Guybrush Threepwood returns to the iOS platform; today, in fact, the news that of Monkey Island 2: LeChuck Revenge, the promised second story of the ramshackle pirate and his even more ramshackle happenings, has finally been released for Apple devices, keeping the promise and with a novelty: not only available for sale iPhone and also in iPad version in high definition
The event was very relevant and also highly anticipated by all fans of the series, many of whom were waiting with curiosity; the remake of The Secret of Monkey Island, a historic point and click adventure by LucasArts, divided the community of fans in two: on the one hand, those who had been fascinated by the idea of reliving the same emotions of the past with new graphics and remastered music; on the other, those who could not digest the new character design, believing that the original experience had been distorted. To try to please everyone, however, the developers have already thought of giving the possibility, at any moment of the game, to switch from the modern version to the classic one with a single touch. Or, in the case of the version for iPhone and iPod Touch, swiping two fingers on the screen.
In any case, Monkey Island: Special Edition has achieved considerable critical and public success, thus convincing LucasArts to also make and publish the remake of the second chapter of the series. Monkey Island 2 Special Edition: LeChuck's Revenge.
As expected, the game builds on the most appreciated elements of the previous chapter and preserves them, while some more or less relevant aspects have been revised and improved, including the game interface and the system of clues. Again the characters have been dubbed, while enormous work has been done to readjust the beautiful music. Needless to say, the humor remains the genuine and delusional one that characterized the old graphic adventures of LucasArts, such as Day of the Tentacle and Maniac Mansion. The Special Edition of Monkey Island 2: LeChuck Revenge available on both iPhone and iPod Touch and iPad, respectively at the price of € 5.99 and € 7.99, while for those wishing to try the game before buying it, the application is available Lite for both versions.
