Armed only with logic, integrity and a wry sense of humor - can George and Nico save mankind from disaster? Can you solve the secret of the Serpent’s Curse? A curse some say was forged by the Devil himself...

Crashes on Apple TV

It stopped working on Apple TV. It crashes with every launch of the game now. I have tried to follow the recommendation to close every other app, but it didn't help. And there is still free space in the device.

Try harder next time

Story: 3/5
Fairly decent, but follows the standard BS template. Not very climactic or overly engaging. Most of the time it's simple "um, what's next?" that keeps you going. Way too many reused scenes, characters and ideas from prequels. Some nice new locations, mostly in the second part. Incredibly long wait between the episode releases. Disappointing ending.

Art: 4/5
Lovely 2D art that sometimes doesn't mesh very well with inadequately stylized 3D that gets too apparent. The remastered Shadow of the Templars was much better balanced artistically.

Puzzles: 3/5
Some nice ones, sometimes too big a leap of imagination is required. Then it becomes not about "how" to solve a puzzle, but "what author wanted you to do" guessing. The full info is not always available (Aladdin, Ave Maria, deciphering pictograms).

Verdict: Slightly above average with a cheap gameplay ending. Still would like to see more from the author in the future, with more fresh ideas. 3.5/5

A real must have for anyone who has ever seen BS1 or 2. Hangs here and there but still a 5*! Keep up the good work! And pop out the second chapter ASAP!
