Spot the Monkey Island reference!

Post by GeorgeQGreg on Mon Oct 17, 2011 5:05 pm

Well, the people who made Monkey made most of the older Humongous games, and they seem to be chock full of references to Monkey Island! Or at least I think so! So, just write what you think is a Monkey Island reference below!

First that comes to mind is the Fish that got a trophy for holding his breath above the water for 15 minutes in Freddi Fish 2! TAKE THAT GUYBRUSH!!!

Levels 91-100 of Water Worries have a piratey-looking skeleton in the background, holding on to a treasure chest bearing the name "G. Th[obscured]od."

Remember the Cheese Squigglies in Putt-Putt Saves the Zoo? The exact same snack can be found in the little alligator's bowl on Scabb Island in Monkey Island 2. Apparently it's the favorite snack of both Putt-Putt and Guybrush!

I'm surprised that this escaped unnoticed for so long. The location of Spy Fox 1, the island of Acidophilus, shares it's name with the volcano on Blood Island in CoMI!

I didn't know that volcano even had a name!

Bumpity.
Upon looking up Acidophilus, it's actually a pun, a "biologist bonus" of the sorts -- http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lactobacillus_acidophilus
Both locations are milk-related.
Besides, it seems SF1 came out early '97, CMI came out late '97. It's probably just a coincidence.
