Applelinks Previews Escape From Monkey Island
10:08 AM | Eddie Park | Comment on this story
Applelinks' Kirk Hiner recently posted a preview of the upcoming port of LucasArts
title Escape From Monkey Island. EFMI is the 4th installment in the Monkey Island series of popular graphic adventures that lean heavily on puzzle solving, high adventure and low comedy. This sequel is being ported to the Mac OS by Westlake Interactive and will be published by Aspyr Media.
Besides detailing the background story, Hiner points out a couple of lesser-known features for this title. One
of the more interesting features (particularly for a graphic adventure) is that the game has game pad support for those
that prefer it. The game interface itself also seems to be character-based, rather than cursor-based:
Rather than by moving a cursor around the screen,
gamers explore the environment by spinning Guybrush around. When he's facing something that can
be used or examined, text appears at the bottom of the screen saying so. The gamer then choses to
look at, take, or use the object of interest.
For more first impressions on the game, be sure to read Hiner's full preview. The Mac version
of Escape From Monkey Island is scheduled to be released sometime this month, courtesy of Aspyr Media.
