Let’s Play the Secret of Monkey Island, Final Part


We last saw our soon to be pirate and hero, Guybrush Threepwood, facing down the villainous ghost pirate LeChuck, who was in the process of forcing himself on the lovely Governor of Melee Island, Elaine Marley.
Threepwood had just issued his ultimatum to LeChuck and was preparing to soak the specter in sarsaparilla:

Secret of Monkey Island Secret of Monkey Island
Secret of Monkey Island Secret of Monkey Island

I’m just as confused as they are…

Secret of Monkey Island Secret of Monkey Island Secret of Monkey Island
Secret of Monkey Island Secret of Monkey Island Secret of Monkey Island

That’s exactly what I want to know!

Secret of Monkey Island Secret of Monkey Island Secret of Monkey Island
Secret of Monkey Island Secret of Monkey Island

“Breathe LeChuck… You’re going to have an aneurysm”

Secret of Monkey Island

Bang up job Threepwood…

Okay, NOW it’s the denouement?

“Well, there really wasn’t anything ELSE to do…”

“Enough talk! Have at you!”

It’s all fun and games until someone breaks out the root beer.

That’s going to leave a mark.

This is the part of the game where Guybrush gets his ass kicked up, down, and all around Melee Island.

There is no denouement

Finally, LeChuck punches Guybrush over to Stan’s, right into the Grog machine:

“Now really isn’t a good time Stan. See, this vengeful ghost is beating the life out of me right now, and I just don’t have the energy or the mental faculties to listen to another terrible sales pitch.”

“That’s REALLY not a good idea Stan!”

“I tried to tell you…”

“LeChuck I really am okay with you beating up Stan some more. Why waste all your energy literally beating the shit out of just one person?”

Thinking quickly Guybrush grabs a bottle of root beer grog and uses it on LeChuck!

It doesn’t translate well into screenshots but rest assured that LeChuck exploded into a spectacular ball of ectoplasm and root beer. Guaranteeing that Guybrush is going to need to have all his clothes dry cleaned.

Happy Endings?

The energy released from LeChuck’s redeath seems to have turned into fireworks? Sure, why not?

This is the big moment Guybrush! This is your chance to get the girl and give her a big wet sloppy kiss of true love!

He’s a model gamer? (I wish that was more of a joke than it is…)

He’s totes fine!

Threepwod, I don’t know how much you know about wooing a woman (I’m an expert), but you don’t do it with random non sequiturs about creepy half naked castaways!

See? Also fine!

Oh, there’ll be plenty of that in the future too!

There are no happy endings


Hands down the most fleshed out and realistic portrayal in this game.

A bunch of people you’ve never heard of and one bigot you have heard of.

A lot more actual people you’ve never heard of and two non actual “people” you have.

No one played Loom (check out Leigh Alexander’s video let’s play of it here

I’m sure you can find it on CD

I thought monetizing and licensing was what LucasArts was good at?

Sorry Guybrush. Some guys just don’t have any luck. Did we ever figure out what exactly the Secret of Monkey Island was?

Thanks for reading, sorry it took so long, hope you enjoyed it. Don’t know when I’ll do another. Now get out!

  1. Bringing up creepy half-naked castaways is totes the best way to woo a woman dude!
