The Hachiko writes: "At this midpoint in the new Monkey Island episodic series, we pretty much know what to get in the technical department. The graphics and art style are neat, but nothing groundbreaking; they do the job. The animation is decent, but there are some hiccups. The gameplay is relatively solid, but the walking mechanism needs to be scrapped and replaced with a clicking scheme. The only difference from one episode to another is the story and the puzzles. While the overall story isn't pushed forward very much in this episode, the puzzles are possibly the best so far."
