To celebrate the release of Monkey Island Tales HD Episodes 2 to 5, Telltale Games is gifting iPad gamers with episode 1 for free.

Anyone who has adventured with Guybrush Threepwood and his pirate cohorts before will know that they can expect plenty of dry humour and point-and-click-style puzzles in the first of the acclaimed episodic series.

Whilst the Tales series isn't as magical as the original two games, The Secret of Monkey Island and Monkey Island 2: LeChuck’s Revenge, we called the first game - Launch of the Screaming Narwhal - “a worthy next chapter” and gave it a creditable Bronze Award.

So put away your pieces of eight and download it while it’s still free, as this offer is for a limited time only.
