Btw, IIRC monkey island 1 is the only monkey in wich you die (-at the canon screen- not counting false death of CMI) am i wrong ?
You are wrong. Kind of.
If you wait 10 mins during the second spit puzzle in Monkey 2 , Guybrush and Wally are killed and you are rewarded with an amusing sequence in which Elaine points out that Guybrush couldn't have died because he's right there talking to her.
Wow. I just wasted my first post by being a know-it-all.
