Side Strafe: It was the early 90's, point-and-click adventure games still had their foot well in the door. Maniac Mansion, Sam & Max, Full Throttle, Police Quest, just a few of the many adventure titles that provided gamers with hours of puzzling, entertaining, questing enjoyment. However, one series stood out among the rest. One series welcomed anyone and everyone to play, you could not die, you could not fail, and you were guaranteed a laugh. Enter, Monkey Island.
