Curse of Monkey Island This FAQ/Walkthrough by Evil Sponge Version 1.0 May 29, 2001 Table of Contents: I. Introduction II. Version History III. Characters IV. Walkthrough V. Insult List VI. Secret Stuff VII. Legal Stuff PART I: INTRODUCTION "But...at what...cost?!" Yes, it's the third game of the Monkey Island Saga! But, alas, this was made without Ron Gilbert, the genious behind the first two. However, this is still a great game in my 'umble opinion. The sword fighting is back, there's voices, and...well, it's funny. The voice actors picked couldn't have been better. Dominic Armato appears as the "mighty" Guybrush Threepwood, and according to some sources is Guybrush Threepwood. Whether or not that last bit be true, Dominic certainly provides the only voice our lovable hero could ever have. Anywho, this game is quite cool. This current section is for the Easier version of this game, so if you're in the wrong spot, hit the ol' back button. Enjoy the game! PART II: VERSION HISTORY Version 1.0: first version, added everything. PART III: CHARACTERS Coming Soon! PART IV: WALKTHROUGH ----------------------------------------------- |PART I: THE DEMISE OF THE ZOMBIE PIRATE LeCHUCK| ----------------------------------------------- "Is it a really Evil looking doorstop?" Once you gain control of our intrepid hero, talk to the short pirate. After some short conversation, you discover that Bloodnose is really Wally. Some of you may remember him from Monkey 2, and some may not. Anywho, talk to Wally. His sales hype is funny, but you don't have to listen to it if you feel the need to escape quickly. To end the conversation, and progress into the game, insult Wally's pirate abilities. Keep insulting him and eventually he breaks down and cries. Poor guy. Ah,well. Grab the hook that he dropped and then grab the ramrod on the wall. Now use the cannon. Your mission, whether you choose to except it or not, is to fire the cannon at the undead army boats, thus sinking the enemy and saving the fort. This Walkthrough will self destruct in 5... ...4... ...3... ...2... ...1... ...you can come out from under the couch now, I was just kidding. Guybrush automatically comments on the debris floating toward the ship. Lean out the window to take a look. The optional funny things to do hear is listen to Murray, talk to Murray, and/or knock Murray off the piece of wood with the Ramrod. What you need to do here is use the hook on the Ramrod, and the combination on the floating debris, which turns out to be a skeletal arm clutching a sword. Now, lean back from whence you came. Use the sword on the cannon, then use the cannon. Hehe... Once in the hold, you need to find and pick up the bag. Wooden nickels...score! Pick up the big honkin' diamond that was underneath the bag. Use the diamond on the porthole window. ----------------------------- |PART II: THE CURSE GETS WORSE| ----------------------------- "Si! He dejado en libertad los prisioneros y ahora vengo por ti!" Once control is regained, leave the beach. On the leftish side of the overview map is a shipwreck in a swamp. Head there. You are greeted by Murray, who provides another amusing conversation. After that's done, head into the ship. Take in the surroundings and then yank on the alligator's tongue. Talk to the Voodoo Lady about whatever. Eventually, you mention Elaine. Once she asks where you hid her, pick any response but it all ends the same way. The governor's been kidnapped! Meanwhile, back at the Voodoo Shop, Guybrush and the Voodoo Lady discuss their plans. Across town, Wally learns that Blondebeard is carrying Kenny's baby. ...or... You talk to the Voodoo Lady about how to get Elaine back. It turns out that you need to get to Blood Island and find the uncursed diamond of equal or lesser value. But first you need a Ship, a Map, a Crew, and, naturally, Elaine. ****Getting a Ship**** Head to the town of Puerto Pollo. In the rear of the town is a theater (the tall building with the "Spear!" banner on the front), enter through the rear entrance...on the side. Pick up the dandruff on the coat, which turns out to be Lice. Get the wand from the hat, by the mirror, and use it on the hat. This yields a Ventriloquism Book. Now, leave the theater and go to the Barbary Coast. Hang