Revolution Software released their second iPhone and iPod touch game over the weekend, which is a remake of another classic point and click adventure game titled Broken Sword: Director’s Cut.
The very first Broken Sword game was released in 1996, with many other versions eventually following in its wake thanks to a fantastic story that gripped nearly all point and click adventure fans. This new iPhone and iPod touch version of the game takes the game to a whole new level, however, with new content, UI, and animations.
Broken Sword: Director’s Cut follows the story of journalist Nico Collard and an American tourist named George Stobbart as they investigate a brutal murder. The game features the same multi-touch interface used in Revolution’s other game, Beneath a Steal Sky – Remastered, to allow you to easily navigate and solve the difficult puzzles. It also features some brand new puzzles, jokes, cut scenes, and animations, which is said to add nearly 20 percent to the total play time.
“I am very proud that the game, and indeed the whole series, has maintained such a loyal following,” says Charles Cecil, managing director, Revolution Software. “Since the launch of iPhone we have been bombarded with requests from fans to produce an app and the innovative Multi-Touch user interface is perfect for an adventure game – it really works very well.”
Broken Sword: Director’s Cut is now available in the App Store for $6.99. Localized versions in French, German, Spanish, and Italian should be available in the App Store shortly.
