This is where the remake, The Secret of Monkey Island: Special Edition, comes in and it falls to me to see if Monkey Island is still a good game by today's standards.
Diving in for the first time is great - it starts off showing the old school loading image, then gently overlays and replaces it with the new graphics. The plot of the game is based around a lanky lad with pale skin and long blonde hair who looks like he could be a sterotypical viking if only he wasn't so scrawny. Scooting around Melee Island to do the quests is plenty fun, with the random twists and turns of any typical adventure game thrown in the mix - although nothing too convoluted to stop a player progressing. The writing is certainly continually humorous, but only rarely laugh out loud funny if I'm totally honest.
Despite the graphical overhaul the animation is still pretty rough in the remastered mode, to the point where it looks just awkward in some scenes because the characters don't move their hands when they talk or have any decent idle animations. Characters who don't move their arms when they talk look fine when everything is all pixellated and indistinct, but when the image is stylised and crisp, it falls into the uncanny valley a tiny bit.
LucasArts teve uma carreira de tres decadas como um desenvolvedor, editor e licenciador de jogos. Portanto, este post cai bem para homenagear essa empresa que com grande nostalgia nos apresentou a jogos que ficarao marcados para a eternidade! O jogo,  em uma  ficcional do Caribe, em uma epoca em que piratas navegaram os mares, e voce acompanha a saga de  Guybrush para se tornar um pirata, e encontrar o tesouro de Monkey Island, e ainda resgatar o Governador Elaine Marley do mal – e ganhar seu coracao. Em Maniac Mansion, jogamos com um  Dave adolescente que deve se aventurar pela  mansao para resgatar sua namorada de um cientista louco. X-Wing era a nave da alianca rebelde, e as TIE Fighters eram as naves do imperio de STARWARS. The Secret of Monkey IslandOne of the most famous adventure games ever made is The Secret of Monkey Island, created by Ron Gilbert of LucasArts, a recently defunct studio that pioneered the genre.
LucasArts’ first adventure game was Labyrinth, although they were then called Lucasfilm games.
When it was first announced that Disney had bought up Lucasfilm, I was very excited about how the two biggest names in film had joined together and what this would mean for their game studios, particularly concerning how well Disney treat their properties, I was hoping that there would be some renewed interest in some of the properties that had now come into their care, such as Monkey Island and Day of the Tentacle. Unfortunately this never came to pass as Disney appear to have decided to go the way of their own game studios and shut them down, so in memoriam, and also because it was already on my list, I decided I would play The Secret of Monkey Island, which I have never played before. I have the remastered Special edition that is available on Steam however, I played through the original mode on it.
It wasn’t until the end of the game when the credits were rolling that I noticed Orson Scott Card had written all of the swordplay insults, which I never knew.
The game’s dialogue was written by Tim Schafer and some other people and is the best thing about the game, you can choose the fairly standard dialogue options or can go for some fourth-wall breaking answers or just really sarcastic retorts.
My favourite character is Stan the ship merchant, the entire segment of buying the ship was completely pointless and time-consuming, which I found hilarious. There are lots of in-game jokes and references, for example at the beginning of the game there is a pirate in the bar that starts going off on an advertising reel for a game and there are lots of allusions to LucasArts games.

When I got to the end of the game there was one thing that I kept thinking about, waiting for the answer.
Some of the puzzles can be a little unintuitive but the witty dialogue and the beautiful graphics really set this game apart from the types of adventure I usually play. Now you can upload screenshots or other images (cover scans, disc scans, etc.) for The Secret of Monkey Island (CD DOS VGA) to Emuparadise. You will need to login to your EP account (it's free) to submit tags and other game information. If you know the best emulator for this game, please suggest an emulator above to help out other users. I don't mean that in the sense that my facial hair isn't fluffy like a kitten, but more that I'm not a big Monkey Island fan-boy. Remakes are often regarded as being the spawn of Satan of course, as they bastardise the original to conform to new trends in gameplay. His name is Guybrush Threepwood and at the start of the game all we know about him is that he has come to Melee Island, deep in the Carribbean, because he wants to be a pirate. The puzzles aren't hugely taxing (though Joe would claim otherwise, having taken five years to finish the game the first time around) and see you getting involved in all sorts of escapades on your pirate-y endeavour. While I thought the voice acting was pretty well done too, it's likely that fans of the original will likely claim otherwise and fall in to the the-book-is-better-than-the-film syndrome. It feels like Lucasarts is trying to take the remake far enough to interest fans of the original game, but doesn't want to risk losing them by moving too far from the source. Na quarta-feira, a Disney anunciou que estaria destivando a  LucasArts como um estudio e editora, mudando o foco da empresa para a distribuicao de licencas para conteudo da Lucasfilm.
