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... :’-(

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.

Something Fresh

July 2019

Rather than the same puzzles as other point/click games, Broken Sword uses logic to sneak around. There are a few puzzles, but those are not the common ones that I’ve seen. This is one of my favorites; right up there with Thimbleweed Park.

I had a bit of trouble with clicking on some touch points, however I’m on iPhone 6s, so that’s on me. It worked best if I flicked my finger downward over the spots (ie: inventory bag).

Storyline, voice acting, puzzles, graphics, music, hint system, mechanics.

Hoping in an update there will be an option to make the characters walk faster.
