Screaming Narwhal suffers from its very nature of being the opening episode to a five-part series. It eases you in perhaps a little too gently. It's instantly engaging, for sure, but plods a little at times. And by the time it kicks back into gear, it ends on a cliffhanger. There's a slight feeling of it being a tentative toe in the water, Telltale keen to just get the first episode right, without pushing too hard in fear of it breaking. To criticise too harshly would be unfair, however. After all, this is as much about introducing new players to Monkey Island as servicing veteran fans (and there's certainly plenty of that). And, crucially, it left Telegraph wanting more.
