I need tips from Veterans of Monkey Island .... I purchased the 5 chapters from PSN and Im stuck wondering the jungle trying to find the treasurer .... I found it but nothing in it .... I have no clue what im doing and nothing is adding up . I don't want to look at a walk-though and waste 19 dollars .

Love some tips !! I'm extremely clueless to monkey Island . helpful tips would be great ... So far I am extremely confused about the game-play

    What would be the best TIP you can give me ? How to understand MI game-play

  • Telltale has a walkthrough here

    I'm not sure what part you're having trouble with.
    Here's some general hints for Monkey Island and other Adventure games:
    Talk to everyone, and go through each dialogue option.
    Examine everything in your inventory. Try to combine items with other items.
    Click on everything. Everything selectable either has a use or a joke tied to it.
    You may want to turn up the hint frequency. Whenever Guybrush says something on his own, that is a hint.

    A specific note, the jungle of Flotsam island is a bit crazy as one path will lead you back where you just were, like the Lost Woods in the Zelda series. You have to listen to use the treaure map.

  • use the cheese with jail carvings (under the cell windows). I would never of guessed that ... Where what did I miss here ? I had to go online to cheat ... Very confused as to why i would use Cheese on jail carvings .....

    how in the world was I supposed to know this !!


    EDIT this as well

    Use Hemlock’s map with altar ... Where did I get the impression I needed to do this ? game is confusing the hell out of me !


    Demo seemed like this game would be fun but now its 4 hours of mindless not understanding anything .... Sorry not hating on your game but I wished I kept hold of my 20 dollars .

  • When you open up the map, you can see an image of a hand holding the map to an alter and following the path to the treasure. To open the map, you need to open your inventory list and use the magnifying lens to examine it. I don't know the controls on the PS3 so it may be a button to press, but there may be a magnifying lens icon above where you can combine items.

    Sometimes the game will let you do something, even if the story doesn't have a definite reason yet. The eyes on the cheese wheel comes in later in the episode when you come across statues that you have to rotate parts on. One of the statues is missing the wheel to rotate eyes so you substitute it with the cheese wheel. The game usually doesn't want you to try something, have it not work, and later when you do need to do it, you'd think 'I tried that and it didn't work.'

  • And after you've been playing adventure games for a while, you get used to doing odd things. Once I had picked up the cheese wheel, I tried using it on the jail carvings just for the hell of it. Who knew it would be useful later?

    I never play these types of games I am always playing FPS and the closet Iv ever played to a RPG was Fallout Vegas :eek:

    I made it to chapter 4 and cheated one time in Chapter 3 and 1x in chapter 2 . I'm now stuck at the court case with the shot glasses glowing Leg and a stupid cat ... I got the glass-eye to work as I lucked out my pissing off the judge .

    I will not use the walkthrough but kinda confused after

    I got the shot glasses filled them up except one !

    Gave the Red eye to prisoner .

    Got monkey and used toy on him (?)

    Now I am just walking around trying to figure out what to do next ! Just a clue would be nice don't give it away .

  • Have you questioned Bosun Krebbs yet? There's a pretty good clue about what you have to do with the items you told us about (which I'm warning you will require a lot of trial and error to get right). Also, you may or may not want to look around for something to put in that last shotglass. Remember, there's hot fluids all over the harbor, plus one in the bar (not counting the shot you didn't drink).

    Oh, and when you think you can clear your name, make sure that you ask to go back to court from outside your cell. If you ask from inside, it'll cause a game-breaking bug.

  • really? what bug?


    Ahh, newcomers to adventure games. It makes me smile. :)
