    Just picked it up. I'ven ever played the sequel, but I loved the original. I have to say the SE version is really polished. Fluid animations, good voice acting so far, and the updated art really shows off the iPads display. So who else picked this one up?

    I second that. A "must have" for the iPad IMHO. One of the few near-console in quality I've played on the iPad.

    Is the pointer control a lot better than the first game on the iPhone? Because i found that made that game almost unplayable.

    I didn't play the iPhone one, but they have redone the controls and I think they are absolutely fine.

    The iPhone one you had to drag the mouse icon around the screen, it sucked!

    Hope they update Monkey 1 with new controls!

    Also hope Fate Of Atlantis is coming!!

    For those worried about the controls, you'll be surprised how different this is to the first SOMI for the iPhone. Limme quote touchgen here:

    I have never played this game in any form, but it looks kinda cool. Unfortunately, I can't seem to find anything about the game itself ( ie., what's the point of the game, etc ). What is this game about?

    thanks!

    Download the free version, its essentially a point and click adventure game. I only like this type of game cause I used to play games like it. One of my favorite was Indian Jones Fate of Atlantis Talkie Version. If you don't like the free trial you won't like the full version.
