What's better than having one of the best point and click adventure games from the 90s on your iPhone? Having that same wonderful game on your iPad and fully optimized, of course! Revolution Software has just released an iPad-optimized version of Broken Sword: Director's Cut, which features new content and a special comic treat. Broken Sword: Director’s Cut HD 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 only other game available in the App Store, Beneath a Steal Sky – Remastered, to allow you to easily navigate and solve the many difficult puzzles. It also features new puzzles, jokes, cut scenes, and animations not found in the original version of the game. This new iPad version of Broken Sword also contains a few items not found in the iPhone version, most notably a digital version of the Broken Sword comic which must be unlocked in-game. Sure, it may not make up for the lack of universal support, but it is certainly a nice gesture to go along with those optimized graphics. Broken Sword: Director’s Cut HD is now available in the App Store for $7.99.
