The first chapter of a five-part Monkey Island extravaganza, Launch of the Screaming Narwhal may leave gamers who haven’t encountered the series’ charms a little cold.

True, its bright, fun design and puzzle-packed action is reasonably entertaining, but if you aren’t nostalgic for the first two Monkey Island titles, this download-only release feels a little run of the mill. And even true fans may find the opening chapter a case of too little, too late.