out there and wait until Haggis puts down the comb. Now, use the Lice with the Comb and watch the amusing scene. Talk to Haggis about getting a haircut. While he's snipping away pull on the handle on the side of your chair. Now pick up the Paper Weight that's on the book. The pages of the book begin to blow, and Haggis runs off to look for another one. Now, use the handle a few more times until you're high enough to get the scissors. Once you're lowered again, leave the shop. Head out behind Blondebeard's and find the undergrowth and mysterious flower. Use the scissors and you get the flower, as well as the description of the flower if you haven't already read the plaque. It turns out to be a Flower of Ipecac. Now use the scissors with the rest of the bushes and you reveal a path that leads to Danjer Cove...eventually. The first time you travel this path, you encounter a tree and a Snake Crossing sign. Look at the sign and you get eaten by a snake. Once you're inside the snake pick up the bulge to the left of you. The first time you pick it up you get a Fabregé Egg, the next time you get some vacuum cleaner attachments, then you get lots-o-stuff. Now take a look in your inventory. Use the Ipecac flower with the Syrup. Now use the Syrup of Ipecac with the snake's head. You are then hurled out of the snake and into... ...quicksand. If you wait long enough, the chicken sinks. Also, if you read the plaque then everyone, for the rest of the game, will say "Pappapissu!" instead of "Ouch!" Not useful, but amusing. Anywho, to get out of the quick sand you need to first use one of your balloons with the paperweight. Now pick up the thorny plant and get a thorn. Now pick up a reed. Use the thorn with the reed. Blow on your balloon and it'll eventually float over the "Life Saving Vine". Use your home-made peashooter with the balloon and Guybrush'll automatically grab the vine and pull himself to safety. At last, Danjer Cove. But first, head all the way back to Blondebeard's and show him you reservation, from the snake's belly, when he asks for it. Talk to the quiet patron, then push him. Grab the knife from his back and then head back to Danjer Cove. Use the boat and row to the big ship. Use the bread knife with the plank and then board the ship. Try to enter the door and you're greeted by Mr. Fossey. Talk to him for a little, then pick any punishment. Since there's no plank, you get tarred and feathered. Head to Blondebeard's and he'll think that you're El Pollo Diablo. Talk to him and you get whacked over the head with a frying pan. You wake up in the captain's cabin of the Sea Cucumber. Use the Ventriloquism Book on Captain LeChimp. After the amusing dialog, you hop out and get the map. You now have the Ship...and chicken grease! ****Getting Elaine**** Head to the Theater and enter through the rear. Head up the steps and you arrive at the lighting box. Push the handle. Now head back down the steps and you get to see a little bit of the play. Hmm...juggling. "Are you pondering what I'm pondering?" "I think so, Evil Sponge, but I don't think armadillos have lips." Whether they do or not, use the chicken grease with the cannon balls in the now open chest. Watch as the cannon balls slip and cause chaos. Hehe. Now head onto stage and grab/use the shovel. ****Getting the Map**** First, go to Blondebeard's. Once inside, get a biscuit and eat it. Use the maggots with the chicken on the table. Pick up the pass you see inside. Now leave and head to the beach. Talk to the Cabana boy. There are many funny things that happen if you don't give him the membership card right away. But eventually, you need to just give it to him. Now, pick up three fluffy towels. Dip them all in the ice bucket to get them all wet. Now use them with the Cabana boy. After he runs off, grab the cooking oil and venture out onto the beach. Use the towels with the hot sand, then walk onto the towel and repeat the process until you're across. Talk to the sunbather, who is, in fact, Palido Domingo. If you talked to Slappy earlier in the game, you'll know that Palido owns a map of Blood Island. Unfortunately, it's tattooed onto his back. Talk to Palido for a little, just cause it's funny (my favorite section is the "You've got the SAVAGE pale!" lines), then