Favourite puzzle from the previous MI games?

posted by Toothless Gibbon on - last edited - Viewed by 1.2K users

I have to say that, despite the twisted logic of it all, my fav is actually the Monkey Wrench puzzle from MI2!

Depite it being very frustrating, I probably got more satisfaction from solving that one puzzle alone after being stuck for weeks! (can't remember if it was a try-everything-on-everything affair or a moment of genius, but I like to think the latter!)

Whats yours?

    That puzzle took me soo long to do and wasnt a favourite

    My fave was monkey komb...ok ok i cant lie that bad. My favourite puzzle was probably the Goodsoup family crypt, i thought it was class

  • I love the puzzle from the end of Monkey Island 2, running around trying to make the voodoo doll.

    Oh, and also I always liked the puzzle in SMI with the grog mugs. Oh! OH! And the plank and the seagull.

    Aaaah, and the secret code to get into the club in MI2.

    So many. That special edition better come out soon so I can replay it.

  • I like the Rum Rogers Jr-puzzle from MI2.

  • def something from MI3, which i think had the most stimulating puzzles. the goldtooth is def a favourite.

  • MI3 gold tooth was genius.

    But the Hand Signals one from MI2 on Phatt Island was pretty good.
