Any games like Broken Sword?

I recently discovered broken sword and I'm absolutely hooked! The voice acting, the humor, and the beautiful animations are the highlights for me!
Are there any other games out there similar to this? like, with voice acting and everything?

YES! Broken Sword is AMAZING! I've yet to start the sequel, but I can't wait! The Hector series is pretty good, not as good as Broken Sword but still really good. I think you'd like Phoenix Wright as well.

Yes it is! I just started broken sword 2 and wow! The difference from broken sword 1 is immediate! The graphics and animations have been improved like crazy and it all looks freaking amazing! the voice acting is better than ever too....George is a funny dude lol ! Definitely my fave game on the iOS so far!

I had the hector series a long time ago. It lacked the charm of broken sword and I think I played it for like 5 minutes. Is it worth giving it another try? Does it get interesting later?

Phoenix wright looks good! Is there voice acting involved? That's very important for me ! Thanks a lot for the suggestions dude!

Beneath a steel sky would probably look fine on iPad 2x cause it is all pixel art and would upscale nicely

I wouldn't pass on machinarium just because it doesn't have voice acting, it's a fantastic game, the artwork is simply outstanding

Classics available in the Appstore:

Beneath A Steel Sky
Monkey Island Series
Flight of the Amazon Queen
Simon the Sorcerer 1 and 2

But the best bet is to jailbreak and get ScummVM - which plays almost any Point and Click adventure game. I beat Day of the Tentacle no problems and am very far in Kings Quest 6.
