  • I would also appreciate a gameplay video.

  • @Josejulio said: It is a shame that is not an universal app, pay once, play on ipad and iphone.

    I agree with you, it would be better as a universal app, and I would like someone to do a video review on the app, but Ive been reading alot of mixed reviews on the appstore

  • I just finished the game (at least the first chapter which so far is all there is) on my iphone 4s. The game played VERY smoothly and was absolutely beautiful. Could not tell a difference between PC version. The animations were flawless. I was especially impressed with the dialogue which sounds perfect and is exactly in sync with the animations. The only complaint I have is that the controls to touch on an Item or interact with object was a bit tricky since everything is so small, but you get used to it and after a couple of touches it works. Everything else is perfect. I really could not believe that you could play a game like this on iphone! I am not sure how to take a video of it. If someone could let me know, I would be happy to try it.

  • @Silverwolfpet said: I'm curious ^^ Can anyone post a quick gameplay vid? How do you access all the tiny details with your huge finger on the iPhone's screen?


    In response to the accessing objects, that is tricky. They added a wheel at the bottom of the screen that you can turn to select the different items that are selectable. You press the wheel to interact with the item. It is a bit tricky to get used to but it works and is only mildly frustrating at times. 90% of the time, it is not a problem.

  • Wow! Impressive!

    As for your question: if you have a video camera, or a good webcam, you can easily just film the screen for a minute or two, while playing the game.

  • Monkey Island for the iPhone is essentially the same as the rest of the ports to the series. I currently have the iPhone 4, not the new one and the game can sometimes be a little laggy, but I've experienced lagging issues on every first episode that I've played this game with on any device. So it's either my phone or the game. I'm assuming it's the game.
    Overal, the game is still just as fun, I just wish the lag issues would go away across every Episode 1 for every system that the game is on!!

  • Guys just letting you know that the 1st episode of Tales of Monkey Island on the IPhone has become FREE!!! Today, so grab it as soon as you can :)

  • This ran really well on my iphone 4 was quite surprised would have tought it ran badly since i don´t own a 4s

  • Darn my first gen ipod touch!

  • Anyone know when monkey island 4 is going to available for iphone. The first three came out really quickly - but now I am waiting, waiting, waiting - and can't wait much longer - I am having withdrawals. Such an great game.
