    Tales of Monkey Island: Chapter 1 is a humorous point-and-click adventure much like Telltale Games' previous offerings. The gameplay and controls are well done. However, the graphics are slighty outdated yet colorful and the frame rate suffers just a bit. Load times are slightly longer than desired but I can live with that. All in all, Launch of the Screaming Narwhal is a solid Tales of Monkey Island: Chapter 1 is a humorous point-and-click adventure much like Telltale Games' previous offerings.

  1. While there is no clear ending to The Screaming Narwhal, it is a fun tale that shouldn’t be missed by any fans of old point and click style games.
  2. The game controls flawlessly, especially with the addition of manual movement, and is another worthy entry in the Monkey Island series.
  3. This humorous and enjoyable adventure is seaworthy, despite some visual choppiness.
