Licensed by Aspyr from LucasArts and converted to the Mac by Westlake Interactive, Escape from Monkey Island has been available for the Mac for a couple of months. It’s the latest chapter in the ongoing saga of Guybrush Threepwood, a wannabe pirate who just can’t seem to help getting involved in ridiculous situations, thanks to the vengeful ghost of the dread pirate LeChuck.
Some earlier installments of the Monkey Island series were available for the Mac, in sprite-based point and click 2D graphical adventures. This installment brings Monkey Island into the modern age, with colorful 3D rendered imagery and fancifully illustrated environments. The game features great voice acting, a funny story and snappy dialogue that’ll keep you on your toes for hours.
The demo itself is available in three different flavors. There’s a large 118MB download that comprises the “full” demo, with movies, music and voices. There’s also a more modestly sized 91MB “medium” demo that sports no movies, but includes music and voices. Finally, the 54MB “small” demo includes no movies, music or voices, but includes captions so you can read what’s going on as you play.
System requirements call for a G3/233MHz or faster; 3D hardware acceleration using an ATI RAGE Pro or better (3dfx Voodoo3 or better also included); 64MB RAM; 4MB VRAM; OpenGL 1.2.1.
