Monkey Island is hailed as one of the few games in the world that successfully pulls the player in with a truly deep story and a rich world to explore. I cannot agree more and think that it truly is a shining example of gaming done right. Thankfully, Lucas Arts didn’t quit with one game and made sequel to the great adventure. LeChuck’s Revenge is almost every bit as exciting as the first one and now it has been brought over to the iPad.

But the developers didn’t stop there. Rather than porting the game over to the device in its original form, the developers completely reworked the art style of the game to provide much more detail and give it a much higher resolution. It looks great and plays even better. I cannot stress how amazing this series is and anyone who likes adventure games, this will easily be one of the best you will ever get on the device.

The story is great, voiceovers are great, and the humor is top-notch. The controls have been revamped for touchscreens are a definitely a welcome addition to an already great game. If you’ve never played this series, grab the lite version and try it out. You won’t be disappointed.
