59p sales and updates for Monkey Island 1 and 2 on iPhone and iPad
How appropropriate, these games are awesome
It's all going off on in the Caribbean this morning. Following this week's news of a remarkably generous 59p sale on Monkey Island 2 Special Edition: LeChuck's Revenge, three more coconut-shaped news bombs have detonated.
The first is that The Secret of Monkey Island Special Edition has joined its sequel at the frankly preposterous price of 59p, meaning if you run to the App Store now you can pick up both games for under £1.20.
The second is that Monkey Island 2 Special Edition: LeChuck's Revenge has received a 1.1 update, bringing with it a number of tweaks and improvements, including iPhone 4 and fourth generation iPod touch Retina display support.
Timing delays for certain puzzles have also been adjusted, credits sequences have been added to the classic 16-bit graphics version, and a synching issue with the bone dance sequence has been fixed.
Finally, the iPad version of Monkey Island 2 Special Edition, LeChuck's Revenge has received a price cut, from £5.99 down to £2.99.
Both Monkey Island games got a perfect Pocket Gamer Platinum Award when they were reviewed. Only three other iPhone games have done the same.
