The Secret of Monkey Island: Special Edition on Steam

With formidable puzzles and insult sword fighting, being a pirate isn’t as easy as Guybrush Threepwood expects. This remastered edition is one way to rediscover a classic and bring the family along.

Genre: Classic adventure.
Platforms: PC.
Difficulty: Adventure games in the 80s and 90s were hard. Find hints online when you get stuck.
Content: There’s a fair bit of tongue in cheek ‘adult humour’ in the Monkey Island games, like ‘grog’; a deadly sounding drink for pirates.
Age-related suggestions: The action isn’t super fast. Probably more fun for families interested in the history of games.
