‘Broken Sword 2 – the Smoking Mirror: Remastered’ sees the return of George Stobbart and Nico Collard in the sequel to the App Store #1 smash hit ‘Broken Sword 1 – Shadow of the Templars: Director's Cut’, widely praised as the best adventure available for iPhone / iPad.
While investigating a ruthless drug gang, journalist Nico Collard unexpectedly comes across an ancient artifact. Little can she know that the ornately carved obsidian stone will lead her, and her adventuring companion George Stobbart, into a mysterious escapade of intrigue and deceit, in which they must overcome powerful forces and antagonists who will stop at nothing to fulfill their evil ambitions.
‘Broken Sword 2 - the Smoking Mirror: Remastered’ is a stunning update to the million-selling original. Along with an exclusive new interactive digital comic, from ‘Watchmen’ co-creator Dave Gibbons, the game boasts fully animated facial expressions, enhanced graphics throughout, high quality music as well as a context-sensitive hint system, and diary. The game also features Dropbox integration which facilitates a unique cross-platform save-game feature, enabling players to enjoy the same adventure simultaneously on multiple devices, full Game Center integration – including in-game achievements – and many other enhancements.

As good as #1

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. The ending was fun!
Hoping in an update there will be an option to make the characters walk faster. I would have like to be more involved in the final cut scene.
The Broken Sword series is great, and makes for a perfect game on the iPad. Bring them all to the App Store please!
Glad you kept this updated for the system that I’m on! 4 stars until I finish. The controls are finicky. I had to use a hint in the first problem because it was pretty random. The next few challenges have been fun to solve. They are a challenge compared to other point and click adventures. Enjoying it!
