About this game

Episode 1 - Paris in the spring

Shots ring out from a gallery… a robbery… a murder… and the beginning of another epic, original Broken Sword adventure.

From multi-award winning Revolution comes the latest mystery in this much loved adventure-puzzle series. Playing as intrepid American George Stobbart and sassy French journalist Nico Collard, you find yourself on the trail of a stolen painting – and a murderous conspiracy. A conspiracy whose roots lie in mysteries older than the written word…

Armed only with logic, integrity and a wry sense of humor - can George and Nico save mankind from disaster? Can you solve the secret of the Serpent’s Curse? A curse some say was forged by the Devil himself…

✪ The latest in the smash hit multi-million selling Broken Sword series
✪ Gripping story, engaging puzzles, voiced by a top quality cast
✪ Highly acclaimed 'slide and tap' interface – simple but hugely powerful
✪ Context-sensitive help system – access hints to solve even the hardest puzzles

* Designed for both phone and tablet devices

Full English / German / French / Italian / Spanish speech with option for subtitles in English, French, German, Spanish, Italian, Polish and Russian.

Agree with other reviewers, it is quite short for the price. A good adventure though, and recognizably in the same spirit as the earlier Broken Sword games. Problems are taxing at times (as they should be for this sort of game) but fair and not ridiculously improbable.

Beautifully crafted by the masters at Revolution Software. It truly captures what made the original Broken Sword an unforgetful experience - unique characters, art style, story and plot. It is a shame the game is short and would have loved to see more of it as I know once it's over, sadly you would have to wait a very long time as I have waited since Broken Sword 2 came out in 1997. Every scene is beautifully crafted and puzzles will keep you engaged. A MUST BUY!

Although I love broken sword, I finished this episode very quickly. I don't think it was worth the Cost sadly. So I was disappointed that I now have to pay for the next part, it feels like a bit of a rip off.

Hi there, thank you for letting us know how you feel. Even if both episodes of the game combined cost less than the same game costs on Steam, it can feel a lot more expensive on mobile. It's a gut feeling that's hard to shake, and we respect that. Thanks for giving it a go, and lots of love from the team at Revolution
