Monkey Island: Guybrush Threepwood Kicks Butt
Getting to the final part of The Secret of Monkey Island on iPhone is in general quite a bit harder than actually defeating the game. By the time you have reached the Final Part: Guybrush Kicks Butt you have most of the items you need, have solved most of the quests and really just need to finish off a few things. The game even returns you to Melee Island without any problems, dropping you off on the dock.

Guybrush Threepwood goes to the Chapel
Knowing that that LeChuck is trying to marry the Governess at the church you must make your way through the town. As soon as you leave the docks you will meet a ghost. Eventually you will be forced to use the root beer on it. You will meet one more ghost on the way to the church and should do the same.
Here you will have a conversation with LeChuck in which you discover just how pointless everything you have done is as the Governess has already freed herself, again. She has also in some way gotten her own root beer, but given it to the monkey which is standing in for her. At this point you can delay LeChuck but eventually he will punch you and knock you around the island.

Guybrush Threepwood vs. LeChuck
After being thrown a couple of times you are going to land in the soda machine at Stan’s Used Shipyard. Among the things that fall around you is a bottle of root beer. You have to use this root beer on Stan. If you do not do this quickly enough he will continue to knock you around the island as you do. Once you have used it though, you will get a few cut scenes which can change a bit depending on what you have done earlier in the game including a cut scene of your crew in the cannibals hut if you sank the ship earlier in the game and a few more bits of conversation in which you can point out what you learned, my favorite being: never pay more than 20 dollars for a video game.

While following these instructions will get you through some of the most frustrating parts of this game there is a lot you will miss by simply following the directions here. The conversations with random people, the jokes and all the other things that you can find are what makes Monkey Island so much fun to play and one of the best adventure games of all time. In addition there are a number of sequels to Monkey Island which should be considered by anyone who plays all the way through this game because they explore more of the life of Guybrush Threepwood.
