Broken Sword – Old School Adventure Works on iPad

Broken Sword: Director's CutBroken Sword is an old-school adventure game. Point and click games actually work better on an iPad and iPhone touchscreen than they did originally with a mouse and keyboard. The original game was actually published in 1996, but with this director’s cut and remastered graphics you would never know.

In Broken Sword you play two main characters a photo journalist and an American tourist. Throughout the game you must interview various characters, solve puzzles, and put the clues together to discover who committed the murder. The music and the voice acting are both very good.  Several times I got stuck, but I was able to get hints to make it past each level.

If you are looking for a thinking game where you solve real world puzzles with items you pick up and people you talk to then Broken Sword – Shadow of the Templars is for you. This is app approved.
