Quick - what has dozens of monkeys, ghost pirates galore and more insults than a cranky parrot? Why, The Curse of Monkey Island, of course! In this highly anticipated third installment to LucasArts' popular Monkey Island series of graphic adventures, Guybrush Threepwood once again takes up dull blade and rapier wit against the nefarious demon-pirate LeChuck. In Curse, Guybrush must save his one true love, Elaine Marley, from being turned into the evil pirate's zombie bride. But, hoping to marry Elaine himself, Guybrush unknowingly slips a cursed ring onto her finger that transforms her into a gold statue. He must then find a way to change Elaine back to her beautiful self and stop LeChuck from carrying out his sinister plans. Aye, 'tis a rollicking piratey adventure that's sure to challenge the mind and shiver a few timbers!
- Film quality animation, voice, sound and music - the undead come to life before your very eyes!
- Two difficulty settings: regular and Mega-Monkey (now with more puzzley goodness)!
- New and improved insults suitable for swordfights and other fun occasions!
- Vegetarian cannibals and a guy named Snugglecakes!
"...I barely escaped LeChuck's dreadful amusement park. I am now stuck in the middle of the sea, with nothing in my boat but a sausage and the diary I'm writing now. Oh my beloved Elaine, where are you?!.. If I only could hear your voice again, I'd die as a happy man..."
But not all is over, Guybrush Threepwood! The mighty pirate-wannabe from the first two games is back in his third adventure. And so is his archenemy LeChuck. Once again, Guybrush saves his beloved Elaine from the claws of his undead rival. In the midst of the treasure that belonged to the defeated fiend Guybrush finds a ring. Overwhelmed by his love to Elaine, he proposes marriage to her and gives her the ring. What he doesn't know is that the ring is cursed! Before he is able to realize what is happening, Elaine is turned into a gold statue. Will Guybrush be able to lift the curse and to save his one and only love?
This third installment of the legendary series features a similar kind of gameplay with wacky characters and insane puzzles. The interface is more simple and comfortable, and the graphics are now sharp, cartoon-style SVGA.
