The Secret of Monkey Island: Special Edition iPhone on sale until Monday

Being stingy sorts, scraping along on journalist wages, we love a good sale at Pocket Gamer.

When that sale involves one of only three iPhone games to have received a 10 out of 10 Platinum Award from us, we’re doubly excited.

The Secret of Monkey Island: Special Edition can currently be snapped up for 50 per cent less than the original price - that’s £2.39/$2.99, if you missed the headline. You’d better hurry, though, because the offer ends on Monday.

Monkey Island is the king of the all-but-defunct point ‘n’ click adventure genre (though there are signs of a resurgence) and this revamped iPhone release is one of the best versions on the market. If you demand mind-warping puzzles and razor-sharp wit in your games, well, you really should have it by now.

Our own Rob Hearn was so excited by the news that, in a bout of Guybrush Threepwood-like idiocy, he vowed to buy it again. (You write like a dairy farmer - ed.)
