Ratings and Reviews
A classic re-invented
Not only do I love this game but I was lucky enough to be given the opportunity to test it prior to release. This game fills me full of childhood glee, reminding me of the Christmas I was given it. The game still excites me as much as it did back then. Only now I can play it anywhere. The control system is a huge step forwards in terms of playability as it puts an end to pixel hunting with it's unique item hotspots and clever pick up/look at/talk to controls. Incredibly beautiful re-vamped comic scenes from Dave Gibbons(Watchmen) make the story come to life. The new hint system provides a nibble of information to help but does not give you the answer straight away. Perfect for those frustrating 'aaargh what the heck do I do with this thing' moments. Improved music quality is always a benefit especially with headphones. Maybe I am biased but this game has to be worth £2.99 of anybodies money.
Thanks to Revolution Software for bringing this masterpiece to such a wonderful platform.
Spoilt by silly things
Purchased this because I'm a big fan of the broken sword games. The game play could be better as everything seems a little bit random and nonsensical! It gets frustrating with constant missions backwards and forwards to find items at chance and some of the puzzles aren't really about brain work but hopeful and sometimes desperate guesses. One little example is I was trying to gain access to a locked shed with an "old fashioned" lock, I was searching for ages for an old fashioned key and aimlessly talking to characters to gain a clue only to then find out (purely through finally giving in to the hint option) that you can use a swipe card on it???? One of many silly spoiling factors that has you chasing shadows! The price is good but sometimes the game will close itself down as you scroll the options screen, sending you annoyingly to your phone screen! Storyline is good and old school cartoony characters take you back and the price is reasonable just a few let down factors!
Wonderful point and click adventure
There is a contingent of mobile users who will know exactly what I mean when I say what a joy it is to have remastered nostalgia-filled games that used to sit on enormous desktop machines now reimagined brilliantly for the phone.
This game is slightly different to the LucasFilm games (day of the tentacle, monkey island - also all available for iOS at least) in that you can readily die on this graphic adventure. But with infinite lives, it doesn't really matter. A wonderful dystopian talkie point and click. Well worth it.