grab the mug from his stomach and leave. Head back to town and go to Kenny's. Use your mug with the bottomless one on Kenny's stand. Now order some lemonade. Kenny learns a valuable lesson, and you get...a mug. Grab Kenny's pitcher and use it with the Red Dye #2 vats. Now head back to the beach. Use the mug with Palido, and then pour the dye into the mug. Tell Palido that he's burning and he'll turn over. Now use the cooking oil with the map, then pick it up. Yuck... ****Getting the Crew**** **Recruit Haggis McMutton** Go to the Fort and pick up the burning ember that's laying on the beach. Head up to the Field. Use the bread knife with the sawhorse. Now use the burning ember with the trail of rum. Now enter the Barbary Coast and talk to Haggis. Ask him about joining your crew. Agree to the Caber Toss Challenge. Now, Guybrush will throw the rubber tree that you just blew up and win. You've got Haggis! **Recruit Edward "Snugglecakes" VanHelgen** Go to the back entrance of the Field and enter. Pick up the glove from the pocket of the jacket. Head back to the Barbary Coast and use the glove with VanHelgan. He accepts your challenge! While choosing the weapon, close the lid of the middle gun case and pick the Banjo. Watch what VanHelgan plays, then you need to play the appropriate notes in the pauses. After a bit, Eddy shows off and Guybrush realizes that he can't beat him. So grab one of the pistols and shoot VanHelgan's banjo. You've got VanHelgan! **Recruit Cutthroat Bill** Pick up the jawbreaker from the floor. Go to the Swamp and use the wooden nickels to get the Jerky Flavored Gum. While you're there, grab the pin from the paper voodoo doll. Head to Blondebeard's and give him the jawbreaker. Now give him some gum. When he blows a bubble, pop it with the pin and pick up the gold tooth. Now leave and show the tooth to Bill and he joins the crew! ---------------------------------- |PART III: THREE SHEETS TO THE WIND| ---------------------------------- "With Iron and Vitamins it's been fortified!" The first step is to defeat the pirates. Haggis asks you if you want help with the naval battles or not. It really doesn't matter, but if they help the battles are laughably easy. At any rate, look at the map on the table. Take your ship over to a pirate ship and you engage in battle. Once you win the naval battle you get to sword fight. Even if you lose to the pirate in the sword fight, you don't have to beat his ship again. After you beat the pirates, and take their treasure, use the map to head back to Puerto Pollo. Talk to Kenny and trade in your booty for the next model of cannon. Keep fighting pirates until you have a large number of insults/witty comebacks stored up, then face Rottingham. Beat him in both areas of combat and you get your map back! Check out the Insult List if you're having trouble winning. ------------------------------------------------------------ |PART IV: The Bartender, The Thieves, His Aunt, and Her Lover| ------------------------------------------------------------ "That diamond belongs in a museum!" "So do post-impressionist paintings, Mr. Threepwood. So do post-impressionist paintings." "What the heck is that supposed to mean?" "One day, you will understand..." ****Retrieving the Ring**** First head to the Inn. Talk to the Bartender, and find out that he's got a hangover. Now pick up the sagging cushion on the one barstool. Next, grab the recipe book and leave. The book says that you need Pepper, Egg, and Hair of the Dog that bit ya. To find the Pepper, simply head to the Windmill. Pick up a pepper from the plant beside the door. The Dog Hair is at Mort's. Upon arriving there, you see a dog named Old Blind Pew. Grab a hunk of his fur, then pick up his treats and give them to him. You get bitten! The Egg can be found at the Beach. First, grab the Mallet and Chisel from Mort's. Use the cushion with the rocks under the rubber tree. Now hit the tree with the mallet, and pick up the Egg. Head back to the Inn and turn over all the ingredients. Griswald Goodsoup comes alive once more and gives you the rest of the hangover cure. Talk to him, and discuss the Goodsoup family diamond. Ask him how it would be possible to get into his Aunt's tomb. Die, huh? Well, this calls for a