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.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
