Nice to see the iPad getting some Monkey Island love. However, is the iphone version going to receive an updated control scheme as well? I doubt it but you never know.

Arrggh.... Probably worth it just for the updated control scheme - almost impossible to play with the old controls - for some reason especially hard on the iPad...

Well, now I can play MI1 or 2, on whatever device I happen to have on me...


On a side note - the iPad game is about 1/2 the size of the iPhone game 355 Mb for the iPhone and 186 Mb for the iPad game - I wonder what got compressed... hopefully there is not a lot of missing / or substantially compressed music / voices...

The file itself is just compressed, this of it was a RAR file. When it unpacks the actual size of the game is larger. This is to bring faster downloads through the itunes store.

Monkey Island 2 was recently updated for the iphone to include retina display and of course add the old intro and credits into the game. I noticed a lot more space being used when I transferred the new update. The ipad version contains the director's commentary so I wouldn't worry about the reduced file size, its just compression before unpacking.

Will the iPhone version ever get updated controls too? It really sucks at the moment.

What can you do? I have it on at least 3 platforms - I think PS, PC, iPhone, and now iPad - but it is such a classic - the music is great, the expressions are priceless - but yeah.... If is comes out for the 3DS that is where I am drawing the line....