drink! Order whatever kind of drink you'd like. Now enter the inventory and use the chisel to open the Head-B-Clear, then use that with the drink. Down the beverage, and, after a hilarious scene, Guybrush falls over dead. Or does he? After you get buried, and the credits stop rolling, use the chisel with the coffin. Pick up the nails, then open the coffin in the center. Stan appears and automatically talks to you, then kicks you out. But not before he gives you his business card. Leave the crypt and the graveyard. Talk to Griswald about not getting buried in his Aunt's tomb, then try to convince him that you're a Goodsoup. He doesn't believe you, so head upstairs. Open the door with the gigantic peephole in it and head inside the room. Use the mallet with the nail sticking out of the wall. Now leave the room to return to the hallway. Pick up the portrait nail. Enter the other room in the hallway and pull down the bed. Use the nails with the bed, then use the single nail with the bed. Grab the book from the corpse. Walk downstairs and talk to Griswald about Goodsoup family history, and Guybrush will cleverly use the book. Head to Stan's and ask for an insurance policy and pay with the Gold Tooth. Now head back up to the Inn, and kill yourself again. After you get out of the coffin, look through the crumbling hole...hehe. Now head to the left a little and talk to Minne Stronie Goodsoup. You learn that LeChuck stole the huge diamond from the wedding band and sold it to some smugglers on Skull Island. Now...if only that door wasn't locked... Head left some more and pick up the crowbar. Try to walk toward that crack in the wall and get ambushed by Murray. Pick him up, then look through the crack. You can talk to Mort for a little if you want, but to progress you need to use the Skeleton Arm to grab the lantern. Set the Lantern on the coffin and use Murray with the crack in the wall. After the very funny scene, Mort unlocks the gate and you can leave. Head back to the Inn. Enter the door in the back/right and grab the Death Certificate and the Big Whoop Magnet from the fridge. Head back out into the "lobby" and talk to Madame Xima. Keep asking about your fortune until she reads it. You get a Death Card right away. Guybrush keeps asking for more until there are 5 Death Cards on the table. Pick them up, then head upstairs. Go into the room with the skeleton on the bed and use the Crowbar with the boarded up hole. Now use the Crowbar with the nails. After Charles DeGoulash woos his new bride, the wedding band is left behind in the mortal coil. Guybrush heads in and grabs it. Exit the crypt and enter Stan's. Hand over the Death Certificate and get A lot of money. Now head back to the Inn. Grab the Tip Jar, then leave and head to the Windmill. Open the door and head up. Now break out the Tip Jar, and fill it with the sugar water in the barral. Enter the door up there to leave, then head to Elaine. Use the Chisel with the lid, then use the Jar filled with sugar water with the stump. Once the Fireflies enter the jar, put the Lid on and grab the jar. Go up the the Lighthouse. Put the Jar in the Lantern Post. Ta-dah! Go to the Cannibal Village and grab the Measuring Cup. Go to the Shipwreck and grab the bottle of Capn. Nick's Shaving Soap from the sand. Bite the cork off, and use the Pin with it. Head to the Beach and use the Measuring Cup with the water. Now use the Big Whoop Magnet with the Pin in Cork, and use the combo with the water in the cup. Now talk to the Flying Welshman. Ask for a Ferry to Skull Island, and he'll refuse you. Give him the homemade compass that you just constructed, and you'll be all set. Now you can ask him to ferry you to the island, and he'll agree. Once there you get to see once of the funniest scenes of the game. Just the Welshman's intro to the Island...it's hilarious! Climb up the to top and talk to LaFoot. When you ask to be lowered down, he'll grudgingly agree. However, the little twerp lets go the winch and you fall. Quickly use your Umbrella and float safely to the ledge. Once inside, open with "I have got so much money, it's almost embarrassing." King Andre will then talk to you. Use any responses, then try to make a deal when you get a chance. Just agree to the poker game. After