Telltale Games is offering up its entire library of App Store iPad titles on the cheap again. From now until Feb. 10, 2011, you can download all four of their iPad games $2.99 instead of their usual six-plus dollar price points. Needless to say, this is definitely a deal for adventure game enthusiasts, as Telltale sort of has the genre down pat. Here’s the list:
Monkey Island Tales 1 HD, $2.99 - [Review] – [Forum Thread] – The Tales of Monkey Island series was fantastic on the PC and Mac and developer Telltale Games successfully ported over that experience to the iPad. Rich in humour, character, puzzles, and reverence to its forerunners, this is the ultimate adventure game for Monkey Island fans. It’s also pretty good as a standalone point-and-click adventure game.
Puzzle Agent HD, $2.99 - [Review] – [Forum Thread] – Puzzle Agent HD is a non-traditional point-and-click adventure title featuring the grim art of Graham Annable. It has a few technical problems, but the puzzles and the narrative are deeply involving and worth your time.
Sam & Max Episode 1: The Penal Zone for iPad, $6.99
- [Review] – [Forum Thread] – This game debuted when the iPad was all hot and new, so I’d imagine there was a rush on Telltale’s part to get this one on the App Store as soon as possible. I say that because this game, unlike the former two mentioned, is plagued by technical hitches. If you can get past those, though, there’s a pretty rich point-and-click experience waiting for you. There are also a few twists on the genre like, for example, solving puzzles in reverse. You see, Max inherits the power to see the future, which creates an assortment of odd scenarios in an already quirky and offbeat game.
Wallace & Gromit The Last Resort for iPad, $6.99 – [Forum Thread] – I’m not a huge Wallace and Gromit fan, but I don’t need to be one to recognize that this particular joint has a solid production value and decent jokes to boot. As for what it is, well, it’s an adventure game starring these two offbeat characters. Sounds familiar, right?
If you didn’t grab these in a previous sale, now seems like a good time. I’d imagine the Sam & Max title is the only one that’ll make you feel cold on the inside if you happen to be a victim of a sound glitch or one of its lock-ups, the rest are great.
