Atari ST version is a poor conversion of the PC. Simple graphics, awful sound, quite slow sometimes.. seems like an amateurs job. The Amiga version on the other hand is much much better. I played Amiga version (finished) and ST version almost finished it. Nice puzzles, nice plot, a very funny game... I still remember finishing Monkey Island on my Amiga,the scene that asks u what u have to say after all.. answer I never gonna pay again 15 $ for a Lucas game hahaha Smiley

At least its there to remid the good old days Smiley

Considered to be an alltime classic on any plattform

I personally just don't get the point! That sort of humour is not mine - and if you don't get that, the puzzles make no sense.

As usual, Lucasfilm didn't spend much effort on the Atari ST conversion. As a result, unlike the Amiga conversion, it was given the EGA-graphics and basically only a YM version of the PC speaker soundtrack.

The EGA-graphics however have been made by Marc Ferrari (see Loom). Since EGA is bad on dark scenes, the graphics for Melee Island are a bit poor, but the later, more colourful graphics on Monkey Island are pretty good.

The game shows an animated intro screen and plays better on accelerated machines (16MHz).

Who doesn't know the stupid Guybrush Threepwood who is able to hold his breath for 10 minutes? If you don't, just have a look behind you, there is a monkey with three heads... For beginners, you will have to lead Guybrush Threepwood and help him to become a terrific pirate.

Like Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade and Loom, graphics of the Secret of Monkey Island are like a cartoon and it's very pleasing to play.

Unfortunately, the sounds are little low in quality, but they don't distract from keeping your intested in the game

You play with the mouse via a menu on-screen.

If you have never heard of Monkey Island, it's because you were living on another planet. Guybrush Threepwood has starred in 4 adventures in Monkey Island (only one on the Atari ST). If you want to play a funny, crazy game then I recommend that you play the Secret of Monkey Island, you won't regret it!