A empresa teve uma historia marcante, primeiro na criacao de algumas dos mais memoraveis jgos de aventura  e por publicar e produzir diversos jogos relacionados a serie StarWars. E frequentemente considerado como um dos mais bem sucedidos jogos de aventura, combinando uma historia criativa, o dialogo hilariante, e personagens memoraveis??, como Guybrush Threepwood e seu inimigo, o pirata LeChuck. O jogo tambem foi refeito em 2009 para consoles e tablets, a nova versao contou com arte atualizada e dublagem. O jogo foi a primeira incursao da LucasArts em jogos Point-and-click, e exigiu o desenvolvimento de um motor para executa-lo. O jogo foi concebido  por Ron Gilbert, que aparentemente usou o layout do Rancho Skywalker como inspiracao para a instalacao da casa. Labyrinth was based on the film of the same name and is known for having Douglas Adams contribute to the design of the game. Whether it’s because it is an early title or not I noticed how arbitrarily linked some of your actions have to be to solve certain puzzles and so at times did become a little stuck. There are a lot of NPCs in the game and as you learn how to swordfight there are encounters with people in between screens on the map.
It all provides for some interesting banter that can make the game extremely replayable to see how another choice might have affected things.

Guybrush's desire to become a swashbuckling pirate gets him more adventure than he bargained for. Fortunately, you don't have to grab a Wiimote and dance around like an idiot, or spend obscene amounts of cash on a new graphics card for this. It's like they do on CSI - magically increasing the resolution and adding pixel fidelity on an image - zoom and enhance! Guybrush gets a stint in the Circus, acquires free T-Shirts, learns a load of witty insults and wins the heart of the lady Governess - though only moments before she gets spirited away by the spirit of the pirate captain Lechuck, whose ghost haunts the sea and has kept all the local pirates land-locked. For us lazier people, the voices are a welcome addition and mostly fit the characters, however I personally can't say I enjoy the voice of Guybrush that much - he just doesn't seem to fit well - especially when compared to other strong adventure game male leads like George Stobart from Broken Sword.
The reason for this seems to be that they have identical animations to the original version, just with redone artwork, which kind of suggests that Lucasarts didn't take the graphical overhaul far enough.
It's a commendable aim in some respects, I suppose - but as a newcomer to the game I'd really like to see a Remastered version that looked a bit more natural and leave the Retro mode for those who just want to bask in nostalgia. In this respect LucasArts have helped to give the games industry a boost in credibility amongst a wider audience by involving staple sci-fi names.
Fortunately this version has a hint button that I used a couple of times when I had no idea what I was meant to do, UN-fortunately it was pretty useless, often giving me irrelevant location specific advice. In fact, I half expected there to be some sort of thing I had ruined or glitched out when playing this, but it’s an incredibly solid game.
Monkey Island: Special Edition offers an optional graphical overhaul and interface (plus a few other bits, like spoken dialogue), but the actual content is the same as before - to the point where it clearly references the original even as you load the game. After chatting to the three commodores, Guybrush gets sent on three quests of pirate-esque calibre - dig up some loot, steal some loot and learn how to sword fight - or, well, insult sword fight.
The good news is that you can easily turn on subtitles and cancel the volume, or just switch between Retro and Remastered mode at any point just by pressing F10. I wonder if this version has had to be altered much to fix things that could have caused issues in the original release? It's not that I dislike the genre though - I actually loved the Broken Sword games, for example. It is the first game in the much loved Monkey Island franchise, and one of the most influencial PC adventure games. It's just that I could never be bothered with all that reading and Monkey Island pre-dated most of the 'talkie' adventure games by a few years.
During his stay on Melee Island, Guybrush seeks the advice of pirate captains in the SCUMM Bar (named after Gilbert's SCUMM game engine) of how to become a pirate.
The quests are just the tip of the iceberg as Guybrush eventually tackles the fearsome ghost pirate LeChuck and travels to the secluded Monkey Island.
