Something's rotten in the land of the dead, and you're being played for a sucker. Meet Manny Calavera, travel agent at the Department of Death. He sells luxury packages to souls on their four-year journey to eternal rest. But there's trouble in paradise. Help Manny untangle himself from a conspiracy that threatens his very salvation.
One of the most acclaimed adventure games of all time is now back, better than ever. Grim Fandango's epic story of four years in the life (or death) of Manny Calavera, travel agent to the dead, has been remastered to look, sound, and control even better than when it won GameSpot's Game of the Year award upon its original launch. Grim Fandango still stands as a classic of the genre, with unforgettable characters and unique combination of film noir and Mexican folklore.

Ratings and Reviews
As ageless as its undead hero, Grim Fandango still feels as charming, funny, and original as it did back in 1998. It carries you on a wild adventure through the Land of the Dead, where your travel agent sells packages for a happy afterlife to newly departed souls—and uncovers a fiendish plot at work. Innovative art direction will wow first-time players, but with enhanced music and graphics plus hours of developer commentary, there are plenty of reasons to enjoy the game anew.
I loved it!
I played this game on PC several years ago, so when I saw it had been remastered I downloaded it and played again. Thankfully I didn’t remember the solution so it was like playing it all over again. If you like puzzles and have the patience to solve them, this game will keep you entertained for hours. Some puzzles are really hard to solve and you will be few days stuck trying everything and still no able to solve them and it could be frustrating, but that’s part of the fun of playing these kind of games. The puzzles don’t need to be solved in order as someone stated in one of the comment, but in some cases you do need to complete something in order to move forward. If you like games that you advance quickly, this game is not for you. But if you enjoy using your brain, don’t get discouraged if it takes you 1 or 2 days to solve a puzzle, have patience to walk around, talk to everyone and try everything on each part, you will enjoy it. I read someone wrote you don’t have a cursor to check what you can click on, that’s not true. Just hold your finger on the screen and move it around and you will ‘activate’ the cursor and you will be able to see what things are interactive. I didn’t have any problems with sound or saving/loading the game. Hope Lucas Arts remasters other classic games like Monkey Island Saga, Sam & Max, Maniac Mansión, etc. Big fan of Lucas Arts old Adventure games here :)
10 out of 10!
For a game from 1997, this is fantastic even for today’s standards! I assume it’s been reworked a bunch to work on iOS, but I was still blown away by the quality of this game. The graphics were excellent, the story was very creative, the music was very cool, and the voice acting was top-notch. A lot of humor as well, and with a film-noir vibe. I will admit, it was a bit tricky to solve, but I feel that’s what also made it good. It wasn’t too easy. And if I got stuck, I just went to a walkthrough. There were no glitches, and it would auto-save whenever you accomplished anything significant. Thank you to LucasArts for producing the game to begin with, and thank you to Apple for putting it out again. It’s well worth the $5 if you enjoy adventure games that are different and creative. 👍
