That is a steal!... I already have it and beat it twice now, once oldschool and once new version. By far one of THE BEST iPhone games of 09 hands down!

I guess nothing is sacred anymore...

So maybe there aren't any games that won't drop their prices. Everyone should get this game. It is really spectacularly funny and a little off the wall at times too. Guess I might have to join the legions of people waiting for sales for games, if this is going to be the way that premium games go as well.

It's not a price drop, only a limited sale this weekend. Either case I just hope they make enough money to continue the monkey island development.

Hmm, I presume you've never played an adventure game then? Adventure is about story, puzzles, exploration and conversation... Your only weapon is your wit?

its a great and above all a funny adventure with hilarious dialogues, nice graphics and a nostalgic value.

if you don't like games like this, you can of course buy something else. no one forces you to do otherwise.