you get your hand, enter the inventory screen. If you keep playing, the hands are amusing. To win, just use the 5 Death Cards with the lousy hand. They can't beat 5 of a kind, so naturally they try to kill you. Guybrush deftly escapes with the diamond in tow, and leaves the island. *If you didn't deploy the Umbrella in time, Guybrush throws LaFoot off the cliff before he leaves* ****Uncursing Elaine**** Go to the Shipwreck and try to grab the Hand Lotion by Haggis. He'll stop you, so ask him how you can get it. You need a tar/tar-like substance. Hmmm.... Go to the Inn and walk into that back room area. Use the Chisel with the Nacho Cheese Wheel. Enter the Cannibal Village and grab the Giant Block of Tofu and the Auger. Use the Auger with the Giant Block of Tofu and wear the newly created mask. Walk upwards-ish and talk to Lemonhead. He'll think you're a visiting cannibal and let you up to see the sacrifice. Watch the...odd...ritual, then throw some Nacho Cheese into the smoldering caldera. The volcano erupts, and you need to be at the Inn. Use the Nacho Cheese with the pot, then take that to Haggis and you have the Hand Lotion. Onward to Elaine! Use the Hand Lotion with the Cursed Ring. Now, combine your diamond with the ring band, then use the ring with Elaine's finger. --------------------------------- |PART V: KISS OF THE SPIDER-MONKEY| --------------------------------- "Does too infinity!" "Arrr...Curse you and your diabolical debate skills!" Talk to LeChuck for awhile, and eventually he'll zap you. Open the door of the car-thing and Mini-Guybrush will exit. Now you're in the main part of the Carnival of the Dammed. Note that Guybrush says his head is foggy. This calls for a Hangover Cure! **Getting the Pepper** Walk to the right until you get to the Snowcone stand. Pick up the Pepper Mill that's sitting on the stand. **Getting the Hair of the Dog that Bit ya** Push Dinghy Dog. Keep pushing him until he bites you, at which time Guybrush will automatically grab some hair. **Getting the Egg** Talk to Dinghy Dog and ask about prizes. Ask him to guess your age and you win. You can pick any prize, but ultimately you can only get Murray or the Anchor. Grab the Anchor. Talk to Wharf Rat if you want to. But you need to put the Anchor on top of the stack or pies by Wharf Rat's cannon. Make him shoot the cannon, and the mime will get knocked out. Open the gate and look through the hole that the mime was at. Guybrush will taunt the Wharf Rat, and get hit by the pie. ***Grow up*** Talk to the Snow Cone Vendor inquire about his wares. Order a plain snow cone, then head into the inventory. Use the Meringue, Pepper Mill, and Dog Hair with the snow cone. Now eat the disgusting invention. --------------------------------------- |PART VI: GUYBRUSH KICKS BUTT ONCE AGAIN| --------------------------------------- "Aye she'll be the death of me yet...I mean again" ****Finish Him!!**** A.k.a. Defeat the Daemon Pirate LeChuck Hop out of the Roller Coaster in the 1st screen. Grab the rope, then hop into the next available car. On the 2nd section, jump out and grab the Keg o' Rum. Once you get the 3rd screen, grab the Flask of Oil in the lantern. Screen 4 has a Giant Snow Monkey. Walk up the hill thing and go to the monkey arm. Use the Keg o' Rum with the Arm. Now use the Flask of Oil with the Rope, and use the oiled rope with the rum barrel. Head to the bottom and wait. After a bit, LeChuck will appear. Use the Pepper Mill with him, and watch the ending! PART V: INSULT LIST First, the regular pirates: Insult: Every enemy I've met I've annihilated! Witty Retort: With your breath, I'm sure they all suffocated. Insult: You're as repulsive as a monkey in a negligee. Witty Retort: I look THAT much like your fiancée? Insult: Would you like to be buried or cremated? Witty Retort: With you around, I'd prefer to be fumigated. Insult: Heaven preserve me! You look like something that's died! Witty Retort: The only way you'll be preserved is in formaldehyde. Insult: I'll skewer you, like a sow at a buffet. Witty Retort: When I'm done with YOU, you'll be a boneless fillet! Insult: Killing you would be justifiable homicide. Witty Retort: Then killing you must be justifiable fungicide. Insult: En garde! Touche! Witty Retort: Oh, that is