    his game is good and deep. Also, the ghosts of the series' past are alive in this recreation, making it an easy pick-up for anyone who grew up with MI (or, strangely, are just now getting their start via rereleases). Check it out.

    Launch of the Screaming Narwhal gets this series rolling, but the next episode must come to the iPad to make this endeavor worthwhile.

    Monkey Island fans can breathe a sigh of relief - Monkey Island Tales 1 HD is a confident continuation of the franchise with unfortunately ropey controls.

    Episode 1 is a great set up for the series, introducing you to some returning regulars such as the helpful voodoo lady and new nemesis, the Marquis de Singe, who can best be described as a crazy french doctor who wants Guybrush's now cursed voodoo hand for his experiments.
