Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Broken Sword - The Smoking Mirror: Remastered isn't appropriate for kids or tweens. It features some violence and blood, images of alcohol consumption, references to sex, and profanity in the dialogue. Examples including getting shot and killed, stealing Absinthe from a man's flask and pouring it into a man's wine glass, carrying around your girlfriend's panties in your pocket, and hearing and seeing cuss words. The app connects to Apple's Game Center.
Is it any good?
Based on the PC and Sony PlayStation graphic adventure game released in 1997, BROKEN SWORD - THE SMOKING MIRROR: REMASTERED follows George Stobbart, a man who witnesses the kidnapping of his journalist girlfriend, Nicole. He embarks on a journey to save her and while doing so, uncovers an epic conspiracy surrounding a forthcoming solar eclipse. Players use their fingers to move George around the hand-painted scenes, interact with characters (and select what topics to chat about), and pick up items to store in his bag. When George faces an obstacle, such as a locked room, you can open up his inventory bag and select the right item for the job (such as a key or another sharp object that could pick the lock). This new portable version features a digital comic, enhanced graphics, a new soundtrack, a better hint system, and optional Dropbox support, which allows you to save your game on one device (such as the iPad) and pick up where you left off another (such as an iPhone). The game also adds Game Center integration, including in-game achievements you can earn.
