In 1990 LucasFilm Games published new pirate adventure for Amiga. It got name The Secret of Monkey Island. The game used familiar SCUMM interface from another hit, Maniac Mansion. Monkey Island sold very well and LucasFilm decided to translate it for PC. The PC version had better graphics, but bad sound and music. LucasArts published also CD-ROM version of Monkey Island. The interface of CD-ROM version is like in MI2.
