Is there no DOS version?

@Human Bean: There are several versions of the .adf files, but you only need to unpack 4 of them (disk 1-4) and load them into your Amiga emulator (like FS-UAE Launcher). You should also find some Kickstart.rom files and import them into the emulator.

Press F5 to save, load, or quit. Note that the into takes a little while to finish and you have to let it finish before you can load your game.

You can get the dos version here :

The steam version isn't the original. The original is abandonware. Steam has the remastered version, which has hideous graphics.

Isn't working with OS X El Capitan, when extracting the file, i get two .000 files unable to open. Any idea?

I first played the Amiga version (decades ago) but lately I've been playing the DOS EGA version and I'm very impressed at how good it looks! These guys really put a lot of attention to detail in the dithering, to make the EGA screens look good. It's now my favorite version. And I think Loom EGA also looks great...

I played the remastered version of this Monkey island, a very good game.