so cliche! Insult: Throughout the Caribbean my great deeds are celebrated! Witty Retort: Too bad they're all fabricated. Insult: When your father first saw you, he must have been mortified. Witty Retort: At least mine can be identified. Insult: You can't match my witty repartee. Witty Retort: I could, if you would use some breath spray. Insult: I can't rest until you've been exterminated! Witty Retort: Then perhaps you should switch to decaffeinated. Insult: You're the ugliest monster ever created. Witty Retort: If you don't count all the ones you've dated. Insult: I'll leave you devastated, mutilated and perforated. Witty Retort: Your odor alone makes me aggravated, agitated, and infuriated! Insult: Coming face to face with me must leave you petrified. Witty Retort: Is that your face? I thought it was your backside! Insult: I'll hound you night and day! Witty Retort: Then be a good dog. Sit! Stay! Insult: I have never seen such clumsy swordplay! Witty Retort: You would have, but you were always running away. Now, Capt. Rottingham: Rottingham: Your stench would make an outhouse cleaner irritated! Witty Retort: Then perhaps you should switch to decaffeinated. Rottingham: When I'm done, your body will be rotted and putrefied! Witty Retort: Then killing you must be justifiable fungicide. Rottingham: Your lips look as they belong on the catch of the day! Witty Retort: When I'm done with YOU, you'll be a boneless fillet! Rottingham: You're a disgrace to your species, you're so undignified! Witty Retort: At least mine can be identified. Rottingham: Your looks would make pigs nauseated. Witty Retort: If you don't count all the ones you've dated. Rottingham: My attacks have left entire islands depopulated! Witty Retort: With your breath, I'm sure they all suffocated. Rottingham: You have the sex appeal of a Shar-Pei. Witty Retort: I look THAT much like your fiancée? Rottingham: My skills with a sword are highly venerated. Witty Retort: Too bad they're all fabricated. Rottingham: You'll find I'm dogged and relentless to my prey! Witty Retort: Then be a good dog. Sit! Stay! Rottingham: I can't tell which of my traits has you the most intimidated. Witty Retort: Your odor alone makes me aggravated, agitated, and infuriated! Rottingham: I give you a choice. You can be gutted, or decapitated! Witty Retort: With you around, I'd prefer to be fumigated. Rottingham: Nothing can stop me from blowing you away! Witty Retort: I could, if you would use some breath spray. Rottingham: I have never lost a melee! Witty Retort: You would have, but you were always running away. Rottingham: Never before have I faced someone so sissified. Witty Retort: Is that your face? I thought it was your backside! Rottingham: Nothing on this earth can save your sorry hide! Witty Retort: The only way you'll be preserved is in formaldehyde. Rottingham: Your mother wears a toupee! Witty Retort: Oh, that is so cliche! PART VI: SECRET STUFF Secret of Monkey Island: In the Goodsoup Family Crypt, look through the crack in the wall by the tree roots. Guybrush's head appears in Melee forest, from the very stump that Guybrush noticed a series of underground catacombs. At the beach on Blood Island, "use" the water about 30 times and Guybrush eventually goes underwater to find his drowned self from Secret of Monkey Island. Cheat Codes: Press SHIFT+W to win the game. When using the cannon in the beginning, type "lapostal" and you turn on the "unlimited cannonballs" cheat. If you type it again, the cheat remains on. Press SHIFT+V while cannon battling for the map to automatically win. Plunder Island Clock: This clock reads the time off of your CPU, so the time is actually right. It also chimes LeChuck's theme every half hour. Palido's Tan: When you ask Palido how long he's been tanning, his response can depend on the CPU calendar. For instance, in January he'll wish you a happy new year. PART VII: LEGAL STUFF This is usually the section where I thank all the people who helped me out with the game. However, I got through all by my self so I can't really thank anyone for that. However, a big thank you goes out to LucasArts, Larry Ahern, and Jonathan Ackley for creating this game, as well as Ron Gilbert for creating Monkey Island and its original characters.
