THANK YOU for updating!!! 😀😀😀

*** Updated review:
Awesome, awesome, awesome. Thank you so much for listening, and releasing an update so quickly!!! The storyline, gameplay, voice talent, graphics, and music are so well done and beautifully interwoven... I can’t wait to start playing the next chapter! Thanks again developers!

*** Previous review:
I just purchased the BrokenSword bundle, and everything was amazing!... until I installed the standard iOS 13.1.1 update, and now for some reason my gameplay screen is very small, and appears in the upper left-hand corner of my LCD display. It’s very hard to see anything, and nearly impossible to click. I’m extremely sad, because I’m only in the first few stages of BS1, and now I can’t progress. Please, Developers, send help soon!!!

...Other than that, obviously, the game is fantastic.

** I’ve also tried restarting the game, restarting my iPhone, and deleting & reinstalling the app entirely. Sadly, no success... it really needs an update.

Oddly, it seems BS2’s gameplay is just fine! but — since I’d rather start with the first one — I’m now just waiting... :’-(

Butchered the game, but playable

I hate that they removed the gorgeous cutscenes—especially the opening one. It does not improve the game. The added scenes with Nico are fine( I like her of course). It’s still fun to play, but lacking. I still had fun, but object interactions are extremely frustrating and I’m constantly hunting around for the right pixels to add object x to object y. It’s worth $5 easily just for the nostalgia. I’ve played all of these games and love them thanks to the voice acting and humor. I don’t need the revamped character portraits when they’re talking and I really wish that they left the cutscenes alone. I’m hoping the BS2 does not have the cutscenes deleted.

5 stars for the original game(I removed 2due to deleting the animations also removing blood lol, it’s not a children’s game). I love questioning the endless characters and showing them every object in my inventory and how funny their personalities are. People complaining about it don’t understand point and click adventure games and why we love them.

Felt like a I was playing a 70's or 80's adventure cartoon movie with the way the audio sounded and the cartoon's art style looks like something from "The Hobbit" era. Many hours of gameplay involved. I am blown away. I wish part 3 and 4 were also added to iOS. Getting part 2 and 5 now.
