  • Summary: Excellent game, along the line of Discworld. Great humor and good item puzzles. The only problems are 1. the protagonist is the stuffiest and perhaps lamest character in the entire game, 2. the game is rather short, and most importantly, 3.

  • Summary: The clues are vague and it was hard to complete the steps without cheats. I don't have a lot of time for games so my patience was limited.

  • Summary: Jolly Rover is a well-presented adventure game that sticks to the tried and true framework set out by Monkey Island all those year ago, and that is its biggest downfall. It has good voice-acting and graphics and good puzzle design. However, it is nothing adventure fans have not seen before.

  • Summary: This is a fun throwback to older adventure games. Not as complex or charming as some of the old greats, but a lot of fun nevertheless. For any fans of Monkey Island, Day of the Tentacle, etc, I'd definitely recommend it.

  • Summary: I got this game in one of those indie bundles, and was the only one in which I was willingly able to make it to the end. Obviously, it's not a serious game, it's just a quick one to tide you over for a few hours, but it was still really enjoyable and worth those few hours (6, according to Steam).

  • Summary: I've been playing installments of the series (am on 103 so far,) and apparently TT has addressed the technical concerns. I'm playing on a macbook without a 3-D card and only very basic software (Quicktime.) The operation of the game has been smooth with no lag in cursor movement.

  • Summary: This is the best Monkey Island tribute adventure game I've played - I enjoyed it even more than the Tales of Monkey Island series. The adventure interface is pretty slick (read: simple) and there's a nice hint system (parrot) that lets you determine how much you do or do not want to spoil yourself...

  • Summary: I downloaded this a few days ago from GH, and boy am I glad I did. We're in need of some good humor after lots of dark, brooding HO/adventure games. The 2D cartoonish atmosphere is well done (way colorful), the characters are "dog-gone" enjoyable, and the banter between them and the overall dialogue...

  • Summary: Good game, in terms of entertainment, puzzles and wit, it's just as good as the other monkey island games, the only negative I could find was controlling guybrush was just a real pain, you can't just click on the spot you want him to move to you have to shuffle him along with your mouse or touchpad...
