‘Broken Sword: Director’s Cut’ Released for iPhone

The popular, 1996 point-and-click adventure game from Revolution Software has finally appeared onto the US App Store after some hours of waiting since the release in Aussie.  As an adventure fan myself, I can’t help but feel excited to see the game released by one of the best retro developers on the platform thus far, and the “Director’s Cut” part may just make the experience even better.

The Director’s Cut edition was first released March 21, 2009 on the Wii and DS, adding much more gameplay to the original along with new characters and puzzles.  We can only assume that the iPhone version will be the same, adding much content to the original along with more goodies that weren’t available in the 1996 PC game.

Either way, the game looks a lot better than I remember.  I may be wrong, but time does start to wear down one’s mind.  Broken Sword: Director’s Cut won’t be generous on your wallet though, as you’ll have to shell out $6.99 for the game.  Other than that, I don’t see any other reason not to get it for the nostalgic.

If you want to learn more about the history of Broken Sword, I highly suggest reading the Wikipedia article.

About Daniel

I have been an iPhone game addict ever since the NES emulator came out on the 1.1.4 iPhone 2G. After 2.0 and the App Store came out, my iPhone homescreen has never been the same. Other than writing reviews for App Store games, I play soccer/football, American football, volleyball, and golf. I love going to the beach and fishing on the pier. Some games not available on iPhone/iPod Touch that I truly love are the Call of Duty series, Guitar Hero III, Madden NFL 09, and PGR: Gotham Racing.
