Ending a week loaded with Monkey Island price drops comes The Secret of Monkey Island: Special Edition [$4.99 / Free] for the iPad. All of the other games are on sale per yesterday's post, but much like Monkey Island 2 for the iPad, the original Monkey Island looks just as awesome.
The premise of the game along with other details are explained in our review:
The game features Guybrush Threepwood, who washes up on the island of Mêlée™ and has high hopes of becoming a pirate. After meeting the pirate leaders in the SCUMM tavern, you're faced with a set of three challenges that involve swordfighting, thievery, and treasure hunting. These goals serve as your initial quests as your adventure begins.
Monkey Island for the iPad comes with the same direct tapping control input method as Monkey Island 2 and really is just a joy to play on the device. The art looks great on the iPad screen, and while the rest of the game is identical to the iPhone version, Monkey Island is a game I can play through over and over again. If you're tired of playing the iPhone game pixel doubled, or have just been waiting for an iPad native version, now is your chance.
