphics, crahes), audio bugs, and tunes the control acceleration and sensitivities.

    Can someone who downloaded version 1.1 please tell if the controls are now working better? Thanks.

    Got it last night! Great game.

    Capone; I don't know if the controls are better but they are kinda confusing at first.. got used to them by now.

  • Scott

    Controls are a lot more responsive now-I'm actually going to finish playing it.

  • Capone

    Thanks for your answers.

    the graphics are more clean, and the touchpad controls are more like 'accelerated' now, kinda like a blackberry ball or a trackball, and the double tapping is more lenient. Was just wondering if they were ever gonna update this, guess I got my answer =)

    I did a direct comparison of 1.1 to 1.0. The graphics are nicer, controls are MUCH faster (with selectable sensitivity), and tapping has been improved.
