Monkey Island on your iPhone Posted by: Haggis | Comments (6)
If you own (or stole, in which case you should really turn yourself in to the police) an iPhone or iPod Touch, you can now install ScummVM on it, with which you can, for instance, play the first 2 Monkey Island games no problem, and Curse of Monkey Island with a little juggling. All the gory details on how to get ScummVM on your hipster accessory can be found here at the ScummVM wiki.

Don't kid yourself, iPhone smells like ass BECAUSE of its price. Look at its disadvantages (things less costly cell phones offer) and tell me it's worth the price.

A mere 2-megapixel camera when others have 5-megapixel shooters on board. A 5-hour talk time with not enough battery life to accommodate it. No expansion slot. Go for the 8-gig model and that's it. No 3G: EDGE is
dead. No removable battery: No spare battery when needed? Again, why?

iPhone is another Apple "screw you, consumer" product. Oh, like all Apple products, it will be improved but the folks who purchase an iPhone between June 2007 and February 2009 will be majorly fux0red.

I'm quite happily running Monkey Island on my Windows Mobile 6 phone.
I'm sure it'd be good on the iPhone but the extra buttons even on the HTC Touch help the experience.

Also, the iPhone is not crap. Expensive, yes.

Well in the UK it is around £260 then you have an 18 month contract on top of that so the minimum you can pay is around £900

It's absurd. for that i could just buy a PDA or a Laptop and iPod together...

The iPhone is crap! To expensive to less features or just useless features. And 999€(here in germany without a contract) for a mobile is to much considering there are better mobiles with more features for less money.
But each to their own.

If i had enough money for the iPhone i'd probably just buy the rights to Monkey island

Nice, except it should be more widely available on phones. It'd be pretty cool to have it on all phones. iPhone's are expensive in the UK, they're contract only :(
