  • Conclusion: Adventure games have been going through a mini renaissance of late and we can all thank Telltale for its massive contribution in bringing puzzling back from the dead and treating the genre with the love and respect is has duly deserved. With Tales of Monkey Island: Launch of the Screaming Narwhal the Telltale team has outdone themselves: a true return to form for the series and an unmissable title that we think everyone must own.

  • Excerpt: The good burghers of GameBoomers have previously reviewed the separate chapters of Tales of Monkey Island , and all in all they found it a rollicking, piratey jaunt. The feel of the old was there, spruced up with some new, and as far as they were concerned it did the franchise proud. Now we have all five chapters on a single disc, with no waiting for the next one to release. So what of it all in one bite?

Tales of Monkey Island

  • Excerpt: Ah, the point-and-click adventure game. The mere mention of that long-neglected genre brings back memories of a time when Lucasarts had more in their stable than Star Wars and Indiana Jones. A time when games were about linear progression, and having endless storage space in your trousers, and sliding the mouse cursor over the right pixel in order to solve the puzzle, and… monkeys.

  • Excerpt: Jolly Rover is an indie point-and-click adventure game created by Andrew Goulding of Brawsome. This is the first commercial game released by his company. Taking place in the Caribbean, Jolly Rover will immediately feel familiar to seasoned adventure game fans. This is because comedic pirate adventures are a popular theme within the genre.

Jolly Rover (PC)

  • Excerpt: Point and click adventure games have been dead for ages. People only talk about them in hushed tones, often with a tear in their eye. Often you read articles about what killed them, and why they will never come back. What rubbish! It’s up to brilliant one man shows like Brawsome to show these fools just how great the genre is, and how much fun a little adventuring can be!

Jolly Rover

5 July 2010
  • Excerpt: With the recent revival of the point-and-click adventure genre, it’s hard to ignore the influence that some classic games have had on the more recent installments. A good example of this is Jolly Rover , an independent game for the PC and Mac recently released on Steam. With a 2D art style, island setting, and more pirates than you can shake a cutlass at, Jolly Rover was clearly inspired by the early Monkey Island games.
