    I haven't played a game with so illogical puzzles as in this one.
    The best thing is, it has a solution button and you'll find yourselves spamming it. Your other option is try everything on everything. To me, this high_score is because of pure nostalgia.

    Playing this adventure will take you back to a simpler, more innocent time before games needed to bash us over the head with ultra violence to get our attention. They definitely don't make 'em like this anymore.

    If you cut your teeth on, say, Telltale's various Sam & Max or Strong Bad series, you're about to find out exactly what a hardcore adventure game plays like.
  3. Monkey Island Special Edition is the well done remake of a classic game. The controls may not be perfect, but the graphics and sound make up for it.
