In The Secret Of Monkey Island, you take on the role of young Guybrush Threepwood, who wants to become mighty pirate, and strike it rich. You have found your way to Mêlée Island, and will seek out the local pirate leaders in order to full-fill your destiny of becoming a world-renowned swashbuckler. The pirates will send you off to pass the three trials. You will need to become a master of the sword (which somehow is more about mastering insults, than actual sword fighting), you must prove yourself as a thief, and you must find a hidden treasure.

Along the way, you encounter several interesting characters, the most notable of whom is Elaine, the current governor of the island. You immediately fall for her charms, but as you also learn from encountering other inhabitants, another one of Elaine's suitors is the late evil pirate LeChuck, who made Monkey Island his home.

When you have finished the trials, you just about see LeChucks' ship sail off into the distance, and the lookout informs you that he has kidnapped Elaine. You will have to figure out a way to get your hands on a ship and a crew, so you can rescue her from LeChuck. Once you gathered a trustworthy crew and a ship, you then make your way to Monkey Island, where with the help of a castaway, a small handful of monkeys, and a local tribe of cannibals, you find the means to defeat LeChuck.


Please note the purchase link is to the Special Edition; a updated version of the game from 2019. The original EGA and VGA versions can be found as updates of this resource.


An on-line copy of the Dial A Pirate code wheel can be found here: https://www.oldgames.sk/codewheel/secret-of-monkey-island-dial-a-pirate. Alternatively, you can run the runme.exe file from the zipfile, which will allow any input to be interpreted as if you properly found the correct year.

The Scumm Engine used by LucasArts for their adventures (like Maniac Mansion, Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, Loom, and Zac McCracken and the Alien Mindbenders) was altered to allow for a default action on specific objects (Like right-clicking a door will typically lead to the door being opened, anbd right-clicking a person will engage that person in a conversation). Further enhancements include the removal of the "What is" option, and simply displaying information when you hover your mouse over an object.

*** Hotkeys
Hotkeys, for those who prefer not to use the mouse too much:

[Q] Moves the inventory up
[A] Moves the inventory down
[W] Walk to
[S] Push (Move things clockwise)
[E] Close
[F] Turn Off
[T] Talk to
[G] Give
[Y] Pull (Move anti-clockwise)
[N] Turn on
[U] Use
[O] Open
[L] Look At
[P] Pick up

Quit game: CTRL+C (Ega version) or CTRL + Q (VGA version)
F5 to save/load games.

For dialogue options, you can also use numbers 1-6 to pick the line with that number.

*** Sword fighting insults
Below you will find the insults, and their proper responses.

This is the END for you, you gutter-crawling cur!
I've got a long, sharp lesson for you to learn today.
A: And I've got a little TIP for you. Get the POINT?

Soon, you'll be wearing my sword like a shish kebab!
My tongue is sharper than any sword
A: First you'd better stop waving it like a feather-duster.

My handkerchief will wipe up your blood.
My name is feared in every dirty corner of this island
A: So you got that job as janitor, after all.

People fall at my feet when they see me coming.
My wisest enemies run away at the first sight of me!
I usually see people like you passed-out on tavern floor.
A: Even BEFORE they smell your breath?

I once owned a dog that was smarter than you.
Only once have I met such a coward!
A: He must have taught you everything you know.

You make me want to puke.
If your brother's like you, better to marry a pig.
A: You make me think somebody already did.

Nobody's ever drawn blood from me and nobody ever will!
No one will ever catch ME fighting as badly as you do.
A: You run THAT fast?

You fight like a dairy farmer!
I will milk every drop of blood from your body!
A: How appropriate, you fight like a cow!

I got this scar on my face during a mighty struggle!
My last fight ended with my hands covered with blood.
A: I hope now you have learned to stop picking your nose.

Have you stopped wearing diapers yet?
I hope you have a boat ready for a quick escape
A: Why, did you want to borrow one?

I've heard you are a contemptible sneak.
My sword is famous all over the Caribbean!
A: Too bad no one's ever heard of YOU at all.

You're no match for my brains, you poor fool.
I've got the courage and skill of a master swordsman.
A: I'd be in real trouble if you ever used them.

You have the manners of a beggar.
Every word you say to me is stupid.
A: I wanted to make sure you'd feel comfortable with me.

I'm not going to take your insolence sitting down!
You are a pain in the backside, sir!
A: Your hemorrhoids are flaring up again, eh?

There are no words for how disgusting you are.
There are no clever moves that can help you now.
A: Yes, there are. You just never learned them.

I've spoken with apes more polite than you.
Now I know what filth and stupidity really are.
I usually see people like you passed-out on tavern floor.
A: I'm glad to hear you attended your family reunion.
