I got this game for 99 cents but it is definitely worth at least $6 if not the original $8. I can't believe people are giving this incredible app 1 star ratings! I can understand a few 3s from people who are still having problems with their saving ability, but I haven't had a single crash and I'm already on my second time through. I can't believe that people still haven't figured out that when you download ANY new game you should reboot the device before playing! I have gotten in that habit and haven't had a single crash from any new apps, even ones that most everyone claim to be really buggy.
As for the game itself, it is better than the first. The voice acting is brilliant, the story is engaging and the new controls are much better than the first game's. I love the transition between old and new version. I plan to play through again using only the old interface.
By the by, if you whiners really want an update to fix your problems with crashes and saves... STOP giving such low scores. If lucasarts thinks people don't like their product, the aren't likely to put in the time to fix problems. They'll just put their time and resources into the games people are interested in.
Great Game - stop posting irrational one star reviews!
Like most people who downloaded the last update, my game data was erased; but this supposed to be a review of the GAME, not a forum for expressing displeasure (however warranted) resulting from a flukey issue with the last update. I literally have watched this game fall from 4 stars to 2-1/2 in one days time. That is ridiculous as the quality of the game has not changed, in fact it got better (if you have an iPhone 4) with the retina graphics update.
This game is fantastic. If you are a fan of the classic lucasarts adventure games you can not go wrong. They took a classic and improved on it greatly. The graphics are beautiful, the game is fully voice acted, and (with the exception of the update issue) there are no glitches in performance whatsoever. I don't know how long the price will remain at 99 cents, but that is a steal for a complete game that is even better than the pc version you remember. If you liked monkey island back when (or sam and max, the loom, etc.), disregard all of the ridiculous one star reviews and buy this game.
Oh, and to those posting one star reviews, that's what the "report a problem" button is for at the bottom of the screen.
Great game, minor glitch
First, there still seems to be a glitch on some devices to where it kicks you back to menu after "Well, well, well...Guy-" at the very beginning. This is NOT just because the device is being held incorrectly. This is happening even in landscape mode. Apparently not everyone has this glitch, but I did. I somehow got past this by manually saving the game when it kicked me out and rebooting the entire device forcing it to load after the "wells". After that it works beautifully. Just a common sense troubleshooting step!
The new innovative touch very nicely works for the "point & click" style. Even the tilt to access menu pause was a pleasant surprise that just seems to fit.
If I must find any flaw with the special edition, it might be that some voices aren't what I had imagined. Since I just bought this game, I have not suffered a save game loss.
If you like Monkey Island or just like this type game this is a MUST buy!
The game itself is NOT deserving the bad ratings because people got their saved games erased. Rate the GAME and not your annoyance with a programmer.
