The Secret of Monkey Island  1990

The Secret of Monkey Island is a point-and-click adventure. Guybrush Threepwood always wanted to be a pirate, but didn't know how to get started. This humorous point-and-click adventure is the first in the Monkey Island series of games. Guybrush can talk to people and use objects to solve puzzles and advance through the game. A shareware demo was released as part of The Secret of Monkey Island Caribbean Summer Contest in Game Player's Guide, and your goal is to complete the demo and answer questions so that you can enter the contest. There are only five screens in the contest demo. A slightly different demo appeared in the Passport to Adventure three game sampler, which removed a cinematic sequence at the beginning and all references to the contest, but added a sixth screen and four extra unlockable doors, as well as people walking around in the city.
