Prior to the release of Return to Monkey Island it had been over a decade since the previous Monkey Island game and more than three since the last one for which series creator Ron Gilbert was at the helm. As a result, fans of classic point-and-click adventure games everywhere could hardly contain their excitement when Gilbert announced the project back in April of 2022.

Return to Monkey Island arrived just a little over five months later and was widely praised by both critics and players upon its release. With a Metacritic score of 88 and strong user reviews across the board, it’s now widely regarded as being one of the long-running series’ greatest installments, and for very good reason. It offers a modern take on a classic formula, without losing the charm or humor for which the franchise is so beloved.

  • Getting Started in Return to Monkey Island

    When compared to its predecessors, Return to Monkey Island is a very beginner-friendly game. The puzzles are a lot less cryptic than the ones found in earlier Monkey Island titles and the game’s opening section does a pretty good job of teaching players about its controls and core mechanics. That said, there are one or two things that the game doesn’t make entirely clear. This section of the guide will look to fill in some of those gaps with helpful tipsas well as answer some of the most frequently asked questions about the game.

  • Return to Monkey Island Story Walkthrough

    Clocking in at under ten hours, Return to Monkey Island is a fairly short game when all’s said and done, but that’s not to say that its story isn’t still incredibly enjoyable. Made up of five parts and a prologue, the narrative sees Guybrush reliving the story of the secret of Monkey Island, with plenty of fan-favorite characters showing up along the way. This section of the guide will include story walkthroughs for every part of the game, as well as a few smaller guides explaining how to solve individual puzzles and how to see every possible ending.

  • Collectibles & Achievements in Return to Monkey Island

    Return to Monkey Island only really has one collectible set, which comes in the form of Trivia Cards. There are one hundred of them in total, with players needing to answer a Monkey Island-themed question for each one that they find. There are also a few item sets that are connected to achievements, including skulls, rare booksand maps. This section of the guide will explain where to find them, while also covering a selection of miscellaneous achievements that don’t feature in the main story walkthrough.
