One of the best games ever

I played broken sword around 10 years ago (I'm now 26) and at the time had some help from my Dad to solve many of the puzzles. Now I'm looking on this game with great nostalgia and really enjoy the edited version which includes the new narrative of Nico (hurrah to a joint female-male protagonist!!). It has been remastered nicely to play well on a small decide with an easy click and point feature. It has been made easier by the option to reveal hints, but I guess you can choose not to use them.
This game,e was super when it came out and has stood the test of time with a great story line and a real sense of fun. The graphics are really special (games aren't made like this any more which isn't necessarily a bad thing, but I am so glad there is access to one's like this as well).
It has run smoothly throughout with no software issues.

Still great

Classic point and click. Still good, tricky and funny with added tips if u get stuck. It's probably 4 & half stars, let down slightly by playing on a smartphone, the screen is tiny and some points are too close together, plus every time you check your log book it goes back to page 1 - ok at first, but annoying when you want to look at page 19, having to flick through them all. Still worth your cash.

Nostalgia helps

The game gave you enough playing time for the money but puzzles were not that challenging as in most scenes you could only interact with things you need for the quest which made some puzzles quite obvious. Story was good and kept you interested, characters tried to be witty - at times annoying. Game play was slow as the characters took their time moving from one scene to the next, object interaction was simple (as you could normally only interact with the object you needed) making things a bit easy. You can tell from the graphics this is an old game but it has its charm. I think some of the other reviews are from people with their nostalgic specs on, me however as a new player think £3.99 per episode is steep and won't be buying into the franchise although it's a good game there are way better out there.
