I installed the ScummVM (Wikipedia) on my Android phone and put a couple of games on it: they work great.
The ScummVM was ported on a dizzying array of platforms and operating systems, including Android recently, by Angus Lees.
I have a lot of fantastic memories associated with the ScummVM, back when the days when adventure games were popular, and in particular, Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis, shown above on my Android phone. If you have never played any of the Monkey Island games, I strongly recommend spending $10 and downloading this new edition on Steam (Windows only, unfortunately). And for people who still enjoy the quirky humor and the overall relaxing and piratey impression that permeates the entire series, Lucas Arts is releasing a brand new Monkey Island game in the form of five short stories. I just started playing it but I have a feeling that the puzzles have taken a Myst-like tone that is going to be challenging but probably exhilarating to solve. I always seem to underestimate how much readers of this blog enjoy a good coding challenge. API clarity is not the only benefit of this approach, there is also the performance aspect. Since it’s not uncommon to have such parsing code in a loop, this can become a significant performance bottleneck.
The conclusion of this little drill is that if you are going to split strings repeatedly, you are better off compiling the regular expression yourself and use Pattern#split instead of String#split. We're going to have to brave those fearsome vegetarian cannibals again to get that banana picker. Dear Abandonia visitors: We are a small team that runs one of the largest DOS Games websites in the world. When LucasFilm Games (now called LucasArts) first started, it was small and consisted of only a few adventure games. The story is one of the best in the adventure game market, and I personally find it flawless.
The music in the game is wonderful, certainly worthy of a movie soundtrack or an Oscar nomination, even for midi music. The new additions -- that is, what makes the Special Edition special -- don’t alter the core game for better or worse. Secret of Monkey Island is an accessible point-and-click adventure title with genuine wit, a heaping of tacky humor and more than a few intelligent puzzles. Island, Escape from Monkey Island et Tales of Monkey Island (distribue par episodes et developpes par TellTales Games).
Critiques de diverses petites choses, films, livres, bandes dessinées, et promotion de textes personnels. For people not familiar with the ScummVM, it’s a virtual machine created by Ron Gilbert at Lucas Arts to factor out some of the tedium associated to the creation of adventure games in a library. A lot of them were incorrect (hey, if I throw a challenge, there has to be a trick), but I still want to congratulate everyone for playing the game and answering without testing the code first. First of all, the string confusion is pretty common (I’ve been tricked by it more than a few times myself).
I know how it is; I don't like it when I'm browsing a site and I accidentally trigger an awful flash ad where a big, freakish iPhone starts singing at me.

It'll set you back $7.99 (plus 351MB of space on your device) and sports the same fully voice-acted dialog and ability to swap between ye olde school and SE visuals on the fly as the PC and 360 versions. We have only 3 members of staff, but serve 450,000 users and have outgoing costs like any other top site for example: our servers, power, rent, programs, and staff. We are still doing our best to keep the site open and free and will appreciate your support to help it stay that way. When I first popped it into my CD drive, I figured it would be another average adventure that wouldn't be able to call itself better than Space Quest. In the game, you are Guybrush Threepwood, a simpleton who sets out on a mission to become a mighty pirate: the kind of man with a single eye and a knotty leg. Of course, the concept of virtual machines was not new even back then (around 1987) but the idea of creating such a machine for adventure games was quite innovative at the time and the VM was used in the following years to create about twenty different games. That's why here on the Let's Play Archive we'll only ever serve up nice banners that behave properly. Monkey Island 1 was the third adventure game by LucasArts, a game inspired by the Pirates of the Carribean Walt Disney World theme park ride.
It incorporated humor throughout the entire game, and anyone playing it will be laughing from the time they start the game to the time they finish it. It is the same as in the adventure games Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade and Zak McKracken and the Alien Mindbenders.
My personal favorites were the theme song played at the title screen, the song played when each of the new story parts screen comes up, and LeChuck's theme song.
It’s an intuitive system, but not a streamlined one, especially when navigating with a controller. It was created and designed by none other than the famous Ron Gilbert who went on to work on Sam and Max Hit the Road and Day of the Tentacle. You play the role of Guywood Threepbrush, uh, I mean, Guybrush Threepwood, a young boy who washes up on the shores of Melee Island, and decides he wants to become a pirate. The puzzles in the game are by no means easy, and should be a little difficult even for veterans of Sierra's games.
Steve Purcell, (creator and designer of the well-loved characters Sam, the Bogart speaking dog detective and Max, the hyper psychotic rabbity thing), also created some of the backgrounds and animations in this game. He finds the nearest pirate leaders, who just happen to be in the nearest bar drinking grog, and asks that they enlist him in their pirate crew.
There is a wide range of commands consisting of: Look, Walk, Pick up, Push, Pull, Turn on, Turn off, Give, Use, Open, Close, and Talk to. The graphics are simply stunning for the time it was made, and even for pixels, it borders on the realistic. Aside from the addition of atmospheric touches -- fluffy clouds, hulking ships, lush jungle foliage -- nothing has been critically altered. The fabulous music and theme songs were designed by the great and talented musicians of Earwax Productions.
They agree to do so on one condition - that he beats the three pirate trials which consist of: finding the Treasure of Melee Island, fighting the Sword master of Melee Island in a daring insult sword fighting duel, and stealing the sacred treasure out of the governor's mansion.

So as I find this game to be one of the greatest adventure games, I think it is especially deserving of a 100 score. I’m told to look around and watch a few games in action before the demonstration starts. It feels like, oddly enough, that you’re playing Secret of Monkey Island, not an enhanced version.
The LucasFilm company was the first to incorporate the SCUMM scripting system, which would later be followed by some of the greatest adventure games to hit the market: Broken Sword, Beneath a Steel Sky, and many more. Guybrush meets the governor, a beautiful and rich woman named Elaine Marley and falls head over heels in love. As in all adventure games, if you get stuck, search everywhere, talk to everyone, and try to pick up everything.
Another thing I liked about this game is the fact it doesn't have the annoying pixel hunt you normally see.
I see a man dressed as a Stormtrooper leaning against a wall in the back center of the room. But before he can do anything about it, she is kidnaped by an undead corpse pirate named LeChuck and his bony skeleton crew, and whisked away to their hideout under the cursed, cannibal-ridden Monkey Island. The cursor displays the name of the hotspot when it crosses over it, telling you where it is.
I approach him and ask if his feet hurt.Then, out of the corner of my eye, I see two demonstration kiosks.
If everyone reading this gave the price of a cup of coffee, our fundraiser would be made easier. He must get a crew together and rescue his damsel in distress before LeChuck makes her his bride. But, that’s just the first hour or so of the game, where essentially the writers convey all of the information about the island, items, and basic components.
None of the new bells and whistles impress me as much as the sheer faithfulness of the port, the obvious attention paid to the fine detail. Most findable quest items are strewn about the game’s landscape, carefully nestled in the most illogical corners.
Most characters don’t guide you to the next task or share locations of important places -- these things are left up to you to discover. Memories of Secret of Money Island are cemented in my brain, and my original experience with the title is intertwined with my gamer soul. This is an incredibly special game already -- a benchmark for future adventure titles -- made even more special for the current-generation player with new art, UI, sound, and voice acting.
