The director's cut of the classic adventure game Broken Sword has been made available for iPhone and iPod Touch owners via the App Store.
The main changes have been made to the cut scenes and puzzles. The dialogue has also been re-edited to make it fit in with the updates. Touchscreen support has been included, although the bulk of the plot and the classic brain-teasers have been retained in their original form.
Broken Sword is one of the many iconic adventure games that has made its way onto the iPhone, with The Secret of Monkey Island: Special Edition and Beneath a Steel Sky having already rejuvenated the genre for the portable platform.
Because of all of the dialogue and artwork that is needed to make Paris come alive in Broken Sword, the game itself is a fairly substantial 353 megabytes in size. However, at just £3.99 it will not cost the earth and is guaranteed to provide you with hours of entertainment and mental stimulation.
