Monkey Island has returned to our gaming screens for the first time in over a decade with Return to Monkey Island. It features the point-and-click goodness and humor fans of the series know and love, with all your favorite characters such as Guybrush Threepwood and LeChuck returning for repeat performances. This time you have two difficulty levels to choose from. So, what’s the difference between Casual and Hard mode in Return to Monkey Island?

What difficulty should I choose in Return to Monkey Island?

The important difference between Casual and Hard mode is the difficulty of the puzzles. Players who simply want to enjoy the storyline, humor, and callbacks to the old games can play on Casual Mode. But those players who want more of a point-and-click challenge should opt for Hard mode. However, the difference isn’t that great – you just get more puzzles to solve. For example, on Hard Mode, there are a few extra steps required to get Carla to lend you a book, while the path through the Forest challenge is also different.

Can you save the game on both difficulties in Return to Monkey Island?

Yes, you can, so don’t panic if you’re not sure which mode you want to play. The game has multiple save slots and you can save a run-through of Casual and Hard modes at the same time. You’ll know the difference in your save files, because the Hard mode saves have a red skull and crossbones icon in the bottom right corner.
