Tales of Monkey Island Episode 5: Rise of the Pirate God Now Available for iPhone and iPad

Posted by Carter Dotson on February 24th, 2012

Telltale Games has announced that the last episode of the Monkey Island Tales series is now available for iPad. The final episode in their revival of the classic adventure game series, Episode 5 – Rise of the Pirate God, has players controlling Guybrush Threepwood and his friends again, as they try to take down his longtime nemesis LeChuck, who is now voodoo-powered. Oh dear, this does not look good for Guybrush Threepwood, who came down with a woeful malady in episode 4 called ‘death’ that he is apparently recovering from in this final episode. Those who haven’t checked out the series yet can check out Episode 1 – Launch of the Screaming Narwhal for the low, low price of free on iPhone and iPad. As well, the rest of the series is now on sale for $2.99, including this latest episode in the franchise. iPhone 4S owners will be glad to know that they will have Retina Display support on their device; older devices will get lesser graphics to ensure performance.

Telltale Brings Monkey Island Tales Series to iPad. The Whole Thing.

Posted by Carter Dotson on June 24th, 2011

Ahoy, ye mateys! Telltale Games' revival of the classic Monkey Island adventure game series, Monkey Island Tales HD, is now available on iPad. Featuring legendary protagonist Guybrush Threepwood, these games continue the kind of offbeat humor that the original games were known for. Developed in conjunction with LucasArts, and designed to stay true to the Monkey Island aesthetic, Telltale's games put the player in control of Guybrush, trying to stop the undead pirate and long-time nemesis LeChuck, as well as trying to cure a voodoo curse he accidentally unleashed upon the Caribbean while trying to stop LeChuck. Whoops.

Now, when I say the series is now available on the iPad, I don't just mean one entry, with more entries to come later; I mean the whole series is now available on iPad! Starting today, parts one through five are all available for purchase on the iPad for $6.99 each. This means that players can check out the series at their own pace, try out the series and quit playing if they get bored, or pick up from a specific episode if they've played other episodes before.

But what about people who haven't played the Monkey Island Tales games at all? Like people who are familiar with the classic games that Tim Schafer had a hand in, but are skeptical about the new series' faithfulness? Or what about the people who need an introduction to the series that's more than just what a short lite version would provide? Well, Telltale Games has decided to give these people a great deal, as episode one is available for free! That's right, the whole first episode is available for free, no gimmicks. This will only be free through July 22nd, before it goes back up to normal price, so act quickly, or else there won't even be a lousy t-shirt to be had!
