Broken Sword: Shadow Of The Templars has always been a stellar example of video games' potential as a storytelling medium; now it also serves as a masterclass in porting to a handheld platform. With its glistening presentation, adroit controls and additional content, this is arguably one of the finest titles to appear on the App Store to date. Reforging the Sword on the iPhone was a stroke of genius.

What's New in Version 2.0.2

The graphics, storyline, mechanics and flow are all well done. Sometimes the woman is the primary character and sometimes the man. You help them along on their quest with logic decisions and explorations. This is not a hidden object game, or shoot em up game, thank goodness. It is like the classic adventure games but with way better graphics. What I especially like is the hint system. It will give you one clue at a time so you have the opportunity to just get a tiny hint to move along. You can save your game at many different spots, in case you ever want to go back or if you share your iPad, and it automatically saves your spot upon exit.
I am getting hours of game play, this is well worth the price of admission (I paid $3.99,which is pretty rare for me). Speaking of which, once you buy the game, that is it. None of the pay for extra hints, or in-app purchases or any additional charges, which I appreciate, because I expect to pay only one reasonable price for a game and that is it! I see this developer has a sequel game to this, which I will get, but I hope they are making more. It looks like the game "Runaway" is of the same genre, but $1 more, so I might check that out down the road....
On my short FAVORITES list
I read a few of the criticisms of the game, and most seem to be grounded in the players' inability to figure things out. For example, it's not a glitch that you don't have an item, it's that you haven't found the item yet, and may need to look for it elsewhere. Also, the manuscript isn't hard to get out of once you figure out that you first have to zoom in on each of the five parts. The game is somewhat linear so that sometimes you can't do an activity until you've done another one, but that's part of the challenge. With a little patience most tasks can be figured out, and when I'd run out of patience, i found the hint system mostly excellent (there was one exception, but I then figured out what to do).
This game reminded me of Yesterday by Bulkypix, which I also highly recommend to those who haven't yet had the pleasure of playing it.
Unabashedly brilliant & Timeless!!!!
This game took my breath away. I loved every single minute of this experience. It's like watching a movie & being in the movie all at once! The character voices were fantastic too. Even though there wasn't a ton of puzzles, this game kept me interested from the get-go. More more MORE please!!! Thank the stars above there is another game - so thankful to all who had a hand in its creation!!! Make sure to read about how it all started(courtesy of the Directors Cut)& lastly, the music. So lovely & enjoyable! Thank you again!!
PS. I really liked that we had two main characters. It would've been better if Nico had been utilized more. George had a waaaay bigger part & I feel we missed out on Nico. Great game in spite of this fact......Thanks!
