Broken Sword 2 being fixed up for iOS release


With over one million copies sold (according to Revolution Software), the remastered iOS Broken Sword was enough of a success to warrant a similar treatment for the sequel. Wait, did we just say an adventure game sold more than a million copies in 2010? Wow!

Broken Sword: The Smoking Mirror Remastered, due on the App Store this month, features updated graphics, an "interactive digital comic" by artist Dave Gibbons, and an in-game hint system, just like its predecessor. Revolution has also come up with a clever implementation of "cloud" saving to allow you to keep your progress across multiple devices: it uses Dropbox to handle save data.

Update: If you don't want to wait, and don't mind playing on computer, you can get the original version of Broken Swords 2 and 3, along with the updated Broken Sword, from GoG for $7.17 right now. That's $7.17 total.
