I loved the remake of the classic Lucasfilm game on the iPad.
The new graphics were cool, the new full voice work for every character was fitting and the touch screen interface that is really easy to use. The Scumm icons are along the bottom and tapping the screen interacts with the world.
All of the original goodness is still there, including the “Ask me about LOOM” dialogue. Swiping the screen switches instantly back to the original graphics and interface.
It is a fascinating journey helping Guybrush Threepwood on his quest to become a Pirate. From Insult Sword fighting to the funniest behind a wall robbery ever there are many classic moments to be had.
So after eight hilarious hours I became a pirate, found Monkey Island, saved the girl from the Ghost Pirate LeChuck and learned a life lesson (“Never pay more than $20 for a video game” )
