The Secret of Monkey Island is a point-and-click graphic adventure game and the first in the Monkey Island series.

To do:
  • There's unused text, as shown here, which is presumably in one of the versions of the game.
  • This features stuff found in the source code that may exist in the final game too, prerelease content, and mentions a possibly pre-final demo on "the rare Passport to Adventure demo disk". In addition, some comments in the Twitter thread for this article mentions some odd undocumented versions.
  • There is more than one floppy disk version of the game.
  • What are the differences between the Roland MT-32 and the CD audio soundtracks?


Revisional Differences
Insert Disk 22 and Press Button to Continue.

Debug Mode

After booting up the game, enter hardyharhar on the keyboard. Then, press Ctrl, Shift and D together. At any time Guybrush is on the screen, press Ctrl and G to go to any room in the game and set the X position for Guybrush to be in that room.

Note that this feature is very error-prone due to the lack of checking where the player is going, so use it carefully.

CD Version Keys

In addition to going to any room in the game, the following keys are available in the CD version:

Key(s) Action
Ctrl + E Examine/Change a SCUMM variable
Ctrl + F Fast mode
Ctrl + O Pick up an object
Ctrl + L Enter in a boot parameter
1 Change character
7, 8 Change text color

The SCUMM Bar has a list of valid rooms and boot parameters. Note that an invalid input is likely to crash the game.

Unused Music

There exists a short audio track in the CD version which doesn't seem to be used anywhere.


A SCUMM interpreter version string appears at 0x868 in the Mac version's DATA resource:
