Sega has announced plans to launch The Cave for iOS on Thursday. The game was created by Ron Gilbert, a veteran game designer who made the first two Monkey Island games, Maniac Mansion and other hit games. It'll be $4.99.

The Cave is an adventure game with puzzles to solve. You select three of seven characters to explore a magical talking cave. The mechanics of the game will be familiar to anyone who's played platformers; you can explore the inner recesses of the cave by collecting objects.

The Cave was released for Mac, PC and game console platforms earlier this year, but this marks the iOS debut.

Are you a Monkey Island fan? Looking forward to this one? Or have you already played it on another platform? Let me know in the comments.
