Broken Sword for iPhone released

Pick up the Director's Cut for £3.99.

Revolution Software has released Broken Sword: The Director's Cut for iPhone and iPod touch.

Just like in the old days, the game sees Nico Collard and George Stobbard getting up to all sorts of adventures involving the Knights Templar. There are new cut-scenes and animations by comic book artist Dave Gibbons, plus a context-sensitive help system to aid thickies. On top of all that you get extra content which is said to increase the playtime of the original by around 20 per cent.

"I am very proud that the game, and indeed the whole series, has maintained such a loyal following," said Revolution boss Charles Cecil.

"Since the launch of iPhone we have been bombarded with requests from fans to produce an app and the innovative Multi-Touch user interface is perfect for an adventure game - it really works very well."

Broken Sword: The Director's Cut is priced at £3.99.
