The walkthrough in our guide lists all the mandatory steps you have to perform while playing as Boybrush, e.g. buying a Scurvydog snack, obtain an Outhouse Key, win a race with Chuck, feed a duck or find parents.

Choosing a difficulty level

Before starting a new game, you need to select the difficulty level - Return to Monkey Island: Prelude - walkthrough - Prelude - An Unexpected Story Begins - Return to Monkey Island Walkthrough

Before starting a new game, you need to select the difficulty level:

  1. Casual Mode is a low difficulty level - It will allow you to focus on the plot. It contains fewer puzzles, and the ones you have to solve are less complicated.
  2. Hard Mode is a classic difficulty level - It should be your choice if you want your gameplay to be typical of point'n'click adventure games. Expect more puzzles and more complexity.

Our walkthrough is based on the Hard Mode. Some of the puzzles from the walkthrough may not appear in your game if you are playing on the Casual Mode.
